Five of the best massage guns
With prices ranging from £175 to £549
HoMedics Pro Physio massage gun
The Pro Physio offers both hot and cold massages, via two different heads. The heat supposedly enhances blood flow, while a cold massage is recommended to relieve knots during post-workout cool downs.
Therabody Theragun mini ultra portable
This pocket-sized Theragun model is a good budget alternative to the full-size one. It remains impressively powerful, but its reach is inevitably less good.
Therabody Theragun Pro massage gun
The Theragun is endorsed by elite athletes, including two-time Olympic champion Mo Farah. It comes with six attachments that are quick and easy to swap out, and is simple to use – but it can be quite noisy on its higher settings.
With its long curved handle, the MuscleGun is useful for people who suffer from aches and pains in hard-to-reach spots – such as on the back.
Hyperice Hypervolt Plus
The sleek Hypervolt Plus has a powerful massage arm which may make the device a bit heavy for some, though it does have three speeds of percussion. A light ring indicates battery level and it’s Bluetooth connected.
