I've been using this therapy for 15 years along side traditional medicine. Use in combo you have the weapons to treat what I call the oddities of medicine. Fibromyalgia, Immune therapy failed Allergies, IBS, Incontinance, All types of neoropathies, etc. It is the therapy of choice of any failed otheropedic procedures ... necks, backs, shoulders, hips, knees, ankles, CTS, jaw, thoricic outlet sydrome. It is powerful in treating RSD, CRPS, Trigeminal Nerve/Facial nerve, Phantom limp issues ... the list is super long!!!
