Why is the Booster Pro2Percussion Therapy gun better than others?

Not only is the Booster Pro2 percussion therapy gun at €339 (including delivery) better priced than other market brands (Theragun and Hypervolt), it also offers you a more powerful yet silent and smooth massage, compared to other percussion therapy guns, and that’s not all:

  • Carry case to bring your cordless, lightweight massager anywhere you go
  • Powerfulhigh torque, brushless motor with ultra-quiet Noise Reduction technology – other guns can be loud and stall with little pressure!
  • 9 speed levels ranging from 1800 to 3400 percussions per minute, with level memory – others have 2 or 4 levels, no memory and far fewer percussions per minute!
  • Up to 3.5 hours of use per charge – others need a recharge after just 1.5-2 hours
  • Ergonomic and well balanced design for a smooth massage – other guns’ weight distribution may not offer the same smooth experience
  • 5 attachment heads for varied pressure and focus – others provide 4 or less attachments

All factors considered, we believe our Booster Pro2 massage gun is the best choice you can make.

Why should I use percussion therapy?

Percussion therapy, also known as neuromuscular vibration therapy uses rapid pulses of pressure in a concentrated area to treat the myofascial tissue which enhances the flow of blood to different critical areas, allowing for pain relief and subsequently improving function and range of motion. The percussions of the massage gun also provide a gentle stretch which in turn enhances flexibility, performance, and physical response.

Neuromuscular vibration therapy differs from traditional massage by desensitizing the surrounding area of a sore muscle through percussions. The soothing of the muscle tissue enables the treatment of the specific muscle soreness with less noticeable pain and discomfort, thus providing relief. Furthermore, traditional massaging with human hands may not be able to penetrate those hard to reach areas of the myofascial tissue thus not addressing the core issue.

There are a wide range of benefits to using percussion therapy, such as:

  • Improves your range of motion
  • Reduction of recovery time and accelerates warm-up time
  • Clears the muscles of lactic acid and reduces fatigue
  • Breaks down scar tissue, treat injuries and pains
  • Increases blood circulation and oxygen distribution
  • Releases muscle trigger points, stiffness and soreness

What are the benefits of the Booster percussion therapy gun?

Besides the overall benefits of improved range of motion, reducing fatigue, relieving soreness and stiffness and improving blood and oxygen circulation, consider these beneficial training points:

  • Save time – just 5 minutes with the Booster Pro2 massage guns is equivalent to spending 30 minutes foam rolling or with a professional masseuse.
  • Recover faster – power massaging for muscle injuries can speed up recovery times by up to 30% without the physiotherapy costs.
  • Train more and harder – massaging after a session reduces lactic acidebuildu and repairs micro-tears, meaning less soreness and better training results.
  • Massage anywhere – our 24V battery powered device is cordless, lightweight and comes with a handy carry case so you can use it anytime anywhere.
  • Improve performance

    – regular massaging after training, games or events has been show to significantly increase performance and everyday fitness.
  • Reduce pain, work harder

    – high velocity percussion reduces pain from inflamed muscles allowing you to train harder than with static pressure

How long should a percussion session be?
We recommend between 10-20 minutes per session every other day or after hard training sessions. Always listen to your body or advice from coaching or medical professionals.
How do I operate the Booster Pro2 massage gun?
  • Power ON the device by moving the power switch on the (underside) bottom of the device to the ON position. Power OFF the device by moving the power switch to the OFF position.
  • With the power switched ON, press the “+” button oncefor percussion level 1, twice to turn device to percussion level 2 and three times for percussion level three, and so forth.
  • Pressing the “-“ buttonwilllower the percussion level. The blue LED lights will indicate the corresponding power level.
  • Massage desired body part at the desired speed, apply pressure as needed.
  • To attach a head or to switch massage head, please ensure the device is turned OFF and fully insert the massage head by pressing it into the percussion head. To remove the massage head, gently pull out the attachment until it has released from the massage gun.

Note: Do not use the gun continuously for more than 30 minutes, turn it off for 5 minutes before continuing the use of the massage gun.

How do I charge the Booster Pro2 device?
  • For first time use, please ensure the battery is fully charged.
  • To charge, connect the DC end of the charging cable to the bottom of the device and plug AC side cable into wall outlet.
  • Power indicator lights up and starts flashing. Charging finishes when the four indicator lights stop flashing.
How should I use the massage gun?

