But with 12 to choose from, we wanted to would provide you with a rundown of each mode, and what each is designed to do.
Mode 1 - Pushing
This is the push and release setting
which mimics the sensation of a gentle
massage. This is most popular for relieving tension
caused by general aches and pains

Inspired by the sensation
achieved in Chinese pressure point science,
this mode is focused on relieving acute pain around the
body. It is particularly effective at alleviating muscular
and joint pain.
Mode 3 - Tapping
This is a deep tissue massage mode
giving off a solid tap sensation which is useful
for relieving pain, loosing adhesion and improving
micro-circulation. It is generally used at a lower intensity
level to avoid muscle overstimulation
Mode 4 - Cupping
The cupping mode is a drawing up
pulse which will pull the muscle and release
to imitate the sensation of Chinese cupping massage.

area and is useful for relaxing muscles and cramps,
particularly in the upper back area.
Mode 5 - Foot Massage
This mode is to be used in
conjunction with the PainPod massage shoes,
gloves and socks. When applied to the feet and hands,
the reflex areas are stimulated which can then transfer
relation and pain relief to various parts of the body
through verve conduction. This mode promotes overall
health in addition to providing a relaxing foot or hand

building to a more drawn out and easing
vibration, this is a soothing massage sensation which is
ideal for easing joints and other cramped areas. Using
this mode on certain pressure points also promotes blood

similar to traditional massage, this is a mode which
cycles through sensations and alternates pulse
intensities from light to heavy.
Mode 11 - Calorie Consumption
This is passive exercise
mode which cycles through a number of
sensations including toning movements to simulate
the feeling of muscle exertion without inducing fatigue. Used in
conjunction with regular exercise or simple movement,
this mode helps the body stay healthier and assists in
speeding up the calorie loss process.
Mode 12 - Tapping and Kneading Combination
popular massage modes are combined and
alternate intermittently for effective pain relief through
For best results, we suggest that you initially experiment using each of the modes. The most appropriate mode or combination to use is whichever ones produce the most desirable sensations or greatest levels of comfort.
The ‘Intensity’ setting should be at a level where you can feel some muscular vibration and involuntary muscle movements. The sensation should be strong yet comfortable and should not be painful.
