The best speed to help push out lactic acid from your muscles with FBF massage gun for full body massage is 13 to 18, or nearly 38 strokes/second. Lactic acid is often the result of normal metabolism. When there is insufficient oxygen in your blood, such as after a strenuous workout, your body breaks down glucose without oxygen, resulting in lactic acid. It builds up at a faster rate in the tissues than the body can consume, and enters the blood stream, causing cramping pain. FBF pulse massage gun will help eliminate lactic acid for your bloodstream quickly and easily, providing you relief quicker.
Muscle percussion FBF massager gun that delivers higher amplitude is able to hit deeper into your muscles. Even though higher speed directly relates to more intense massage, a percussion massage gun can feel more intense even at a lower speed.

A soft, double-layered airlock head with air suppression capability allows for a gentle but firm massage that will not only relax your muscles but also help in achieving a better, deeper sleep.
Attachments with big round head are used on large muscle groups such as glutes and quads, small round head is good for overall use on large and small muscle groups, flat head is perfect for use on shoulder blades while spinal heads are apt for use on the lower back. Core, wedge and thumb attachments are great for working on similar muscle groups due to their shape and size while a fork attachment is better suited to work around sensitive areas including tendons and bones.
