As the name sounds, a massage gun is like a ‘gun’ designed to help in relaxing muscle tightness and improving blood flow.
It has recently proven to be one of the best massage machines that restore and even improve muscular functionality.
The machine gun can be used virtually by all individuals experiencing pain, most especially muscular pains.
HOW DOES IT WORK?
Massage guns work using the pain gate theory. The theory believes that it is possible to ‘deceive’ the nervous system, thereby reducing pain. There should be proper stimulation and responsiveness of the nervous system during pain sensation.
This is possible by sending the right frequency of nerve impulses making the pain ‘run away.’ This is exactly what the machine employed in giving the effective result: tricking the system into acting faster on pain.
WHY DO YOU NEED IT?
Massage guns are the right choice when it comes to fighting pain. Generally, the following benefits are gotten from using any type of massage guns:
● Release and reduce lactate in the body
● Help in accelerating muscular recovery
● Improve and enhance the range of motion
● Open up the closed circulatory system, thereby improving blood flow
● Ease the pain associated with soft tissue damage
● Fasten the growth of muscle
● Enhance muscle responsiveness
● Decrease the occurrence of Delayed Onset Muscle Soreness(DOMS)
WHAT DOES IT DO?
Gives a higher recovery time by sustaining and improving blood flow to the affected area
● Helps in preventing muscle soreness after an extensive and exhaustive workout
● Fasten the healing process of muscles by majorly increasing oxygen supply and growth hormones.
● Prevent fatigue by suppressing the accumulation of lactic acid.
● It can also be used in massaging other areas, apart from muscular areas.
