How a Massage Gun Works

Updated: Nov 14, 2022

Massage guns feel good, look cool, but do they actually work? Yes!


A massage gun is an instrument that applies rapid and repetitive pressure perpendicular to the body. This causes the surrounding muscles to experience both pressure and vibration. This creates an increased signal between the muscle and the brain.


Massage guns are great for warm-up, recovery, and performance enhancement. Here are just some of the benefits of massage guns:


▪️ Increases muscle power / strength

▪️ Prevents muscle atrophy

▪️ Increases joint and muscle stability

▪️ Increases proprioceptive/neuro-muscular function

▪️ Increases flexibility of muscles and joints

▪️ Decreases muscle soreness/stiffness

▪️ Prevents loss of bone mass

▪️ Increases blood flow and oxygen uptake

▪️ Hormone response leading to pain reduction

▪️ Improves lymphatic drainage


Massage guns are a great technique and easy to do at home. However, in order to get the full effect, make sure you know the root cause of your pain. Sometimes your leg pain is coming from your back and not your leg, etc. etc. So if you constantly feel pain, tightness, stiffness in the same area over and over, it might be time to have it looked at professionally.
