What is Ultrasound & How is it produced ?
Ultrasound is a high frequency soundwave.
It is produced by the vibration of a crystal inside a sound head. A gel is used to allow better transmission of soundwaves into by tissue.
What is it used for and what are the benefits of Ultrasound ?
Ultrasound speeds up the rate of soft tissue (tendon, muscle, ligament) repair after the acute phase of inflammation has subsided and also helps to reduce fibrous scar tissue. This, in turn, greatly reduces the risk of re-injury.
How does it speed up the healing process ?
By creating a mild soothing warmth it increases blood flow to the injured site allowing a greater rate of repair and removal of waste products.
Is it Safe ?
Yes. There are no side effects and the penetration is so effective that even deep soft tissue can be effectively treated.

What is it? How does it work ?
Parrafin wax therapy has been used since 1962 because it is one of the most effective methods of delivering heat to aching joints. Melted parrafin wax is able to retain a great amount of heat, which is then safely transfered to the affected body part as the wax hardens.
What is it used for ?
Fast, drug-free relief for painful arthritis, bursitis, and chronic joint inflammation. Parrafin wax therapy relaxes aching, tired muscles, relieves stiffness and muscle spasms. It is twice as beneficial as traditional moist heat treatments.
Heat from the parrafin wax also opens pores and increases blood flow in the skin. It stimulates circulation as well as deeply moisturises, nourishes and protects dry, damaged or cracked skin.
Is it safe
Yes. There are no side effects with the use of parrafin wax. If you are still concerned you should consult your GP.
