Welcome to Help and Wellness, a blog where we will share everything you need to know about Theragun Percussive Therapy, general health & wellness, and everything in between. We’ll also share stories that move us and connect us with you, our Theragun Community.
To start, I want to share my story.
A little more than a decade ago, I got into a severe motorcycle accident. I was driving at 55mph and slammed into the side of a car. I didn’t have any life-threatening injuries, but I was definitely injured. The worst part was I had a herniated disc in my neck. The pain was almost unbearable, and nothing I tried gave me any relief from my muscle and nerve pain. I tried everything, including vibration therapy. I was looking for an effective natural solution, and I couldn’t find one that I could use on myself while I wasn’t being treated, and there was nothing I could take with me from my chiropractic office. I didn’t know it at the time, but I was about to accidentally create something that helped me at first, and then many more people from that moment on.
Percussive Therapy works because every Theragun device delivers a unique combination of these three things: amplitude (depth), frequency (speed), and torque (force). Our devices are scientifically-calibrated to treat deep within the muscle to release muscle tension without discomfort. Every device reaches 16mm (60% deeper than the vibration devices on the market) into the muscle, increasing heat and blood flow, which pushes toxins out and helps your body heal faster and feel better. Each Theragun device goes on and then comes off of the body 40 times per second, which distracts the brain away from pain while also delivering deep, effective treatment more comfortable and efficient than manual muscle therapy.
We worked alongside MIT engineers to design our devices and equipped them with the highest quality Japanese motors to measure up to the Theragun standard of power and performance.
We wanted to create a device that was not just effective but also easy to use.
So, we patented the Theragun Triangle multi-grip design. All Theragun devices are intentionally engineered and calibrated to prevent strain on the body during use. Each device can be gripped in four distinct ways and is perfectly balanced so that professionals and everyday people alike can use them comfortably and with little stress on the body.
Theragun Percussive Therapy has helped me realize the power of natural solutions that are backed by science. I found that using science and technology to guide natural processes makes a real difference in the lives of people who are looking for ways to feel better, naturally. As a company, we’re continuously innovating, conducting research around the world. As we continue to learn about and create new natural wellness solutions, we intend to share what we know with you.
