9 Best Massage Guns in India – 2021 [Reviews & FAQs]

After a tiring day at work, nothing can feel more relaxing than a good body massage. It’s not just about the physical relief you get with it but also about the mental and emotional well-being. Massages can help you relieve stress and soothe your body and soul.

While you can surely visit a therapist at the massage centres, that would be a very costly affair. You will have to shell out upwards of 2000 INR, 3000 INR or even more for an hour of massage. Not to forget, you will also have to make appointments and travel a lot to visit them. The Coronavirus, on top of that, makes things even worse for visiting such massage centres.

So the question is. What should be done in such situations?

The answer is simple; you can get an affordable massage gun that can give you a massage at the comfort of your home. There is no need to risk catching an infection by going out the next time you wish to get a massage.

In this article, we will show you how you can choose the right massage guns for use at your home, office or anywhere.

Best Massage Guns in India (2021)

Before we begin: Let us take a look at the things that you should check before you purchase a new massage gun. These are the parameters that help us judge a massager.

  • Ease of use: If you are going to use the device regularly, then get one that has a good design, sturdy body, is easy to hold and lightweight. Get a device that is comfortable to use.
  • Massage heads: Apart from the number of heads, you should also look for the head that you really need. If a device has 6 heads but not the one that you want, then it’s of no use to you.
  • Speed settings: Speed range and the number of speed settings should be considered. The higher, the better.
  • Battery life: Massagers should last for at least 2 hours on a single charge. Look for a device with 2,300 mAh or higher battery capacity.
  • Noise levels: Noise levels above 60 dB get irritating. Make sure you get a device that makes low noise.
  • Warranty: At least 6 months of warranty is what you should expect for the mid-range massagers, but most entry-level massagers don’t even come with a replacement policy, let alone a warranty.

Coming to the massage heads, they are probably the most vital part of a massager. Let’s check out the different types of massage heads that are available with the gun massagers. We have also explained in brief what each of them is used for.

  • Ball head: For use with large muscles like hips.
  • Flat/Dampener head: General purpose head; suitable for all parts of the body.
  • Screw/Fingertip/Gas plug head: For massaging the joints. Can also be used for targeted massage on any body part.
  • U shape/Fork head: Must have for massaging the spinal cord.
  • Wedge/Triangular head: Also for a back massage, but more generalised than the U shape/Fork head.
  • Thumb head: Shaped like a human thumb; for foot massage.

We have thoughtfully chosen 9 of the top-rated massage guns that you can buy in India online. The products on this list are from various price segments.

1. Best Overall: Caresmith Charge

  • Power: 24W
  • Number of Massage Heads: 6
  • Frequency: 3300 RPM
  • Speed Mode: 20
  • Battery: 2500 mAh
  • Warranty: 9 months

Today’s first product comes from Caresmith. It is a brand that manufactures lifestyle and personal care products. Let’s understand how effective the product is to relieve pain.

The Caresmith Charge massager comes with a durable body that looks good as well. It is made up of plastic but still looks well-built. The presence of an LCD display also adds to the premium feel. But the feature that really sets the Caresmith Charge Percussion Massage Gun apart from other products in its category is the presence of 20 different speed settings. Users can set the massaging speed settings between 1,800 and 3,300 RPM to suit their needs.

The product comes with 6 different massage heads, viz. ball, wedge, fingertip, dampener, thumb, and fork. You can find how the massage heads look from the device’s Amazon page. The massager comes with a 2,500 mAh battery that can last you for 3-5 hours, depending on your usage.

The device weighs 700 grams which means that it can be carried around comfortably. It is lightweight and portable. You get a 9-month with this massage gun which, according to us, is good enough as the other products that we’re going to see in this list come with just a 10-day replacement policy that too not from the manufacturer but from Amazon.

All in all, the device is a must-have if you are an athlete or workout regularly. The one and only weird thing about the budget massager guns is that once you turn them on, the speed setting can only be increased. You will have to cycle through to all the 20 speed settings to get back to the initial speed. Priced and around 2,800 INR, this is one of the most popular massage guns that you can buy online.

Pros
  • 20 adjustable speed settings
  • 6 massage heads
  • LCD display indicates remaining charge and intensity
  • Good battery life
  • Lightweight

Cons
  • Speed can only be reduced, only increased after turning on

2. Best Runner Up: WOMIKOL MMG0101

  • Power: N.A.
  • Number of Massage Heads: 4
  • Frequency: 3,600 RPM
  • Speed Mode: 6
  • Battery: 2000 mAh
  • Warranty: 1 Year

With over 3,100 customer ratings on Amazon (and a 4.8-star average rating), Womikol Massage Gun is among the most popular massage guns available online. Although the device has outstanding ratings, when it comes to features, we think that this product leaves a lot to be desired.

