are placed on or near the area of pain. Soothing pulses are sent via
the electrodes through the skin and along the nerve fibres. The
pulses (controlled by the user at all times) suppress pain signals
to the brain. TENS (Transcutaneous Electrical Nerve Stimulation)
also encourages the body to produce its own natural pain killing
chemicals called Endorphins and Encephalins.
What is the history of TENS?
Stone carvings from the Egyptian Fith Dynasty in 2500BC depict an

Theory." An enormous amount of scientific research followed,
resulting in the therapy used today.
