HOW DOES Q2 WORK?   

MECHANISM OF ACTION

1. Fundamental principle

Coldness and vibration with light massage through
patented thermal neurostimulation technology on temple area (temporalis).

2. Curing Effect

Stimulate active Myofascial Trigger Points (MTrPs)
which will decrease referred pains of headaches and migraine by desensitizing or modulating
the release of nociceptive and inflammatory mediators within deep temporal nerves of temporalis.

3. Complementary benefit

Migraine is considered vascular headaches, triggered by increased blood flow.
Some suffers have experienced increased efficacy of the therapy
by using PhysioCue Q1 Hypertension Therapy together.
