The metal tip is roughly the same size as the tip of a ballpoint pen, and is rounded at the tip for a gentle application. When you treat yourself with the Dolphin Neurostim, press the metal tip gently against your skin to administer the microcurrent into your soft tissue.
When the treatment button is pressed, it emits the flow of DC microcurrent from the unit and through the metal tip.
On/Off Switch and Intensity Dial
This feature serves dual purposes. First, the dial turns the unit off and on (indicated by the unit emitting a high pitched tone). Second, it increases or decreases the intensity of the microcurrent stimulation. For example: if you wanted to increase the intensity, you would scroll up (or forward), and if you wanted to decrease it, you would scroll down (or backward). Stimulation is largely a matter of personal comfort, but we recommend that you start low and increase as needed.
Battery Test Button
The battery test button lets you know if your unit’s batter is working properly, or needs to be replaced. With unit on, press down on this button to get an indication of the battery strength. If the light does not illuminate brightly, then that means you need to replace the battery.
This light is activated when the Dolphin Neurostim™ unit is switched on and is used to indicate when you have found a treatment point. When you’re using the unit and the light flickers off, that means that a point has been located.
The Dolphin Neurostim™ produces electrical current and therefore, human skin must be touching ground plate, during point location and stimulation. The Dolphin Neurostim™ is designed to be held like a pen with thumb firmly placed on ground plate and index/middle finger wrapped around and gripping top of unit.
The Sensitivity Dial assists in accurate point location. The Dolphin Neurostim™ locates trigger points by measuring changes in skin resistance, which is influenced by moisture. Normal skin should have the dial pointing upwards between 3-4 (12 o’clock).
Polarity Switch (Tonify (+), Disperse (-), Biphasic (+/-))
The polarity switch is found at the bottom/back of unit. Negative (-) is like applying an ice pack, positive (+) is like applying a heat pack. The default setting is negative for most treatment points. Biphasic (+/-) is used for balancing the nervous system.
The Dolphin Neurostim™ is optimally powered by Duracell 9V.

Breakthrough in Chronic Pain Treatment: Dolphin Neurostim
The Dolphin Neurostim is the world’s first hybrid device specifically designed for the treatment of chronic/acute soft tissue pain. The Dolphin is not only safe, but very easy to use. It applies brief, concentrated microcurrent impulses to specific treatment points that naturally reduces nervous system STRESS and cortisol, relaxing muscle tone and releasing the body’s natural pain killers, endorphins. This multi-pronged effect on the body’s nervous, muscular and endocrine systems is the reason why the Dolphin Neurostim works so fast and effectively with many chronic pain conditions.
Dolphin was born out of neurology endorphin research of the 1980’s, which was the first time science recognized how special types of DC electro currents can positively influence the human body. Direct Current (DC-used in MPS) flows in one direction, is found in nature and “runs” your heart and nervous system. Alternating Current (AC) has a back and forth flow of current, and powers most of our household appliances and traditional TENS (Transcutaneous Electro Nerve Stimulator) devices. AC stimulation is man-made and is not found in nature.
Dolphin Neurostim produces microcurrent stimulation, thousands of times less in strength than traditional TENS devices, and delivered in a manner to “resonate” with the nervous system and influence dramatic cellular changes in organs, tissues and fascia. For this the Dolphin has been called “microcurrent biostimulation” because of its reported benefits on cellular physiology and growth.
