Transcutaneous electrical nerve stimulation (TENS) is a method of pain relief involving the use of a mild electrical current.
A TENS machine is a small, battery-operated device that has leads connected to sticky pads called electrodes.
You attach the pads directly to your skin. When the machine is switched on, small electrical impulses are delivered to the affected area of your body, which you feel as a tingling sensation.
The electrical impulses can reduce the pain signals going to the spinal cord and brain, which may help relieve pain and relax muscles. They may also stimulate the production of endorphins, which are the body's natural painkillers.
What TENS is used for
TENS may be able to help reduce pain and muscle spasms caused by a wide range of conditions including:
- Period pain
- pelvic pain
- Knee pain
- Back Pain
- Neck and shoulder pain
- Sports injuries.
Trying TENS - Blip Pro™ Neck and Shoulder Massager
Unlike traditional neck massagers, the intelligent Blip Pro™ neck massager brings a clinical-grade relief technology in an elegant and compact design. It uses a patented pulse heating system for instant relief and maximal comfort.
Our engineers created six different massage modes that emulate traditional acupuncture: vibration, pressure, electro-stimulation, shiatsu, pulse, allowing your rigid connective tissue to relax almost instantly by accessing the depth of your trigger points.
The intelligent neck massager Blip Pro™ works by combining low frequency electrical impulses with constant heat and TENS™ technology (Transcutaneous Electrical Nerve Stimulation).
This technology has unlimited benefits that allow the release of natural painkillers called endorphins. TENS electrical impulses flood the nervous system, reducing its ability to transmit pain signals to the spinal cord and brain.
Once your massage is complete, expect to have a much fuller range of motion that is closer to normal.
