In early May 2020, Theragun rebranded as Therabody and launched four new percussive therapy devices—tools that use rapid bursts of pressure that stimulates blood flow to soothe sore muscles—featuring quieter motors than its previous models.
We tested three of the devices for several weeks and spoke to a physical therapist and athletic trainer to see what exactly these things are doing. Spoiler alert: The devices made us feel great, but they come with hefty price tags. If you want to give them a try, we’ve outlined each of the new models below and what’s WIRED and TIRED about each.
(The company also has a TheraOne line of CBD products, but we didn’t try these and can’t speak on the medical benefits of CBD.)
