What is Fango-Therapy Healing Mud?
Fango Therapy Healing Mud first gained popularity in Europe in the early 18th century where it was and still is extremely popular to treat musculoskeletal and skin conditions.
So….what is it? (Fango The Italian word for Mud) is volcanic clay filled with powerful minerals which soak into the skin and muscle. This Therapeutic mud is matured or ripened in natural mineral water. The maturing process for each mud may be slightly different, but generally involves the oxidation and reduction of the mud over a period up to twelve months long Fango Therapy Healing Mud contains: Silicon, Iron, Calcium, Sodium, Magnesium, Zirconium, Potassium, Carbon Dioxide, Phosphorus, Manganese, Strontium, Barium, Oxide, Lead, Chromium, and Zinc Oxide.
Fango Therapy Healing Mud is a powerful alternative to using painful injections or other medications for treating bodily aches & pains. This combination of matured minerals which are naturally derived in proximity to volcanoes and hot springs has proven to have therapeutic effects on the body. Fango treatments have successfully been used in the following treatments: pain relief for arthritis, osteoarthritis, rheumatoid arthritis, endocrine imbalance, immune disorders, fibromyalgia, muscular pain, pulmonary tuberculosis, bronchitis, acne, dermatitis, psoriasis, chronic dry skin, and scars.
At Nova, we mix the Fango Mud with water derived from the Sedona Mountain tops to ensure the minerals can stay its truest form. (Warmly) It is applied to the body in long strokes with a mud brush. When the application process is complete, we line the body with a silver lining, followed by cherry seed pillows and hot packs. The heat from the cherry pillows & hot packs allow the body to properly absorb the minerals. It is absorbed at muscular level, providing the body with and skin with an increase of circulation. It also decreases oxidative stress on the body and decreasing inflammation. While the minerals are penetrating skin-deep, our experienced therapist works on other parts of the body. After 20 minutes of the Fango-Healing Mud application, it is then removed with hot towels. The therapist then proceeds to work on the area while the muscle is warmed up, relieving you of the aches and pains!
Celluma uses the application of Light Emitting Diodes (LEDs) for therapeutic benefits. It aids in muscularskeletal conditions, enhances cellular metabolism, accelerates the repair and replenishment of damaged skin cells, as well as stimulates the production of collagen -the foundation of a healthy and smooth skin.
The Celluma is a low-level light energy device based on NASA technology and FDA Cleared to treat many musculoskeletal and skin conditions. light energy is emitted from a flexible and shape-taking light array panel, absorbed at the surface of the skin to re-establish normal cellular health and function. Celluma’s patented delivery system emits three specific wavelengths of modulated light controlled by proprietary software algorithms. The benefit of using three different wavelengths is that light absorbing molecules use the various wavelengths as a signaling mechanism for different cellular processes. For example, the various wavelengths and the red, blue and infrared lights reduce inflammation, stimulate collagen production, and some kill bacteria, while others enhance localized circulation.
Patented, pulsed-wave technology controlled by proprietary software algorithms add to the applicability of the Celluma. It is a polychromatic device that delivers blue (465nm), red (640) and infrared (880) light energy simultaneously to safely treat a wide variety of conditions easily and affordably. Its unique flexible design and large light panel facilitates effective energy absorption by tissue and molds closely to the body to treat a wide variety of ailments and skin conditions. Its flexibility affords previously considered “awkward” areas such as elbows, shoulders or ankles to be treated with ease. There are no known adverse effects to either practitioner or client/ patient. Compared to low-level light therapy delivered by certain lasers, there is no harmful thermal effect to tissue and no danger to the eye. This makes the Celluma a viable, safe, and affordable alternative to cold lasers which have similar indications for use. As a Class II Medical device, the Celluma can be used to alternatively or adjunctively treat patients/clients and optimize outcomes. Based on scientific research pioneered by NASA, the Celluma is a specialized light energy device FDA Cleared to treat: Inflammatory Acne, Muscle and Joint Pain, Arthritis, Muscle, and Tissue Tension, Muscle Spasm.
