Shoppers say this massage gun is 'great for relieving pain' and it's down to $88

Summer is the time to be active, but sometimes those activities backfire. Swimming against the current sounded like an interesting challenge at the time! Why not attempt a hyperextending reach to return that pickeball? Alas, as we know, today's athletic bravado all too often means tomorrow's aches and pains. You know it's gonna happen again this summer — why not be prepared? The Renpho Thermacool Massage Gun can soothe your overheated skin and loosen those overworked muscles in no time at all, and it's over $50 off at Amazon right now.

In addition to an array of standard attachments, this includes a cooling and heating head that delivers relief in temps ranging from 47 to 113 degrees Fahrenheit.

Why is this a good deal? 💰

Right now, this handy massage gun is marked down by more than 35% and is the lowest price we've seen anywhere on the web. You'll also get free shipping if you have an Amazon Prime account, making this a great value. This isn't likely to see another price drop until Prime Day.

Why do I need this? 🤔

Summer is all about being stress-free, so if you find yourself stiffening up and in dire need of a massage, this little gun can do the trick. It has one heating and cooling head, along with four regular heads that each target muscles at different depths. You can choose between five different speeds (reaching up to 3,200 RPM) for just the kind of massage you need.

If you get dehydrated and your legs start to cramp up, a medium-speed massage on your calves can be a lifesaver. The massage gun maxes out at 40 decibels, so you won't cause a racket when you're trying to get some relief. It weighs just 1.5 pounds, so it won't be too much to lift even when you're at your most knackered.

What reviewers say 💬

Over 3,100 people have used this gadget to un-knot their muscles.

Pros 👍

Fans love that even after multiple uses, the battery is still ready to go. "We use it regularly (often several times a day) and are always pleasantly surprised that the battery still has lots of 'juice' left."

Trust us; your vertebrae will thank you. "I suffer from debilitating low back pain and while I thought my old back massager was decent, THIS ONE BLEW THE OLD ONE OUT OF THE WATER," said a happy upgrader. "The power this massager has is definitely intense but so, so great for relieving my pain."

Feel free to put that heating pad and ice pack away, too. "The hot and cold thermal attachment sold me on it. What I found out by a happy accident is that ... While the massage feature doesn't turn on while charging, you can turn on the thermal and use it like a compress and not use up battery power. The battery won't deplete and will continue to charge."

Cons 👎

Some users reported that although the heating and cooling feature works well, a bulbous head might have been a better design choice. "I just wasn't a fan of the flat head for working on sore muscles."

Others warn that it might deliver too much of a good thing. "My husband loves it; I, on the other hand, didn't at first. It left bruising."

Multiple pressure settings mean you can choose exactly how light or strong you want your pulsing/probing/kneading/vibrating to be. Surface-level or deep-tissue, it's your call.
