What is Therabody?

Now more than ever, it's critical that people have access to safe, effective, high-quality wellness solutions. We imagined a world where whole-body wellness was attainable, effective, and natural—without a laundry list of side effects. We believe that you can feel better naturally, without harmful toxins and chemicals.

We want to give people the ability to help themselves feel better naturally. The success of Theragun Percussive Therapy and the genuine impact it's had on many people's lives helped us realize that there's so much more work to be done in the natural wellness space. There's a need for wellness solutions that are both natural and effective. So, to meet that need, which is bigger than percussive therapy, we've evolved into Therabody. As a tech wellness company, we'll continue to use cutting-edge technology and research to deliver scientifically validated natural products and services that you can trust.

What is percussive therapy?

Theragun Percussive Therapy is massage reinvented™. Dr. Jason created percussive therapy to increase blood flow and decrease tension deep within the muscle, using scientifically-calibrated combination of speed and depth to treat your muscles comfortably by overriding the pain signals sent to the brain. Theragun Percussive Therapy works because each device offers a unique combination of these three things: Amplitude (depth) Our 16 mm amplitude allows our Theragun devices to treat deep within the muscle to release tension. Frequency (speed) Our 2400 percussion per minute (40 per second) speed allows our devices to override the pain signals to your brain, making the treatment experience more comfortable than manual muscle therapy. Torque (no-stall force) Our devices can withstand up to an additional 60 pounds of applied pressure—without stalling—so you can most effectively treat the areas that need it.

What’s the difference between percussive therapy and vibration therapy?

The main difference between percussive therapy and vibration therapy is that percussive therapy reaches deeper into the muscle, 60% deeper, in fact. While vibration therapy feels good on the surface of the body, it’s a “global” experience as opposed to a targeted one. Percussive therapy targets treatment areas by reaching deep enough into the muscle to increase the amount of blood flow and oxygen needed for efficient treatment and recovery. Also, because Theragun Percussive Therapy devices touch the body and come off of it 40 times per second, the brain does not acclimate to the stimulation, making the therapy more effective.

Is the app going to store my personal information?

The health and activity data collected on your Therabody app stays there, period. At Therabody, we understand your health and activity data is yours and yours alone. We don’t collect, sell, or share any of your data, ever. In fact, feel free to test this by activating Airplane Mode on your phone. You’ll see that the app continues to work independently of any signal, as all of your data is stored locally on your device.
