Everywhere we look these days we’re bombarded with content of people going to town on themselves with a massage gun and we want in. Heck, even model Miranda Kerr can’t get enough of the nifty invention.
Let’s be real – who isn’t looking for a self-administered rigorous massage sesh in lieu of getting the absolute sh*t thrashed out of them by a registered masseuse? Seriously, is getting wrung out like a sponge in the comfort of our own home too much to ask for?
So, if you’re after the kind of violent relief that only a motorised pummeling can deliver, then look no further than these seven massage guns.
Therabody Theragun G3 Massage Gun
In the world of massage guns, the Theragun reigns supreme (if you’re willing to spend an extra bit of coin that is). Relieve muscle tension and tightness and soothe aches and pains with this ergonomic pick that aids in warming up muscles and muscle recovery by utilising up to 18kg of ‘no-stall’ force. This bad boy also comes with a protective travel case and four additional foam attachment heads for customised use.

Kogan Ultra Light Portable Massage Gun
