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.

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
"Just thinkin' about tomorrow
Clears away the cobwebs and the sorrow 'til there's none
When I'm stuck with a day that's grey and lonely
I just stick out my chin and grin and say, oh
The sun will come out tomorrow
So you gotta hang on
'til tomorrow, come what may!"

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.
