Mini Massager FAQ
How does the Mini Massager work?
The Mini Massager sends various patterns of electronic impulses to your muscles through the massage pads. Your muscles respond to the impulses by contracting and relaxing rhythmically. The contracting and relaxing of your muscles produces soothing massage sensations that are similar to that given by a massage specialist.
What kind of technology does Mini Massager use?
The Mini Massager uses innovation of Human Bio-electric Emulation technology. There are other electronic massagers out in the market that use similar technology, but most of them only provide one “tapping” sensation. Your body will get accustomed to that one particular sensation and it will eventually stop responding to it. On the other hand, the Mini Massager produces various kinds of massage sensations in a random fashion so that your muscles are always in for a surprise every time you use it.
How to take care of the massage pads?
Before applying massage pads, clean your skin first if you use skin cream or if your skin is dirty. If the pads become dirty, you can wash them using clear water or rubbing alcohol. Depending on frequency of use, the pads can last from one month to several months. If you find the pads lose their adhesiveness and it is very difficult to make them adhesive again by applying drops of clear water, or if the pads are worn out, you need to change the pads. Extra massage pads can be ordered from our online store.
How do I change the pads?
To change the pads, just unsnap the button on the back of the pads and clip on the new pads. Once you put a new set of pads on. Remove the old pads and replace with new pads to ensure maximum effectiveness. Also, remember to place the pads back into the storage tray right after each use to prevent the pads from drying up and picking up dirt.
The massage pads are not sticking, what should I do?
Make sure that the protective plastic covering the massage pads have been removed. The massage pads are moisture activated. Before each use, dip your fingers into a small amount of water and rub the water onto each pad. Apply the pads immediately to your skin when they are still wet.
Why I feel stinging sensations from the pads sometimes?
The pads must be moist and sticky to work. Pads that are not moist enough will produce a weak and stinging sensation. Before each use dip your finger into water and rub the water onto the massage pads. Apply the pads immediately to your skin when they are still wet. Make sure that the pads are making full and firm contact with the skin. Worn out pads may also cause a stinging sensation. Replace the pads as needed.
I can barely feel anything from the pads, what is wrong?
Check the wire connection to the pads and make sure the plug is securely plugged. Make sure the batteries are in good condition. Check the pads are moist and not worn out. Turn the switch off then turn on again. Please make sure both pads attach on same person’s body in order to feel the sensation.
I have a pacemaker, is this instrument safe for me to use?
No, unfortunately, the unit is not recommended to be used by those with a pacemaker. If you have a heart condition but not wearing a heart pace maker, then it is generally safe for you to use it but one must ALWAYS check first with his or her physician prior to use.
Where can I apply the pads?
Answer: Generally, you can apply pads to anywhere except heart and brain area. We recommend some common massage points in the manual accompanying Mini Massager for most effective relaxation on your body.
How long can I use the Mini Massager?
You can use it as often as you like. You can use it from 20 to 60 minutes each time, 2 to 3 times per day for better and faster improvement. There are NO chemicals or drugs involved. It is very safe for long term use.
Do I need to ask my doctor first about using this device?
The Mini Massager is designed for your personal use and is not intended to replace any health professional care. When in doubt, we recommend that you consult with your doctor first.
