3-in-1 Combo TENS Machine, EMS and Massage have both Transcutaneous Electric Nerve Stimulation (TENS) and Electrical Muscle Stimulation (EMS) technology to help manage pain, rehabilitation from injury and improve muscle performance.
TENS (Transcutaneous Electrical Nerve Stimulation) can be effective in the relief of pain. High-frequency TENS currents activate the pain-inhibiting mechanisms of the nervous system. Electrical impulses from electrodes, placed on the skin over or near the pain area, stimulate the nerves to block the pain signals to the brain, thus creating the perception of no pain. Low-frequency TENS currents facilitate the release of endorphins, the body’s natural painkillers.
Muscle Tone and Performance
EMS (Electronic Muscle Stimulation) treatment delivers electrical impulses through the skin into the nerve fibres and muscles beneath. Skin contact is made via surface electrodes placed on the body. The EMS unit will then stimulate the muscles to contract and relax. EMS can be used for toning and strengthening all muscle groups for athletic training, bodybuilding and sports injuries, after pregnancy, weight loss, cosmetic purposes, chronic back pain and incontinence.

How do Electrical Muscle Stimulation (EMS) Machines work?
Electrical Muscle Stimulation (EMS) is a technique to stimulate muscles with an electric current to achieve a specific result. This result is often to relieve inflammation after injury and to build strength during rehabilitation after injury or surgery.
How does EMS differ from TENS?
The easiest way to tell the difference between TENS (Transcutaneous Electrical Nerve Stimulation) and EMS is that TENS targets nerves to reduce pain, whereas EMS targets muscles to aid recovery.
TENS machines act to block pain signals reaching the brain and release endorphins to make you feel good. EMS machines on the other hand target specific muscles to reduce inflammation and force these muscles to fire when an injury may prevent you from using these muscles naturally. By keeping these muscles engaged they will not lose strength (atrophy), so you can return to regular activity and performance sooner.
Key Benefits of an EMS Machine
- An EMS machine has many benefits for your muscles. It can: Relax the muscle
- Minimise muscle inflammation
- Prevent atrophy of the muscle
- Speed up muscle healing
- Stimulate muscle growth
