Many people ring us wanting to try the tens machine before they buy, they see the advertisements, as seen on TV, and don’t want to buy sight unseen, thats why we go out into the community and demonstrate the machines at various shows around the country.
So far this year Tens Relief have exhibited at the following cities and towns, Sydney, Melbourne, Brisbane, Perth, Alice Springs, Morwell, Geelong, Ballarat, Bendigo, Albury Wodonga, Shepparton, Traralgon, Warragul, Wangaratta, Canberra, Queanbeyan, Yass, Wagga Wagga, Goulburn, Newcastle, Gold Coast, Coffs Harbour, Nabiac, Lismore, Casino, Toowoomba, and many more smaller towns, too many to mention. Coming up for the rest of the year we will be at Townsville, Cairns, Gladstone, Emerald, Mackay, Proserpine, Hervey Bay, Maryborough, Nambour, Childers, Gin Gin Rockhampton
Over the next six months we may visit your town. If you’d like to try our tens machines give us a call and see where we will be and we can come to your home and do a home demo.
How does TENS work.
TENS or Transcutaneous Electrical Nerve Stimulation. TENS machines have become a recognised and well-proven method of treating pain. Technology research and quality engineering have made TENS a safe and highly effective method of pain relief recommended by pain specialists throughout the world.
TENS refers to the transmission of small electrical pulses through the skin to the underlying peripheral nerves.
TENS theory suggests there are two pain-relieving mechanisms within the body that can be triggered by the use of TENS, resulting in reduction in the sensation of pain.
Conventional (high frequency) TENS is based on the theory that continuous mild electrical activity may block the pain signal travelling to the brain. If the pain signal does not get through to the brain, the pain is not perceived. This theory is often referred to as the gate control theory.
The second way that TENS is thought to work is by stimulation of the body’s own natural pain control mechanism. Low frequency electrical activity may cause the body to release its own pain relieving substances, called endorphins. No matter what pain theory is used, TENS has been proven to be useful in the field of pain management.
Many people feel an immediate benefit from TENS. However a minority may only achieve benefit after repeated, treatment sessions over an extended period of time.
