It’s been a tiring year for the discerning gent. You’ve worked so hard for 12 months and your body is feeling it. Gym sessions don’t feel as good as the should? Perhaps they are causing more pain than they should? Wouldn’t it be great to have your very own masseuse on hand to relieve the tension and stress of everyday living?
Before that might have been impossible. Today not so much as technology is your friend. Something that can remedy post-exercise soreness – tick. Something that is highlight portable – tick. Step forward the Omron HeatTens device, which brings the stimulating magic of transcutaneous electrical nerve stimulation (TENS) technology into the hands of everyday men (and women) to apply a customisable programme of heat and/or massage therapy to your aching bodies.
The application is simple. Using the two adhesive pads that are strategically applied to sections of the body – aided by diagrams that demonstrate where and how, troubled joints and muscles can be zapped or melted away. For really troublesome spots, both heat and TENS can be applied simultaneously too.
All this can be applied whilst you get on with everyday life. From sedate pursuits such as watching the TV through to getting on with life’s demands. The main device is rechargeable and slips into a (loose fitting) pocket or in your bag, so the option for it to fit into your life and not the other way around is invaluable.
TENS can sometimes be confused with the type of treatment is administered. Generally, TENS is used as part of the recovery phase by physios. The stimulation will help to ease the discomfort caused by an injury but it will not fix the cause of the pain. So it’s always better to use this, or other similar devices, as part of a medically-advised recovery programme. To ease away life’s tensions and stresses from tired muscles, the Omrom HeatTens is an easy way to integrate heat and massage therapy into the life of the discerning gent.
