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.

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.

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.

MuscleGun Carbon

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.

5

Hyperice Hypervolt Plus

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.
