Would recommend it for pain
The Dr. Ho's tens machine has helped me relieve pain in my arms, shoulders, and back. Must be done often. The foot pads have helped a great deal with plantar faciitis although you have to do it very often. I would recommend enhancement to the machine by having it plug in instead of battery use only,or perhaps larger batteries than the triple AAA being used now, and also making the foot pads larger so that it can also accomodate men or women with bigger shoe sizes. I wear a size 9 and it just fits me.
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

Luv this product!!
I am actually purchasing this one as a gift. I purchased mine two years ago at a trade show and love it. I have lent it out to family and friends when the have pain and this is why I am now going to give Dr Ho as a gift. This is a better price than I paid for mine and I also picked up extra pads as this is great pricing.
works great for me.
Recently purchased this unit and I'm glad as it works well to relax my tense shoulders and neck from each long day at the computer. Uses it on stiff lower back for about 30 min. after painting a room and it really loosened the muscles. Hope to hear that my sister's unit helps her severe headaches once she get's hers (she had to replace as first unit was broken on arrival). Hip bursitis is the next area I'll work on! Found using foot pads uncomfortable...stinging sensation but will call help line to find out proper use.

A must for weekend athletes
By Oldtimer Target
from Kincardine Ontario
Being a old-timer goalie and having had knee surgery on both knees this system enhanced the post physio-therapy sessions I needed. Identicaly to the TENS used by the therapists, I was able to continue my recovery at home after my sessions had expired. Months after surgery I am able to continue to play hockey thanks to Dr. Ho's system. Not only do I use it on my knees but also on my thighs, to stimulate the muscles and prevent cramps after playing hockey. I speculate that with this product I will play hockey well into my late 60's.

My aunt is the one who recommended it to me and she is in her 80"s. It is very simple to use and works extremely well. The foot pads are awesome!! The neck comforter is awesome! Can't say enough. Thank you Dr. Ho.

Not for everyone
By Living with pain
from Kingston, On
I bought it for my 80 year old mother who has tremendous muscle pain in her legs as well as restless leg syndrome. She said that after using it in various places for 2 hours she got some relief but that an hour later the pain came back. She said its a lot of effort for very minimal gain.
Bottom Line No, I would not recommend this to a friend
pleased with this product
I have used another pain relief system nuch like this one. However, after suffering chronic pain for years, most products become ineffective quickly. Dr. Ho's system offers multiple modes and levels that I have found most effective. No issues with the quality of the product. This is the most relief I have had in years(this includes going to physiothearapy). I WOULD DEFINATELY RECOMEND THIS PRODUCT.
Not that great
Not as good as how it was potraid on TV. It was a waste of money
Definitely helped me
When I first tried to use the Dr. Ho's Head to Toe Pain Relief it did not work. Upon trying another new battery, it worked. My right shoulder was extremely sore. I could not sleep on it and certain movements were very painful. I tried one treatment and my shoulder felt more relaxed and I was able to move it more freely. I slept better that night too. I will definitely continue to use it and would highly recommend it to all my friends.
I have used this for years and always liked it. When I saw that there was one with 4 pads I decided to get it. I am VERY happy with it. It worked like a charm on my shoulders, back and hamstring muscle. I tried the neck one but find it too hot and uncomfortable.I haven't tried the foot massage but may at a later date.This definitely beats "muscle relief" pills.My old Dr.Ho still works and I will take it when I travel.
