Default Excited for this

Every month or so, my niece's school has a book fundraiser called Books are fun. I usually do order something to help the school out, as for every 10 books or items they sell they get a free item for the school. There are cookbooks, books, small games and other gadgets to buy. Well this time I bought an electronic massager. It is suppose to be something that the Chinese have used for years. It claims by following along in the book, you place the electrodes on your body and then are able to massage in many different ways for acupuncture to others. It claims it can help with muscle soreness, lower blood pressure, relieve headaches and more. I should have it in an hour or so when my niece drops it off. I can not wait to try it out and will let you all know what I think of it.

Considering the education climate today, I'm actually fairly surprised some "outraged" PTA mom hasn't thrown a fit about the "electric massagers" being sold by kids. I realize, this is probably not what it sounds like, but it doesn't have to be, it just has to sound that way.

You will have to let us know how you like it. I have seen similar things before and wondered if they really worked. Keep us posted.

Have you used it yet? Did you like it? Things like this make me excited as well. And if it makes you feel good then it is well worth it.

Sounds pretty neat. I am always leary to buy that sort of stuff though as I sometimes think that things like that are a hoax.

using it right now. Used it twice yesterday as well. I love it. It tingles but feels great. It was easy to set up and you can pick what sort of massage you want from stroking to accupunture to cupping. Feels great and I am sure that I will get my use out of it,

Glad that you liked it. Usually I do not tend to have much luck with stuff like this. It always looks great but then never works right. What health benefits are you getting out of it?

Cool that you liked it. I agree that sometimes things like this are junk. Best of luck to you.

Sounds pretty neat to me. I love it when things like this work. And who can go wrong with a massage?

Sounds like a tens device. I was given one by th VA for a disc herniation. It works great, I still use it when I have had a rough day on the job.

Here are some that are similar to mine, TENS 7000 Pain Management Tens Unit | Overstock.com
