Curative treatment Ac-tive®
This unique method for the treatment of nerve paralysis was created by combining medical acupuncture, which has a tradition going back more than 50 years in the Czech Republic, and knowledge of physical medicine, which used in rehabilitation medicine.
The method consists of activating acupuncture pathways using needles applied to acupuncture points. Electrical pulses are then introduced into these needles to stimulate points in the paralyzed parts of the body.
How is the currative treatment applied?
You will be diagnosed first and then treatment will take place. The intensity of the current depends on the subjective perception of each individual patient. Thus, the intensity of the stimulation of acupuncture paths and points is not determined by the physician, but is determined by you. This method will ensure maximum comfort and a pleasant course of treatment.
