Drug free pain relief that is 'in tune' with your body
So you might know all about TENS Pain Relief, but what about Microcurrent therapy, also known as Microcurrent Electrical Neuromuscular Stimulation (MENS) or microamperage electrical neuromuscular stimulation? Tongue twisting terms - but effective and clinically proven to help with a myriad of pain related medical conditions and loved by Clinicians and users alike. Unlike TENS units which use electrical currents for pain relief the microcurrents are so weak in the MT-330A Microcurrent Machine that they won’t stimulate sensory nerves, so the user won't feel any shock-like sensations, but the pain relieving and anti-inflammatory benefits can be immense.
Microcurrent therapy uses really low-level electrical currents (microcurrents) to treat nerve and muscular pain and inflammation. It is particularly effective for the relief of pain because of its close proximity to our own body's current, and it is this characteristic that make many Clinicians prefer microtherapy over TENS pain relief. Because microcurrent therapy works on a cellular level it is thought to be more effective, and more 'in tune' with the human body.
What conditions will benefit from Microcurrent Therapy?
The MT-330A Microcurrent Machine is particularly popular with many Clinicians, as a gentle way to treat pain and inflammation within the body - using a more 'body friendly' method, without the intensity of TENS. It is recommended as a treatment for:
- Back pain
- Diabetic ulcers
- Neck pain
- Slow-healing wounds
- Sports injuries
- Tendon and ligament pain
How will Microcurrent Therapy give me pain relief?
The human body is a wonderful thing; did you know that each tissue type in the body has its own individual electrical frequency? This 'signature' can be disrupted by injury or disease. Microcurrent therapy works by simply restoring these normal frequencies deep within the cells delivering outstanding levels of pain relief, reducing inflammation and improved muscle function. What actually happens is that within the cells the microcurrent therapy actually stimulates a big increase in Adenosine triphosphate (ATP). ATP transports chemical energy within cells for metabolism and increases protein synthesis, which is necessary for tissue repair - which is just what you want with damaged, in pain tissue! Microcurrent therapy also improves circulation and blood flow to the area reducing inflammation which in turn reduces muscle pain and muscle spasms.
Users find with repeated treatments - all in the comfort and privacy of the home remember - that benefits will increase and improve over time with use. This cumulative effect makes it a hugely popular treatment for inflammation and pain.
The MT-330A Microcurrent Machine is a registered medical device and uses electrode pads which stick to the skin to transmit the mild electrical pulses direct to the area of pain or inflammation. Spare electrode pads are readily available, and please take care to purchase quality pads rather than cheaper ones. As the saying goes - you get what you pay for - and our pads will last at least 20 sessions (even longer if you keep them cool in the fridge!) and have high quality copper wires in the pad to ensure you won't get any 'hot spots'. This is not the case with cheaper electrode pads and treatment effectiveness can be compromised by using inferior pads.
Please do not use this microcurrent machine if you are pregnant, or if you have a pacemaker fitted, or you have cancer, without instruction from your GP or healthcare provider.

- More comfortable than TENS, would recommend Review by Tim D
I realise that arthritis pain is unbearable (too true!) but I do not want to take medications for it, I need to help my body manage it. (Posted on 7 October 2016)
- recommend it for effective pain relief, Review by Byzantium
When you get the pad placement right I think this is a super little machine and would recommend it for effective pain relief, and definite improvement in my condition. (Posted on 3 March 2015)
- Good, Review by Mrs Majors Batman
- Misleading Review by Mikey
I am sorry that you are not happy with this machine, I have checked the instructions for use (IFUs) and there is no help with electrode placement, and as it states you should never use transcranially (on the head, say on the temples etc) when treating a headache. We have now added a TENS placement guide to help you and other customers with the correct placement of skin electrodes when using microcurrent technology - http://www.stressnomore.co.uk/downloads/instructions/TENS%20Electrode%20Placement%20Guide.pdf
This TENS skin electrode placement guide will help with the correct placement of the electrodes, especially for headache treatment. We recommend treating the base of the neck to relieve the pressure as shown in the guide, many users find this very effective and I hope you will give it a try.
In the meantime I have spoken with the manufacturer and asked that they provide more of a guidance on correct electrode placement to help with the use of this machine.

I choose these one as it seems quite portable and it mentions it is good for Fibromyalgia, can you confirm what machine would be best for my illness or is this the best one.
I dont mind purchasing another one and if that works better I can keep this as a spare, please advise?
I am new to learning ways to help ease my chronic pain
The NeuroTrac IFC Rehab TENS & NMS is a brilliant rehabilitation machine for people with injuries in the limbs and joints, in particular the shoulders, knees and elbows. However since the TENS/NMS channel is completely independent from the IFC channel you can also use either one separately to relieve any kind of muscle pain or to exercise and rehabilitate weak muscles. You can select programmes and control timing and intensity of stimulation independently for each side of the unit, which gives you the opportunity to completely tailor your treatment for your injury and level of pain. You can combine either TENS and IFC or NMS and IFC depending on what kind of stimulation you require. For example, if you experience localised pain in the top layers of muscles and tissue, you can apply electrodes and use one of the TENS modalities. You can then apply electrodes over a joint in order to deliver deeper pain relief to the deep tissue layers. Alternatively you could use the NMS function to stimulate muscles while the IFC delivers deep tissue pain relief. This is perfect for joint injuries where it’s important to strengthen the surrounding muscles to help them support the injured joint, but where it may be too painful to work out the muscles independently.
If you suffer from localised pain near the surface of your skin as well as pain deep into a joint, you can use both channels of the NeuroTrac IFC Rehab TENS & NMS with two sets of electrodes to deliver different kinds of pain relief. The two separate sides of the unit can be controlled completely independently, so you can use different programmes with different patterns of stimulation, different intensities and for different amounts of time. If you want to strengthen muscles and relieve pain, you can use the IFC side with the NMS function on the other side. This is perfect for people with joint injuries who need to tone up muscles to support the joint but find it too painful to exercise. The collection of pre-set and customisable programmes ensures that the NeuroTrac IFC Rehab is ideal for your specialist to set up for treatment specially designed for you and your injury.
I am currently using a portable ultrasound device for a non union of a fracture femur would your device be OK to use when using the ultrasound device?
Because microcurrent therapy works on a cellular level it is thought to be more effective, and more 'in tune' with the human body and may offer you the pain relief you so desperately need to ease your back pain.
Please do not use this microcurrent machine if you are pregnant, or if you have a pacemaker fitted without instruction from your GP or healthcare provider. We would also recommend consulting your Physician in relation to your use of the ultrasound device also to ensure your safety of use for both products simultaneously.
There instructions for use of this product are also available to download from the product page and may be of use prior to purchase.
