Some people wake with an "Ouch!" Others hurt only after a good workout. And then there are those whose muscles stay in spasm (hello, my tribe).
One day, when I was hanging at the park with friends, I couldn't stop pressing on a nagging knot in my right shoulder. A friend dashed to his car, returned with what seemed to be a drill (and a crazed smile), and stated that I absolutely had to try it. Weird — but I said yes. This was my first time testing a massage gun.
The strange device melted every bit of tension away from my shoulder ... my hips ... my back. He had to pry it from my hands. I understood why he kept it in his trunk.
When I got home, I went online to buy one, but that brand cost hundreds and hundreds and hundreds of dollars. Forget that. I went back to massaging my shoulder the old-fashioned way for another year.
Now I may finally be able to give that hand a break because — big news — the Vybe Pro Muscle Massage Gun is on sale at Amazon today for $130 with on-page coupon (down from $230). (Also on sale today: The Vybe Premium Muscle Massage Gun; $150 with $20-off coupon.)
If you have Amazon Prime, you’ll get free shipping, of course. Not yet a member? No worries; you can sign up for your free 30-day trial here. (And by the way, those without Prime still get free shipping on orders of $25 or more.)
The powerful handheld massager provides tension relief, post-workout recovery or just simple relaxation, depending on what you ask it to do. With three speeds and six attachments, you can customize the exact treatment your body needs — whether you're targeting joint pain, soft tissue, cramps, trigger points or a stubborn knot. A contoured handle also makes it easy to get a grip.
"I'm amazed at the effectiveness of this massage gun," said one five-star reviewer. "I've never owned one before, so I can't compare it to others... but I do have a big basket full of massage tools (rollers, balls, sticks, you name it) that really take too much physical effort. It's much easier to just point the massage gun at a tight spot than get into some awkward, tiring position to roll them out. After just two nights of use, I'm already seeing results.
There's no need to shell out big bucks for a massage gun. Users are finding this Vybe masager to be superior to big-name players (and even older Vybe models) in quality and price. "Huge upgrade over the original Vybe," reported one happy customer. "I liked the original, it was very effective in pain relief but it was LOUD. Loud enough that I felt uncomfortable using it in a hotel room as it would disturb the guests next door. The Vybe Pro fixes that plus more!"
The massager reaches pretty much everywhere, so you don't have to. And you can finally get rid of all those gadgets that are collecting dust.
Lightweight and portable, this massage tool even comes with a travel case for therapy on the go. And the charge lasts for three whole hours.
Perhaps it's my turn to be the heroic friend who arrives on the scene with a massage gun, rescuing everyone from pain.