About the design, there’s a good thing and a bad thing. The good thing is that the device comes in 4 colours: Black, Silver, Electric blue, and red. The bad thing, the colours are assaulted, and you cannot pick your favourite. In terms of build, we have no complaints at all. The massager is made with excellent quality material.

The device comes with 4 massage heads: Round head, U-shape head, Flat head, Taper head. We loved the design of the U-shaped head. It is great for massaging the neck and spine. The massager successfully manages to relieve muscle soreness and stiffness.

Womikol Massage Gun can work for around 2 hours before requiring to be charged. The product doesn’t quite manage to offer anything better over the Caresmith Charge or even the other cheaper massage guns.

As expected, the product comes with no warranty, and you are on your own if any problem arises after you buy the product. For the price it comes at, we don’t expect it to last for a very long period. Having said that, we firmly believe that it can easily work for at least 2 years or more if you’re lucky.  Don’t forget to check out the rest of the massager guns before deciding which one to buy.

Pros
  • Affordable price
  • Attractive colours
  • Relieves muscle soreness and stiffness
  • Powerful brushless motor
  • Popular on Amazon

Cons
  • No battery level indicator
  • No warranty

3. Best Premium Looking: AGARO Polo

  • Power: 25W
  • Number of Massage Heads: 5
  • Frequency: 3200 RPM
  • Speed Mode: 6
  • Battery: 2000 mAh
  • Warranty: 1 Year

There is hardly any Lifestyle product that Agaro doesn’t manufacture. The next massager on this list is the Agaro Polo. It’s a rather odd-looking massager that performs a little better than it looks.

As we rightly pointed out, design is not where Agaro Polo shines. The device comes with a black-coloured body. It has an odd bump that makes it look like a hammer. We also didn’t like the weight distribution of the product.

5 different attachments are provided with this massager. You get a gas plug head, fork head, round head, flat head, and bullet head. These attachments are enough to massage the entire body. The gas plug is especially good for a whole body massage. It increases the blood circulation in the body.

The product has a 2,000 mAh battery that takes 3 hours to charge and lasts for a little less than two hours. The 2,000 mAh battery is nowhere enough for a device like this, or maybe the motor provided with this massager is a little too powerful for the battery to handle. Nevertheless, at least the motor is good. Perfect for intense massages.

The device weighs 1.15 Kg, but what really makes it inconvenient to use is its uneven weight distribution. You get a 1-year warranty on the Agaro polo. Still, the product in no way manages to justify its price tag of 3,700 INR. There are better options available for a lower price.

thumbs-up-icon
Pros
  • Powerful motor
  • Good choice of attachments
  • 1-year warranty
thumbs-down-icon
Cons
  • Average looks
  • Heavy device with uneven weight distribution
  • Overpriced

4. Best with Safety Protection: Belionera AMQ003

  • Power: N.A.
  • Number of Massage Heads: 4
  • Frequency: 3700 RPM
  • Speed Mode: 6
  • Battery: 2200 mAh
  • Warranty: None

We have a lot of products in the sub-1500 INR price segment. Here is another product in the same category that comes from a brand called Britspear.

In terms of design, a product is very similar to the Belionera HH14002 Massage Gun. The colour options are the same too. We’d say that the design and build quality are satisfactory. When we used the massager, we found out that the massager lasted for 2.5 hours on a full charge.

The massager is fit for use at home, gym, or office. It doesn’t make a lot of noise when running. It comes with 4 massage heads. They are U shaped head, spherical head, cylindrical head and a flat head. The heads are also made with good quality material.

It has 6 speed modes. The device starts at the lowest speed of 1800 RPM and goes up to 3200 RPM as you increase it. To turn it off, you have to increase the speed to maximum, and once it hits speed 6, you have to press the speed button once again to turn it off. Again, remember that this is the issue with most gun massagers and not specific to this one.

The doesn’t stand out much in terms of performance, build quality or looks. Of course, it makes little noise when turned on, which makes it good for use at the workplace. If you are fine with getting a product with no warranty, then go ahead and purchase this one.

