This isn’t a complaint but we thought you must know because many times people get tempted by the fact that they can use it at 30 different speed levels. As you can see in the video review above, this gun doesn’t make excessive noise like Theregun or Hypervolt, so you don’t have to shut it off before speaking to someone. It is a hard-shell zippered case with various pockets to hold the contents in their place while traveling. There is another small hard case inside that holds various attachment heads so you don’t lose them. The case has paddings to protect the gun and makes storage and carrying much easier. It has a special heated attachment – a ceramic head for a heated massage option.
One thing it does definitely do that a trigger point tool would not do, I would say, is it really increases your blood flow. If you use this on a spot on your arm for a few minutes, even if any of the settings, you’re going to feel an effect. And especially when you’re done, you’re going to feel just a warmth throughout your arm which I believe shows that’s the blood flow going to that area so I think it’s very very effective for that. Now, one thing I really like about this machine is obviously the value you get for your money basically. Now I will say, the Theragun feels premium in a lot of ways, there’s a lot more movement back and forth horizontally for the Theragun which I don’t know how valuable that actually is. I will say when comparing them that this Chiro Gun does feel almost as powerful as the Thegun if not just as powerful.

While most other massage guns will provide you with percussion massaging which is literally like punching your muscle, Chirogun will offer you more like a vibrating massage. Most experts recommend massaging a specific area for no more than two minutes at a time, and it’s important to massage soft muscle tissue exclusively.

Something else that is ‘less’ is the price, which we are sure most will see as a plus. The TheraFace Pro comes with six detachable heads, including one for facial cleansing and one for micro current , an LED light and three heads for percussive massages .

Both medical professionals and peer-reviewed studies suggest that anyone who takes part in physical activity can benefit from using a massage gun. The percussive motion delivered by a quality massager helps warm up muscles before a workout and relieves soreness or tension after a workout ends. As noted several times on our list, some massagers have heads that can be switched out based on the muscle group and the area of the body you’re targeting. If you’re only going to be using this tool on your back or thighs, a larger massage head will do the trick.
While it doesn’t come with a warranty, it has strong points thanks to its 30 speed levels and multiple attachments. Overall, the Chirogun Percussion Massager has a pretty decent battery performance. But, bear in mind that the battery life depends on the speed level you use. The higher the speed, and the more you press it to the body, the faster it will drain. Unfortunately, your massage gun may be broken—or it may just be a dud. If you’re still having trouble resetting your massage gun, it is worth it to see if the manufacturer will honor your warranty.
Nevertheless, it is one of the best products in its niche and definitely worth buying. Now granted neither of these are so loud that you’re going to not want to use them, I’ve used a jigsaw, a modified jigsaw basically. There’s an article that we have on the site where it shows you exactly the parts to select and I will add the link to that article in the description. But anyways, I’ve used the jigsaw with the massage ball attachment and let me tell you that thing is very very loud. You could not use that at 11 pm in an apartment for instance, someone would call the police on you or something.
