Percussion Therapy Gun: a last minute gift idea
Check out the latest in percussion therapy – the Opove G3 Pro Massage Gun.
There are lots of these devices out there- made by Hyperice ( think of the compact green vibrating sphere that I reviewed in an earlier blog https://justmuscles.net/foam-roller/accelerate-foam-rolling/) and Theragun for instance- and some are significantly more expensive than others, but this got great reviews on Amazon even though it’s not so highly priced.
The history of this device is actually based on a jigsaw- and the manufacturer placed a round ball on the end rather than a saw blade. The effect is the same, but those manufacturers did little to dampen the noise of the jigsaw, and it was difficult to have a normal conversation.
Not so with the improved later versions…the noise is significantly dampened. When the ball hits a tight spot (or bone- be careful!), it starts “thumping” to break up the tightness. You might not know there is a tight spot there, but the “gun” will let you know. Additionally, the handle is extra long which allows you to spin it onto your back comfortably while still hanging on.
If you need muscle relief fast, here is one in-home solution for you! It comes in a handy little case with four attachments to hit various body parts.
See it in action below, and if you need a last minute gift idea, it’s not inexpensive but it will be in the house for the whole family to enjoy…including you! 🙂
