Theraguns are some of the most popular massage guns, but they are also the most expensive. If you’ve been coveting one, most of Therabody’s catalog is discounted right now as part of their early promotion of Black Friday deals. It doesn’t reduce them to pennies, but it does take about $100 off most of them. Some of the brand’s other personal care and recovery devices, like the luxurious TheraFacePro, are also for sale. The company’s three new massage guns are not yet part of this sale. Still, all of the devices here are only about a year old, so they’re more than capable if you don’t really want some of those new features, like heat or breathing. Read our The best massage guns guide for more.
We test products throughout the year and carefully select these offerings. Products that are out of stock or no longer discounted at the time of publication will be

Even on sale, the Theragun Pro is expensive. For that reason, it is best suited for people who constantly push their muscles to the limit.

The Elite is super quiet and comes with five accessories. It has the same OLED screen as the Pro for controls or to follow massage routines.

The Sense is nearly silent with an LCD screen for routine rides, and has the added bonus of breathing routines and a heart rate sensor. However, it has one less attachment.
We didn’t test the Theragun Prime, but based on everyone else we’ve tested, we’re confident it’s just as solid as its siblings. This asking price is also pretty good for a Theragun. It comes with four accessories and has the same triangular handle for ease of use.
Therabody’s smallest massager is a perfectly good and powerful device, but we recommend it only if you absolutely need to put the smallest thing possible in your bag.

I love Therabody SmartGoggles (9/10, WIRED recommends). Using vibration, massage and heat, it relaxes your eyes and temples, whether you’re stressed, have a headache or just trying to wind down for sleep.

There’s also app support for adjusting heat and vibration levels. This matches the price we saw during the last Prime Day.
Therabody may be best known for its muscle massagers, but it has also dipped its toe into the world of luxury skincare.

It’s expensive for what it is, but it matches the offer we saw during Prime Day.
