Massage guns are becoming more popular as an effective way to massage aching muscles and warming up, however these guns are rather hefty, fine for using at home but not ideal for taking to the gym, or to sports events.
Don’t let its small stature fool you, this gun has plenty of power packed into its 1kg body, it comes in a compact, hard carry case which stores all the attachments, if you prefer just the one attachment it makes the Mini Massage Gun even more portable. If you have never used as massage gun before don’t be intimidated by its’ looks, the rapid strokes stimulate blood flow to the muscles, helping in recovery, releasing tightness, increasing flexibility, flushing away lactic acid and reducing DOMS. This kit includes the massage gun in the distinct Pulseroll red and black design, the type-c recharger cable and four attachment heads. The small round head has been designed to provide an overall, full body muscle massage and can be used for a focused and deeper muscle massage, the pneumatic head (sounds scary but feels amazing) is perfect for sensitive muscles, working out those painful areas.
The spinal head, as the name suggests, is suited for a spinal muscle massage, with two areas that sit either side of the spin and lastly the bullet head has been designed for trigger point therapy and can be used for advanced localised deep muscle massage. The built-in lithium-ion battery can last up to 6 hours depending on the power setting and will take about 3 hours to fully recharge. The gun can level up from 1500 rpm, to 2000 rpm, 2500 and reaching 3000 rpm ensuring you get the right pressure for those specific muscles. The LED screen displays both the battery life and the power setting. The Mini Gun is easy to use and its smaller body actually makes it easier to access some areas, unlike the rollers you cannot work on your own back so you will need to ask a buddy for help. There isn’t much not to love about this massage gun, it feels amazing after a hard workout session, it is reasonably quiet (some massage guns make a hell of a racket), super user friendly and wonderfully portable.
