You wet little ‘primers’ and place the headset firmly on your head, fire up the app and allow the headset to send e-messages to your brain for 20 minutes as you warm up. Stimulation strength can be selected from a scale of 1-10, though they’re all almost imperceptible, even if your scalp can get a little warm.
