Transcutaneous electrical nerve stimulation (TENS) is a form of electroanalgesia, which diminishes painful sensations (Sluka and Walsh, 2003; Vance et al., 2014) by activating either large (conventional TENS) or small (intense TENS) diameter afferents to block peripheral nerves associated with pain (segmental and extra-segmental analgesia respectively) (Jones, 2009).

This form of electroanalgesia also interacts with the cardiovascular system, particularly through of autonomic nervous system (ANS) (Stein, Dal Lago, Ferreira, Casali, & Plentz, 2011; Vieira et al., 2012; Franco et al., 2014).
Transcranial electrotherapy (TCET), neuroelectric therapy (NET), alpha sleep, electroanalgesia, electronarcosis and the original electrosleep just a few of the more common terms that have referred to the same therapy.
