What is BioActiv Therapy?
BioActiv Therapy is a multi-dimensional treatment for pain relief and restricted movement. The first part of the therapy is directed at the injury to control the pain, inflammation and kick start the tissue healing processes. This phase of therapy acts on cellular and tissue bio-mechanisms that regulate the whole body, not just focusing on the point affected by the problem but considering the body as a whole system. It is achieved by using multiple technologies based on scientific physical principles, such as electromagnetic and mechanical stimulations,
The second part of the therapy is directed to the restoring the normal movement of the tissues, normalising the joint articulation tissues as well as whole body advice on nutritional supplements for the body's metabolic healing and BioTensegrity exercises.

How effective is BioActiv Therapy?
BioActiv is very effective in both pain management and rehabilitation of damaged tissues.
Patients feel the benefits from the first treatment with patients experiencing immediate pain relief and a freeing up of movement within the damaged tissues. BioActiv therapy stimulates a biologic process called pro-inflammation that kick starts the healing and this may result in an increased swelling in the tissues treated at the end of the first day, but this quickly dissipates, and any swelling pain disappears by the second day.
Does BioActiv Therapy have any side effects?
BioActiv has no side effects and none of the risks typical of taking medications, steroid injections or surgery.
How does BioActiv Therapy treat pain?
The human body is the most evolved form of life, and is a self-regulating, self-adapting instrument necessary throughout life with a control centre developed in the mind. The mind also has a hard disk function and records injuries via the experience and memory of pain.
In the case of chronic pain or repeated injuries, the mental memory of the injury acts as a natural protection mechanism and continues to send signals generating pain "alert", to the various parts of the body, even after tissue healing. This biofeedback loop that remembers the pain within the body is called learning, and includes directly the tissues affected, the nervous system conducting pathway to the brain and the emotional reaction to the trauma stored in the brain cortex.
BioActiv Therapy uses gentle low-frequency stimulations of the nerve fibers involved in the transmission of this message, giving a "reboot to the nervous system" effectively, creating fresh connections removing these tissue signals, eliminating the nervous conductive blockages and positively affecting the emotional reaction to the trauma thereby removing the learnt pain.
What does the BioActiv Therapy feel like?
BioActiv therapy is very gentle and pain free, everything is aimed at reducing "stress" within the body. It is a painless procedure starting with feeling similar to a sensation of lightly stimulating the skin hair by light touch followed by a deeper resonating sensation during the active part of the treatment.
Is BioActiv Therapy similar to other therapies?

How long with the benefits last?
