How quickly will I notice results with Neufit?
It is very common for most people to notice significant improvement after the first session.
How many sessions will I need?
Your specific injury, age and a multitude of other factors will determine how many treatments will be needed. We look at 3 stages of progression (1. Rehab, 2. Fitness, 3. Performance). Typically once the rehabilitation process is complete, its highly recommended to go to the fitness progression, which will further protect you from future injuries. Typically there is no one even without injury that wouldn’t benefit from at least 10 sessions.
How often should I come for Neufit Sessions?
The typical recommendation is 2 to 3 times per week. Many people start with 1 time a week and gradually work up to 2 to 3 times per week, this is highly dependent on the individuals response. There are special occasions where one can come up to 4 to 5 times per week, but most do well at 2 times a week.
What should I wear?
You should wear shorts and a loose fitting t-shirt, ideally. Many people find it easier to bring shorts and a t-shirt with them and change into regular clothes if they need to go back to work.
Is this the same as traditional Electrical Muscle Stimulation or TENS?
Neufit uses a specific electrical waveform that mimics our own body’s central nervous system signal, unlike other electrical devices. It uses a direct pulsed current which is very different than an alternating current which other devices use. Not only are those foreign to the body in terms of signaling, they create co-contraction which encourages pathological motor patterns. While they may improve blood flow, they are in no way similar. This technology helps to promote proper communication of the nervous system throughout the body, reducing pain and enhancing recovery faster than any other modality currently offered. This specific technology doesn’t replace the natural processes but rather enhances and supports them to allow for proper neurological signaling and communication. This in turn accelerates the healing process, improves muscular function and strength, stops pain and builds muscle.
The waveform mimics our body’s own central nervous system signaling which allows for an accurate assessment and scan of each muscles functioning state. This allows for the discovery of muscles that are being limited, governed or blocked due to improper and pathological neurological signaling leading to pain, weakness, compensatory patterns, poor healing and injury. The waveform then re-establishes communication removing these inhibitory processes which allows for dramatic improvement in overall muscular functioning leading to very fast pain relief and improved performance.
How quickly will I notice results with acupuncture?
You should notice improvement after the first session. Acupuncture is also accumulative and just like any modality or therapeutic intervention a single treatment will not fix everything. Acupuncture, while one of the most effective and underrated natural modalities, is not magic. While the results may seem magical at times considering one may have tried everything else without much improvement, it simply leverages the innate healing capacity every human possesses naturally. It stimulates your body’s internal physiological pathways to promote healing and regain homeostasis. Most of this is achieved via the nervous system through specific combinations and placements of needles on the body, which was derived mathematically.
Does acupuncture have anything to do with energy or voodoo?
Acupuncture has nothing to do with “energy” but due to mistranslations it has created a false understanding in the West. Acupuncture can be understood or likened to a mathematical model where abstract terms which are not real (similar to math) are used to map the body. Then specific combinations of needles and placements are used to help reprogram or create change, similar to computer programming. A little known fact: the basis for all modern computing was derived from the I-Ching which is the basis of where Chinese Medicine is derived. The perspective of Chinese Medicine is closer to an engineer who takes a mathematical understanding rather than a biomedical one. It’s an entirely different paradigm of looking at the human body. The needles interact with the nervous system, which controls the whole body, and is the reason it can be used to treat such a wide array of conditions.
How often should I come for acupuncture treatments?
It’s wise to have a minimum 2 to 3 treatments per week, 4 or 5 treatments if your schedule allows and depending on the your condition.
We believe in being open and honest about the importance of frequency in acupuncture treatments. Many clinics won’t explain the importance of needing to come multiple times a week to increase the efficacy and save you money overall. While many practitioners understand this principle they revert to the one time per week which has become customary in the United States. While one time per week for health maintenance works great, this doesn’t apply to both acute and chronic issues, especially longstanding ones. The customary once a week will work but it will end up requiring many more treatments and costing you overall much more in the long run. See example above on this page for a more detailed understanding.
What should I wear?
It’s recommended that you wear loose fitting clothing that allows for access to at least the knee and elbow region.
Do the needles hurt?
The needles are very thin and many people feel minimal to no discomfort. In fact, over 30 acupuncture needles would be equivalent to 1 hypodermic needle which is used for a typical injection at the hospital.
Are acupuncture needles safe?
Acupuncture needles are made from stainless steel and medically classified for single use. Each needle is individually sterilized to prevent infection.
What should I expect after treatment?
All acupuncture treatments take advantage of the natural healing ability of the body. Insertions of needles reprogram your body to take advantage of, and direct, this ability.
It is natural for a condition to reemerge between treatments, but it will progressively improve in response to consecutive treatments sessions. The time for recovery from a condition will vary between individuals and conditions.
A small percentage of patients may experience an aggravation of a condition. This is an indication your body is responding to the acupuncture treatment. This aggravation resolves within a 24 to 36 hours. After this period the condition normally progresses to a lessor level than it was prior to the treatment.
