Massage guns work by sending a rapid series of pressure movements to a small area of a targeted muscle. The gun works like a mini-jackhammer, hitting its target from 20 to 40 times a second.

Proponents claim that using a massage gun speeds recovery and also reduces pain and lactic acid build up. On the downside, however, is the cost and lack of actual research proving the claims.
