Making time for recovery.

Dr. Jason Wersland has dedicated his life to helping people understand the importance of recovery and now works tirelessly to create and evolve new treatments that bring tangible benefits to people’s daily lives. If you experience any level of stress, strain, or tension, you can benefit from recovery. Recovery isn’t something you should be doing once a week; it’s something that can help you in your everyday routine, regardless of whether or not you work out.

As humans, we are continually changing. Your body won’t feel the same every day, so neither should your recovery routine. Most of us are living busy, stressful lives, making it hard to focus on much beyond what you have to do–work, run errands, or exercise. But what if we all shifted our perception from what we have to do to what we should do like spending quality time with loved ones, setting fulfilling goals, or recovering from day-to-day physical and emotional stress.

It’s Theragun’s mission to help people around the world live out their best lives and feel better naturally. We’re continually working to educate anyone we can about Theragun Percussive Therapy and the ways it can add to your life.  

What is percussive therapy?

Theragun Percussive Therapy increases blood flow and decreases the tension held deep within muscles. It is unique in that it employs a scientifically-calibrated combination of speed and depth to maximize the therapeutic effects each time the device makes contact with your body. The continuous stimulation distracts the brain away from pain while also delivering deep, effective treatment that is more comfortable than manual therapy. This helps alleviate the tension that builds up after performing simple tasks like lifting a heavy item or sitting behind a desk for an extended period of time. 

These are some of the benefits of Theragun Percussive Therapy:

  • Decreases muscle soreness & stiffness
  • Increases blood flow
  • Decreases lactic acid
  • Improves range of motion
  • Hydrates tissue
  • Improves stretching ability 

Founder of Theragun, Dr. Jason Wersland, frequently says that, “Anyone with muscles and a nervous system who experiences tension can benefit from our product." 

The benefits of Theragun Percussive Therapy and prioritizing recovery go way beyond what you may see on the sidelines of a professional sporting event. It’s for everybody, regardless of occupation or lifestyle. No matter what walk of life you come from, we all experience wear and tear on our bodies. Whether your body is feeling the effects of a morning cycling class, a recent run, or a long day at work, it’s essential you allow it to recover. Once you begin to understand the many benefits of everyday recovery, you can start to truly feel better naturally.
