EMS/TENS Treatment

EMS/TENS Treatment

Electrical Muscle Stimulation (EMS) is designed to provide muscular pain relief and reduce swelling and inflammation. EMS reduces muscle spasms, stiffness and edema, which are leading causes of muscle pain, discomfort and loss of function. It stimulates blood flow and improves range of motion, particularly in the back and neck due these areas tend to suffer from more tension than the rest of the body. EMS is also used for therapeutic muscle stimulation and growth for rehabilitation of muscles after injury or for athletic training

Transcutaneous Electric Nerve Stimulation (TENS) is a pain therapy that uses electrical impulses to relieve pain naturally without the use of medication. The electrical pulses stimulate nerve endings and the skin to create endorphins (natural feel-good chemicals) and confuse pain signals. These natural feel-good chemicals are essential to pain relief and mood enhancement for those who suffer from painful chronic conditions.

Easyforce Rehabilitation

EasyForce is a digital dynamometer that provides objective and accurate measurements of muscle strength and symmetry to aid treatment plans, objectively monitor progress and enhance patient feedback. This unit can also be used to facilitate isometric muscle growth, especially for patients who are in the initial phase of rehabilitation.

Cupping is a type of alternative therapy that involves placing cups on the skin to create suction.It uses the force of suction to pull blood towards the surface of the skin. This will increase the body's natural healing response in these areas.

The effects of cupping therapy include:
Promoting the skin’s blood flow by increasing red blood cells
Stimulate the peripheral nervous system
Increasing pain thresholds
improving local anaerobic metabolism
Reducing inflammation and muscle tightness
Boosting cellular immunity
Increase range of motion

What my Clients Say

Had a great experience with Charne Botha. She assisted me with my shoulder impingements and gave me very useful exercises to do as well as helping with my posture. She has also assisted me with multiple other joint and muscle pains.

Outstanding service, I would recommend to anyone.
