The SYNUS device looks for areas of the skin where current can pass most easily through the skin and into the sinus passage via nerve fibers. Once the device locates such an area, it creates a low-frequency circuit through the body from the device tip to the hand. This circuit path pulls the current into the sinus membranes.
The current level SYNUS uses is low enough that many people don’t feel anything. Some describe a slight tingly or prickly sensation when used on the highest setting.
