Massage guns are gradually becoming popular in the fitness world but much more than being a trend, they have been proven over the years to benefit the body in numerous ways. They are commonly found among fitness pros, athletes, celebrities, and a lot more other people actively trying to improve their health and fitness level.
In addition to improving the muscles, several studies have also shown the effectiveness of massage therapy in certain medical conditions, as it helps relieve pain, anxiety, and illnesses such as depression, fibromyalgia and cancer. A research article by Hindawi shows the effectiveness of vibration massage on fibromyalgia, of which a massage gun comes in handy.
However, as more people opt for massage guns, one of the key things they look out for is the convenience that comes with it. This is why a mini massage gun is even more preferable for most people due to its size and easier carriage.
Why Do You Need a Massage Gun?
There are several reasons why anyone should own a massage gun and not just fitness pros, athletes or celebrities. Some of these reasons include:
1. It Helps With Enhanced Workout Performance
The primary market for massage guns were fitness enthusiasts and athletes, which means that it works effectively to enhance workout performance. You can use a massage gun pre-workout to warm up your muscles and increase range of motion and also post-workout to speed up muscle recovery. This tool is often used by fitness trainers and therapists for their clients but how much more if you owned one to use in the comfort of your home?
2. It Helps Relieve Pain
Massage guns work like the traditional massage to help relieve pain in the muscles, whether in the superficial or deep tissues. The gun helps flush out extracellular fluids from the muscle tissue such as lymph fluid and venous blood into the circulatory system, which helps to reduce inflammation and pain. This tool has also become a popular recovery tool over the years to relieve pain resulting from the intense workout.
Also, most people today tend to spend long hours sitting behind their desks with a poor posture or have their necks bent over their phones for a long time. This could result in pain in the neck, shoulders, and most commonly the lower back. The massage gun can be a quicker and faster way to relieve the pain and reduce the risk of possible future soreness.
A study in the Journal of Clinical & Diagnostic Research shows the effectiveness of vibration therapy and traditional massage in reducing delayed onset muscle soreness (DOMS). It does this by sending direct vibrating pulses through the muscles. The massage gun can also help relax tight muscles and break up scar tissue and adhesions.
3. It Helps You Sleep Better
A massage gun, like the traditional massage, can help you relax and unwind after a long day. This is because the massage helps release endorphins, such as dopamine, which is also known as the feel-good hormone to help improve your mood. It also downregulates the nervous system to reduce the stress hormones and help you relax even better. According to a 2014 study, breast cancer patients are more likely to sleep better with massage therapy. Also, since massage helps relieve pain, anxiety, and depression, you are more likely to sleep better naturally.
4. It is More Convenient
Rather than going to see your therapist or visit the spa regularly to ease your muscles, you can as well buy a massage gun to serve a similar purpose. The massage gun targets every part of your body that you need a massage and with the right gun attachment, you can also target the hard-to-reach areas. In a previous article, we explained the different types of massage gun attachment and why you need one. Owning one would save you the stress of leaving your comfort zone all the time and if you calculate the cost, in the long run, you would find out that it’s cheaper to have your massage tool.
