PainPod M for MicroTherapy and Pain Relief
Research conducted over the last century or so has unequivocally established that in order to maintain their normal, healthy state, many tissues in the body generate minute levels of electricity (electrical potential) [Tai, 2018]. Each tissue also has its own electrical frequency [McMakin, 2013].
PainPod’s BioTechnology supports or restores these naturally occurring “microcurrents”.
At one-millionth of an ampere (µA), this current gently and imperceptibly restores normal cellular tissue frequencies, which has been shown to diminish pain [Armstrong, 2017], reduce fatigue [Kang, 2015], reduce inflammation [Lee, 2011] and increase physical function. [Kwon, 2017]
Our frequency treatment formulations work in two ways, (i) they stimulate the nervous system to precisely block pain messages to the brain [Vance, 2004; Mendell, 2014] and, (ii) they help the body to release Endorphins – hormones that naturally reduce the perception of pain [Tashani, 2009].
The neuromodulation MicroTherapy engineered into the PainPod MiCycle is also combined with regular TENS, bringing together these two clinically proven technologies to create PainPod’s exclusive BiStim system. This dual approach reinforces and expands PainPod’s demonstrated ability to provide effective, drug-free relief from many types of pain, [Vance, 2004] while improving a range of health and wellness conditions as described above
