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.
