How Long Can I Use A Massage Gun For?

Oct. 12, 2022

Massage guns are powerful and are able to penetrate deep into muscle tissue with precision, increasing blood flow and speeding up recovery. They should only be used for a maximum of two minutes on any given muscle group. They can be used 2-3 times daily.



When Should I Use a Massage Gun and For How Long?

Percussion massage can be used several times throughout the day. Whatever reason you’re using your massage gun, it should only be used in short sessions, for no more than a couple of minutes. It’s recommended to use a massage gun 2 or 3 times a day at most.



Percussion massagers can activate muscle groups and improve muscle mobility and -flexibility when used before a workout. Without the restriction of tight muscles, you could see big improvements in your performance.

By activating muscles in your warm-up with a massage gun, you will also help to prevent injury.

For pre-workout, work the massager over targeted muscles for 30-40 seconds to activate them.


During Activity

During activity, the percussion gun can help reactivate muscles and prevent spasms or fatigue. While athletes are known to do this, the research on using percussion massage during activity is lacking.

If you use the gun while working out, then run it over specific areas for 10-15 seconds. 



Massage guns will give your post-workout the power-up you’ve been craving. Increasing muscle flow and relieving lactic acid build-up will mean less pain and a quicker recovery.

You can use the massager across each muscle group for up to two minutes for optimum recovery post-workout.


For Relaxation

Massage guns are also a great way to unwind, so you can use yours when you need to relax or  relieve muscle tension.

For relaxation, you can use the massage gun for up to two minutes on each muscle group.
