Trends in T.E.N.S. #24


Service is the “HEART” of our business.


Reducing PAIN with electricity goes back thousands of years. In ancient times, physicians shocked their pharaohs with electric catfish native to the Nile River. Then Greeks and Romans applied the torpedo ray of the Mediterranean Sea to control pain. These electric fishes delivered jolts to lessen pain successfully. Transcutaneous Electrical Nerve Stimulation, TENS works on the same principle as those ancient fish treatments. TENS sends small charges of electricity through nerves to block pain signals before they reach the brain.


The beauty of TENS is that you can do it yourself at home as needed. The treatment is convenient and completely safe. The unit is a small, portable, electronic stimulator generator with two electrode lead wires that attach to electrodes applied to the skin surface operated by batteries. Exactly how a fish stopped pain wasn’t clear a thousand years ago. We now know the treatment: Transcutaneous Electrical Nerve Stimulation. We now know the answer: electricity.
