What is TENS Massage & A Review of Santamedical #TENSUnit Handheld Electronic Pulse Massager


TENS stands for Transcutaneous Electrical Nerve Stimulation.  In other words this massage is delivered by non-invasive electrodes attached to the skin.  TENS is widely used for pain management.  Musculo-skeletal discomfort like back pain, carpal tunnel syndrome, tension in the shoulders and hips as well as foot pain can benefit from TENS massage. It should not be used on the head, near the heart, directly on the spinal column or on the front of the neck for protection of your health

TENSmassagerSantamedical offered me a complimentary unit for the purposes of review.  When I saw how small the unit itself was I was skeptical about how effective the treatment would be.  Well, I need to learn to never judge a book by it’s cover AND size doesn’t matter, LOL! This little TENS massager packs a punch with just 4 AAA batteries and 4 included reusable electrode attachment pads.  The massager offers a number of pre-programmed massage options and also the ability to adjust the intensity of the massage.

The first time I used the unit on my arms.  I placed one pad near my forearm and another one on my upper arm because I’d been experiencing tension from too much typing (hmmm :P).  I set it to just a basic massage at level 2 and it barely felt like anything.  So I turned it up by one notch at a time until I felt something that was more like massage.  Then I turned it up a few more notches just to see how it would affect my muscles.  Whoa! It was fun, and a little painful, to watch my arm jump involuntarily for a few seconds.

Next I attached the pads to my shoulders near my neck and the other set on my hips.  It was nice to be able to massage two areas at once with one program but adjust the intensity for each separately.

    If you wanna see what this thing can really do, you should try using it on your back when you have lower back pain! It’s like a dream come true. I was skeptical at first because the whole idea of using electric shocks seems kinda “woo woo” to me but once I actually tried it I instantly became a believer.
