The Acuscope delivers a level of electricity that is below the threshold of perception.  In other words, you most likely will only feel the smooth metal probes and/or plates touching your skin.  Some patients will feel a tiny pulse, vibration, or an occasional gentle prickling sensation.  Have no concern.  If there is ANY discomfort whatsoever, simply mention it to your Acuscope Operator and the settings will be reduced to insure your comfort.  It is not best for you to “grin and bear it.”   In fact, it is not necessary to feel the current at all.

During treatment, it is most likely that you will feel nothing but relief.  Many people fall sleep during certain types of treatment procedures.  Most patients report only the sensations of general relaxation, warmth and soothing release in the area being treated.
