TENS Machine

You know, I have the most thoughtful husband ever! When I’m hurting, he listens and tries so hard to make my life easier.

Well, at Christmas 2015, I was having a particularly rough time and he decided to do what he does, and that’s to look up things that could help me. What he came across was so good, that I use it all the time.

He discovered that there was a machine called a TENS machine. What this does is to help stimulate certain points on your body that will help to heal your pain issues. In this case the TENS machine he bought for me has so many different little programs in it, for Shoulders, Neck, Back, Elbows, Hip, Hands, Feet, Arms, Knees, Ankles, and Wrist. There are other settings you can use on any of those parts of your body as well.

We have been using a Dr. Ho TENS machine for about 25 years. Bought it through an infomercial on TV and used it pretty extensively over the years. Unfortunately, the Dr. Ho doesn’t have the types of options built into it, so purchasing a new one now made sense (we certainly got our monies worth out of it). Fortunately, I can use the pads from the old machine with the new one!

When he was investigating this particular TENS machine, he discovered that he could purchase gloves with it as well. When it came, and I used the gloves the first time, I was amazed at how well it worked. So well, in fact, that I ordered the Socks and Knee Bands that go with it too.

The way the gloves work is you wet them with a little bit of water (using a spray bottle). Put the gloves on, plug the wire into the machine and set the appropriate program – in this case for the hands. There are silver threads in the gloves that help conduct the pulses through the gloves to your hands. It feels really great and helps so much when I have a flare-up. It seems to calm the inflammation down enough that I can manage the pain better.

I hope this will be of help to some of you out there.

Have a blessed day.
