T.E.N.S Machines

TENS stands for  transcutaneous electrical nerve stimulation.    Which basically means that it is electrical nerve stimulation applied to the skin.

My kids bought me a “revitive”, which is  a machine that has a foot base with placements for the feet.  These have separate electrodes just for the feet and a separate setting.  Then there are two places to add plug ins for TENS pads .  I can use other attachments as well and I have glove attachments for my hands.

I also have a small portable tens machine that is rechargeable.  I take it with me when I go away.  The portable T.E.N.S machine has a lot of functions such as massage, cupping, acupressure, stroking – each with a changeable strength.

There is a reason I am telling you about this!

I have been using my portable one since I strained my back recently – that, along with DMSO helped me considerably.

  1. First of all I want to say wonderful blog!

    I had a quick question that I’d like to ask if you don’t mind.
    I was interested to find out how you center yourself
    and clear your head prior to writing. I’ve had trouble clearing my thoughts in getting my thoughts out.
    I truly do enjoy writing however it just seems like the first 10 to 15 minutes tend to
    be wasted just trying to figure out how to begin. Any suggestions
    or tips? Thank you!

    • Hello and thank you for commenting. I usually only write what I truly believe in and what I am passionate about. I find that if I do some research or experiment first it helps the words flow. For example – I was using the T.E.N.S machine whilst describing it. I would suggest you find your passion and write about that first. I hope that helps 🙂
