Dolphin Neurostim FAQ

The battery-operated Dolphin Neurostim works by sending an electrical impulse to locate, then stimulate both the nerve and acupuncture points connected to a disorder. When properly stimulated, these points relax muscles, improve circulation, and trigger the release of beta-endorphins – the body’s own painkillers. Because of its ability to activate the body’s natural healing and pain relieving response, our units have become a preferred alternative to pharmaceuticals.
Nerve or Trigger/Motor points are tiny, tight bundles of nerve endings located throughout our muscles. They become tender when a muscle or a related muscle is injured. These points on the skin display a lowered electrical resistance than the surrounding tissue, and can be precisely identified and stimulated with the Dolphin Neurostim. Traditional acupuncture points lie within a system of bio-energetic pathways called meridians. While these points are connected to our internal organs and body tissues, they’re often located in areas with no anatomical relationship to the injury. Acupuncture points will also manifest the same electrical characteristics that our units are designed to detect with great accuracy. As many of these acupuncture points are nerve points, and vice versa, the most successful results follow treatment which combines acupuncture and trigger point therapies. This combination produces a synergistic pain relief that goes beyond conventional treatment.
With the Dolphin Neurostim, there’s no need to suffer until the next therapy treatment. 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 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. You’ll be amazed at how quickly you’ll learn to locate and stimulate the correct points for fast, effective results.
The manual that accompanies the Dolphin Neurostim will become your treatment bible. It will guide you to the appropriate stimulation points for over 100 different pain disorders. 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 of the points (within 0.5 mm), the built-in detector will emit a high-pitched tone. Once the PF has found the exact point, 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. During treatment, when the Dolphin Neurostim locates and stimulates the right point, it will produce a strong, tingling sensation known as “De Chi.” Hypersensitive points will feel “hot” or “needle-like.” Ride the sensation by taking long, deep breaths; it will soon ease into warm wave of relief and well being.
All points within sight are easily treated with our hand-held units. For those harder-to- reach areas, just attach the optional extension probe to the Dolphin Neurostim. You’ll have no problem stimulating points on your own back and neck.
We think you’ll find that both our self-help unit and our systematic approach to pain management are extremely user-friendly.

Like exercise or massage, treatment with the Dolphin Neurostim releases the bio-chemicals responsible for that warm, euphoric feeling known as “runner’s high.” Some patients also experience mild stiffness, which is a positive signal that the muscles are realigning, and the body is being brought back into balance.
Yes, with certain conditions, you can overdo it. For instance, there are certain therapies which will advise against treating over 20pts on the first application.

The amount or length of a treatment depends on the severity of the condition.

The Dolphin Neurostim is classified as a “modified” T.E.N.S., which means it can offer a range of benefits not possible with conventional T.E.N.S. equipment. As the differences between conventional and modified T.E.N.S. are too lengthy to answer in a few lines, we’ve developed an effectiveness comparison chart.
Most private health plans, WISB, and the DVA will cover T.E.N.S. devices. In most cases, all that is needed is a Medical Doctor’s recommendation. For more information, call your insurance company and inquire if you have coverage for T.E.N.S. units.
