How to Use the Massage Gun Correctly?

The use of the massage gun is very simple, you only need to follow the following 3 principles to get started easily:

Ⅰ. Choose the right massage force for the massage gun

A professional home massage gun muscle massager can usually adjust the frequency of vibration. It is recommended to choose an appropriate massage intensity when massaging. As long as it is recommended that novices use the massage gun, start with the lowest vibration frequency, and then feel the muscle soreness after the body adapts. There is no need to deliberately pursue pain.

Due to the way of vibration, the sensitivity of pain will be reduced, so the massage gun directly uses high-intensity frequency, which may be beyond the range that the muscles can bear and get injured without knowing it. Different parts are suitable for different strengths, and adjusting the strength in time can increase the massage effect.

Ⅱ. The massage gun does not need to be pressed deliberately

During the process of fascial gun use, you only need to stick to the surface of the skin, move up and down slowly, without special pressure. In addition, holding the massage gun not only focuses on the sore point, but also changes the angle in time, so that the muscles around the pain point can also be massaged. The effect will be more divided.

Because there is a relationship between muscles and muscles, for example, we often bend our arms and slide the phone for too long, which will cause shoulder soreness. If you use a massage gun to massage sore shoulders, the effect will definitely be greatly reduced.

When you feel that the force is not enough, you can adjust the frequency of the massage gun, which not only saves effort, but also prevents the hand from being numb due to rapid vibration.

Ⅲ. Use the massage gun to massage one part for about 30 seconds to 1 minute

The vibration frequency of the massage gun is very fast, so you don't have to stay in the same part for too long when you massage. When you encounter a sore spot, you can stop for about 30 seconds to 1 minute to have an effect. If you hit one point for too long, for example using a percussion massager for plantar fasciitis over 30 minutes, it will make muscle injuries and bruises instead.

Using the massage gun, the body can be relaxed, so that it will not conflict with the power of the vibration.

Ⅳ. Choose the right massage head for the massage gun

The selection of massage heads is very important. It is necessary to choose the appropriate massage heads according to the massaged parts in order to achieve the purpose of soothing and safety. The following 6 massage heads are the most common:

1. Bullet: used for deep muscles to strengthen local pain points;

2. Flat head: the largest contact area with the body, suitable for pushing the muscles of the whole body;

3. Pneumatic head: soft and close to the body, suitable for soft tissue and muscle relaxation;

4. Big round head: suitable for muscles of the whole body;

5. Small round head: suitable for muscles of the whole body;

6. Fork head: suitable for the muscles on both sides of the neck and spine.
