Using TENS therapy for circulation of blood, lymph and fluids.

Understanding circulation


The prime method of getting needed oxygen and nutrients to the cells of the body is the blood circulation system. If blood flow in an area is poor then the cells will find it very difficult to get all of the energy and food nutrients they need to enable the body to operate in a healthy manner.
If poor blood circulation isn't treated, it can lead to a lifetime of discomfort and even more serious problems.

Potential causes

Peripheral Artery Disease -


PAD is a circulatory condition that causes narrowing of the blood vessels and arteries.

(PAD) can lead to poor circulation in your legs.




Blood Clots -

Partially or entirely blood flow blockage can develop almost anywhere in your body,

A   blood clot that develops in your arms or legs   can lead to circulation problems.


Varicose Veins -

Enlarged veins caused by incompetent venous valves. The veins appear gnarled and engorged, and they are most often found on the back of the legs.

These veins cannot move blood as efficiently as other veins.



Diabetes -

Over time, diabetes damages the small blood vessels in your body, causing the walls of the blood vessels to stiffen

Poor circulation caused by diabetes can cause leg cramping, as well as pain and cramping in your calves, thighs, or buttocks.



Raynaud’s Disease-

 disease causes some areas of your body — such as your fingers and toes — to feel numb and cold in response to cold temperatures or stress. In Raynaud's disease, smaller arteries that supply blood to your skin become narrow, limiting blood flow to affected areas (vasospasm).



 Water retention-

Refers to an excessive build-up of fluid in the circulatory system, body tissues, or cavities in the body. Up to 70% of the human body consists of water and water exists both inside and outside our body's cells.

Bad circulation cause fluids to remain in the tissues, causing swelling in various parts of the body, including the abdomen, ankles, legs, and feet


The lymphatic system is a network of vessels that carry a clear fluid called lymph. The fluid that is forced out of the bloodstream during normal circulation is filtered through lymph nodes to remove bacteria, abnormal cells, and other matter

Using TENS therapy for Circulation

The gentle electrical pulses increase the production of the body's natural pain killer, such as endorphins. The electrical stimulation improves blood circulation as well. Muscles contract and relax with the flow of the electrical stimulation.
As part of your management plan for diagnosed poor circulation, you may use electrical nerve stimulation and cell stimulation from ITOUCH
ITOUCH electrotherapy can be used every day - outside the clinic for an effortless, regular aid to better circulation. It is designed to be used on the move and suitable for use during long plane or car journeys. Its a drug three method as well as a pain reliever.

How to use ITOUCH TENS DEVICES for improved circulation

Pad placements - Circulation

Lower body - Place the pads at the back or front of each ankle. The signal passes back and forth between the two pads. This means that the muscles and circulatory system of both legs are being stimulated.
Upper body - Place the pads on either wrist.
One limb only - Place one pad at the most affected joint and the second pad 15 to 20cm away.
