The shrunken yet robust design means it’s easy to slip into your gym bag, or if you want to travel light it comes with its own travel pouch for easy portability. Cheaper options tend to be good for entry-level users who are testing out a massage gun for the first time, but may not be as durable as other, more expensive options. Those looking for higher stall force and longer-lasting battery life will likely have to shell out more than $200. The cheapest massage gun on our list is available for less than $80, while our top recommendation, the Opove Apex Massage Gun was $250 when we published this list.
It also has six head attachments, so you have many options to choose from. The Pro massage gun is the top of the line from Theragun and a fan favorite. It didn’t perform as well as other options on our list, but we think it’s still a good investment if you’re seeking a truly deep tissue massage. The best percussion massagers can help you relieve sore muscles and carved wooden german shepherd recover faster. The right one for you could be based on several factors, including how much it weighs, how much noise it makes, how many pounds per minute it delivers, and, of course, price. The 4th-generation Theragun Pro is expensive, but it’s also a smart device with an OLED screen and four distinct arm positions to help you reach muscles in awkward places.
But if you don’t want to pay that much, the other percussive massage guns on the list are also among the best on the market. To find the most effective massage gun, you’ll want to consider speed, amplitude and stall force. The most effective massage guns typically feature speeds between 2,000 and 3,200 RPM. Amplitude measures how deep a massage gun can penetrate into your muscles, and is measured in millimeters. You’ll want to look for an amplitude of 12 to 16 millimeters for the best results.
It comes with a protective carrying case, and the rechargeable battery lasts 2.5 hours. Theragun provides the industry standard in percussion massagers, and the Mini is no exception. A thumb-oriented power button controls the speed adjustment, and three LED lights indicate the speed. (The device has no battery-life indicator.) The button is a bit stiff and makes an audible click when pressed. The handle—one of the slimmest among the models in our test group—is rounded at the bottom, a design that we found comfortable to grip. This massage gun’s specs do not list a stall force, but the device does have a pressure sensor .
The Musclegun Carbon is a travel-sized massage gun that’s comfortable to use and easy to wield. During testing, our editor found it quieter than other options she tried. But she also noted that it wasn’t as powerful as massage guns with a higher stall force, and said she would ultimately reach for a more powerful massage gun in order to relieve muscle tension. This, along with some other flaws, ultimately led us to dock points for its overall value. We gave this massage gun a perfect score of 5 out of 5 stars for effectiveness, comfort, ease of use, and value, which is why it was an easy choice for our best overall spot. Our tester noted that this massage gun was very effective at reaching specific trigger points and particularly sore spots.
But with three adapters, you can charge it on the go, and we like that its light weight makes it easy to maneuver into hard-to-reach spots like the low back or feet. It’s a budget-friendlier option from the brand that still provides all the features you need for sore muscle relief. It comes with four head attachments and a smart app that our tester notes was very helpful with initial setup and even provides how-to video guides.
