APS Therapy is a patented, easy to use, award winning, micro-current therapeutic device which can significantly enhance your quality of life. A short treatment time of up to 32 minutes per day has been clinically proven to assist in reducing acute and chronic pain, inflammation and swelling without the use of medicine.
APS Therapy has been used successfully on the following conditions:
Osteoarthritis, Rheumatoid Arthritis, Osteoporosis, Backache, Bedsores, Bells´Palsy, Bruises, Bunions, Bursitis, Cancer Pain, Carpal Tunnel, Circulation Disorders, Coccydynia, Crohn´s Disease, Fibromyalgia, Fibrositis, Gout, Ankylosing Spondylitis, Headache, Mastitis, Multiple Sclerosis, Oedema, Osgood Schlatters, Paresthesia, Ohantom Pain, Post Herpetic and Trigeminal Neuralgia, RSD, Shoulder Impingement, Sciatica, Shingles, Sinusitis, Sport Injuries, Tennis Elbow, Varicose Ulcers.
The APS Therapy device won the gold medal at the 1998 International Invention Show (Medical Category) in Geneva, Switzerland and is patented in 38 countries;
How APS Works
APS Therapy uses a micro current to stimulate the body´s natural nerve impulse resulting in the release of specific neuro-hormones by the body and causing ten important things to happen:
Definition of Neuro-hormones
Classically a neurotransmitter is released by a neuron into a synaptic cleft to conduct an electrical impulse to another neuron (or muscle or gland). The concept of neurotransmission was first described in 1904. Hormones are released by endocrine glands into the bloodstream to communicate messages chemically for expression of effects at distant target tissues. The term hormone (Greek: "To set in motion / spur on") was coined by Starling in 1905.
As time went by and new discoveries came to light, it became clear that neurotransmitters and hormones could no longer be regarded as separate unrelated entities. Researchers perceived that neurons also release neurotransmitters into the bloodstream that bind to receptors on distant target tissues, and that hormones can occur in neurons to conduct messages across the synaptic cleft. This is how the term "neurohormone" was established.
Definition of pain
According to the International Association for the Study of Pain (1979), pain is defined as an unpleasant sensation and an emotionally charged experience associated with the actual or potential existence of tissue damage, or it is described in terms of such damage.
Pain can also be described as the result of sensory perception and cortical integration of a stimulus which threatens the integrity of body tissues Neurohormones that play an important role in the physiology of pain Biochemical / Neurochemical and endocrinological parameters such as potassium, ß-endorphin, leucine enkephalin, serotonin, melatonin and cortisol are found under normal conditions in the human body in specific blood concentrations. Such values are called "normal values".
The body strives to maintain this homeostasis.Various stress situations in the human body, which include acute and chronic pain, will alter (increase or decrease) the blood concentrations of these parameters. This is an attempt to maintain a normal balance in the body. The above is part of the process in the body to cope with stress and to survive.
