You can do all the pre-workout stretching in the world, but that doesn’t mean you’ll escape stiff muscles and nagging pain after a particularly grueling gym session. When those knots and their accompanying aches and soreness start barking, your options usually boil down to either a deep tissue massage or just grinning and bearing it.
Since no one wants to live with pain, we recommend option 1. And rather than spending up to $100 for a one-hour massage therapy session, the Evertone Prosage Thermo Percussion Massager ($149, currently 25% off) can work out all that tension and muscle ache on your schedule.
Originally designed for professional athletes, this Kickstarter-funded massage gun tackles tight, sore muscles with a combination of high-impact percussion and Theralite heating that breaks up stiffness and knots while speeding up recovery after workouts.
With variable speed settings and interchangeable heads, the Prosage Thermo penetrates muscle tissue with up to 3,200 percussions per minute, alleviating lactic acid buildup as it improves blood flow.
Meanwhile, the Theralite heating can either be used to warm up and activate muscle fibers before your workout or soothe pain and reduce spasms in muscle, joints, tendons, and ligaments after strenuous sessions.
The Prosage Thermo offers up a full body massage without keeping a professional massage therapist on staff. Right now, it’s also $50 off the regular price at $149.
