Here are the best massage gun options on the market:
1.Best Overall:HoMedics Pro Physio
The quiet and lightweight size of the HoMedics Pro Physio makes it easier to use. The massage gun relaxes stiff, sore muscles and comes with six interchangeable heads of different sizes, designed for different purposes.
You have the option of adding heat or using the frozen massage head, which provides hot and cold massages for priming and cooling down the muscles before a workout, respectively. The device heats up to 47⁰C in 2 minutes, or freezes the interchangeable cold gel head for 4 hours for a cold massage. These different temperatures prepare muscles for exercise by promoting blood flow and providing the perfect post-workout cooldown, respectively.
