Circulation Therapy FAQs

Frequently Asked Questions

How can the nature of this therapy be briefly explained?

It is designed to improve circulation thereby supporting the body’s natural self-regulating processes. Blood is the body’s universal means of transport. Oxygen, nutrients, chemical messengers (e.g. hormones) and immune cells etc. are all transported through our blood. Only when all of our body’s cells, tissues and organs are adequately nourished and all metabolic waste products removed, can we be healthy and productive and our body function properly. The optimal regulation of circulation is a prerequisite for ensuring good levels of health and fitness.

What does circulation mean?

Circulation involves the whole body, from the largest vessels to the smallest. This is the level (capillaries) where it is crucial to maintain the exchange of nutrients and oxygen and the removal of metabolic waste products such as carbon dioxide, which accumulate as a result of normal cellular function. We have a huge network of extremely small blood vessels in our body, some of which are four times thinner than a strand of hair. These beds of small vessels surround all organs and tissues in the body and are vital to cellular function.

Why is proper circulation so important for a person’s wellbeing and physical performance?

Scientific findings confirm that correctly functioning circulation is of crucial importance in ensuring a person’s wellbeing and physical performance. In all advanced organisms, blood circulation regulates the nourishment of cells with oxygen and nutrients, the removal of waste products and many other processes.

Can circulation therapy cure diseases?

The therapy is not a disease-specific application. It’s effect on the circulation and the resulting improvements to the supply and removal of substances to/from the body’s cells allows these cells to produce and supply increasing amounts of energy, and therefore carry out their tasks (production) in a more functional manner.

Why is this therapy being increasingly recommended by doctors?

Because it supports diverse, natural self-regulating mechanisms. (therefore broad efficacy spectrum).

Because there is no evidence of any dangerous side effects after long term use.

Because it can be easily combined with all other treatment methods. It is also especially suitable for the support of conventional medical therapies.

Because its effects are scientifically proven.

Because its mode of action is grounded in practice and theory and has been tried and tested over a long period of practical application.

These systems are tested and registered as medical devices. They are equally suited for both medical professionals and for home use by the end user.

Are there any side effects of using this therapy?

Side effects are understood as undesirable accompanying effects such as allergies, bleeding, etc. To date, no dangerous side effects have been detected with long-term application.

Is this therapy recognized in conventional medicine?

This therapy already forms part of conventional medicine as a complementary application. It is currently accepted by specialist medical bodies and is key topic in medical working groups and a current object of research in a number of universities.

What is the attitude of doctors towards this therapy?

Doctors are increasingly opting for “integrative medicine”. In this respect, this therapy is very widely accepted. Doctors and clinicians alike use this therapy in private practice as an adjunct therapeutic modality to complement conventional treatments.
