Did yesterday’s workout make your muscles cry for help today? Don’t worry, this is a positive sign that you’re on your way to becoming a stronger and healthier version of yourself (even if it doesn’t feel like it yet!).

For the most part, muscular pain and stiffness occurs after a heavy and intense workout. Muscle soreness occurs when the micro-tearing of your muscles drives your body to initiate the repair process, which repairs your muscles bigger and stronger than before. The pain you feel is known as DOMS; Delayed Onset Muscle Soreness.

While sore muscles are an unavoidable part of the journey to getting stronger, it doesn’t mean it’s a pleasant one. However, there are some proven steps you can follow to help with your recovery and reduce the pain. …

As the northern hemisphere enters the colder months, many of us will struggle to keep the same training energy and intensity that we feel during the summer period. We’ve put together our top 5 tips for how you can keep that internal flame burning, even when staying in bed seems like the much safer option.

  1. Keep the routine going. It’s widely agreed that routines play an important role in helping our mental health in check. Feeling a sense of control over our lives is especially important during such an uncertain time, and as it gets colder and darker it becomes increasingly difficult to start a new routine.

Here at Flow, we think percussion therapy is a great way to help athletes unlock their full potential. But what exactly is it?

Percussion therapy, through the use of a tool, is a way of delivering bursts of pressure to soft body tissue via short-duration pulses. In short, it’s like using a mini jackhammer on your body (a very nice mini jackhammer).

Using a handheld massage device like the Flow PRO or the Flow MINI, you can deliver a series of short pressure bursts into your soft tissue, like your muscles, tendons and ligaments.

There are a number of reasons that you might want to do this. …

2020 is racing by and before we know it Christmas will be upon us. It can be a challenging time of year which is why so many people begin their gift shopping months in advance, which is why we’ve made life easier for you with this list on why a Flow MINI is the ideal Christmas Present.

  1. Working From Home is set to continue into the new year. Covid-19 doesn’t show signs of going away any time soon and one of the side effects of that is office workers continuing to base themselves at their kitchen table or a poorly arranged desk. Without the proper workplace set up workers are developing more aches and strains than ever before. …

With more and more handheld massage devices entering the market, you might be forgiven for thinking that there’s little difference between them all besides the price and colour. But if you take a closer look you’ll see that there’s more to these recovery tools than meets the eye.

The Motor

Everything starts with the motor. One of the first things anyone will notice when picking up a massage device is how loud it is. Early pioneers in this industry argued that loud = more power. Tim the Tool Man Taylor, anyone? We’ve always disagreed with this theory and have put it down to poor engineering. …

As relaxing as it looks.

What do the Black & Decker 400W 230V Pendulum jigsaw and percussion therapy have in common? Nothing, as far as we’re concerned.

However, this is the length that some people are going to in order to tap into the ever-growing market of percussion therapy. Since the early ’80s, percussion therapy has been a commonly used tool in the fight against aches and pains associated with sports and fitness. It makes perfect sense. Rather than taking time out of your work day, getting across town and getting someone to beat your body back into shape you could do it yourself, in the comfort of your own home. …
