If you’ve ever gotten a massage, you know how life changing it can be for your body; whether you’re a strong athlete, someone who does casual exercise, or someone who has a few aches and pains. There is simply nothing better than getting relief from your aching muscles and joints and feeling yourself de-stress.
However, massages can be expensive so many of us cannot afford to pay for them on a regular basis. At Pulseroll, we’ve got the cost-effective solution for you.
Using a percussion massage gun can be the medicine your muscles need, so read on to learn more about our muscle recovery and our innovative products.
Why use a muscle massage gun?
There are actually two types of muscle soreness: acute muscle soreness and delayed onset muscle soreness (DOMS). Acute muscle soreness is felt during exercise or immediately after, whereas DOMS come on the scene a couple of days later.
As uncomfortable as it may be, it is important that you don’t let this muscle soreness slow down your progress or stop you from reaching those fitness goals. The more consistent you are with your training the easier it will get.
There are some really easy ways to ease soreness in the muscles after exercise, like using the new Pulseroll percussion massage gun to get the most effective massage and the best results. Our percussion massage gun benefits are endless – if you’re wondering why you should use a muscle massage gun, we’ve got the answers for you.
How does it work?
Using a percussion massage gun works to provide therapy to deliver strong pulses and vibrations into the muscle tissue, promoting better circulation, relaxing the muscles, and easing pain and soreness.
The massage gun enables you to apply focused pressure, similar to that of a deep tissue massage. You can use to it target specific muscle groups and smaller areas that are causing you particular pain or discomfort as the massage gun eases soreness through myofascial release.
Myofascial release refers to a technique where pressure is applied to the muscle to ease pain by relaxing contracted muscles, improving blood flow, and stimulating the stretch reflex in muscles. Fascia is a thin, tough, elastic type of connective tissue that wraps the muscle in the human body. When you use certain muscles during exercise or intense weight training, the fascia tears and this is what causes inflammation.
The technique of myofascial release is commonly used in physiotherapy clinics alongside other treatments and massage techniques, but can also be performed on yourself with the right equipment.
How to use a percussion massage gun:
- Make sure your Pulseroll Massage Gun is charged, then turn on using the switch on the bottom of the handle
- Start with the lowest setting and then increase the speed to find whatever feels most comfortable for you
- It is important to make sure you do not use the gun directly on a bone or joint
- When using the massage gun, you can use it in circular motions or by using an up and down motion – do whatever is most comfortable for you
- You can move it slowly or fast, again depending on your comfort level
- Don’t spend too long on the same area, do not use for more than 6 minutes per muscle group.
