“Almost every woman gets period pains – for some, they are a minor inconvenience while for others, they can have a huge impact on quality of life. Lifestyle changes can help but aren’t always enough. For many women, painkillers or hormonal treatments can offer relief, but for a non-drug alternative.” Dr. Sarah Jarvis, GP and Medical Broadcaster.
What does Livia look like?
Livia is a portable fashion-forward device. It’s easy to use and can be worn discreetly under your clothes, so it’s not something that you can only wear inside your home. Livia is designed with a long-life rechargeable battery, so it’s always ready when you need it. It also makes the device reusable for many years.
How does it work?
Livia’s patented SmartWave™ technology uses electric micro-pulses to tap into the body’s natural pain defenses to mask the feeling of menstrual pain. The technology behind Livia is based on the “Gate Control Theory” and works by transmitting a very unique pulse to keep the nerves “busy.” When the nerves are stimulated, the nerve gate is closed, preventing pain signals from reaching the brain and being felt.
1. Simply clip Livia to your waistband. Once in place, simply attach the electrode gel pads to your lower abdomen.
2. Turn Livia on and you’ll notice it gets to work immediately, stopping pain in its tracks. You can adjust the pulses to your preferred strength and intensity with the plus and minus buttons.
Would I still need to take painkillers?
Nope! Livia exists to provide drug-free relief from menstrual pains. It relies on nerve stimulation to remove the need for painkillers.
Are there any side-effects from Livia?
There are no side-effects to using Livia. None. What are you waiting for?
