What does Flow feel like?

Modified on Mon, 08 Apr 2024 at 01:07 AM

When using the Flow headset, you may experience a mild tingling, itching, or stinging sensation under or near the electrode areas on your forehead. These sensations are common and generally well-tolerated by most users.


The intensity of the sensation may vary from person to person, but it is typically described as a slight "pins and needles" feeling, a gentle warmth, or a slight discomfort. You may feel a stronger sensation on the left forehead due to the direction of the electric current. Some users may not feel any sensation, but this does not indicate that Flow is not working.


It's important to note that if the sensations become painful or difficult to tolerate, you should stop the stimulation immediately and consider trying later that day or the next day.


During or after the stimulation, you may notice some redness on your skin under or near the electrode sites. This is due to increased local blood flow and is a normal response. The redness should subside within about an hour after the stimulation ends.


Remember, everyone's experience with the Flow headset may be slightly different, but the sensations should generally be mild and tolerable and not painful.
