What Massage Gun Does Manchester City Use?

Manchester City players, along with the players of three other City Football Group clubs, use the Theragun PRO massage gun, the Wave Roller smart vibrating foam roller, and the RecoveryAir PRO to reduce the risk of injury, accelerate recovery and consistently deliver high-quality performances.

The reigning Premier League champions had already incorporated Theragun’s percussive massage devices into their training and recovery protocols in early 2020, about one year before the partnership with Therabody was made official.

Official Recovery Partner of Manchester City

“We continually look for new ways to innovate and improve training and recovery for our players and through the partnership with Therabody, we will be able to provide best in class products, knowledge, and resources to optimize training and recovery,” said James Baldwin, Manchester City’s Head of Physiotherapy.

“[…] These clubs are leading the charge in taking care of their players and providing the best products in the industry to increase player longevity. It’s an honour to be a part of a team whose mission and values align so closely with our own,” Therabody Founder Dr. Jason Wersland added.

Therabody did not only become the Official Recovery Partner of Manchester City as part of the deal. The partnership also includes three other clubs of the City Football Group – Melbourne City, Sichuan Jiuniu FC, and Mumbai City.

In December 2020, Therabody was already named the Official Tech Wellness Partner of Real Madrid. They have also partnered with Paris Saint-Germain, Bayern Munich, Arsenal FC, and AC Milan, as well as individual players including Manchester City’s Kevin De Bruyne.

Here is how Manchester City players treat their muscles before and after a game:


To support the muscle groups that support their stride and increase circulation, the players use their Theragun PRO to massage their quads, hamstrings, and calves for 15 seconds each.


In order to get back onto the pitch sooner and come back even stronger, the players target their feet, shins, calves, hamstrings, and quads with the Dampener attachment for 30 seconds each. They then switch to the Wedge attachment to sweep along their IT bands for another 30 seconds each.
