    Very interesting @Sly Saint :thumbup: It's like what we do for migraines - ice packs on the forehead to numb out the pain and reduce swelling of blood vessels/tissues.

    On lieu of this super duper machine, I'm going to go to bed with an ice pack on my ridiculously insomniac brain tonight. Worth a try. :ill:
