Neural Therapy


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.

· Chronic infections
· Hormone imbalances including thyroid, adrenal and ovarian hormones


What can I expect from a treatment?


After an initial assessment the patient lays on the treatment table while the doctor uses small needles to inject local anesthetic into the identified areas of dysfunction. The effect of the treatment often produces immediate relief of symptoms. The patient can experience a feeling of euphoria, energy going to the head (‘lightening reaction’), and/or emotional release. All responses are important in the healing process.
One of the beautiful things about neural therapy is that it can go directly to the site of the problem and clear it out, relieving toxic burden that can build up.
A typical course of neural therapy treatment is about six sessions.
