How does this device work to reduce pain?
“The Wellness Pro® Plus elctrotherapy device produces the FASTEST LONG TERM RESULTS by alleviating acute and chronic pain symptoms. It is widely used around the world and is the premier choice of health care professionals, athletes, coaches, and medical research facilities.“
Wellness Pro® Plus impulses stimulate the peripheral nerves that send information about touch and vibration. The signals from the stimulated nerves interfere with pain signals traveling to the brain which reduces the brain’s perception of pain. In addition, the frequencies generated by the Wellness Pro® stimulate endogenous opiods. These can eliminate pain through the same biological processes as prescription pain medications but without the harmful side effects.”

When can I expect results from treatments?
“A licensed professional will attach either self adhesive or carbon rubber electrodes to specific areas of your body. An electrode gel may be applied to facilitate better conductivity of the devices’ output. There should be no discomfort during treatment and you may or may not feel a slight tingling. Electrode placement and treatment duration should be determined by a licensed professional. Typical treatments can last between 10-60 minutes. Contact your practitioner for more information.
Are there side effects?
“The most common side effect is the reduction and/or elimination of pain. Sometimes as a result of increased detoxification when using the unit, patients may experience atypical symptoms including but not limited to diarrhea, night sweats, headaches, nausea, flu-like symptoms etc. Make sure you consult your practitioner when you experience any atypical symptoms.
Is this like a TENS* device?
“The Wellness Pro® Plus has been FDA cleared as a TENS (Transcutaneous Electrical Nerve Stimulation) device in that it uses electrical stimulation to relieve PAIN. However, unlike other TENS devices on the market the Wellness Pro® Plus has the largest frequency range coupled with a unique delivery system that blocks pain signals and helps increase blood flow. The Wellness Pro® Plus therefore enhances various effects of the body that stimulate the cell to a state of restoration and wellness, giving longer term results than any other device on the market.
