Such procedures are useful, and effective for many people, hey contribute to quick recovery, soften pains and prevent disease recurrence.
The term “physiotherapy” as such suggests that the patient is affected by natural or other artificially-produced physical factors. These factors seem to stimulate organs, force them to work more actively, thus promoting health recovery. Such factors include magnetic field, infrared and UV-radiation, therapeutic mud, climate, water, electric current.
Nowadays, medical professionals possess good methods allowing them to use standard current as a treatment power. The main distinction between modern electric treatment methods is the use of direct and alternate current of different voltage, frequency and rate.

Figural phrase “the overweight of cares presses on the shoulders” has a quite scientific background. Permanent stress and violent pace of life result in the change of muscle tone of reflectory zones, muscle spasms, which leads to breach of biorhythms of internal organs functioning and quick wear of the organism. According to WHO statistics, every 4th citizens of the planet above 40 years old suffers from osteochondrosis and various disorders of internal organs.

Acupuncture method is successfully used for low immune function and getting rid of tobacco abuse. This method is irreplaceable for the patients with drug allergy who cannot take many medicines.

In ayurveda diseases are interpreted as disorder of the organism’s internal balance: if the organism is in balance, no diseases can threat it. Ayurveda uses different types of massage, which in combination with healing herbs and oils activate natural resources of the organism and normalize its internal balance. Thus, not only disease is removed but also its reason, which ensures a stable recovery effect.
Ayurvedic massage stimulates life essential active points, metabolism and work of blood and lymphatic sinuses. Due to this, it allows to clean the organism from wastes, toxins and unnecessary liquid. Oils used during massage improve skin condition (due to its cleaning and lifting effect), help to remove cellulite and contribute to general rejuvenation of the organism.
Such rejuvenation occurs not only on the internal level. Indian oil massage activates production of two important substances – dopamine and melatonin. Dopamine, the so-called “hormone of happiness”, allows to get rid of consequences of depression and stresses. It is dopamine exactly which helps to improve your mood and physical state – internal and external muscles get relaxed, fatigue is relieve. The second substance – melatonin – slows down the process of ageing of certain organism systems, it is responsible for normal sleep and improves biorhythms. Due to melatonin, memory is improved, attention focusing and mental activity is increased.
