How does the Dolphin Neurostim OTC work?2016-11-09T17:39:11-04:00

The battery-operated Dolphin Neurostim OTC works by sending an electrical impulse to locate, then stimulate areas of low resistance. When properly stimulated, these areas relax muscles, improve circulation, and trigger the release of beta-endorphins – the body’s own painkillers. By activating the body’s natural healing and pain relieving response, our units have become a preferred alternative to pharmaceuticals.

Does the Dolphin Neurostim OTC have to be applied by a trained specialist?2016-11-09T17:39:43-04:00

Perhaps one of the greatest advantages of our palm-sized unit is that it’s non- invasive, or needle-free, which makes it very easy to apply. It relies instead on electronic impulses to reproduce the physiological results of traditional acupuncture. This means that the Dolphin Neurostim OTC can be successfully applied by both novices and professionals – whenever and wherever pain strikes. Every unit comes with a concise and easy-to-digest treatment manual.

How do you find an area of low resistance?2017-01-25T16:21:04-04:00

The accompanying manual will become your treatment bible. It will guide you to the appropriate areas of low resistance for many common muscular pain conditions. As for the actual application, it couldn’t be easier. Place the unit’s Point Finder (PF) on the skin – either directly or through a loosely knit fabric. When the PF is near one an area of low resistance, the built-in detector will emit a high-pitched tone. Once the PF has found an area of low resistance, the green indicator light located on the back of the unit will turn off, and the tone will increase in pitch. Fast-acting relief begins by pushing and holding down the treatment button.
