What is Neural Therapy?
Neural therapy is a nervous system regulation therapy. The autonomic nervous system unconsciously regulates all of our body's automatic functions like heart rate, digestion, perspiration, blood flow and breathing. In order to keep the symphony of body functions in harmony, the flow of information through the integrated web of our nervous system needs to be open and clear for optimal communication. Optimal communication means the ability at any moment to adapt to the simultaneously organized and chaotic environment we exist within. Challenges to the nervous system that can block smooth flow of information, like trauma, infection and surgery can lead to blocked regulation and what are called interference fields.
Neural therapy uses the injection of the local anesthetic procaine into the areas of interference fields to unblock the nervous system and restore open regulation.
During a neural therapy treatment procaine is injected into identified interference fields like scars, acupuncture points, trigger points and other tissues to relieve pain and dysfunction throughout the body. Neural therapy’s healing effect is believed to work by normalizing the function of the nervous system. It is based on the theory that any trauma, infection, or surgery can produce long-standing disturbances in the electrochemical or electromagnetic function of tissues.
