Massage guns have taken the world by storm. They’ve become particularly popular in the fitness community and among athletes, but there are so many benefits to them that they’re frequently used by people for other reasons too. There are a lot of options on the market right now, so it might be difficult to make a decision on what gun to purchase, especially if you don’t know what to look for. REBEL™ provides the best massage guns available in Canada, and we’re going to tell you exactly why. First, though, let’s have a look at what massage guns are and what they’re good for.
What is a massage gun?
A massage gun is a handheld device that offers vibration or percussive therapy. This is a process that gives deep massage to muscle tissue by means of rapid bursts of pressure.
Who might need one?
In short, anyone! As mentioned, massage guns are great for aiding recovery and warming up before a workout, making them popular for use by professional athletes as well as people who like to stay active. You don’t need to go to the gym five times a week to use one for your recovery; you’ll reap the benefits no matter what your activity levels are. If you suffer from a lot of aches, maybe from sitting at a desk all day or from standing for long periods of time, or maybe even from age, then a massage gun can help loosen up your tight muscles and relieve pain. This is why it’s a common tool for chiropractors to use on their patients. Lastly, they also have great effects on mood, which means they can be very useful for people who suffer a lot of stress or often feel down. There’s also a lot of muscle tension associated with being stressed, and that can easily lead to pain in the long run without regular massages.
The benefits of massage guns
The benefits of using massage guns are numerous and include:
- They increase mobility
- They aid muscle recovery after exercise and makes it less painful
- They enable muscle to grow faster
- They relieve pain and alleviate tightness and sore muscles
- They increase blood circulation, which is great for your organs and muscles
- They have a positive impact on your mood and reduce anxiety, as they release endorphins and increase serotonin levels
You might think that this seems a lot like a regular massage. Well, not really. Massage guns are set apart from manual massages for various reasons:
- They can be used to target the specific muscles that are sore, no full-body treatment required
- They can be used at home without needing to travel somewhere
- They can be used at any time when they’re needed, without you being required to book an appointment days in advance
- In the long run, buying one massage gun is going to be cheaper than regularly going for expensive massages with massage therapists
- You can use them yourself, meaning you can give yourself a massage even when no one is around to help you out
- Unlike massage chairs and similar tools, massage guns are small and portable, allowing them to be carried around the house and be brought along on travels
Why ours are the best
You’re probably convinced by now that you need to get a massage gun, and you’re ready to do some research on which one to buy. REBEL™ has the best ones available on the Canadian market, and we’re going to tell you why. Other massage guns on the market of subpar quality are:
- Not as powerful and effective
- Likely to break much faster and need to be replaced
- In need of being charged more often, making them difficult to use without having them plugged in
- Probably not coming with a warranty, meaning you’ll be on your own if it breaks
You don’t want any of those issues. If you’re going to invest in something like this, you want it to last. REBEL™ currently has two different models available for purchase: the REBEL™ PRO and the REBEL™ mini. When it comes to the REBEL™ PRO, the things that make it stand out are:
- It has a 60 lbs maximum strike force, which is on the highest end of the spectrum and much higher than a lot of lower quality massage guns
- It’s the only massage gun on the market with seven different extensions; all of these have different purposes, from general deep tissue to specifically providing fascia release, making it extremely easy for you to adjust it to your exact needs
- It has up to 200 hours of battery life, meaning you can use it for ages without needing to recharge it and can bring it along on trips without needing to remember to bring a charger
- It has an ergonomic, duo-grip design, which means it easy and comfortable to hold
- The handles are slip-resistant, so no matter how fast the gun is pulsating, you won’t feel like it’s falling out of your hands
- There are 15 different intensity levels, so you can always make adjustments according to how much power you need
- We offer a 100-day money back guarantee, so there’s nothing to lose from trying it out
- The REBEL™ PRO comes with lifetime warranty
And there’s more! To make the massage guns we offer even more individualised according to your needs, we also offer the REBEL™ mini. This massage gun has many of the benefits of the PRO, including the strike force, grip design and battery life, but it’s even smaller than a regular massage gun and it can fit inside your pocket. The size, and the fact that it reaches full charge in only 1.5 hours, makes the mini as portable as something this powerful can be. It’s perfect for the traveller or the person who wishes to regularly bring a massage gun along to the gym or their workplace.
