PORTABLE HYPERBARIC CHAMBERS
Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy (HBOT), is the medical use of oxygen in a pressurized environment, at a level higher than 1 atmosphere absolute (ATA). This type of therapy increases oxygen absorption in the body by 4.8 times.
Increased pressure allows for oxygen to dissolve and saturate the blood plasma (independent of hemoglobin/red blood cells), which yields a broad variety of positive physiological, biochemical and cellular effects. This noninvasive therapy is the most trusted way to increase oxygen levels to all organs of the body. The typical treatment lasts for 60-90 minutes, during which the patient lies down and breathes normally.
HBOT has been demonstrated in several clinical studies to enhance the body’s innate ability to repair and regenerate. It is used as an adjunct therapy to complement and enhance the healing process in both Chronic and Acute conditions.
The oxygen can reach areas in the body that are Hypoxic (without oxygen). This calms your Neurosensors with the 4 PSI pressure and saturates your blood and Cerebrospinal Fluid, so that your Spinal Cord and brain are bathed in oxygen.
BEMER (Bio-Electro-Magnetic Energy Regulation) is designed to improve circulation, thereby supporting the body’s natural self-regulating processes. The working mechanism of BEMER consists of a unique signal transmitted into the body via an Electromagnetic field.
Why The BEMER Signal?
The BEMER signal, not the Electromagnetic field, acts as the agent that stimulates the circulatory response. Blood is the body’s universal means of transport. Oxygen, nutrients, chemical messengers (i.e., hormones), immune cells, etc. are all transports through our blood. Only when all of our body’s cells, tissues, and organs are adequately nourished, and all metabolic waste products removed, can we be healthy and have our body function properly. The optimal regulation of circulation is a prerequisite for ensuring adequate levels of health and fitness.
Shockwave therapy with PiezoWave² utilizes Myofascial Acoustic Compression Therapy (MyACT) to find the focus of pain and treat at the source. How we utilize this equipment here at Bloch is different than most places. We trace the nerves and have our own special protocols to treat certain conditions. We use it to treat the full body, specifically the upper and lower quadrant.
Piezo ceramic crystals are arranged on a concave transducer in a mosaic pattern. A high-voltage current briefly excites the piezo crystals, causing them to expand simultaneously a few micrometers along their axis to create a pressure wave. The piezo elements are aligned precisely to the therapy focus. The precise, focused, and nonlinear dissemination of the pulse results in steepening at the point of focus, creating a compression event.
VORTEX CRYSTALLINE WATER
VORTEX CRYSTALLINE WATER (VC-Water) – Bloch Wellness and Sports Medicine is one of the Official Suppliers of Vortex Crystalline Water. This is the only drinking water used at our practice. We only want the best water for our clients, to help keep them hydrated and it’s another way we can support their health.
Why Vortex Water?
This VC-Water system presents an 11-step process to achieve structured water of the highest purity. It removes gases and solid particles in the water, harmonizes a PH of 8.3-8.5 and filters the water with Crystals and Carbon 6. It’s then purposefully restructured and stripped of negative memory, without adding anything back in. This is achieved through Vortexing, magnetic energy and select quality super crystals for dynamic healing and energetic structuring.
LS PRO LIGHT SYSTEMS
Bloch uses these advanced leading edge light therapy products, designed to specifically accelerate your body’s repair process and enhance performance levels in sports and everyday life.
Why Light Therapy?
LED light therapy is a process by which energy is delivered to various parts of the body via Light Emitting Diodes and is absorbed by the cells for therapeutic benefits. The energy wave lengths penetrate the skin to different depths, providing the energy cells need to activate increased circulation, pain relief and trigger the release of Nitric Oxide, the body’s natural vaso-dilator. This brings greater blood flow, oxygen and energy levels to the area being treated.
Far Infrared (FIR) is a region in the infrared spectrum of electromagnetic radiation. Invisible to the human eye, far infrared light is experienced as heat. Unlike the heat produced in traditional saunas, Far Infrared Heat penetrates the body to a depth of 1.5 to 2 inches.
Why Infrared Sauna?
Heat therapy, and sauna use, has been shown to boost the immune system and increase our resistance to infections. Regular sauna users have an up to 44% reduced risk of pneumonia!
Far infrared sauna benefits include suppressed skin aging, improved water-holding capacity, improved circulation, and faster healing. Click on the below links to go directly to the published studies.
Far infrared sauna therapy has been shown to increase the body’s natural antioxidants, protecting us against oxidative damage, which is the main cause of disease and aging.
