Livia – The Off Switch for Menstrual Pain
The Off Switch for Menstrual Pain.
Getting your period sucks. For some of us it sucks a whole lot more. We’ve been working on a high tech solution for years, and we couldn’t be prouder to present Livia.
Livia is the off switch for your menstrual cramps. Livia is a drug-free solution for menstrual pain. With one single touch, the tiny device closes the “pain gates” by stimulating the nerves and blocking the pain from passing to the brain. No more pain, no more pills.
Livia’s technology is based on the “Gate Control Theory”. Livia is transmitting a pulse that is keeping the nerves “busy”. Busy nerves means that the nerve-gate is closed, therefore pain signals cannot pass through and are unfelt.

- The crying
- Feeling like you’ve just gotten punched in the stomach 5 times

- The cramps
- Trying to hide how-much-I-wanna-punch-that-guy-at-work
Also, it’s crazy that it’s 2016 and many of us are out-of-commission for a few days every month with intense pain and cramps. So yeah, there’s that.
