Benefits of muscle therapy with Theragun®

  • Combines massage techniques with Theragun® percussive therapy

  • Reaches 60% deeper into muscle tissue than massage alone

  • Works to release muscle tension in just two minutes

Our recommendation

“Combining a Theragun® treatment with a massage is an effective way to work out knots that have proven difficult to get rid of,” says Nadege, our lead therapist.

“Since this treatment’s also good at loosening tension and speeding up recovery, it’s a great addition to any training plan.”

During your treatment

Your pro will first ask some quick questions about problem areas and past injuries to check using a Theragun® is the safest way to go.

With a powerful 16mm amplitude, the Theragun® percussive therapy device reaches deeper than massage alone, delivering up to 40 pulses a second. This speed and frequency bring a whole new dimension to a massage, oxygenating the muscles and flushing out toxins for a truly reinvigorating experience.

Yes, in the right hands massage guns, although powerful, are perfectly safe. Urban therapists are trained in how to use them with no risk of making muscular injuries worse or causing intramuscular bleeding and excess scar tissue buildup. The massage guns they use are official Theraguns, which are rigorously tested for their safety.

No, massage guns are tools for relieving tension and reducing pain in muscle tissue and speeding up recovery. You’re unlikely to see any change to your weight from a massage gun treatment.

Theragun® massages can be an effective way to treat a number of conditions, like muscle fatigue, tension, sciatica, lower back pain (if cause by tension), and plantar fasciitis. But for more significant muscular injuries, like a pulled hamstring, you’re best off booking specialist soft tissue therapy (called injury/pain management on Urban)

We don't recommend Theragun® massage during pregnancy. Try our specialist pregnancy massage instead. 

To keep you and your therapist safe, it’s important to hold off on getting a massage if you’re unwell with a fever or flu-like symptoms, or if you have a contagious skin disease. Therapists have the right to cancel your treatment if they think it will harm you or them in any way.

If you have a health condition and you’re not sure about booking a massage, consult your GP for advice beforehand.
