I was once a guinea pig in a study where the researchers used
transcranial magnetic stimulation (TMS) to hijack my right hand. I
would not describe that feeling as a "light massage" - it was more
like the reflex when a doctor hits the nerve on your knee with that
little rubber hammer. Not unpleasant, but startling every time.

Anyway, this set up seems a hell of a lot easier than TMS!
