This massager is extremely easy to use and capable of a wide variety of tasks, ranging from relaxation massage through to specific deep work.
General Purpose Massager (Massage Gun)
Using a hand held massager is simple. You place the vibrating head on the muscle, making good contact, and allow the vibration to penetrate.
How vibration massage works
“It is the vibrations that penetrate”
When using a vibration massager the vibrations transfer from the head of the machine to the muscle and penetrate deeply. There’s no need to press the head in for penetration. There’s a lot of miss-information around about this, but vibrations will always penetrate much more than pressing in. That’s why buildings can fall over 100 km away from the centre of an earthquake.
What the vibrations do
When the vibrations do penetrate scientists have found that they have all the effects shown in this diagram. The scientifically proven effects of vibration:
- relax muscles
- increase blood flow
- reduces pain
- causes “stretching” of muscle
- reduces post exercise soreness (DOMS)
- speeds recovery
- assist healing
- increase the performance of muscles
How to use the massager
The basic usage of a vibration massage is simple. You sit the massager on the part to be massaged and let the vibration soak in. Remember it is the vibration that does the work so there’s no need to press in or move the massager around. Once a part has had sufficient massage move the machine to the next spot that needs massaging and repeat.
Pain or discomfort
Vibration massager uses vibration to penetrate. There’s no need to press in or cause pain. Infect pain can cause muscle to tens which can work against massage. If you experience pain or discomfort we recommend you either slow the massager to a comfortable level or stop.
Which head to use
Our general-purpose massager comes with a choice of three interchangeable heads. This often comes down to personal preference. However, our massagers work by sending vibrations into the tissues, which the larger flat head does very well. The multi projection head is not for “digging in”, but helps resist pattering at higher speeds. The smaller head is useful for accessing some harder to get areas.
