Mode & Modality Descriptions

Modes/Modalities
1-Kneading

Simulates the thumbs fingers and palms of a real massage therapist. The sensation should feel like a vibration. Focuses in on hypertension and stress and helps to break that down returning full range of motion and flexibility.

Used in treatment of 75 conditions.

Modes/Modalities
2-Accupuncture-Accupressure

A much more rapid and focused pulse that focuses in on any knot or adhesion in the body. It puts enough pressure on it to break it down and release any acidic (lactic) content within. Very similar to Chinese acupuncture.

Used in treatment of 1 conditions.

Modes/Modalities
3-Tapping

A deep tissue massage mode giving a solid tap sensation. By tapping the muscle you are increasing the bodies natural blood flow and oxygen supply to targeted area. This also helps flush any inflammation or swelling in that pin-pointed target area. ​

Used in treatment of 1 conditions.

Modes/Modalities
4-Cupping

A muscular mode modelled on Chinese cupping massage, it is a drawing up pulse which will pull up the muscle and release. Drawing blood and toxins to the surface and useful for relaxing muscles and cramps. Very good for the thoracic area (upper back)

Used in treatment of 2 conditions.

Modes/Modalities
5-Scraping

A muscular mode giving a short pulse, particularly effective on the lumbar area (lower back). Used for releasing muscle tension and assisting in fatigue and relaxation.

Used in treatment of 1 conditions.

Modes/Modalities
6- Shuffle

This is a combination of modes 1,4,5. This is a great mode to use when cooling down from an exercise.

7- Elbow Pressing

This mode simulates the massage therapist by pressing on the body with the elbow. It is designed to relieve muscular spasm pains on the shoulder and back.

Modes/Modalities
8- Trigger Point

This is simulating a massage therapist by pressing the trigger points along meridians with fingertips. It is used to relieve fatigue, keep healthy and energetic, and to relax tendons.

Used in treatment of 1 conditions.

Modes/Modalities
9- Reflexology

This is the mode used in conjunction with the AcuSlippers, AcuGloves and AcuSocks. Reflex areas on the feet/hands are stimulated and, through nerve conduction, then stimulate and relax various parts of the body, promoting overall health and wellbeing while providing a relaxing foot and hand massage.

Used in treatment of 3 conditions.

Modes/Modalities
10- Auricular Therapy

This mode is also known as “alpha stim” or “microcurrent”. When used properly you should use the earflap attachment. It works 2 ways. By simulating an alpha wave in the brain it has been known to help sleep patterns, behavior, and endorphin release. Also, it will relax the suboccipital muscles and vasodilate, helping with migraines and headaches.

Used in treatment of 8 conditions.

Modes/Modalities
11-Micro Current (A)

These two modes are similar but different in frequency. Micro Current is well known as “human bioelectricity”. This mode is to prevent and treat diseases by using the current to increase microcirculation to the area. This can help with swelling, joint relief, muscle pain relief, and performance.

Used in treatment of 3 conditions.

Modes/Modalities
12-Micro Current (B)

These two modes are similar but different in frequency. Micro Current is well known as “human bioelectricity”. This mode is to prevent and treat diseases by using the current to increase microcirculation to the area. This can help with swelling, joint relief, muscle pain relief, and performance.

Used in treatment of 2 conditions.

Modes/Modalities
13-Muscular Warm Up

This mode is designed to increase the temperature of muscle ligaments and joints. It can extend the range and ability of joints and ligaments, also can reduce muscle viscosity and improve muscular contraction and flexibility. Muscular warm-up is a key to improve the quality of training and prevent injury of sports.

Used in treatment of 3 conditions.

Modes/Modalities
14: Muscular Reinforcement:

This mode can improve the quality of training, help to prevent sports injuries, and strengthen the muscle. It can also be used to provide a suitable physical exercise which can accelerate the blood circulation of injured or atrophic muscle tissues and promote the protein synthesis so as to accelerate the rehabilitation of muscular atrophy.

Used in treatment of 1 conditions.

Modes/Modalities
15-Muscular Relaxation

This mode is designed to stimulate muscles, release tension and promote overall well being through simulating an all-embracing massage.

Used in treatment of 1 conditions.

Modes/Modalities
16-Contract and Hold

This mode is the longest contraction on the machine. It is designed to simulate a flex movement to help build muscle tissue.

Used in treatment of 1 conditions.

Modes/Modalities
17-Ramping wave

This mode is designed to start out with number 3, tapping. It will get faster and deeper into the belly of the muscle as it continues until it goes to a fully facilitated contraction. Then it will allow the muscle to release. This has been used to increase endurance and build fatigue resistance.

Used in treatment of 1 conditions.

Modes/Modalities
18-Tapping and kneading

A mixture of the fast and slow contractions.

Used in treatment of 1 conditions.
