The science behind percussive massage therapy

The GYMTASTIC Massage Gun: The best equipment for your innovative fitness and regeneration program.

Train & Recover

After training is before training - which is precisely why it is important to allow your body to rest and regenerate. Regardless of whether you push your body to peak performance in the gym, in the water or during outdoor sports: The quality of your muscle recovery determines the success of your training goals.

GYMTASTIC® stands for top performance. We know that your inner drive enables you to train effectively and purposefully. But what does your recovery look like? Are you giving your muscles the relaxation they need to maintain your best form in the long term? With our massage gun, we offer you the best possible relaxation - innovative, powerful and effective.

Percussive therapy: the key to maximum training success

The GYMTASTIC massage gun is your new gadget for percussive muscle regeneration. Powerful pressure impulses on your muscle fibers stimulate the nervous system and blood circulation. The result: maximum deep relaxation of your stressed body parts and effective regeneration of your muscles before your next workout.

How it works

The percussive therapy method is based on three basic components that are individually tailored to your needs:


The impact force of the GYMTASTIC massage gun delivers the pressure impulses that stimulate your muscles. Depending on the area of application, the intensity of the strokes ensures ideal results.


The faster the speed, the more intensive the treatment. That's why our GYMTASTIC massage gun offers 6 intensity levels with 1,200 to 3,200 strokes per minute.

Amplitude The attachments of the GYMTASTIC massage gun can penetrate up to 12 millimetres into your tissue. This effectively loosens fascia and muscle fibers and relaxes them deep down.

Our body

The circulatory system includes all veins, arteries and capillaries and is the main transport route for oxygen, nutrients and hormones. Percussion therapy has a profound effect on the circulatory system, bringing essential connections to the muscles you need most.

Veins, arteries and capillaries are the main transport routes for oxygen, nutrients and hormones. Percussion therapy supplies stressed muscle areas with all the important substances.

The pressure strokes of the massage gun on a specific part of the body signal your brain to pump more blood into the treated area. This increases the energy frequency in your muscle and noticeably improves performance and regeneration power.

During exercise, metabolic by-products are produced that need to be removed by the body. The increased blood flow allows these waste products to flow away more efficiently and your regeneration is accelerated.

Effects on your nervous system

The central nervous system (brain and spinal cord) and the peripheral nervous system (everything else) work together to send and receive pain signals, respond to stimuli and generally carry out all human functions.

To calm your nervous system, the pain of the stressed body parts is overshadowed by the pleasant vibration sensations before the pain signals reach your brain.

To really get your body going, the impact massage stimulates muscles and tissue. This increases your activity and performance.

The percussion massage is used for holistic nerve relaxation to signal the start of the regeneration phase to your body. Your relaxation level increases and your sleep is also positively influenced.

Effects on your musculoskeletal system

The musculoskeletal system includes all the connective tissue in your body: muscles, joints, ligaments, tendons, bones, cartilage and fascia. This is where percussive therapy has the most profound effect.

Fasciae are the connective tissue of muscles, bones and joints. Over time, they can stick together and become sensitive and painful. The impact massage loosens the fasciae and loosens adhesions.

Muscle overload causes knots, tension and pain. The targeted use of impact massage on affected areas of the body loosens knots, relieves pain and restores mobility.

The nerves surrounding the muscles are compressed when they are strained. The result is numbness, tingling and stabbing pain. Percussion therapy loosens the muscles and decompresses the nerve space.

Percussive therapy for back pain

60 to 70% of the world's population suffer from back pain - and the trend is rising. This makes it all the more important to use the percussive therapy method to train a healthy posture and relieve pain at an early stage.

Recommended use for pain:

Every hour for two to five minutes (medium speed)

At the end of the working day for 15 minutes (medium to high speed)

Before going to bed for five minutes (low speed)
