The Best Massage Guns to Try in 2021

TheraGun’s Limited Edition Charitable Models

TheraGun has been the industry standard since the introduction of the massage gun, and they continue to impress reviewers and influencers across the web, The Theragun G3Pro has been regularly touted as the best model of massage gun devices out there for the 2021 season. 

2020 was a trying year for everyone, and most everyone can agree upon that. This year, TheraGun has offered two limited-edition models: The limited-edition RECOVE(RED) device comes with eye-catching candy apple red adornments, and the sales of every device sold by Therabody will contribute funds to the Global Fund’s COVID-19 Response, as well as currently existing HIV/AIDS programs in sub-Saharan Africa. Three models are available for this campaign: The quiet, professional-grade Pro(RED) ($599), the premium Elite(RED) ($399), and the compact and sassy Mini(RED) ($199). 

The newly introduced, limited release Theragun 24K Gold PRO is the top of the line, crème de la crème of Therabody’s massage gun empire. Decked out in dazzling 24K gold plating, this super-elite model boasts professional-grade tension release, as well as a 30-Day Money-Back Guarantee and 2-Year Warranty. ($999)

Achedaway Pro

This powerful little number makes up for a rather generic shell design with professionally graded guts, that bring a powerful amount of percussion to work out knots and problem spots before and after your workout. Having lowered the prices on all of their products, including a uniquely conceived power cupping device that borrows from the alternative medicine treatment called “cupping” (Using heated glass cups to suck the skin of the back, bringing up blood to the skin’s surface in the form of therapeutic bruises. Fans of the treatment swear by its ability to speed up the elimination of toxins from the blood.). This device, called the “cupper”, combines modern tech with ancient methods, creating a space aged version of a suction cup.

Archedaway’s massage gun models all have similar casings, not so much ergonomic as reminiscent of a standard power drill. There is one stand alone model that satisfies people who dislike standard black with a token casing that is powder puff pink. The good part comes with the price tag, with Archedaway slashing prices on all of its massage gun models, across the board. The top of the line Pro model offers 60% more amplitude than the next model down, with a price that was lowered from $539 to $299.

Ekrin B37

Ekrin has inched ahead of the pack in 2021 with the Ekrin B37 model. With an interesting and ergonomic design, it boasts 56 pounds of force with an 8 hour battery life. The B37 is a step-down model from Ekrin’s pro model: the B37S, which retails for $329.99 and offers slightly more force of percussion. Both models are touted as having an operating sound that is “as quiet as rainfall”. The Ekrin B37 retails for $229.99

TimTam Power Massager 

Timtam is another old-timer in the Massage Gun game, and it’s solid Power Massager is still a favorite for 2021. The engineering was, in part, consulted on by athletic trainers, coaches, and professional athletes. This might account for why the unique design looks as if it functions better within a team: the percussive hammer is situated in such a way that self-massage looks possible, but perhaps slightly awkward. If you have a training partner, this model looks ideal for really getting into unpleasant knots in the hard to reach spots of the back, and elsewhere. The Power Massager rates 4 stars out of 5 on the product’s Amazon page, with over 600 reviews. It retails for $249.99.
