How To Use Zarifa For Pain Management | Zarifa USA


Zarifa USA specializes in Our IQ TENS / EMS Units. They are Class II medical devices that are approved and licensed by the US Food and Drug Administration. Side effects entailed to a TENS unit are very rare; however, our unique devices cannot be used by any individual impacted by the following medical conditions.

Pacemaker and Severe Heart Disorders

It is possible that our TENS therapy devices can interfere with implanted medical devices. Avoid our TENS unit if you have a pacemaker or heart disease. The electrical currents generated by the TENS unit can interfere with the functionality of your pacemaker. While some pacemakers are made safe with TENS therapy, it is best to consult your doctor before use.


Pregnant Women or Women who think they are pregnant should avoid using our TENS unit. The electrotherapy associated with the device can have negative effects on the unborn child.

Avoid TENS therapy in the first and second trimester. Also, never place the pads above the uterus. Ultimately consult with your doctor before use.


Epilepsy and Seizures

Although inconclusive the research does indicate the possibility that electrotherapy could trigger epileptic episodes and seizures. Erring on the side of caution Zarifa USA recommends you do not use our TENS unit if you suffer from Epilepsy and Seizures.

Important: Never place Pads or accessories directly over you heart of the temple region on either side of your head. For more information consult with your doctor before using our device.

Extending the life of your electrodes:

  • Attach your electrodes to pads before you remove the plastic protector cover and before you place it on your body.
  • Don’t touch the gel on the pads as this will reduce the life of your pads. Your pads are reusable so please don’t throw them away after use. Before you place your pads on the area to be treated put a few drops of water on the pads to improve adhesiveness to your skin.

  • Before applying the gel pads, put a few drops of water on your fingers and rub them on both pads. This will help the gel pads maintain their adhesiveness.
  • When you finish using the device, turn it off.
  • Take off the gel pads.
  • Place the protective films back on the gel pads or place them on the pad holder.
  • Take the electrode wires out from the device and place back in the box until next use.

What are Acupuncture Treatment Points?

In acupuncture, a variety of styles and techniques are taught around the world. The Acupuncture Treatment Points targets conditions such as abdominal pain, arthritis, dizziness, insomnia, spasm, and more.

As a general rule, the choice of treatment points is based on the various actions and uses of different points. This can be utilized to decrease inflammation, manage specific conditions, or treat local pain.
