Whether getting back on the spin bike after vacay, hitting it extra hard in barre or just having an off day, sometimes my muscles need more than just stretching post-workout. If you can relate, great news! The device that delivers when this duty calls is now on sale, and it's oh-so-portable. You'll never be without relief!

From one of the established leaders in the massage gun arena, Therabody, I've had the first generation Theragun Mini for a few years, and I recommend it most highly. When I bought it, I was having a shoulder issue. These days, I mostly use it on my tight glutes or calves, and the mini massager gets the knots out in no time. And even though I'm an overpacker, there's always room for it in my carry-on bag.


What's more, the Theragun Mini is easy to hold onto—super important, as certain spots need to be avoided. (By the way, you should check with your doctor to see if you're a safe candidate to use one before purchasing.)

The latest model of the Theragun Mini, regularly $199, is currently on sale for $168.98 on Amazon (in black). It's available in desert rose or white as well on Therabody, on sale for $179. The device has 120-minutes of battery life, connects to the Therabody app through Bluetooth, comes with three attachments (standard ball, dampener and thumb) and a soft case as well a USB-A to USB-C charging cable. It's also 20 percent smaller and 30 percent lighter than the earlier model and has three speeds: 1,750, 2,100 and 2,400 PPMs.

Here's to easy recovery! And don't forget to stretch!