Pros
  • Affordable pricing
  • Can be carried to office; portable device
  • Makes little noise when running
  • Auto-turn off feature (turns off after 15 mins)

  • Assorted colours

5. Best Under Budget: Britspear HH14002

  • Power: N.A.
  • Number of Massage Heads: 4
  • Frequency: 3700 RPM
  • Speed Mode: 6
  • Battery: 2200 mAh
  • Warranty: None

6. Best with Noice Reduction: Allextreme HF-280

  • Power: N/A
  • Number of Massage Heads: 4
  • Frequency: 3200 RPM
  • Speed Mode: 6
  • Battery: 2000 mAh
  • Warranty: 3 Months

The Allextereme HD-280 is a rechargeable massage gun that has 6 levels of speed control. The device has a decent appearance and some basic functions. Let’s see how it performs and see if it’s any good.

You will get any random coloured device when you purchase the Allextereme HF-280. The device has an average build quality. We would call the overall design very mediocre.

It comes with the same four attachment heads that you find on other sub 1500 INR massagers: fork, flat, u shaped, and ball type. The flat head has tiny bumps on its surface, which make the attachment feel nice and a little different when using.

The noise reduction Technology keeps the noise in the range of 35 dB to 55 dB. But that alone isn’t enough to get our recommendation. The product has a small 2000 mAh battery which isn’t capable of running the device for more than 1.5 hours. At the price of 1,700 INR, we believe this is an overpriced product.

You do get a 3-month warranty, but massagers hardly fail in such a short time. For the price, the brand could have provided at least a 6 or 9-month warranty. If you are sceptical about buying products from new brands, only then this 3-month warranty might seem like something worth spending extra 300 bucks on as for around 1,400 INR, you can easily get a similar device without a warranty.

thumbs-up-icon
Pros
  • Assorted colours are good
  • Makes low noise when running
  • 6 levels of speed control
  • Tiny bumps on the massage heads gives a different feel when using

Cons
  • Average battery life
  • Mediocre build
  • A little overpriced

7. Best for Durability: WellNEX Mini

  • Power: 15-160W
  • Number of Massage Heads: 6
  • Frequency: 2800 r/min
  • Speed Mode: 3
  • Battery: 3400 mAh
  • Warranty: 30-day money back + 1 Year

The WellNEX Massage Gun is a premium massage gun that provides out-of-the-world performance. It arrives in a gorgeous bag where you can store it safely.

After unboxing the product, the first thing that you will notice in the package is the spare battery that comes free with it. The product charges for a little over 2 hours and can work for up to 6 hours. The best part of having this device is that the spare battery can be plugged in if you wish to use the product when the charging facility isn’t available.

The rugged body of the massager comes with a matte black finish. When you see it, we’re sure you won’t be able to take your eyes off it. The buttons are placed perfectly, and you can easily reach them when using the massager.

The device comes with a ball head, fork head, cone head, and 3 different flat heads. Two of the flat heads are made of steel for those who like heavy messages. The only thing we didn’t like about this product is that it has only three-speed levels (1500/2200/2800 RPM).

WellNEX Mini comes at a price of 9,000 INR and offers a truly high-class comfort. If you have the budget, there is hardly anything stopping you from getting this product. Feel free to check out the Mini S variant that comes at a slightly higher price and comes with 5-speed levels instead of 3.

thumbs-up-icon
Pros
  • 6 different massage heads (2 made of steel)
  • Free carrying case and spare battery
  • Charges in 2 hours and lasts for 6 hours
  • Premium looks and build quality
  • Extremely comfortable to use
thumbs-down-icon
Cons
  • Only 3-speed levels
  • A little expensive for some people

8. Best for Portability: Sagrach Massage Gun

  • Power: N/A
  • Number of Massage Heads: 6
  • Frequency: 3180 RPM
  • Speed Mode: 30
  • Battery: N/A
  • Warranty: None

The Sagrach Massage Gun let you experience the premium features of the high-end massage guns at a nominal price. Read on to find out why we believe this is an impressive device to consider.

Talking about the physical overview and the in-hand feel, it wouldn’t be incorrect to say that this is the true contender for the title of the best massager under the price of 4,000 INR. It has a status indicator display and other LED lights on its body.

The device has 30 different levels of speed. You get buttons to increase or decrease the speed level. Not to forget, the button placement is amazing. Lowering the speed is one feature that is missing on all the budget massagers that are available for 1,500 INR or even 2,500 INR.

