TENS History

TENS (Transcutaneous Electrical Nerve Stimulation) therapy is safe, drug-free, and non-invasive, but treatments have been expensive, time-consuming, and primarily available through a healthcare professional…until the AuraWave™.


Over 2,000 Years Ago

Ancient Greeks would stand on electric eels after they had discovered that the current helped to alleviate pain.

Over 250 Years Ago

Benjamin Franklin recommended using electricity for pain relief.

Over 30 Years Ago

A 1970's breakthrough led to the invention of the first TENS (Transcutaneous Electrical Nerve Stimulation) machine for controlled electrotherapy.

Over the Years

In recent years, TENS has become one of the most widely-used forms of pain management, used by thousands of doctors, chiropractors, and physical therapists across the country for treating musculoskeletal pain – both chronic and acute.
