Theragun Devices FAQs

Theragun Percussive Therapy is massage reinvented™. Dr. Jason created percussive therapy to increase blood flow and decrease tension deep within the muscle, using a scientifically-calibrated combination of speed and depth to treat your muscles comfortably by overriding the pain signals sent to the brain.

Theragun Percussive Therapy works because each device offers a unique combination of these three things:

Amplitude (depth)
Our 16 mm amplitude allows our Theragun devices to treat deep within the muscle to release tension.

Frequency (speed)
Our 2400 percussion per minute (40 per second) speed allows our devices to override the pain signals to your brain, making the treatment experience more comfortable than manual muscle therapy.

Torque (no-stall force)
Our devices can withstand up to an additional 60 pounds of applied pressure—without stalling—so you can most effectively treat the areas that need it.

Our significant investments in engineering, technology, product, and software development are the reason we are the only company with four generations of products in the industry.

Our brand new proprietary brushless motor uses QuietForce Technology to deliver unrivaled Theragun power all while being quieter than ever. No brushless motor on the market was capable of quietly providing the Theragun standard of power, so we invented our own. Every 4th generation device treats your muscles 60% deeper than consumer-grade vibration massagers while blending into the background thanks to the dramatic reduction in sound.

The Theragun PRO and Elite both feature a responsive force meter, viewable on the OLED screen located at the top of the device. This force meter monitors the applied pressure on the body resulting from pressure exerted by the user.

Also viewable in the Therabody App during treatment, the force meter allows you to tailor your treatment pressure and intensity depending on the desired result. Each protocol within the app includes force recommendations depending on need and area of the body.

Please note that while the Theragun Prime does not feature an OLED screen for responsive force meter display on the device itself, it is viewable in the Therabody app during treatment.

Only clean your device with a magic eraser or with a lightly damp cloth.
