Within the Complex of SHPTR Nëna Naile Spa, in addition to the well-known physical therapies, there is also a Tourmaline Sauna and Frequency Spectrum Lamp, which make it possible to treat a significant number of diseases and contribute to beautification, weight loss, body shaping, healing of neck, shoulder, waist, leg pains and muscle strains.
Tourmaline can accelerate blood circulation and metabolism, flush out toxins and balance the human pH value.
The Tourmaline Sauna treats and is particularly useful for the following:
Parafango Therapy, which is a thermotherapy procedure, is used to transmit the specific warmth of mud, i.e., a mixture of diluted peloid or medicinal mud with many minerals to the patient’s body. The temperature of the parafango mud is usually 50 °C. The heat is first absorbed by the skin which leads to an increase in skin perfusion and later it is transmitted to the deeper structures of the body where it has anti-inflammatory effects. These packages are recommended for the treatment of diseases of the locomotive system.
Indications: Parafango therapy, due to the minerals found in the medical mud, not only has a cosmetic effect on the skin, but also a therapeutic one. Deep-impact heating, acting on the skin, causes muscle relaxation, promotes blood circulation, and relieves pain. It treats rheumatic, muscle pain, but can also be used as a preparation for physiotherapeutic exercises to treat fractures, reduce pain in arthritis and treat inflammation and muscle tension.
Moreover, it is not preferred for open wounds or inflammatory skin diseases.
Electrotherapy is used as follow-up therapy during rehabilitation to relax muscle spasms, prevent and delay disc atrophy, increase local blood circulation, muscle rehabilitation and electrical muscle stimulation, preservation and increase of the range of motion, manage chronic and interactive pain, acute post-traumatic pain, acute post-surgical pain, wound healing and many others. Different types of currents are used here, such as: Electrostimulation, TENS, Diadynamic, Galvanic, Interferential, Electrophoresis, Magnet, etc.
All electrotherapy devices have certain similarities such as using battery power to apply current to the electrodes. Therapies vary in frequencies, waveforms, and effects. These are some of the more common types of electrotherapy:
• Transcurrent electrical nerve stimulation • Electrical muscle stimulation • Interference current • Electromagnetic pulse therapy • Galvanic stimulation
Ultrasound and laser therapy are often grouped with electrotherapy or the broader category of electro-physical agents even though they do not deliver an electrical current. With ultrasound, sound waves are directed at the affected area to speed up the healing process. Laser therapy can also be used to help tissue heal and provides a more targeted and intensive treatment.
Electrotherapy is usually used in conjunction with other treatments rather than by itself. For people undergoing physical therapy, electrotherapy can relieve pain sufficiently enough for an individual to participate more actively in targeted exercises. Electrotherapy is one of the pain relief options gaining attention as the potential risks and side effects of opioid (narcotic) drugs have become more apparent. Attempts to use electric current to aid in healing go back to ancient times. The modern era of electrotherapy began with treatment for anxiety and depression, and the number of potential uses has grown ever since. Electrotherapy has been used to treat chronic pain and chronic fatigue in general, as well as:
• Diabetic nerve pain • Fibromyalgia • Migraines • Wound healing • Stimulation of bone growth
Electrotherapy can take many forms, but the most common type is transcurrent electrical nerve stimulation.
