The treatment

The technology from the States that we use in our clinic is the Electro-Acuscope/Myopulse system.

Yes, electricity is involved. But only a very tiny amount.

What we do is a million miles away from the sort of brutal electro-shock therapy that used to be done years ago. It’s not about stimulating muscles and causing them to contract. The amount of electricity used is so small, you won’t feel anything during the treatment.

The treatments are non-invasive and non-toxic. There is no pharmaceutical element whatsoever. In other words, it is drug-free.

In the United States, the type of machines we use have been registered with and approved by the FDA for over 30 years.

They impart a micro-current, as low as a thousandth of a millionth of an amp, in order to stimulate the ion channels in the cells of your body.

The science

There was a time when the existence of ion channels was not fully established in science. That changed in 1991. The Nobel Prize in Physiology and Medicine was awarded to two German scientists, Bert Sakmann and Erwin Neher.

Essentially, they had not only proved that ion channels exist: they also showed how significant they are to the overall well-being of the human body.

This is the basis for the treatments we provide at Advanced Healing Therapies.

Who else has used it?

Over the last 30 years, major names from the world of sport have gone on record to say they use the Acuscope / Myopulse system.

Golf legend Jack Nicklaus has spoken about how he has benefitted from the treatment during his career. Other prominent advocates include former NFL star Terry Bradshaw and top ice hockey player Wayne Gretzky.

In the United States and Canada, professional sports teams such as Toronto Maple Leafs (ice hockey) and Chicago White Sox (baseball) have Acuscopes as part of the standard equipment in their training rooms.
