The products on their site are things that I would never normally try, so I love that they will push my boundaries. I’ve never even thought about e-stimulation before, so this was new to me!
The Shock Therapy Kit is a Pipedream product, and comes in a sturdy box featuring a woman using the kit. Needless to say, she definitely seems to be enjoying it! I had visions of me screaming rather than moaning as I electrocuted myself, but look, I’m still alive! Although L’s flatmates probably thought he was murdering me.
The Kit contains a digital power control unit, or a remote to you and me, 4 adhesive pads, a bi-polar lead wire, instruction manual and a free mask.
The remote only takes 2 AAA batteries, this put me at ease. If it only takes small batteries, it can’t hurt that much right?
How it works
The adhesive pads have a press stud like connection to the leads, and then it simply connects into the remote. The leads are long enough to allow you to not get tangled up and for your partner to control the remote if wanted.
The pads are extremely sticky! They are certainly not going to fall off whilst you are using them. You have to be careful not to touch them with your fingertips which can be quite tricky. They come with a piece of clear plastic over them to keep them sticky – so don’t lose these! I’m not sure how long the pads will last, I would say about 10 uses before you need some more as the stickiness seems to stick everywhere. You can purchase them separately for when they need replacing.
The instructions are quite clear, and show the different settings. What it doesn’t mention though is that there’s a body which shows up on the screen. If you skip the modes, it will highlight different body parts which I think has preset combinations to work best for the muscles. There are up to 100 stimulation combinations – so if I try to explain them all to you I could be here a while!
Each mode also has a timer, so after around 10 or 15 minutes, it will shut off.
The free mask was made of a cheap material, but hey, it was free! It did it’s job.
Firstly I tried the Shock Therapy on my back – I used the kneading mode:
‘Gradually releases neural or muscular pain by providing deep pressure-point stimulation’
I trusted L to place them on my back as a lay down expecting a lovely massage. Oh how wrong I was. When it says deep, it means it! For two AAA batteries, this has a heck of a lot of power! On lower settings it’s quite nice, but higher settings were immense. I think one thing the instruction manual is missing is directions on where to place the pads. If they were actually on the right points it would have been much nicer I’m sure!
I then decided to try them on my breasts with the tap setting:
‘Promotes blood circulation with a tapping, throbbing stimulation pattern’
I’m sure I read somewhere that electro-stimulation heightens collagen production and increases elasticity of breast tissues, worth a try right? I can’t really say it did much for my boobs in such a short time, apart from making them dance about everywhere, but it was quite relaxing.
I have just placed it on my back on modulation mode:
‘Releases fatigue and relaxes muscles by providing combination of different speeds and intensities’
I’m not sure about relaxing muscles, it’s making me shrug every time it pulses!
I honestly didn’t think this therapy would be any good, but if you know where to put the pads and easily work out the settings it’s great. It’s not just for those who like to inflict pain on others, it’s also great for muscle tensions or if you’ve had a hard gym work out.
I do like that you can put the 4 pads where ever you like on the body so they don’t all have to be in one place.
It is great for beginners as you can control the intensity and speed yourself very easily and when you change the treatment it will go back to the lowest settings. The LCD display makes it very easy to understand the different settings as you can watch the speed/intensity/mode and understand which buttons are affecting what.
I would definitely recommend this to those interested in e-stimulation – or if you just want a good massage!
