Human grooming

Science couldn't find the pain

Only your skin can hurt that way,
but scientist keep on searching beneath it.

The pain is in the skin

How to remove your pain with human grooming techniques.

Folds and crossings are painful

Articulations and muscles can’t hurt; they don’t feel

Misunderstood cutaneous pain

Humans didn't have the courage to press their nails into their pain.

Reserchers didn't put their finger on the problem

Using the wrong tools

Finding your pain in your skin

Press your nail into your pain and you will find a fold crossing in the skin.

How pain is transmitted

Tiny nerves travelling long distances


Nociceptors in your skin are specialized in pain detection.

Path of nervous impulse

The pain impulses are transmitted from the nociceptors to the brain along fine nerve strands.

Your skin is packed with nociceptors

1,300 pain receptors on one square inch of skin.
