Stiff neck? Hip pain? How ‘bout aches in the ball of your foot? Just about all of us could use our own personal massage therapist to take care of all those aches and pains. While everyone deserves a weekly appointment to have the knots kneaded out of our muscles, it’s a luxury service with the price tag to match. Lucky for us, a savvy bunch of Amazon shoppers has uncovered an alternative: the Youdgee Muscle Massage Gun and right now it’s on sale for just $30 down from $70 — that’s nearly 60% off!!
If you have a lot of pain, this massage gun has a lot of options for relieving it. “This is a good massage gun,” shared one of more than 5,000 five-star fans. “I have used it for pain relief, I have shared it for pain relief, my dog even loves it.” That’s saying a lot!
To get to all that soreness, this massage gun comes with five different massage heads to help you target different types of pain and muscles: flat head (relaxation and all muscles), u-shaped (shoulders, spine, neck), ball (lower back, hips, thighs, calves), the thumb head (palm, sole of the foot) and the bullet head (joints, palms and soles).
“It has a bunch of different heads for different areas,” explained a rave reviewer. “My favorite [head] is the "finger" for the balls of my feet, which I have a lot of trouble with.”
This kit also includes a guide to the different muscle groups and the recommended massage times. That’s helpful information if you plan to use this for recovery.
The massage gun also features six different speed levels: 1800 RPM (30 Hz) to 3500 RPM (58 Hz). That allows you to choose just how much kneading you need — different activities get different treatments.
“I used this after snow removal on driveway and side walks,” wrote a happy shopper. “I was starting to feel aches in my arms, shoulders and back. I started using this on my arms and shoulders and got immediate relief. I found that using the 50 hertz setting worked really well for me. After using this for 15 minutes I felt much better.”
“This product gets all the kinks out and is our go to for our aching muscles,” shared another satisfied customer. “With the multiple attachments and easy to use button features, we were able to pick the right options for our needs.”
DIY massage therapy
While pain relief is the major reason shoppers love this massage gun, many of them use it to mimic what their massage therapists do.
“I bought this product after spending several hundred dollars on physical therapy,” shared a savvy shopper. “I noticed the massage the therapist did at the end of each session was the most helpful and wanted to replicate that at home as needed. However, I didn't want to spend a lot of money. This has been ideal and I've used it weekly. It really helps loosen my bad hip and allows me to walk without pain for several days. Easy to use. Long battery life. In my case, it works better when someone else works it as I can't get to the right muscle and apply the pressure needed. I would highly recommend and am thrilled I got more than anticipated without paying the high price tag.”
“I bought this after going to countless chiropractor and massage appointments,” wrote another rave reviewer. “This is a game changer. It's like a body radar for where your knots are. 20-30 seconds a few times on sore muscles is pure magic.”
