TENS Pain Relief
How does TENS work?
Pads are placed on or near the area of pain. Soothing pulses are sent via the pads through the skin and along the nerve fibres. The pulses (controlled by the user at all times) suppress pain signals to the brain. TENS also encourages the body to produce higher levels of its own natural pain killing chemicals called Endorphins and Enkephalins.

What is the history of TENS?
Stone carvings from the Egyptian Fifth Dynasty in 2500 BC depict an electric fish being used to treat pain. Present day TENS began after the landmark paper by Melzack and Wall (1965), entitled “Pain Mechanisms: A New Theory.” An enormous amount of scientific research followed, resulting in the therapy used today.
