Hi
Has anyone tried this treatment?
I've had 2 sessions last week and will have another 2 this week. It felt warm and comfortable and did temporarily reduce my pain. It is supposed to get rid of it permanently.
Thanks
Irma

Hi Irma,
I had quite a few weeks of this treatment last year and found that during the treatment I relaxed and often fell asleep. The treatment itself was nice but it didn't really have long term affects for me, however everyone is different and if nothing else I got to relax and had the warmth on my body.
My GP did the treatments and I am thinking that with the cooler weather now approaching that it might be an added treatment during the coming months to help reduce the increased pain.
I also should say that my GP bulk billed it too so there was no cost involved.

Good luck and keep us posted on how you go

Jo :)

The sun will come out tomorrow

Hi
What condition do you have?
I have Fibromyalgia, restless legs syndrome amongst other things.
I have an EPC referral to the chiropractor who is administering the treatment so I will have 5 treatments bulkbilled. After that they are $60 each.
I've read some info online which seems to be from the US only, so I was interested in finding out local (Australia) opinions and views.
Thanks
Irma

Hi Irma,

I have CRPS, Migraines, Neck and Back problems and feet issues. My GP thought it might help with my Migraines, Neck and CRPS in my left arm.

Good Luck

Jo
