This celeb-loved exercise accessory is like an at-home massage

What do Rihanna, Marcus Rashford, Kate Hudson and Cindy Crawford all have in common? They’re all fans of the Theragun – and you should be, too.

Well established as the market leader in deep muscle massage guns, the Theragun (by Therabody) is the must-have at-home accessory for anyone who regularly exercises or works out, whether that’s running, cycling, swimming or HIIT workouts in the living room.

But it’s not just for athletes and gym bunnies. Similar to using a foam roller – but way more effective – the Theragun uses percussive therapy to get deep into the muscle tissue, relieving you of the dreaded DOMS (delayed onset muscle soreness) as well as being great for injury prevention and treating common ailments such as chronic neck and back pain. With many people working from home for nearly a year now in makeshift office set ups with unsupportive chair situations, we don’t need to tell you that neck and lower back pain is on the rise.

It comes with multiple attachment heads to target different areas of the body, and there are four devices to choose from depending on your need (and budget): Prime, Elite, PRO and a portable mini size for travelling.

While not cheap (the mini is the cheapest at £175, going all the way up to £549 for the PRO), as a one-off purchase it’s definitely cheaper than multiple sessions with a professional massage therapist over the years.

If that’s not enough to convince you, may we remind you of the roster of A-list names who love the Theragun? So much so, in fact, that they are flocking to invest in it, including Rihanna, Jay-Z, Justin Timberlake, Marcus Rashford, Kevin Hart, Daniel Craig, Cindy Crawford, Karlie Kloss, Maria Sharapova and Shawn Mendes, among many others. Other non-investor celebrity fans who love Theragun include the likes of Kate Hudson, Miranda Kerr, Shakira, Kim and Khloe Kardashian, Dwayne Johnson and Mark Wahlberg, to name a few.
