This is NOT a silent massager because it’s very powerful. If you’re looking for the quietest and weakest massage gun, this is NOT for you. This massager also has a hard ball. If you are sensitive to hard pressure (like deep tissue massages), this is not the ideal massager for you. But if you're looking for the best self recovery tool, you’re in the right place. One of the best things about the hand held Vybe massager is its versatility. This massager tool is not only great for relieving chronic sore muscles, working out a difficult muscle knot, and workout recovery, but also to relieve achy legs, back, neck and shoulder from sitting for extended periods while at work or traveling. Many customers love it to loosen up the muscles for a deeper stretch before doing yoga or gymnastics. Each trigger point you release will be thanking you!
