Unlike other electric muscle stimulators, you use your smartphone as the controller instead of having a separate unit.
Pairing with the PowerDot app it tracks and records your therapies to help you find the right option every time.
9. Aku Mat
Gift someone the healing powers of acupressure treatment
Acupressure is a massage technique that the recipient might never have considered.
Let them read about the wealth of health benefits — we’re sure they’ll be interested!
And when it comes to enjoying acupressure at home, there is no better way than with the Aku Mat.
Unlike competitor mats that typically have points made of plastic, this one has spikes made of iron, zinc, silver, copper and nickel.
Lying down on these points triggers the release of endorphins (our ‘happy hormones’) evoking a sense of deep relaxation.
Worried it looks like a painful way to enjoy a massage?
We tested the Aku Mat for months and found it can be at first.
Though you quickly get used to the sensation and the results are more than worth it.
10. Theragun PRO
A PRO product in every sense of the word!
We tested the PRO and found it lived up to its reputation as a must-have tool for serious athletes and personal trainers.
Powering 16mm into the muscle tissue, it can handle an incredible 60lbs of applied force without failing.
You get four adjustable arm positions, variable speed options and six attachments so you can use it whether you want a tool for neck pain or need to loosen up tight muscles in your legs.
If you want to gift a percussion massage tool, but don’t have the budget for a Theragun, then there are a number of other solid alternatives.
11. Comfier Full Body Massage Mat with Heat
A massage treatment for the whole body
Sometimes you don’t want to focus on a specific area for a massage, you want the full body treatment!
By gifting this mat from Comfier, you’re giving them exactly that.
All they need to do is lie back on the mat and vibration therapy will get to work loosening tension and promoting relaxation.
They can use the simple controller to define the regions they want to treat, set the intensity and add heat so it also becomes a soothing heat pad.
It’s worth mentioning that this mat uses vibration therapy, so won’t give you the intensity of some of the other devices above that use airbags or rollers.
However if you’re looking to gift someone a gentle full body massage, you need to add this to your cart.
