Most bodily areas respond very positively to Myobuddy massage. But be very careful, lightly treating the back and sides of the neck. Do not treat the front of the neck/throat. Do not use on veriscosities, tissue inflammation or healing injuries such as stitches and healing bones. Stay away from tumors, undiagnosed lumps and cysts. Do not use the Myobuddy Massager on your face or head. Consult your physician prior to use. For complete safety information read the entire safety guide in our user manuals.

Can I use lotions and massage oils with a Myobuddy Massager?

Absolutely! In fact, your Myobuddy Massager takes a little lotion or oil (1.5 tsp) and spreads it very well. Use nutritive oils such as organic coconut oil, cacao butter or jajoba oil. Check out product page for our line of oils and lotions. This is especially good after dry-brushing, as dry brushing is exfoliating. We also recommend using aroma therapy oils on the blue pad.

Is it safe to use a Myobuddy Massager on clothing and fabric?

Yes, the micro fiber plush bonnets have some slip, allowing them to glide over most cloth without harm or bunching. Just be sure to keep the spinning disk away from loose, stringy cloth and jewelry. For complete safety information read the entire safety guide.

Can a Myobuddy Massage cause itching?

No worries! Itching is a common feeling with sudden increase in circulation. When the muscle cells and blood vessels dilate, stimulation of the nervous system may create minor itching sensation.

Have any studies been conducted on percussive massagers?

Recent studies have shown that percussive massage can cause muscle tissue to contract more than 30 times more powerful than normal voluntary contractions. Interestingly, like yoga and exercise, this action results in muscular and fascial lengthening and strengthening, leading to improved muscle strength and enhanced muscle recovery. This magical combination of results in relieving muscular tightness and reducing the physical stress placed on bones and joints. A percussive massage has proven to deliver more oxygen and nutrients into the muscle and fascial tissues. The results are reduced stress and soreness, and improved muscle function. Used in the rehabilitation process, the percussive massager expedites the healing and recovery of non-use atrophic muscles that have been injured due to trauma, surgery or disease. This result makes it the perfect tool for people with paralysis.

Are percussive massagers safe?

Myobuddy Massagers are used safely every day. But make sure you read the entire safety and user manual and follow instructions.

Use the edge for a harder, deeper massage, focusing the percussive action on your trigger points, scar tissue and hypertonicities.

When should I use the flat aspect of the massager?

Use the flat aspect for warming your tissue, and general all-over massaging. It feels amazing!

When should I use high speeds?

High speed is necessary for a smoother warming massage. Use high speed when you want a greater surface area to benefit.

When should I use low speeds?

When I use Myobuddy, can I feel the vibration in the handle?

Why does my skin turn red when I use my Myobuddy Pro Massager?
