If there’s anything this past year taught us, it’s that we’re capable of adjusting to our surroundings. From in-office jobs to working from home; eating out to home-cooked meals; gyms to YouTube workout videos, we can’t deny the big changes occurring in our daily lives. When your busy life warrants some relaxing, why not look into deep tissue massage? You deserve it after all! 

Disclaimer: Deep tissue massage might not be a good option for everyone. If you have a pre-existing medical condition, we recommend asking a health professional before considering a purchase.

Why deep tissue massage?

To put it simply, it’s one of the best ways to relax your muscles and promote body recovery (while releasing happy hormones!). Deep tissue is a type of massage that uses firm strokes and pressure to relieve chronic muscle aches and stiffness in all body areas. Since we can’t get these massages professionally done now, massage guns and percussive massage therapy are great at-home options to consider for relaxation in demand. 

TheraGun PRO Percussive Therapy Device

This device requires spending a hefty penny, but it might be one that’s worth splurging, especially after a workout or anytime you need muscle recovery. This particular device might be loud, but its ergonomic design and industrial-grade Japanese motor make it easy to use while getting immediate relief. It also has multidirectional arm positions, 6 attachments, a travel case, and even an app so you can get the most bang for your buck! If you’re still hesitant, you can try the TheraGun Mini for a fraction of the price.

Pado Purewave Gen II Advanced Percussion And Vibration Massager

For more reach, this cordless massager can provide much needed deep pressure whenever you need it. This upgraded version comes with six swappable attachments to target different points, 12 speeds, and an extended ergonomic handle for hard to reach areas. Great for relieving muscle tension and increasing blood circulation!

Sportneer Percussion Massage Gun

If you feel uncomfortable having another person do the work for you, this is worth looking into! This particular massage gun has five interchangeable massage heads and six intensity levels to suit your preference. Other pluses include long battery life, light-up battery indicator, and an auto-timer that shuts off every ten minutes. Best of all, it’s quiet!

Chirp Wheel

As we continue to work from home, lack of movement and increased sitting are putting pressure on our back and shoulders. If you’re looking for low effort but effective spine and back relief, this wheel hits all the right places! The best part is rolling it – against the wall, on the floor, in a chair…the possibilities are endless!

Pressure Positive The Original Backnobber II

Tackling trigger point pains and muscle aches is easier than it seems. If you’re prone to neck, shoulders, lower and upper back pain, this tool helps release the kinks without the help of an assisting hand. And by the way, don’t let the simple design fool you; this is ranked one of the best deep tissue massage tools for treating muscle pain.

Zyllion Shiatsu Back and Neck Massager Pillow

If you grew up in an Asian household, you probably recognize this device hanging around in your grandparents’ room. This back and neck massager comes with 4 deep-kneading massage nodes and a heating function that soothes tense muscles after a long day. And in case you’re curious, don’t worry about the machine overheating. An auto shut-off feature stops the motor after 20 minutes so that you can enjoy your session with peace of mind.

Nayoya Acupressure Mat and Neck Pillow Set

This may seem intimidating, but countless reviewers swear by it for all sorts of muscle soreness and tension! The magic lies in acupressure, a method that’s thought to activate the body’s self-healing mechanisms to alleviate pain. For this mat, 6200 acupoints stimulate specific pressure points and increase circulation in the body. All you have to do is sit or lie down on it!

SKLZ Targeted Massage Ball

Recovery is just as important as working out. When your muscles require deep tissue compression, this massage ball fits snugly against your back and other large areas of your body. Best of all, this massage ball is water-resistant, portable, and easy to clean for hassle-free pain relief.
