What is a Pulse: Pulse Science Handbook

In science, a pulse is a sudden, brief release of energy commonly found in light, sound and electrical signals.

In science, a pulse is a sudden, brief release of energy commonly found in light, sound and electrical signals. This unique form of energy not only plays a key role in communications and medical imaging technology but also demonstrates its unique application in massage therapy.

In the Handbook of Pulse Science, we will explore the basic theory of pulses, as well as the potential benefits of such applications to the body, such as relieving muscle tension and improving circulation.

What is a Pulse?

Pulse massage technology is a technique that uses specific frequencies and amplitudes of fine currents to simulate the transmission of human neural electrical signals for massage stimulation. By transmitting fine currents to electrode pads, it can provide relaxation, relieve muscle tension, and promote blood circulation.

We know that the heart sends blood to every corner of the body through periodic contraction and relaxation, which is the foundation of our life. Massage pulses are like the heartbeat of muscles, constantly stretching and contracting them, "delivering" a comfortable feeling to them. This process is like the rhythm of life, making the body muscles no longer stiff and full of vitality.

What are Low-frequency and Intermediate-Frequency Therapy Devices?

A pulse (analogous to a heartbeat) that repeats 100 times per second is called a 100Hz pulse. According to the number of times, the pulse repeats per second, it can be divided into low-frequency pulse therapy devices and intermediate-frequency pulse therapy devices.

In the medical field, they are widely used to treat the following diseases:

  1. Pain management: including chronic pain (such as arthritis and neuralgia, myalgia) and acute pain (such as postoperative pain and sports injuries).
  2. Rehabilitation treatment: including rehabilitation training and motor recovery, such as restoring function after surgery, treating muscle atrophy, etc.
  3. Promote blood circulation: can help improve blood circulation, and help reduce swelling and inflammation.

What are Low-frequency Sounds?

Frequency less than 1000Hz. Based on the principles of traditional Chinese medicine meridian theory and electrical stimulation theory, it simulates stimulation behaviors such as traditional Chinese medicine massage, tapping, and acupuncture. It has a good auxiliary treatment effect on pain and arthritis, cervical spondylosis, back pain, muscle soreness, and other symptoms. Low-frequency treatment often requires a period of accumulation to manifest, and the stimulation may be strong.

Intermediate Frequency Therapy Device

intermediate frequency mostly between 2000~8000Hz. Intermediate-frequency electrical stimulation can produce deeper penetration, and stimulate nerves and muscles more deeply, so it is often used for the management of deep pain, such as bone pain, deep tissue pain, etc. Compared with low-frequency treatment, intermediate-frequency treatment usually produces a faster pain relief effect and may feel more comfortable.

How to Use Pulse?

Due to the fact that the electrode pads of pulse technology need to be used in close contact with the skin if the fit is not good or the operation is improper, there will be a slight needle-pricking sensation on the epidermis during use.


Adjust the pulse intensity appropriately: Pulse massagers usually have adjustable pulse intensity settings. At first, choose a lower intensity setting and gradually increase it to find your comfort level. Avoid choosing an intensity that is too high to avoid discomfort.

Use conductive gel: Before placing the electrode pads on the skin, a layer of conductive gel can be applied between the electrode pads and the skin. The conductive gel can enhance the massage effect while reducing the tingling sensation.

Keep your skin clean and moisturized: Make sure to clean your skin before and after using the pulse massager and keep it moisturized. Dry skin may increase discomfort. You can wash your skin with clean water and apply appropriate moisturizing products if needed.

Do not overuse: Follow the instructions and recommendations for using the pulse massager. Do not overuse or use it continuously in the same area for too long to avoid skin sensitivity or irritation.

Why Can it Be Applied to the Field of Massage?

The research and clinical trials of many authoritative institutions such as the US Pain Medicine Association, the United Kingdom Pain Medicine Association, the Chinese Pain Medicine Association, The Lancet, and SCI have shown the potential of pulse therapy devices in pain management, sports rehabilitation, fracture healing, neurological diseases, and rehabilitation care.

Among them, In the 1960s, pulse therapy devices appeared. In health and rehabilitation, pulse therapy devices are mainly used to help relieve chronic pain, such as back pain, neck pain, or joint pain. This is similar to the results achieved by traditional massage, so pulse technology can also be applied to the massage field with significant effects and many other benefits.

What are the Benefits For the Body?

  • Relaxing muscles: Pulse massage techniques can relieve muscle tension and fatigue and promote body relaxation.
  • Promote blood circulation: By stimulating blood vessels and blood flow, pulse massage techniques can increase blood circulation and provide adequate oxygen and nutrient supply.
  • Relieve pain: Pulse massage technology can reduce pain by stimulating nerve endings and interfering with the transmission of pain signals.
  • Improves muscle recovery: Pulse massage techniques help reduce muscle pain and inflammation and promote recovery and repair of muscle injuries.
  • Improve mental state: Pulse massage can also promote physical and mental relaxation, and relieve stress and anxiety.

What are the Differences From Traditional Massage?

Deep relief: Pulse massage technology can penetrate deeper into muscle tissue through pulse stimulation, relieve tense muscles, promote blood circulation and lymphatic flow, and reduce muscle pain and stiffness.

Automatic control: Pulse massage technology can automatically control the frequency, intensity, and duration of massage through preset programs or modes, making the experience more consistent and controllable.

Targeted Therapy: Pulse massage techniques can be tailored to individual needs and health concerns to treat specific body parts or problem areas.

Versatility: Pulse massage technology can be combined with other massage techniques (such as vibration, heating, or infrared irradiation) to provide a more comprehensive massage experience and effect.

How to Use a Pulse Massager Correctly?

The steps for using pulse massage products correctly include:

  1. Read the product manual carefully: understand the characteristics, functions, and usage of the product.
