Do massage guns actually work?
Massage guns offer what’s known as percussive or vibration therapy. This type of massage provides rapid bursts of pressure into the body’s muscle tissue.
Is fascia a real thing?
Scientists are still learning about the fascia. In fact, there’s a lot of debate on its official definition. However, it’s widely accepted that fascia is a continuous layer of connective tissue that covers all your muscles, bones, organs, and nerves. It’s mostly made of collagen, and it helps to give form to your body.
In the process of exercise, the muscles are innervated by nerves. Sometimes the muscles can relax after exercise, but the nerves are still in a state of excitement, which may cause continuous muscle tension and stiffness. In addition, in some high-intensity exercise or long-term fatigue of maintaining a posture, the muscles and fascia may be slightly damaged.

After fitness or exercise, the sympathetic nerves are over-excited, causing the muscles to be too tense when they are static, resulting in fascial adhesions, which affects the recovery of growth.
When fascia is adhered or damaged, the body often has many uncomfortable reactions: muscle stiffness, stiffness, tightness, local skin temperature is low, moist; muscle tissue is loose, inelastic or elastic, sunken; subcutaneous, deep muscle, There are irregular lump-shaped or string-shaped hard tissues between the sutures.
This is a way for the body to protect muscles, and it is also a protective mechanism that hinders muscle recovery. In particular, some deep-seated muscles are difficult to reach by foam shafts or vibrating foam shafts.
Therefore, it is necessary to release this extra excitement through fascia relaxation, so that the above problems can be solved and alleviated. With dynamic stretching before training and static stretching after training, the muscles and joints are more beautiful and safe. Compared with our daily use of foam rollers to relax, the fascia gun relaxes muscles and fascia more deeply and accurately.
Massage guns are used by sports enthusiasts and fitness enthusiasts.
The fascia gun produces 2000-3000 vibrations per minute and helps the muscles and soft tissues relax and recover through the gun head impacting the target part of the body and promote blood circulation. At the same time, it effectively dissipates the large amount of creatine produced by the human body due to fatigue in exercise, work, and life, and has a very good effect of relieving body fatigue; its high-frequency oscillation effect can penetrate deep skeletal muscles and relax skeletal muscles instantly. Meridians, nerves, and blood vessels flowed instantly.
