Ekrin B37 Massage Gun – Easy to Use
Ekrin B37 Massage Gun – Easy to Use
I am well into middle age and all that comes with it: sore muscles and stiffness.
Therefore, I jumped at the opportunity to try out the Ekrin B37 massage gun by Ekrin Athletics. Despite the fact that I have been a skier and a cyclist for years, this was the first time I’d ever tried a percussion massager.
Beyond a muscle knot relief ball and a foam roller, I didn’t consider myself a hardcore enough athlete to invest in a massage gun.
But, I’d recently been experiencing soreness on my shoulders and also had a persistent knot on my neck and had neither the time or resources to spend on getting deep tissue massage regularly.
Did I want to try the Best Value Massage Gun Overall of 2022? Heck yes!
My interest was piqued even further when my partner recently experienced pinched nerves from cycling and his physical therapist used a massage gun to manage the pain. He extolled the recovery benefits of the percussion massager, so I was even more eager to try it.
The Ekrin B37 arrived in a padded hard travel case with a handbook and four attachments: flat (multipurpose), fork (neck and spine), round (large and medium muscle groups), and bullet (deep massage).
I liked that it came with a helpful and easy-to-understand user’s manual that included graphics of muscle groups and not only suggested duration and sets but a correct direction to move the massage gun. It answered questions that I, as a novice user, was too embarrassed to ask!
I should note that the Ekrin B37’s ergonomic design and slim handle made it very easy to use when I was targeting hard-to-reach areas. The grip’s superior design helped me to maintain effective control over the massage gun with one hand. For someone with small hands, the grip design makes a huge difference.
The first attachment that I used (and continue to use the most) was the forkhead on my neck. It definitely loosened the stiffness. I used the lowest speed to release the tension.
The second attachment that I liked was the flat head. Designed for overall use, it felt good on my tired calves and quads after a tough bike ride with lots of climbs.
I felt that the third (round head) and fourth (bullet head) attachments were more effective when my partner used the Ekrin B37 on me to target large sections of my body.
The round head felt like it provided more of a general massage and was not as comfortable as the flat head. The bullet head I liked the least because it felt somewhat painful. However, I wasn’t experiencing the problems that it was designed to alleviate, so I cannot attest to the effectiveness of that attachment.
The Ekrin B37 massage gun is loaded with thoughtful features and comes with a lifetime warranty that offers considerable peace of mind.
Five variable speeds are controlled by one button.
USB Type-C Charger provides charging options.
Ultra Slim design and compact size for portability.
Four interchangeable attachments are designed to target specific muscle groups.
Speed level indicator.
Battery level indicator.
8-hour battery life.
The Ekrin B37 helps me to alleviate any soreness or stiffness anytime, anywhere.
Additionally, the different combinations of speed and attachments make it a versatile and, consequently, valuable muscle recovery tool. Final word? The Ekrin B37 massage gun is an investment, but its overall design quality, versatility, and lifetime guarantee make it well worth the price. You don’t have to be a super athlete to appreciate it.
