What is a Massage Gun and Percussive Therapy?
Massage guns hit the mainstream workout and fitness industry at the end of 2019, but their use has become very common very rapidly. When they took off in 2020, we knew we needed to learn more about why everyone was talking about them.
A massage gun is a self-massage tool that offers percussive therapy and is used by everyone from professional athletes, masseuses, to your dad; after a long day at the office.
Percussion Massage vs. Vibration Massage
While there are many massage guns on the market, only a few use percussion therapy compared to vibration therapy. In TimTams blog post on what makes the best recovery tool they say, “Percussion is a form of massage therapy. It delivers longer amplitude strikes that reach deeper into the layers of your muscle.”
Now if your not a physics expert like me, you might be scratching your head on why amplitude matters and what even is it.
Amplitude is the measurement of change of a vibration or oscillation, measured from the position of equilibrium.
While most massage guns only vibrate and have a very short amplitude, the power massager pro is like a jigsaw, where there is a shaft that moves. This causes a much longer amplitude allowing a more effective massage, that penetrates deeper into the muscle.

You also just might be looking for an alternative to your masseuse during the coronavirus lockdown.
Are Massage Guns Worth It?
A massage gun can deliver the same effect as a physical therapist in 5 minutes. If you compare the cost of your time and the cost of a massage therapist to your massage gun you will quickly realize why these bad boys have been gaining so much traction.
So if you want to know if a massage gun is worth it, think about it like this..
According to There.com, “The average cost for a massage is $75 an hour. Hiring a massage therapist for a one-hour massage, you will likely spend between $50 and $90.”
In the article Therapeutic Massage for Pain Relief published by Harvard.edu, they say,
“A study published in Annals of Family Medicine in 2014 found that 60-minute therapeutic massage sessions two or three times a week for four weeks relieved chronic neck pain better than no massage or fewer or shorter massage sessions.”
Let’s use this as an estimate and form a basic assumption for this article.
Let’s say you’re trying to relive your neck pain and plan to follow Harvard’s stats.
- 2 Sessions x 4 Weeks x $75 Average Costs of a Massage (60 Min) = $600 on the low end
- 3 Sessions x 4 Weeks x $75 Average Costs of a Massage (60 Min) = $900 on the high end
If your pain returns you also have to pay the same cost to once again relive the same pain you experienced before.
Now, The Power Massager Pro by TimTam.Tech has a price point of $399.99 (or you can pay it off in 4 payments) which is less than the lowest price you could relieve your pain by going to a masseuse; according to our assumptions.
Not only will the Power Massager Pro save you money if you frequently visit a masseuse, but it will also save you time making you more efficient! According to TimTam, “Just 5 Minutes with a Power Massage Pro is equivalent to spending 30 minutes with a foam roller or professional masseuse” and after testing the Power Massager, we can confirm that it is better and quicker than a traditional massage.
