One of the best ways to release tension in your body is to use a massage gun. Compared to other types of massagers, a massage gun is more intense and is able to deeply work out knots and pain points to get your body feeling better. Homech reached out to have their massage gun reviewed and as someone who used to be a personal trainer, I was happy to give it a spin. Overall, it’s an impressive massage gun and a great option for anyone looking for pain relief. We’ll dive into it so you can decide if it’s a good fit for you.
Opening the Homech massage gun
As soon as you open the Homech box, you see that there is a great, quality carrying case to take it on the go. You need to charge it up before you use it so it’s fully ready to go for your first massage. The instructions explain the charging status clearly, which basically state that you need all the green icons to be solid and lit before the battery is full. Inside the carrying case, you can see that there are six massage heads in total to pick from. They’re incredibly easy to put in and take out. Plus, even with intense massaging they don’t fall out, which was something I found impressive because the high speed is no joke.
Using the massage gun
Once it’s charged, it’s really easy to set up and use. You simply plug in the type of massager you want out of the available options, hit the “on” switch on the bottom, and then you hit the main power button. You get to choose the power from 1 to 20, depending on the massaging strength you want. The motor doesn’t get too loud, even at the stronger massage levels. I quickly noticed how light this massage gun was compared to some others I’ve seen through the years. It’s only 1.5 lbs, which makes it easy to hold if you use it for some time.
The highest level puts 33 lbs of pressure 12 mm deep, which will help you work out those deeper knots. I found I couldn’t handle the 20 too often and felt like 8 or 9 were strong enough to work out most of my sore spots.
Overall, the Homech massage gun is a solid option. The high massage levels are powerful enough to work out any knots, but the light options are great if you’re dealing with a particularly soft spot. The battery life is really impressive and can last for 5 hours at the lowest speed or 10 hours on standby. It runs for about 15 minutes before automatically shutting off to protect the motor from overheating.
This massage gun is pretty quiet, too, with the lowest sound starting at 35db and barely noticeable. Level 1 is 800 RPM and level 20 is 3200 RPM. Keep in mind, you’ll want to use this on your muscles and not on your bones or some ligaments.
