Ionisation electrotherapy is a medical spa procedure that uses electric current to ionise the air in a room to achieve a therapeutic effect on health. This therapy is based on the principle of releasing negative or positive ions into the ambient air.
During the ionisation electrotherapy procedure, a specially designed device generates an electric current that passes through an electrode or series of electrodes placed in a room or space where the patient is. The electric current causes ionisation of the air particles in the room, resulting in the formation of negative or positive ions.
Negative ions are considered beneficial to human health as they are believed to have the following therapeutic effects:
- Improved air quality: Negative ions bind to pollutants and allergens in the air, such as dust, pollen or bacteria, which helps purify the air and reduce the risk of allergies or respiratory illnesses.
- Relaxing and stress-reducing effect: Negative ions are thought to stimulate the production of serotonin, a neurotransmitter associated with well-being and relaxation. They can therefore help reduce stress and anxiety levels.
- Improved mood and energy: Negative ions may have a positive effect on mood, helping to increase energy levels and mental alertness.
- Boosting the immune system: Some researchers suggest that negative ions may enhance the functioning of the immune system, helping the body to defend itself more effectively against infections and other ailments.
The ionisation electrotherapy procedure is generally painless and non-invasive. The duration and frequency of treatment will be determined according to the doctor’s recommendations and the patient’s individual needs. It is important to follow the instructions and recommendations of specialists in order to achieve the desired results and avoid potential risks associated with improper use of this therapy.
