Massage guns, also known as percussion massagers, have taken the fitness and wellness world by storm. These handheld devices, which offer deep tissue massage, enable the ability to enhance recovery, promote muscle relaxation, and even improve range of motion. 

In this blog, we'll delve into the benefits of massage guns, how they function, and introduce you to the Vibit Gun MAX, one of the most advanced percussion managers on the market.


Massage gun therapy in consumer's hands

The concept of percussive massage therapy, the principle upon which massage guns operate, has been around for decades. 

However, the first device resembling what we now know as a massage gun was invented by Dr. Jason Wersland back in 2008. The initial prototype was developed after Dr. Wersland sought a solution for his own pain due to a motorcycle accident. 

The first commercial product was launched in 2016, which is considered one of the pivotal moments when massage guns started becoming available to the general public. Since then, the popularity of these devices has skyrocketed, making them widely accessible to consumers around the world. 


The Benefits of Massage Guns

Massage guns use percussive therapy, which is a form of massage that delivers rapid bursts of pressure into the muscle tissue. This technique has several benefits:

Enhanced Muscle Recovery: 

According to a study published in the Journal of Clinical and Diagnostic Research, vibration therapy and massage are both effective in preventing delayed onset muscle soreness (DOMS) which users often experience after exercise (Jain & Janssen, 2020).

Increased Blood Flow:

By increasing blood circulation to specific areas, massage guns promote the flow of oxygen and nutrients to the muscles, aiding in recovery and muscle growth.

Reduced Muscle Pain and Stiffness:

The American Journal of Physical Medicine and Rehabilitation published a study that showed vibration therapy significantly reduced muscle soreness and improved muscle performance (Kamper & Tichenor, 2017).

Improved Flexibility and Range of Motion: 

A systematic review in the *International Journal of Sports Physical Therapy* concluded that vibratory devices can improve range of motion and flexibility when combined with static stretching (Saggini et al., 2018).

How Do Massage Guns Work?

Massage guns work by delivering concentrated, rapid, short-duration pulses deep into the muscle tissues. This action helps to break up scar tissue, relieve muscle spasms, and reduce fluid buildup in the muscle tissues. 

As a result, this can alleviate pain and discomfort, while promoting greater mobility.

Vibit Gun MAX: Advanced percussive massage

The Vibit Gun MAX is a top-tier massage gun that stands out in the market for several reasons. Here's why it's a great choice:

Quiet Operation: 

Thanks to our ultra-low-friction, brushless QuietPower motor, the Vibit Gun MAX is engineered with superior noise reduction technology. At only 30 decibels (with 60 decibels being the normal conversion volume) it operates quietly, making it less disruptive and more enjoyable to use.

Powerful, deep massages:

The Vibit Gun MAX provides plenty of power to help provide the percussive massage needed to effectively alleviate muscle pain. With 12mm amplitude and up to 53 percussions per second, the Vibit Gun MAX is a heavy-duty device that will speed up your recovery time by 30%.

Variable Speeds:

With multiple speed settings, users can customize the intensity of the massage to suit their comfort level and target different muscle groups effectively.

Long Battery Life:

The Vibit Gun MAX boasts a long battery life, at 6 hours of usage per charge - double the industry standard for most percussive massage gun devices.

Ergonomic Design: 

The Vibit Gun MAX handle is angled at 99 degrees, minimising wrist strain compared to other right-angle percussion massage devices. Its design ensures ease of use and the ability to reach different parts of the body without strain.


Percussion massage guns are a great tool in your muscle recovery arsenal.

With effective application, users can speed up their recovery by up to 30% - meaning more time being active, and less time experiencing muscle pain. With the Vibit Gun MAX, you can enjoy the benefits of a deep tissue massage from the comfort of your own home. Whether you're an athlete looking to improve your recovery times, or simply someone seeking relief from muscle pain and stiffness, the Vibit Gun MAX is an excellent tool to consider.
