HOW DO I USE MY Stryke Recovery Massager?
Here’s some basic best practices to get the most out of your Stryke Recovery Massager, whether you’re treating yourself or others.
1. Always turn on the Stryke Recovery Massager before placing it on the body.
2. If you have a PRO, you can press the speed button to toggle between our signature six speed treatment levels.
3. For muscle activation, recovery, and tension relief, simply “float” the Stryke Recovery Massager on muscles that need the most attention - it was designed to do all the work for you. Slowly glide the Stryke Recovery Massager up and down the muscle, gradually applying light to moderate pressure as needed.
4. Breathe and relax and remember to stretch. It feels amazing!
HOW LONG SHOULD I USE MY Stryke Recovery Massager?
Depending on the desired result, we recommend using your Stryke Recovery Massager for a minimum of 15 seconds and a maximum of 2 minutes per muscle group. A full-body session should not exceed 15 minutes. Treat yourself 2-3 times per day.
30 SECONDS = MUSCLE ACTIVATION
Prior to workouts or physical activity, float your Stryke Recovery Massager for up to 30 seconds to instantly activate and “wake up” your muscles.

Reactivate muscles during your workout or any activity by using your Stryke Recovery Massager for 10-15 seconds on the muscle group. This will re-energize, relieve muscle spasms and fatigue, and keep muscles active.
2 MINUTES = PAIN RELIEF & RECOVERY
Float your Stryke Recovery Massager for up to 2 minutes for muscle recovery post-workout to decrease soreness, and on any muscles that require immediate pain relief.

HOW DOES PERCUSSIVE THERAPY WORK?
Tension is the root cause of most body aches and pains. The breakthrough treatment of Stryke Recovery Massager Percussive Therapy relieves the tension in our soft tissue effectively and efficiently.
The percussive massage overrides the pain signals to the brain, increases heat in the tissue, and releases tension. It does this through a combination of amplitude depth and percussion frequency.
Stryke Recovery Massager uses these two principles of depth and speed to speak to your body in a language it can understand, and provide a deeper and more effective experience than any other consumer device.

Do not use the Stryke Recovery Massager or charger in the presence of explosive atmospheres (gaseous fumes, dust, or flammable materials). Sparks may be generated, possibly causing a fire.
UNPLUGGING THE CHARGER. Pull the plug, not the cord, to reduce the risk of damage to the electrical plug and cord. Never carry charger by its cord. Keep the cord from heat, oil, and sharp edges. Do not use or charge with a damaged cord. Do not stretch the charger cord or place the cord under strain. Keep cord away from heated surfaces. Do not handle the charger, including the charger terminals or Stryke Recovery Massager with wet hands.
CHARGER CARE. Unplug the charger when not in use. Unplug the charger from the outlet when not in use for extended periods. Make sure the charger cord is located so that it will not be stepped on, tripped over, or otherwise subjected to damage or stress. Have a damaged charger replaced immediately.
DO NOT OVERCHARGE. Do not leave the battery in the charger for more than an hour after the battery has been fully charged. The battery includes a protection system to avoid the risk of overcharging. However, overcharging may reduce its life over time.
DO NOT BLOCK MOTOR VENTS. Do not put any obstructions into vents. Do not use if any vent is blocked. Keep free of dust, lint, hair, and anything that may reduce airflow. Keep hair, loose clothing, and fingers from vents and moving parts.

If eyes are exposed to battery chemicals, immediately flush with water for 20 minutes and seek medical attention. Remove and dispose of contaminated clothing.
DO NOT SHORT CIRCUIT. A battery will short circuit if a metal object makes a connection between the positive and negative contacts on the battery or the 12V connector. A short-circuited battery may cause fire and personal injury.

Always dispose of the PRO according to federal, state, and local regulations. Contact a recycling agency in your area for recycling locations. Even discharged batteries contain some energy. Before disposing of, use electrical tape to cover the PRO’s 12V connector to prevent the battery from shorting, which could cause a fire or explosion.
