Avazzia devices stimulate the nervous system, just as TENS devices do, but that’s where the similarity ends. Avazzia technology works differently than most TENS devices, first by using microcurrent and second by targeting the C-fibers of the nervous system (most TENS devices work on the A- and B-fibers). C-fibers stimulate the production of neuropeptides and other regulatory peptides, which the body uses to heal itself.(1)
Because Avazzia features an interactive response, the microcurrent signal is constantly being adjusted to changes in tissue characteristics. Thus the body doesn’t “habituate” or “accommodate” the microcurrent signal. The device measures tissue response and adjusts the microcurrent signal. In surveys, users report that using Avazzia treatment lessens pain, improves sleep and dramatically increases users’ ability to return to daily activities.
What Is TENS?
TENS units — Transcutaneous Electrical Nerve Stimulation — use electrical currents passed through the skin to stimulate nerves. TENS units use a variety of power sources — some are plugged into the wall, use 9V batteries or other batteries. TENS also use a range of methods to conduct current through the skin including onboard electrodes or lead wires connected to adhesive pads, masks, wraps and other fabric-like options
Avazzia uses two AA batteries and all of the above methods to conduct microcurrent to the patient — onboard electrodes, lead wires with pads or accessories such as Y-electrode and pencil electrode, and fabric-like options including wraps, gloves and socks. Avazzia’s proprietary software and microchips mean a better engineered, more effective treatment method than a traditional TENS.
Avazzia: Life Without Pain
- Avazzia is FDA-cleared for the symptomatic relief and management of chronic, intractable pain and adjunctive treatment in the management of post-surgical and post-traumatic pain. It is available by prescription only.
- Avazzia devices work to relieve pain – chronic and acute – without drugs or surgery. People have used it for chronic back pain; fibromyalgia; pain associated with sports such as foot, tendon and calf pain; plantar fasciitis and heel spurs; pain connected with neuropathy, especially for diabetics; aches and pains caused by repetitive injuries, such as carpal tunnel syndrome; pain associated with physical therapy, especially after surgery for knee or hip replacement; and back pain associated with travel or work.
- Avazzia’s proprietary interactive technology is designed to adapt to each person’s body conditions. The interactive function of Avazzia devices, which sets it apart from other TENS units on the market, adjusts the microcurrent used to stimulate endorphin production.(1)
- The body has an inherent capability of maintaining its own health and function and communications via microcurrents.(2) Over the centuries, Western medicine has focused on pharmaceutical cures for illness and damaged tissue. Avazzia takes technology that has been known for decades and brings it into the 21st century.
“I’ve had lower back pain for years. I have had the opportunity to receive a non-invasive microcurrent session with Dr. Charlene, and I have no back pain. I no longer wake up because of back pain like I used to, and actually, the pain I had in my knees is also diminished as well.

After spending eight hours a day using a computer mouse, I began suffering from severe numbness in my right hand and arm. I was introduced to the Avazzia device during a biofeedback session with Dr. Charlene and began seeing improvement almost immediately.
Within six months I was totally symptom-free and able to avoid surgery (which I was told was my other option). Since then I have used the device to relieve the chronic neck and shoulder pain that has seriously impacted quality of life for my entire adult life. Nothing I’ve tried before has been as effective.
