    pulsating buzz... hmmm.
    Picture this.. i can put it on constant mode. Now picture your resting heartbeat.... i can go anywhere form it feeling like a resting heartbeat type pulse action to a very fast heartbeat action all the way to a constant buzz that doesnt stop. After a workout what would be the most benifical to replace massage? A squeezing realxing feeling like a heartbeat or a constant buzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzz?

    You guys should try an actpuncture guy who attaches a TENS machine to the needles. Studies have shown that it can be up to a 1000 times better results! I would agree.

    Just had some E.M.S treatment (WITH MASSAGE/FRICTION WORK) from a physio on my upper right hamstring, and it completely sorted the injury after.
    The treatment was 5 days after the injury occured, and was back into heavy training the day after the treatment with no ill affect.

    For overall versatility, I like to use EMS. That way all options are open. I have an article on the subject in the archives.

    Why does our athletic trainer pay big bucks for a tens machine? How is it exponentially better than my $40 ems7500 unit? I still don't get it.

    Where did you get an EMS7500 for $40? I've looked everywhere online and can only find them for $60 and up.
