Reflex therapy



Objective: Stabilizing and matching reduced and increased tension of the musculature (hypotonia and hypertonia). Activating new functional and physiological possibilities of the body.

Method: Areas where the muscle has hardened (myotendinoses), sensitive points on the periosteum and classical acupuncture points are affected according to the experiences of Far Eastern medicine. A low-frequency power unit (Healthpoint) is used. This emits electrical current at low voltage with changing polarity, so that a varying effect, determined by the therapist, can be applied to the desired trigger zones. The therapist is in very close contact with the patient and directly checks the effects achieved by reflex therapy. The pathological horizontal and vertical reflex arcs are affected.

This is given additional positive support by isotonic muscle expansion, elements of traction, vibration and bee poison therapy (apitherapy).

Reinforcing the effect of muscle relaxation, which is achieved by correcting the vertebral column joints.

Increasing muscle tone in the case of hypotonia, reducing it in the case of hypertonia, by creating new possibilities of movement, making the radius of motor action larger.

Improving the circulation of the blood and thus the nutrition of the muscles, joints, tendons and ligaments as well as that of the central nervous system. Having an effect on disturbed vegetative functions (flow of saliva, sweat, etc.).
