The massage gun pro, also known as the deep myofascial impactor, is a soft tissue rehabilitation tool that relaxes the soft tissues of the body through high frequency impact.

At the same time, the first use of the fascia gun needs to be used under the guidance of professionals. It is best to proceed step by step, otherwise it may cause damage.

The massage gun pro uses its special high-speed motor to drive the “gun head”, generating high-frequency vibrations that act on the deep layers of the muscles, reducing local tissue tension, relieving pain, and promoting blood circulation.

The massage gun for athletes uses high-frequency vibration shocks to relax the rigid soft tissue, allowing the muscles and nerves to achieve deep relaxation. The fascia gun can generate 2000-3000 vibrations per minute.

The human body will produce a lot of lactic acid after strenuous exercise. If it is not relaxed in time, the muscles will experience varying degrees of soreness or soreness the next day. The massage gun for athletes can also promote blood circulation, assist the return of venous blood, optimize the body’s metabolism, and speed up the discharge of metabolic waste.
