What is Physiokey
Physiokey is a non-invasive treatment, which restores the body’s self-healing mechanism. The Physiokey device emits an electromagnetic signal, which is almost identical to the human nerve signal. This signal travels along certain types of nerve fibres, which triggers the release of powerful pain-relieving substances into the bloodstream called endorphins. Physiokey also stimulates the production of neuropeptides, which rapidly advances healing.
Who can benefit from Physiokey?
Anyone who is experiencing pain whether chronic or acute may benefit from Physiokey therapy. Pain can be useful! When you have an injury, pain alerts the brain and the body to where the injury is so that the brain can produce its pain-killing endorphins and the body can begin to heal. Imagine a sprained ankle, the pain alerts the nervous system and the body responds immediately so that the injury can begin to heal as soon as possible. After all, the body cannot afford for you to limp around for very long! This is an acute injury and the pain is a positive symptom of healing. On the other hand, often pain persists long after a reasonable healing period has elapsed, especially if the damage was severe or extensive. Extended use of painkillers can also affect healing because they take away the signal the brain needs to repair the injury. After a while, the brain, nervous system, endocrine and immune system cannot work on the injury any longer but the pain is still there, this is called chronic pain. Physiokey helps our adaptation systems produce mediators, hormones and other chemical substances and redirects the body’s energy back to the injury and gives the body what is known as “PRIMARY FOCUS”, the body can then begin to repair itself.
Why Is Physiokey Different?
The difference between Physiokey and some other therapies, which may require you to have indefinite ongoing treatment, is that Physiokey takes the body through the healing cycle to completion. This means that once your treatment is finished, it is unlikely that you will need further treatment for the same problem. Most acute problems only require 3 to 5 sessions.
What happens in your first session?
Following a full consultation and the formulation of a treatment plan, you will be asked to remove clothing appropriate to where your treatment area or injury is. You will then be covered to maintain your comfort and modesty.
When the Physiokey is applied to your skin you will feel a pins and needles sensation. You will be asked what energy level is comfortable for you. Please remember this is not an endurance test! Your treatment will be devised according to the information you give to the therapist and may consist of localised, general or a combination of both treatments.
How Many Sessions Will I Need?
The number of treatments varies depending on the complaint.
In general, acute problems need fewer treatments. For example, acute back pain may only require 3 or 4 sessions. Chronic conditions usually require between 5 to 8 sessions.
The Physiokey and Sanakey devices carry a CE mark for pain relief.
Physiokey Therapy may be used in conjunction with other therapies and conventional medicine.
Many of our clients have told us that as a result of Physiokey Therapy, other chronic conditions have improved, for example; depression, anxiety, allergies, fatigue, hormonal disorders and digestive disorders