For the treatment of pain or injuries we recommend the following steps:

  1. Locate the trigger point of soreness
  2. Do not point the massage gun directly to this pain or injured spot. Start 20cm away from this point and move slowly and gently towards the trigger point and pause at the trigger point for 15-20 seconds. Whilst doing this select apply the appropriate level of pressure for the situation
  3. Repeat step 2 until your muscle groups feel better. Swap to a cone-shaped attachment if you think the massage cannot reach the deep tissue.

Note: do not over-treat one general area, always listen to your body or advise from coaching or medical professionals.

Traditional massage versus Percussion Therapy?

Neuromuscular vibration therapy or percussion therapy differs from traditional massage by desensitizing the surrounding area of a sore muscle through percussions. The soothing of the muscle tissue enables the treatment of the specific muscle soreness with less noticeable pain and discomfort, thus providing relief. Furthermore, traditional massaging with human hands may not be able to penetrate those hard to reach areas of the myofascial tissue thus not addressing the core issue. Sometimes treatment with hands can be too painful to bear and thus the area is not treated. With percussion therapy, you don’t experience this pain, enabling the treatment of deep-tissue muscles and improving blood circulation and oxygen distribution. This decreases post-workout muscle pain and cramps, which accelerates the body’s ability to heal and recover. Most importantly, you can use our self-myofascial release Booster gun at anytime, anywhere without the cost of a physiotherapist.
To summarize, there are a wide range of benefits associated with percussion therapy:

  • Improves your range of motion
  • Reduction of recovery time and accelerates warm-up time
  • Clears the muscles of lactic acid and reduces fatigue
  • Breaks down scar tissue, treat injuries and pains
  • Increases blood circulation and oxygen distribution
  • Releases muscle trigger points, stiffness and soreness

How does the Air Relax System Work?

After fitting both legs into thigh-high cuffs, just sit or lay on a flat surface of a bed, floor or couch and let the technology do the work. The leg cuffs have hoses that connect to the air compressor. Once the compressor is turned on, the air chambers in each leg cuff fill up with air in the sequence you choose, gradually compressing each muscle group in the legs and feet and then repeating. You may choose the compression sequence you like the most. Massage therapy will increase circulation and will flush lactic acid from a user’s legs after a tough workout or standing for long periods.

Why should I use Dynamic Compression Therapy

For athletes who take their sport seriously, muscles soreness can be a reoccurring issue. Intense training can cause muscle tissue inflammation and a build-up of lactic acid and other metabolic waste products. This build up can lead to a dip in performance and an increase in fatigue. Your body will naturally work to remove these products however this process takes time.

This is where Air Relax can help athletes reduce their recovery time and enable them to get back to peak performance quicker, by mimicking and enhancing the body’s natural means of recovery, in a convenient, passive way. Unlike stretching or foam rolling, an Air Relax recovery session can be carried out while reading a book, watching TV or taking a nap, all while the system works on all the muscles in your entire limb, or just a specific area you select. In addition you can also set the specific mode of function you require or pressure level you want that day, making your Air Relax recovery session unique to your specific needs.

Intermittent compression technology is not new, and has been thoroughly tested and refined over a number of decades. Many studies have shown the positive effects this type of recovery can have on athlete’s performance. Hence we believe every athlete, coach or physiotherapist should incorporating the Air Relax Recovery system in their daily training or conditioning routine.

What are the benefits of the Air Relax Compression Recovery system ?

Why should you use a Vibrating Foam Roller

There are a wide range of physiological benefits to using vibrating foam roller. Vibration increases circulation making it ideal for warming up the body before physical activity. Additionally it helps to loosen and lengthen muscles to increase flexibility and to reduce muscle soreness and stiffness for a better recovery. It is found that vibration foam rollers are twice as effective compared to regular foam rolling for warm-up and active recovery (up to 40% versus 18% increase in range of motion with a regular foam roller).

The vibrating foam roller is a self-myofascial release tool which combines pressure (through body weight) and high frequency vibration to increase blood circulation and oxygen distribution to help relieve muscle soreness, stiffness and speed up recovery. The vibration amplitude and frequency of the foam roller dramatically increase an athlete’s range of motion, thus improving the ability to perform.
