    Does anybody know where on the internet I can find the acupuncture points for the tens unit to be placed in those areas? I'm in a lot of pain. I usually put the pads between the area that hurts but i heard that this was a much more affective way to use it. Thanks.

    it relaxes your muscles and in my opinion heals them to a certain extent. i have fibromyalgia and if it wasnt for my tens unit i wouldnt be able to get out of the bed. ive had pain so bad i couldnt walk and this made my pain go almost totally away. you can use it for any kind of muscle pain or fatigue or tightness. I think it might also have something to do with the nerve endings. Hope this helps at least a little bit. God Bless. Thanks for the site!!!!

    p.s. i guess i should add that its an electrical current that goes thru the pads wherever you place them[This Message was Edited on 10/02/2005]
