What does the sound wave do?2022-05-05T11:36:31+00:00

Shockwave therapy delivers sound waves to the affected areas of your body and aids speedy recovery by increasing blood flow, decreasing inflammation, and stimulating repair and regeneration all the way down to your cells.

When you receive shockwave therapy you are getting 2000-4000 shockwaves into the tissue thereby taking the affected issue from a chronic state to an acute one. In doing so, this provides a stimulant or trigger to a stalled injury or chronic pain.

How does it help with both pain and aesthetics?2022-05-05T11:37:15+00:00

Your body has a remarkable ability to naturally heal itself. Shockwave is designed to ‘kick start’ your healing process from a ‘stalled’ state and speed up the natural healing process. This helps with pain, aesthetics, and other conditions such as erectile dysfunction.

How does it reduce pain?2022-05-05T11:40:40+00:00

The pulses delivered to the tissue help inhibit the transmission of the pain signal.

Shockwaves influence the tissue on a cellular level, promoting the release of pain inhibiting and inflammatory substances required for the healing process.

Shockwaves increase blood flow deep into the tissues, promoting tissue healing and regeneration.

What is Tissue Regeneration?2022-05-13T17:35:55+00:00

Every cell in your body is there for a good reason. Shockwave machines stimulate stem cell production and have shown amazing effects on reducing scarring, reducing healing times, and fighting the aging process from the cellular level.

It is ideal for people that want to reduce cellulite, improve body shape, restore muscle tone, and improve circulation and lymph drainage. Studies have shown that this produces better long-term results than Botox injections or liposuction, without any of the unpleasant side effects associated with invasive cosmetic procedures.

Does it hurt?2022-05-05T11:43:15+00:00

Shockwave is not as scary as it sounds. It is designed as an alternative to surgery and injections. While you might feel discomfort at the beginning, your body gets used to it, so there’s nothing to be worried about. The intensity can be changed by the technician through your feedback during the treatment. It’s not meant to be painful!

Who should not receive Shockwave Therapy?2022-05-13T17:37:03+00:00

Shockwave Therapy is safe; however, clients who are pregnant or who have tumors or blood clots should not proceed with shockwave therapy.
