Title: That wondrous, healing PURRRRRR ... AMAZING!
Content: I recently discovered the wonders of the massage gun. After years of theracane, foam roller, lacross ball - you name it - I found a power toy, that actually works. Just get it. If you are used to doing body work, and are comfortable with self-massage (rubbing out "tight spots" in muscles and joints), it will be immediately intuitive to use. Think of it as a "power thumb." It does what I can do with my hands, but better in most every way. (Saves your hands, and POUNDS out the sore spots.) But the thing that I can't stop thinking about ... it sounds like a cat, purring. I use the lowest setting, 30 Hz, it's basically the same sound a cat makes. I used to think that cats purred, when happy. Now, I wonder if that is backwards ... those low vibrations are just healing and amazing, and targeted at the right place, can work out spots that have been stuck in my body for years, or for some, even decades. The battery life is pretty amazing (maybe an hour, or more?), certainly more than enough for a serious session. The aluminum housing just feels good, and solid. I don't think I'm going to really say much that the other 1500 five star reviews have not said, but I want to add something to the chorus. If you are on the fence, but know about body work and have that already as part of your self-care routine, this thing is a natural fit. Just get the dern thing, it kinda changed my life.
