Firstly, we must apologise for keeping you in suspense for this one for over an entire week! The enquiries have continued to flood in, the results have continued to speak for themselves, and the feedback has continued to come in waves of tears, thank you’s, and awe (from our team and patients alike).
If you missed our first blog introducing ANF, what it does and how it works, you must check it out here – it’ll put today’s info into context for you and help you understand just how incredible this therapy is. As promised, today we’re sharing which conditions we treat using ANF and the low-down of the four stages of ANF therapy and what you can expect.
Truly, the best thing you can do is to have a consultation to see if we can help you with ANF – because if we can, you won’t look back. (Or maybe you’ll finally be able to look back after not previously being able to because of back/neck/shoulder pain).
Did we mention that ANF treatment uses no chemicals or drugs and has no side effects? Because the discs are placed on the outside of the skin, and are activated by body heat and water, the treatment is completely non-invasive in your traditional physical needle-like sense. This also means that they have no negative side effects.
Instead, the discs transmit a unique range of frequencies through the neurons in the body. (Yes – there are hundreds of different discs, and we match the right discs with the right tissues and organs). The nervous system picks up these frequencies and starts a self-healing and self-regulating process. By improving the nervous system signalling directly at the cellular level, the effect of the treatment is much faster and has remarkable, durable results.
To help you better understand the process and what you can expect, ANF is divided into four phases. Please let us know if you have questions on any of these.
A thorough screening of medical history & assessment techniques will drive the disc application approach. It’s often not always where we feel the pain that is the cause of the problem – most likely these areas are a causative effect of a possible systemic underlying issue.
This is where ANF is different in the approach of finding out the whole history BEFORE the hands-on approach. This collection of information can often reveal other areas that require treatment or attention FIRST – before the localised site. It often helps to reduce the inflammatory response in the nervous system, thereby reducing the symptoms from the injured site. Think globally to treat locally! 😉
Once this is all determined, this sets up which discs to use where & applying them through our knowledge of anatomy allows us to hone in on the affected areas. Here we apply specific discs that have specific frequencies to the specific areas. Yep – it’s very specific and not at all ‘guesswork’. These discs work to reduce inflammation and hence, your pain. You may experience a few normal detox effects, like metallic taste in your mouth. Don’t worry – it’s a good sign! It tells us that your body is responding to the therapy. On each application, these discs are left on for up to 96 hours.
Once we enter stage two, the most common and serious inflammation and pain you were experiencing will have significantly improved. Yay! This means we’ll start applying fewer discs, and start targeting specific areas more that are still troubling you or are a root cause of the symptoms you’re experiencing.
By this stage, we’ll expect most of the inflammation throughout the body to have subsided – and the same for your pain! This means that your muscles and tissues will be on their way to proper regeneration, and optimal rehabilitation can take place. We guide you through listening to your body and taking care of yourself during this phase.
All your affected (painful) areas, and their root causes, have normalised – and you’re not experiencing any more pain. We are absolutely happy for you! Now’s the time to support your immune system and reduce the risk for new injuries by following our protocols – and improving your diet, lifestyle, sleep and exercise habits.
The rate at which you progress through the stages is very much dependant on the problems you’ve had, the length of time you’ve had them, and your lifestyle habits throughout the process. Don’t worry – we’ll guide you through everything you need to know and teach you how to get the best results from your ANF treatment.
You bet! If you’re ready to get started with ANF, or want to know if ANF can work for you, you can give us a call on 1300 FX FEET, send us a message through our Facebook page here, or book an appointment here. We can’t wait to get started on the journey to recovery and becoming pain-free with our patients!
