Mechanical Lymph Drainage*
This procedure assists in the drainage of lymph nodes and vessels using air chambers that are gradually filled by a compressor in the direction running from the distil parts towards the proximal parts of the body. Both the pressure and the program are adjustable. After the first cycle is finished the air is let out of the chambers and the whole cycle is repeated.
In this treatment water is used for a cleansing irrigation of the colon. A specific amount of water is repeatedly injected into the colon using a simple device. The irrigation is suitable as a cleansing washout for treating stubborn constipation and for detoxication of the organism.
Reflex massage of the soles
This is a special massage during which the therapist puts pressure on the soles of the patient’s feet and massages the reflex zones. The massage is based on the relationship between these reflex spots and the relevant organs in the body. The main effects of the massage are better blood supply to the organs, mobilization of minor joints of the foot, stretching of shortened muscles and stimulation of the reflex points.
This treatment is normal walk but with special canes that make the patient strain all the muscles in his body while the joints in lower limbs are relieved. Nordic walking is a very pleasant form of movement, which can be performed by everybody – both by a top athlete and by a beginner, both by a young man and by a senior.
It is a special form of individual therapeutic physical training. Its concept was invented and patented in Norway. Therapy Master is used for various methods of physiotherapy. The principle consists in the client’s own activity in unstable positions, when he works with the weight of his own body and when a change of his centre of gravity is used for making the exercise easier or more difficult.
A special device generates impact waves, the effects of which are many times more intensive than normal ultrasound. The treatment is successfully used for treating tennis elbow and other enthesopathies, heel spur, the syndrom of painful shoulder and inflammation of Achilles tendon.
The Compressive Microvibration Method is the latest generation total body treatment that allows you to work on the whole body, from the feet to the neck, from the forehead to the abdomen, to the buttocks and arms. It is able to act on cellulite, restoring the correct physiological and vascular conditions of the tissue and performing a localized remodelling of the skin blemish.
The Compressive Microvibration therapy acts on the facial tissue working directly on the wrinkle with an increase in vascularization that stimulates the production of collagen and elastin and an increase in oxygenation, which nourishes the tissue. It is also able to work deeply on the muscles, de-contracting and toning the muscles of the face so as to eliminate expression wrinkles and avoid tissue sagging.
Moreover, the Royal Derma Clinic has exclusivity for this procedure, so can not get it anywhere alse else in Karlovy Vary.
EEG Biofeedback is a highly specialised method the purpose of which is to activate the nervous system, namely to train attention and concentration, self control and self discipline (to reduce impulsiveness and hyperactivity), to improve intellectual performance, and to speed up reactions and perception.
EEG Biofeedback will allow you to control your brain waves. It is a self-learning method based on biological feedback. It means that you receive instantaneous, targeted and precise feedback about brainwave activity and you can learn to bring it into harmony.
How is it done?
Training takes the form of computer game, which you game only with the power of your mind, without keyboard or mouse. Using small electrode is scanned records of electric brain activity to the client. Signal is sorted, analyzed and transferred to the form of computer game which client plays only with himself intellectual activity without help of keyboard and mouse. He drives a car, flies by fighter plane. He masters “the game” only with his brain activity. Other words: brain manages itself. When the brain activity is increasing in desirable zone, it happens to remuneration for good results in the game. This way brain develops itself the process of learning of new suitable brain waves frequency. After the activity increases in unwanted zone, success in the game disappears. The whole process is similar to normal learning and exercising.
Brain is enormously adaptable and able to learn, so it can improve also its own activity, if the immediate and targeted information are provided to him. Therefore are training results usually permanent.
For who is EEG biofeedback suitable?
EEG biofeedback is suitable for anyone and without age limit. For everyone who wants to improve functioning of nervous system.
