Product Review: ALKAI M1 Deep Tissue Percussion Massage Gun

Everything to know about this top of the line deep tissue massage gun.

Product Overview

We all know the benefits of stretching before, during, and after a workout. Keeping us flexible and injury free, a solid stretch can just feel good all around. For many of us, a good massage can loosen up tight muscle and that deep tissue grind might make us wince, but we know in the end how good we can feel. But over the past few years, handheld vibrational electric massagers have become very popular, bringing us the best of both worlds. For bodybuilders, competitive athletes, avid gym-goers, or everyday people, these handheld devices have worked wonders and are increasingly in high demand.

ALKAI M1 Deep Tissue Percussion Massage Gun brings all of the great health and wellness benefits of a massage for those looking to enhance their physical performance, support recovery (1), and aid in muscle soreness and stiffness. Whether for a pre-workout warmup to increase blood flow and prep the nervous system for activity, a mid-workout relief of tight areas to keep performance high, or a post-workout recovery to relax the body and support growth, this massage gun will provide you the opportunity to maximize performance and your overall wellness.

Six Massage Heads

This product comes with six interchangeable massage heads, each designed for various treatments on different muscle groups. The component between the massage gun and each head is durable and will not deform as a result of high temperature from continuous use. The ball-shaped and flat heads are great for full body relief, while the cone trigger is perfect for targeting spots of pain. While your back takes quite a beating in workouts or from sitting at a desk all day, the fork and spade-shape heads are great for getting the spine and middle region of your back. ALKAI M1 also includes a unique heating head to support muscle relief.

LCD Touch Screen

The LCD touch screen is easy to use and without the complexity of other massage guns. You can keep an eye on the battery life, which holds 9-20 hours of continuous use off of one charge, as well as usage time and the level of your desired mode. To adjust the settings of mode and speed, touching the ‘+’ or ‘-’ makes for easy adjustments in speed.
