Healing Systems > Electrotherapy (TENS & NMS)

Is the use of electrical stimulation of the peripheral nervous system to override the pain messages in the body. This modern, non invasive, cost effective, drug-free system is widely recognised as an effective method of relieving both acute or chronic pain.

TENS(Transcutaneous Electrical Nerve Stimulation)
Pain relief with TENS is produced through high frequency electrical impulses of the nerves, muscles and cells of the body. These impulses help block the body's ability to send a pain message to the brain and increase the body's ability to produce its own pain killing substances, called endorphins. There are no side effects - making this treatment a powerful and clean therapeutic option.

There are many painful conditions that TENS has provided pain relief. These include: acute sprains & strains, arthritis, carpal tunnel syndrome, fibrositis, low back pain, osteoarthritis, shingles, spinal cord disorders, sports injuries and tendonitis.

TENS should not be used:
• by people with a pacemaker, epilepsy or a heart condition
• by women who are pregnant
• around the head
• by people with infected skin conditions

NMS (neuro-muscular Stimulation) is the application of an electrical stimulus to make the muscles automatically exercise. NMS will increase the blood circulation to injured areas, mobilise muscles and joints and strengthen muscle groups.
