Why the Circulation Promoter is an Excellent Foot & Leg Massager for Pain Sufferers

Why the Circulation Promoter is an Excellent Foot & Leg Massager for Pain Sufferers
May 17 2021

Looking for a device that promotes circulation in the feet and legs? You’ve come to the right place! But what is circulation anyway and why does a lack of proper circulation cause pain and discomfort? Let’s get a refresh on circulation to understand this better.




What is circulation and why is it important?

The circulatory system is comprised of the heart, lungs and blood vessels. They work together in the system to deliver blood, oxygen and nutrients throughout the body to the various tissues. In the process of circulation, arteries carry oxygen-rich blood away from the heart to tissues such as the muscles, while veins carry oxygen-poor blood back to the heart to start the cycle over.

Circulation is important to help maintain healthy blood, nutrient and oxygen flow throughout the body, which allows the heart, muscles and other tissues to function as they should — so you can do all the things you love to do and live the life you want to live. 

Considering the importance of proper circulation, addressing a lack of circulation and the pain associated with it is crucial. Not only is proper circulation important for one’s overall health and vitality, but the pain associated with poor circulation can make many aspects of life more difficult. From running errands to accomplishing your goals, pain in the feet and legs from poor circulation can get in the way, and it’s unfortunately a very common ailment.



Here’s where the Circulation Promoter comes in.

DR-HO’S Circulation Promoter stimulates muscles and nerves to temporarily increase local circulation and temporarily relieve pain in the legs and feet, where many experience a lack of proper circulation and thus pain and discomfort.

The Circulation Promoter is powered by DR-HO’S Pain Therapy System; it's a TENS and EMS device with AMP (Auto Modulated Pulse) technology that works to stimulate both the nervous and muscle fibres in the sole of the feet. Not only do these technologies work together to make the device effective, but they also offer a reliable way to find meaningful, temporary pain relief. This is how the technologies work together in the device:


TENS: Stimulates the nerves. 

Transcutaneous Electrical Nerve Stimulation (TENS) conducts safe, gentle electrical currents that reach the body through adhesive body pads or through footpads (as seen in the Circulation Promoter). By placing the feet on the footpads, electrical stimulations travel through nerve fibres in the nervous system in order to temporarily reduce pain signals from reaching the brain. 


EMS: Stimulates the muscles.

Electrical Muscle Stimulation (EMS) is used to massage and stimulate healthy muscles to improve and facilitate muscle performance. Once the user places their feet on the foot pads, EMS works to contract and release muscles in the feet and legs. This deep, penetrating massage helps temporarily increase local circulation and soothe sore, achy muscles at the same time. 


AMP Technology: Keeps the stimulations effective. 

Most TENS machines offer a single mode of stimulation which may work at first, but eventually, the body may adapt to same TENS stimulation over time. The Circulation Promoter utilizes AMP (Auto Modulated Pulse) technology and delivers over 300 different stimulations that vary in wave patterns, frequencies, and rest periods.

By automatically changing the stimulations, the body is less likely to adapt. DR-HO'S AMP technology is the key differentiating factor between DR-HO'S pain relief products and other TENS devices on the market.




How does the Circulation Promoter help temporarily increase local circulation?

DR-HO'S Circulation Promoter is recommended for the following uses:

  • To be used for temporary relief of pain associated with sore and aching muscles in the legs and feet due to strain from exercise or normal household work activities.
  • To be used for symptomatic relief and management of chronic, intractable pain and relief of pain associated with arthritis.
  • To stimulate healthy muscles to improve and facilitate muscle performance.
  • To temporarily increase local blood circulation in healthy muscles.

The Circulation Promoter is a fully portable, battery-powered device that you can use from the comfort of home, or anywhere else. You don't need to go to a doctor's office to use the device — get the temporary relief you’re looking for whenever and wherever you need it.
