Top Massage Guns (and attachments) on Amazon
Updated: Jan 6
Massage guns have been an excellent tool for helping people manage their physical recovery process as well as manage mild aches and pains. As a Dr. of Physical Therapy, I utilize massage guns on a daily basis and have made plenty of recommendations for clients based on their needs and preferences. In this blog, I aim to promote some of the better products I've come across online. Below are 5 of my favorite devices all carefully selected based on functionality, effectiveness, efficiency, and cost. For those who already have a massage gun they love, scroll to the bottom to check out 2 heated/ cooling upgrade attachments for an extra recovery factor while using your gun.
Looking for a new gun? Check out these options:
1) SonicLX by LifePro Heated Massage Gun
This massage gun comes with a heated element that I personally love as an option with nearly all clients to bring more blood flow and pain relief. It comes with an extended handle design to assist with getting into the hard-to-reach areas of the mid and low back. The price
is listed as $159.99*. Check it out here: https://amzn.to/3C6V7OK
2) Babonir Heated Massage Gun
This gun also comes with a heated element that is unique to itself but with a standard handheld design that is effective and efficient to work on the major muscle groups of the body. The price is listed as $109.99*. Check it out here: https://amzn.to/3GpxhQL
Hypervolt is one of the premier names in this device industry along with "TheraGun", it brings a quality that thousands of customers can vouch for and this specific model is one of their more affordable options. This model does not come with a heating element but is high in quality and perfect for on-the-go! The price is listed as $129.00*.

4) BOB AND BRAD Q2 Mini Massage Gun, Pocket-Sized
The "most famous physical therapists on the internet" have entered the amazon device game! They bring a different element to the mix as they have the same ability as myself to select products that are not only functional but also effective. This device stood out to me as a more affordable travel option that challenges the other more expensive "on-the-go" devices. The price is listed as $69.99*. Check it out here: https://amzn.to/3PXajnb
Another great option to consider with this device is to bundle it with a cordless kneading massage pillow for the same price as most massage guns listed at $121.98*.

5) Theragun Prime- 4th Generation
This list would not be complete without the pioneers who popularized handheld percussive therapy devices. They are considerably more expensive but still hold their place as one of the best in soft tissue devices with greater depth per impulse and they boast the most efficient machinery on the market. The price is listed at $198.00*.

Already have a massage gun but looking to upgrade a bit?
1) Larkfit heated and cooling massage gun attachment
The Larkfit heated and cooling massage gun attachment is a unique and great way to upgrade your device for a low cost. It is one of the very few products to have a cold function. It has 2 heat settings and 2 cold settings. It is marketed as being suitable for 95% of massage guns. I do not recommend it as an option to replace massage guns that have their own heating element as it will most likely disrupt the fit of the attachment, but I love this device and use it personally. Listed at $19.99*. Check it out here: https://amzn.to/3GmxNyU
2) Lenink Head Attachment Compatible with Theragun Mini/PRO/Elite/Prime, Rechargeable Heated Massager Gun
This is a great option for heat lovers, it has 2 heat settings and is compatible with the popular Theragun devices listed above. I believe this an excellent option for those who are looking for a little more versatility from their Theragun devices and considering their pricey nature, this is an excellent way to upgrade any Theragun affordably. Listed at $16.99*.
