Drug-free pain relief.
Sooma Pain Therapy
Sooma Pain Therapy is a safe, drug-free and effective treatment option for chronic pain. A noninvasive brain stimulation technique is used to stimulate the areas of the brain that process pain so that symptoms of pain may be relieved. The treatment is always prescribed by a medical professional. The therapy consists of daily 20-minute sessions that can be done at a clinic or in the comfort of your own home per agreement with your healthcare provider. An effect is normally achieved in the third week of treatment. The treatment is painless and completely safe.
Do you or someone you care about suffer from Chronic Pain?
Sooma Pain Therapy is an effective treatment for chronic pain. The therapy itself is painless and involves no chemicals. It can be chosen either as a stand-alone treatment option and it is suitable for patients who do not respond to, or cannot tolerate pharmaceutical treatment. The therapy is also suitable as an add-on therapy along with other types of treatments, such as pharmaceuticals, without a risk for dangerous drug interactions.
Sooma Pain Therapy can be done at a clinic or in the comfort of your own home, per agreement with your healthcare provider. When done at home, there is no need to visit the clinic between the initial introduction to the treatment and the last treatment session.
What is Sooma Pain Therapy?
Sooma Pain Therapy is a noninvasive brain stimulation treatment for pain that has become chronic over time. The treatment has been scientifically proven to be effective for:
2. Chronic Neuropathic Pain.
A weak electrical current is delivered from a portable medical device to specific areas of the brain. This causes changes in the electrical signalling of the brain, which can lead to pain relief. One treatment takes 20 minutes and is repeated once per day for at least two weeks. During the session, you can sit back and relax, read a book or take part in various therapeutic activities.
The goal is to enhance communication between different brain areas that are responsible for pain processing and to support the function of pain inhibiting pathways that descend from the brain.
