Having pain can be debilitating. The Cambium Wellness Center at Tree of Life is pleased to offer sessions with the AVACEN® 100, a FDA-Cleared, over-the-counter, non-invasive device that may provide temporary relief for arthritis, muscle and joint pain; and muscle relaxation without a prescription. In addition, the AVACEN 100 has E.U. CE Mark Approval for the temporary relief of widespread pain associated with fibromyalgia and the increase of microcirculation.
Your hand plays an important role in your thermal regulation. It contains a unique heat exchange vascular network that distributes blood throughout the hand.
The AVACEN 100 is designed to use this unique network to thin and warm the blood before it returns to the heart for distribution throughout the body.
For the therapy, you simply put on one of the sanitary mitts, then insert your hand into the unit and your therapist will start the session. You’ll hear the sound of a vacuum being created and feel the cuff gently seal around your wrist. Your hand rests comfortably on a pad that begins to gently heat up your palm, which will distend this vascular network while thinning the blood and increasing flow. As this warmer blood leaves the hand, it begins its soothing journey to the places it’s needed the most…the places that hurt.
This warmed blood travels through your deep tissue onto the peripheral capillary network in an effort to dissipate this excess heat and keep you at normal body temperature.
Studies have shown that increasing micro circulation may help enhance the delivery of oxygen and nutrition to muscles while helping to carry away toxins. The result is healthier, more relaxed muscles throughout your entire body and reduced pain.
