Regularly? Well, no not really. I mean, I don't know a whole lot, but you can use an ultrasound device up to 2,000,000 Hz. I know an ultrasound device and this shock therapy are different, but I'd definitely think it'd be safe to use, even regularly without damage unless you had a health problem like a heart issue or anything like that, and then I would not even use it.
I don't know though. I just really don't think it'd be so strong that it could cause damage after using, even for periods of time. I mean you can go through electrolysis (hair removal) regularly over and over without damage, but then again, some electrolysis can scar. Those are two totally different types of devices, but from my experience with electrolysis, it's stronger and didn't give me damage and I'd never been told to be cautious or told of possible damages, so I don't think the shock therapy would be anything to worry with. If anything I would expect it to be helpful rather than harmful.
Maybe consult a physician? The manufacturer?
