I always wondered if these were safe to use. Yes they are sold in so many stores, but the though of electricity going through your body… I don’t know. Whàt do you think? Have you used a tens machine?

  • I would love a TENS machine! I’ve never considered them to be unsafe as I figured they would be suitably tested before being sold to the public. But then again, there are so many recalls these days, you just can’t be sure

  • I have not used a circulation booster but it’s not a bad idea, except they cost around $300 so maybe in the future.I’m sure they would be safe to use as long as you bought a decent brand.

  • yeah i think that they are supposed to be fine and even encouraged for use for labouring women as pain management

  • Thank you for your comments

  • Tens machines are used by physios & are safe. If you purchase them for your personal use always read the instructions as they are not suitable for people with pacemakers.

  • I have heard they are very good.

  • I’ve seen old Dawn Fraser advertise a circulation booster on TV lately. It looks alright, hubby is considering getting one
