I first used a TENS unit when I was visiting a chiropractor in Raleigh on a regular basis. He called it “e-stim” which I’m thinking refers to electrical stimulation. It’s more commonly known as a TENS unit which stands for:
This TENS unit from Auvon is designed to essentially do two things: 1 – overstimulate the nervous system to help drown out some of the nerve and muscle pain you may be experiencing, and 2 – trigger your body to release endorphins for a natural pain relief.
What makes this Auvon TENS standout is that it is also used as an EMS machine, or Electrical Muscle Stimulation. If you’re not looking for pain relief but specifically to enhance your muscles for rehab or growth, you can use alternate setting to stimulate your muscles.
The other selling point is that this is a four channel unit which means that you can apply electrodes to four different areas of the body simultaneously.
The real question, though, is does it work? I tend to get terrible nerve pain at the top of my spine. I’ve been massaging it regularly and stretching and still getting no relief. I tested the Auvon TENS unit on either side of the top of my spine, turned the machine on let it run for about 10 minutes at intensity level 3. Several days later and the pain is almost completely gone still.
If you’ve never seen a TENS unit in action or need a little better clarity as to what it can do and how safe electrical stimulation is, check out my video review of the Auvon TENS-EMS unit below.

I was happy to see this on YouTube because I’m trying to figure out this device. You help me get started with it, but I do have a request. The video the device is out of sight when you say, “And with this button you can do such and such.” And I find myself screaming at the video, “Which button I can’t see it.” Could you redo the video and show the buttons that you were pressing? I really hate to ask because I appreciate you doing the video and it helped a little, but it would help a whole lot more if I knew which button you were pressing. Thank you.
