4. The principle of the fascia gun?
Using the force transmission effect, the force and vibration are transmitted to the deep fascia muscles through the principle of vibration.
2000-3000 vibrations are generated per minute, and the gun head impacts the target part of the body to help the muscles and soft tissues relax and restore, and promote blood circulation.
Not only to solve the problem of vibration, but also to consider the noise, stability, depth of force and other issues of the motor.
5. What are the direct benefits of using a fascia gun?
Fascia relaxation can effectively comb the muscle fascia, get stretched, reduce muscle friction, and greatly help joint mobility and muscle ductility.

7, the use of fascia gun taboo
Don't hit the joints
Joints are important and sensitive parts. The fascia gun is mainly used to relax the muscles and soft tissues. If it is used to hit the joints, it is useless, and this "hard-to-hard" method can easily cause joint damage.
Not suitable for certain parts
Key parts of the body such as the head, parts with thin muscle thickness such as the armpits and lower abdomen, and parts of the vital organs and aorta such as the waist and neck. These positions should not be impacted with a fascia gun.
It’s not that the longer the time, the greater the intensity, the better
It is advisable to use the same part multiple times for a total time of 3-5 minutes, and to walk in different positions according to the muscle texture. Generally, there is no need to apply too much external force to press, and it is good to keep the soreness at 6-8 points.
Use good quality fascia gun
Many imitation, remanufacturing and copycat fascia guns on the market are indiscriminately manufactured. They are easily damaged due to their vibration frequency and lack of protection mechanisms. In severe cases, they may even cause cardiac arrest and shock. There are also use hazards such as explosions caused by the use of low-quality motors and batteries.
Follow the guidance of professionals
For those who have physical illness or have experienced injuries, they should consult a doctor, rehabilitator or coach.
8. Body parts that should not be impacted by a fascia gun
The head contains the five sense organs and the brain, as well as various acupuncture points. These are delicate and sensitive positions, which are vital parts for humans. What's more, in addition to protecting the bones of the head, there are no too thick muscles and fascia to relax. Therefore, it is forbidden to hit the head with a fascial gun.
Side of neck
These locations are densely covered with blood vessels and nerves, and the carotid sinus is in this location, which is relatively superficial and very sensitive to external mechanical compression. Slight carelessness can cause cardiovascular reflexes, leading to instantaneous insufficiency or interruption of blood supply to the brain. Individuals may even experience extreme conditions such as fainting and cardiac arrest. It is recommended to use stretching to relax this position.
The shoulders are easy to sore, and the fascia gun has a good hitting effect. It is possible to hit from the position of the trapezius muscle at the back, but cannot hit the position inside the clavicle of the front. The muscles in this position are thin, and it is the channel through which the cervical spine emits the brachial plexus, as well as a large artery.
Underarms and inner forearm
This is an important position of the brachial plexus, there are many nerve tissues, but also relatively weak and sensitive.
Where the bone bulges
The spine, ankles, elbow joints, tail vertebrae, and other protruding parts of these bones or joints and their surroundings are not recommended to be hit with a fascia gun, which may cause pain and injury.
Knee and surrounding
The knee is the most prone place for sports injuries, but it is not recommended to use a fascia gun to hit the knee and its surroundings. There is a common peroneal nerve around the head of the fibula on the lateral side of the knee joint. The position of the posterior fossa of the knee, the popliteal artery, tibial nerve, and common peroneal nerve pass from this position.
9. The correct use of the fascia gun
Follow the texture and direction of the muscles
It is recommended to find some muscle texture maps on the Internet to look at, and then just press the general direction. For example, the chest muscles are horizontal, and the leg muscles are vertical.
Note that there is no need to vigorously make the fascia gun to withstand the muscles, generate resonance, and enhance the penetration and massage effect.
Don't strike at the same position for too long, move slowly, with a certain amount of thrust.
Choose a massage head
Choose the right massage head for different positions.
