Period Pain Relief Machine - Revolutionising Menstrual Comfort in Australia

Table of Contents


Menstrual pain is a common discomfort experienced by individuals who menstruate. While some may experience mild discomfort, others face severe pain that can affect their daily life. Enter period pain relief machines, which are emerging as a revolutionary solution to menstrual discomfort.

What Are Period Pain Relief Machines?

Period pain relief machines are devices designed to alleviate menstrual cramps and discomfort. These machines utilise various methods such as heat therapy, electrical stimulation (TENS) and vibration to target pain.

There are different types of period pain relief machines, each working in its unique way to offer relief. Some utilise heat to relax muscles, while others employ gentle electrical pulses to interfere with pain signals sent to the brain.

What Machines Help with Period Pain?

A range of different machines can be used for period pain relief. We have summarised those below with a comparison table under that.

TENS Machines

Transcutaneous Electrical Nerve Stimulation (TENS) machines use electrical currents to relieve pain. By placing electrodes near the area of discomfort, TENS machines help to alleviate menstrual pain. The second you stop using them though, the pain relief stops.

Heat Therapy Machines

Heat has been a long-standing remedy for menstrual discomfort. Heat therapy machines generate warmth to soothe and relax the muscles, effectively reducing period pain. The relief from this can be lasting after the period pain relief device is taken off. This is what our product Invisiwarm offers (read more here if interested).

Vibration/massage Therapy Machines

Utilising gentle vibrations, these machines work to alleviate pain by disrupting pain signals sent to the brain and helping to relax the pelvic muscles. They also distract you mentally, allowing you to take your mind off the pain. As far as we are aware, there are no pure 'vibration/massage' devices on the market.

Combination Machines (Heat and Massage)

Some devices combine heat with massage features to target menstrual pain effectively. The heat helps to relax the muscles, while the massage alleviates tension. While our current Invisiwarm model does not have this, we are currently trialing a new model with it - so if you would like this, send us a message when you have ordered and we will send you the version with massage (same price).

Dual Action Period Pain Relief Machine (Heat, Massage and TENS)

The Invisiwarm TENS machine combines heat and TENS therapy (which feels like a massage) for a dual-action approach to period pain relief. This provides all three forms of relief in one! The main difference is the heat does not get as hot as Invisiwarm (as it is stuck to the skin by gel pads, the temperature is limited to 45 degrees maximum) and the area of heat is smaller. But it also includes TENS which helps relieve period pain through dual action.

Choosing the Best Period Pain Relief Machine

Selecting the right period pain relief machine for your specific needs is crucial for effective management of menstrual discomfort. Here are some key factors to consider:

  • Functionality: Different machines offer different functionalities such as heat, massage, or TENS. Consider what type of relief works best for you.
  • Portability: A portable device will allow you to use it on the go, providing you with relief wherever you are.
  • Battery Life: Check the battery life of the machine, especially if you intend to use it throughout the day.
  • Price: Consider your budget. However, it’s important to note that sometimes spending a little more can offer better relief and a more durable device.
