I used to think of a Theragun as a device for helping those with pain from exercising, chronic issues or sitting in the same position for too long. No matter the reason for your pain, the percussive therapy devices (aka massage guns) can help, but they can also help you to relax and even help you fall asleep.
"For centuries humans have understood how applying pressure to the body helped reduce tension and increase relaxation. Percussive therapy utilizes this language of pressure to communicate with your nervous system. When you use Theragun for 2-8 minutes on your body, you actually turn off your stress switch and turn on your relax switch," Founder of Theragun Dr. Jason Wersland said.
I recently gave the Theragun G3PRO a try for myself before and after an evening workout and felt the immediate benefits. Before cardio and strength training, I used the device to warm up and prepare my muscles in place of active stretching. After, I used it to help my muscles recover and I felt zero soreness the following day.
However, using a Theragun post-workout, I also felt so relaxed; it was like I was in a trance, as if I had just left a yoga class. Maybe a better comparison is the feeling you get after a massage, because that’s essentially what you’re getting.
According to the product description, the Theragun works by increasing blood flow to support the body’s natural recovery process through a powerful massage. To use, you want to lightly float the device over your muscles, being careful not to apply too much pressure. The brand also has an app with guides on how to treat different parts of your body for maximum effectiveness.
In addition to the current sale, Theragun is also donating a portion of all sales to support Feeding America and other similar charities across the world. The brand vows that for each Theragun sold, 100 meals will be provided to people across America. Theragun is also donating its devices to hospital break rooms to help nurses, doctors and other healthcare workers relieve tension and stress. Medical professionals in need can even send a direct message to @theragun on Instagram and they will send a device.
