JZ is a very successful entrepreneur and he values the importance of health, fitness and exercise to be able to continue to function effectively in all areas of his life. Since 1990, as an entrepreneur, JZ who has chronic nerve related neck and back pain problems, immediately values the benefits of Twitch Obtaining Intramuscular Stimulation, even its most early stages of development using needles.
In 1990, Twitch Obtaining Intramuscular Stimulation was performed manually using dry needling with acupuncture needles which then progressed to automated twitch obtaining intramuscular stimulation (ATOIMS) using mono polar electromyographic (EMG) needles. This then developed into electrical twitch obtaining intramuscular stimulation (ETOIMS), still using mono polar EMG needles. Please visit [http://www.painfree-international.org] for the details of this developmental history. This is the web site of patient funded charitable foundation for disseminating information to patients suffering from myofascial pain and fibromyalgia. JZ is the President of Painfree-international Charitable Foundation.
In 2006, the medical technological development advanced and became state-of-the-art eToims using surface application method avoiding the need to puncture with needles. Nowadays, JZ’s pain condition is easier to control since the results are faster and more immediately effective as seen in the following videotape.
Thus, JZ continues to invest in his health by continuing to receive his weekly Electrical Twitch Obtaining Intramuscular Stimulation (eToims) sessions.
In eToims, motor points or neuromuscular junctions (acupuncture/trigger points) are electrically stimulated muscle by muscle through surface application. The motor point is searched for by repetitive stimulation of multiple areas in each muscle until the motor point is found for each muscle of importance. The subsequent stimulation of the motor point elicits strong force twitch contractions that aid in promoting circulation and also produces an internal stretch effect to the muscle fibers adjacent to the motor point.
