Theragun Sense vs PRO Plus

In this Theragun Sense vs PRO Plus review, we will compare the brand-new midrange and flagship massage guns of Dallas, Texas-based Therabody.

Both devices go beyond percussive therapy, with a built-in biometric sensor allowing them to provide personalized insights and heart rate readings during breath work routines. The PRO Plus goes even further than that, offering six different treatments.

So should you invest in the high-end model, or is the Sense the better fit for your needs? This side-by-side comparison will help you find out.
