What is stim therapy and how can it help me?
Electric Stimulation for Healing
It's believed that the first instances of using electricity for pain relief date back to the Ancient Egyptians when they discovered that certain species of electrical fishes are capable of generating electric shocks to soothe pain.
Thanks to the discoveries of those many centuries ago, humans have been able to evolve from using fishes for pain relief and have learned how to harness electricity within man made devices.
Electric stimulation, or stim therapy, is a safe way to stop pain within muscles by sending small electrical pulses through the tissue to disrupt pain signals that travel from nerves to the brain. By disrupting the pain signals, you can seek relief in a unique and modern way.
