FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
Are electric massagers effective?
Absolutely! Home massage is an important part of an ongoing rehabilitative or massage therapy plan. Massage therapy is generally defined as a specialized technique to rejuvenate the body by pressing on specific points to relax tissues and muscles, stimulate blood circulation and release positive energy within. Implementing a regular massage regime has been known to improve both physical and mental health.
An electric massager allows you to give yourself a massage at any time and any place. Massage Warehouse offers a variety of handheld electric massagers, professional neck and back massagers and power massage machines capable of relieving pain, improving flexibility and blood circulation, boosting the flow of oxygen and releasing stress. Electric massagers are also designed to relieve persistent problems such as plantar fasciitis, arthritis, migraine and spondylosis.
Can electric massagers reduce cellulite?
No scientific study has proven that electric massage machines can eliminate cellulite; but they have, however, been known to temporarily improve the skin’s appearance and make cellulite less noticeable.
Massage therapy has been proven to offer many health benefits in general and should be a valued part of your wellness regimen. When time is of the essence and spending an hour or more on a massage table isn’t an option, a professional self-massage tool or handheld electric massager can be a great substitute between sessions.
How do power massagers work?
Power massagers, or massage guns, use percussive or vibration therapy to target specific problem areas. These handheld massagers provide rapid bursts of pressure into the body’s muscle tissue imitating the striking motion of a massage therapist’s hands during a session. For those who find foam rollers and other generalized myofascial massage tools uncomfortable or too manual of a process, electric massage guns, like the Theragun Elite offer a more automatic solution.
Percussive therapy devices and other handheld professional massagers work by reducing inflammation and muscle tension by increasing blood flow to a specific muscle group. These electric massagers like the Thumper Sport Percussive Massager are perfect for breaking up knots after a tough workout or as a warm up prior to activity.
