Over the last year or so, we’ve had a lot of massage gun manufacturers offering up their products for review or asking for other cooperation. Back when massage guns began to become popular, I thought it was just a (pandemic) fad that would pass quickly as most fads do. Unexpectedly, massage guns only seem to have become more and more popular, and the price is no longer as high as it was in the beginning. I decided it might be time to look into this once-thought gimmick product when my colleague nagged me about yet another offer.
Before I started trialing the Exogun Dream Pro, I consulted a friend of mine who loves marathons, as I often see him share his experience of using massage guns after exercising. It was the very first time I learned of percussive therapy – a massage technique, which has been scientifically proven to help ease the effects of Delayed-onset muscle soreness (DOMS) after exercise, as well as general aches and pains.
Massage guns are very user-friendly, you need no professional knowledge or understanding of muscle structure. What you need to do is: turn it on, point it at target areas, and let it do its job. (Even my mom has succeeded using it without any instructions and has fallen in love with it.) But do keep in mind that you need to relax your muscles to maximize their potential, just like any other massage.
Start slowly, as massage guns can be quite powerful so it’s important to find what feels right for your body. The key to percussive therapy is to apply the right amount of pressure at the right place. Start with the lowest level and slowly work your way up, until you find the ideal pressure for different parts of your body. Don’t use massage guns too much on the same area or on bones and joints, as there is a risk of bruising and damaging. Experts recommend using it for one to two minutes on each muscle group.
Exogun Dream Pro’s ergonomic design makes it both easy and comfortable to hold up to areas in need of relief, while the matte surface made of anti-slip material and shock absorption design disperses the power of each stroke and makes the grip firm with pinpoint accuracy.
Stall force is a very important metric for massage devices as everyone’s tolerance for pressure varies. Devices with higher stall forces are usually more expensive as they need to have more powerful motors and batteries. Exogun Dream Pro has a stall Force of 60lbs (most popular brands of massage guns have stall forces of 40 to 60lbs), it’s definitely more than enough for home and unprofessional use.
The motors of massage guns can be very loud, making it annoying to use them on neck and shoulder areas, I guess that’s why the newer models prioritize decreasing noise now. Exogun Dream Pro’s 24V Brushless Motor keeps the noise under 70 decibels, to be honest, not very good if you compare it with the top-tier products, but it’s quite decent considering the very competitive price.
Exogun Dream Pro also features 6 speeds that range from 20Hz to 53Hz, providing 1,200 percussions per minute on its lowest setting and 3,200 on its highest, rivaling top picks on the market. 4 replaceable massage heads help target different muscles and tensions, you can enjoy different types of massage. Exogun Dream Pro actually surprised me in battery life with its 2400mAh. I don’t use high strength that often, and on level one or two, it can last a very long time.
Overall, Exogun Dream Pro is a very good choice for starters and people with basic needs, the long-lasting battery is a real surprise as well as customizability. The price at $169 is rather low compared to much of its competition, making it a very good choice. Get an extra 5% off with the special fans code: EXOGUN-L9QPW4
