is a treatment focusing on the effective prevention and treatment of a wide range of gynaecological and urological diseases, remediation after infections of the pelvic organs, and treatment of menopause syndrome.
A new effective remedy for locomotor diseases and cellulite, which marks a revolutionary breakthrough in the treatment of chronic congestion. The method is based on the application of high energy vibrations in the area of the diseases. The treatment permanently reduces pain, improves local blood circulation, releases painful bone growths, calcified and fibrotic deposits - with the subsequent resorption of their fragments. The positive effect of this method is to significantly reduce and eliminate pain by disrupting the vicious circle of a disease, restoring the range of movement in the joints and subsequently increasing the load capacity, returning to professional or daily activities.
Practical experience shows that 80-85% of patients have a sustained effect after treatment with the SHOCKWAVE instrument, and many patients have been able to return to their professional activity after the first procedure. Moreover, this treatment method is very suitable for athletes, not required for them to be excluded for a long period from the rhythm of competitions or training, as well as for businesspeople, because it has a permanent positive effect after just three short treatment procedures.
The High Induction Magnetotherapy method works as follows: the instruments generates an electromagnetic field projected onto a limited segment of the human body so that it covers the application zone. This field interacts with the cells of the body, then compensatory mechanisms triggered within them, resulting in the induction field’s basic effect. Health problems affect not only the structure of organs and tissues but the magnetic properties of the body. If we act accordingly toward the damaged organs, we can return them to a natural balance, which will help one to heal more quickly.
The effect of anti-inflammatory, sedative, anti-flow, hypotensive (lowering of arterial pressure), analgesic effect (helping to effectively overcome even strong phenomena such as phantom pain) as the basic effects of high induction magnetotherapy. Moreover, processes that ensure normal tissue nutrition and improve their regeneration capacity are restored. High-induction magnetotherapy is also a tool that can deliver great relief and, in some cases, completely eliminate unwanted feelings of pain.

The detoxification of the organism accelerates the metabolism, helps prevent arteriosclerosis, slows the ageing process, and improves the elasticity of the skin. The principle is based on eliminating waste substances from the body with the help of negative ions. These ions are basic (alkaline) and naturally allow the body to eliminate acidic waste. Acidic waste substances are precisely what cause so many problems and dysfunctions in the joints, tissues, muscles, and organs.
