We’re your reliable guide dedicated to percussion massagers, also known as massage guns, and a variety of wellness tech and recovery products.
It all started back in 2020, a time when the 2nd gen Theragun and Kraftgun Force were new on the market.
One day at the gym, I spotted a Hypervolt, and it piqued my interest. A friendly trainer couldn’t stop raving about how it enhanced his performance and sped up his recovery.
Initially skeptical, I decided to show it to my close friend, Luke. We then explored the technology behind it and checked what the existing studies had to say.
With every discovery, we became more and more involved.
So, to share these findings, we started MassageGunAdvice.com. Of course, it didn’t evolve overnight into what you see now. Initially, it was a simple blog, all about exploring new things and sharing what we learned, mostly revolving around our first purchase, the Ekrin B37.
Fun Fact The Ekrin B37 we bought back in 2020 is still with us (as its review). Luke often mentions we might have dropped the idea if the B37 hadn’t impressed us so much. Yes, it’s still a benchmark massager for us, and not many devices can match its versatility even now.
The positive feedback from early readers got us thinking — our hobby could really help others navigate this new technology landscape.
Fast forward to today, what began as a casual experiment has now become almost our full-time gig.. But it’s just us here, no big corporation. With over 70 devices on our shelves, we’re continually testing, comparing, and writing, eager to share our findings.
And it’s still big fun for us, just like it was at the very beginning.
Piece by piece, review by review, our goal is to dive into the world of massage gun tech. We aim to provide honest and actionable advice on what fits your needs and what’s worth your buck.
Some folks have dubbed us the Wikipedia of Massage Guns, and that humbles us. It’s exactly what we’re aiming for – a trustworthy go-to spot for anyone seeking genuine, in-depth reviews of massage guns across all brands and models.
The awesome feedback we’ve received so far tells us we’re on the right track, but we don’t rest on our laurels — we’re just getting started.
Our Review Process
As amateur athletes and firsthand users of sports recovery equipment, we’ve personally tried out most of the devices we review. But we don’t just rely on our initial impressions. We’ve developed our own testing procedure to ensure we deliver the most accurate information possible.
So, each product we review is ordered anonymously and we put it through our testing process. We also touch base with experts (more on this later) and dive into extensive research to offer data-driven recommendations.
Plus, we snap a bunch of photos and videos while testing, which you’ll find included in our articles.
You can learn more about our review process here.
We Are Independent and Reader-Supported
We’re proud that NONE of the reviews available on massagegunadvice.com have ever been sponsored. The entire content on this blog is written independently, and we receive no compensation for reviews published.
We are reader-supported, which means we may earn affiliate commissions from sales referred to massage gun brands. This helps us cover the expenses of running this website (learn more in our Privacy & Affiliate Policy).
