HOW IT WORKS
A pulse massager doesn’t actually give you a massage.
Instead, it stimulates the nerve cells in your muscles with electrical impulses. Just stick the pads on wherever you need relief – like your shoulders or back – and switch the device on. You’ll feel a mild tingling sensation during the session. It takes about 15-30mins for minor aches and pains to subside.
Such devices may not be suitable for pregnant women, people with heart conditions or those prone to seizures. Get your doctor’s advice if you’re unsure about using one.