Speed levels of up to 10 are fine for a light massage and if you want an intense experience, try crossing 25. In addition to the standard round head, fork head, gas plug head, and flat head, you also get a thumb head and a triangle head. The thumb head comes in handy for foot massage.

The product comes with a nice carry bag. This is something that should be provided with every massager because that way, it becomes so easy to carry the device around. The device lasts for around 3-4 hours easily, and the remaining battery percentage is shown on the display all the time.

The only place where this product lets you down is in terms of the warranty. Even after spending 4,000 INR, you’ll be getting just a 10-day replacement policy from Amazon. If you decide to buy it, make sure you test it properly in the first week itself.

thumbs-up-icon
Pros
  • Point-on price
  • 30 different speed settings
  • Lightweight and easy to carry in the carrying bag
  • 4 regular and 2 special attachment heads
thumbs-down-icon
Cons
  • No warranty

9. Cheapest Option: COINFINITIVE MIT-45158

  • Power: N/A
  • Number of Massage Heads: 4
  • Frequency: 3600 RPM
  • Speed Mode: 6
  • Battery: 2000 mAh
  • Warranty: 6 Months

The last product on the list of the top-rated massage guns in India is again from the sub-1500 INR category. It’s a massager from a company called Conifinitive that costs 1,400 INR and comes with the standard 4 massage heads.

The Confinitive MIT-45158 is a multifunctional missile gun that you can use on your whole body for general and targeted messages. The device comes in multiple assorted colours, and it really depends on your luck which one you get.

It is powered by a 2000 mAh Li-ion battery that keeps it running for 1.5-2 hours. You would assume devices with a small battery take less time to charge, which is not the case with this one as it takes a good 2 or 3 hours to charge completely. A battery with even a 10% higher capacity would have made it an extremely interesting product to consider.

Nevertheless, there are other good things why you might consider buying this one. The Coinfinitive massage gun comes with a 6-month warranty, according to the seller-customer Q&A section. Unfortunately, nothing is mentioned in the specs section.

It is a very capable massage gun that has an average rating of 4.3 stars from over 150 Amazon reviews. You have to choose between Belionera AMQ003 and the Confinitive MIT-45158 as both are priced exactly the same. The earlier has more reviews, and the latter has a 6-month warranty.

Pros
  • 6-month warranty from the seller
  • Lightweight device
  • 15 mins auto-power off feature
  • Very affordable price

  • Limited battery life

Frequently Asked Questions

Can gun massagers help relieve lower back pain?

Lower back pain has become increasingly common, even in young adults these days. Massagers do provide relief but if you have severe and unbearable back pain then it is better to consult a doctor before trying out any massager.

How long can I use a massager gun?

Never hold the massager at the same place for over 30 seconds at a time. Keep moving the massager from one place to another. 30 seconds are enough for muscle activation. For pain relief, 2-3 minutes of massage will be good enough.

What are the things that I should be careful about when using a gun massager?

Here is a list of the things that you should be careful about when you use a gun massager:

1. Never keep the massager at the same place for a long period.
2. Do not press the massager a lot.
3. Avoid using it on the bones.
4. Don’t increase the speed level suddenly. Start slow and gradually increase it.

Can I use the gun massagers myself?

Of course, you can. The whole purpose of making portable massagers is that they should be easy to use. Not everyone has the luxury of having someone who can massage them. Massagers like the ones we have listed out are ideal for such cases.

What to do if the skin turns red after massaging?

Usually, there’s nothing to worry about if you don’t feel irritation or inflammation for more than a few minutes. The skin turns red due to increased activity of the muscles and dilation of the blood vessels. If the skin stays red after an hour or so, consult your doctor.

Verdict

If you still haven’t made up your mind about which massager that you would like to buy, then let us make things a little easier for you. Here are our top 3 picks from the list:

  • Clearly, the WellNEX Mini that money can buy. It has tons of different features and offers best in class performance. You will have to pay close to 9,000 INR, but for the price, you get a very premium product.
  • We recommend Caresmith Charge Massage Gun for those looking for a mix of good performance and value. The device costs 2,800 INR only and brings all the features that you will ever need in a massager.
  • The Belionera AMQ003 Massage Gun costs less than 1,400 INR, and this is a nice device for first-time buyers of massage guns. The device doesn’t have a lot of massage heads, a high power motor, or great battery life, but it still gets the job done well. It’s very convenient to use and easy to carry in a bag. Highly recommended for casual users.
