Static Massage Therapy is a perfect combination of traditional medical theory and modern bio-electricity principles. A German developed DDS machine energizes low DC current through the trained massage technicians hands onto the surface of the body. This method implements traditional Asian medicine and energizes meridians within the body utilizing the same pathways as Acupuncture. SMT is a drug free therapy option for people in pain that promotes the body to produce endorphins to help relieve pain similar to a TENS unit, but much more effectively. It is safe, FDA approved and a reliable alternative means of physical therapy to acupuncture and other methods of non drug pain therapy.
Our trained and certified Static Massage Therapist applies a Bioelectricity field through their hands directly to the body thats experiencing pain in conjunction with a specially formulated alkaline cream. SMT also aids in regulating the body’s acid-based balance. During bioelectric massage therapy, flat rubber adhesive discs (called electrodes) are applied to your skin at the prescribed areas to be treated.
The process begins with DC electrodes that are hooked up to a computer that programs the precise Bioelectric current dosage required (This is completely harmless). Frequency alternating DC-Low electrical currents is then applied to the electrodes. The currents move through the skin quickly with little discomfort. During Bioelectric massage treatment, your response to the electrical stimulation is measured. When the certified clinician applies the energy oil and cream during the bioelectric massage therapy, the skin absorbs most of the oil and cream to help blood circulation and ease the ongoing pain you are being treated for. This sensation is not uncomfortable; It is actually very relaxing, soothing and pain relieving
and comfort to the area of treatment The pain reduction benefits of this therapy are immediate and usually felt over a period of 24 hours.
HOW STATIC MASSAGE ELIMINATES PAIN
How does SMT do to relieve, decrease or eliminate pain? There are two theories. One of these theories is called The Gate Control Theory and is the most advanced explanation. The gate-control theory suggests that there’s a neural mechanism in spinal cord that acts as a kind of gate, shutting down or opening up the flow of signals from the periphery to the brain. Whether the gate is open, closed or partially closed depends on what sort of signal it receives from the brain to change the perception of pain in the user’s body. These frequencies interfere with the transmission of pain messages at the so spinal cord level, and help block their transmission to the brain. Another theory is called The Endorphin Release, which suggests that electrical impulses stimulate the production of endorphins and encephalin in the body. These natural morphine-like substances block pain messages from reaching the brain, in a similar fashion to conventional drug therapy, but without the danger of dependence or other side effects. They also reduce inflammation one of the most common causes of pain. Come by and see for yourself how great this therapy is, for relieving pain and giving you a very relaxed feeling of well being.
