Circulation. The veins and arteries make up only 26% of our body’s blood vessels. Did you know the other 74% is made up of the tiny micro vessels known as capillaries? There are 74 thousand miles of capillaries in your body, and they are responsible for transporting oxygen to your cells and organs. When these micro vessels are not functioning optimally, the lack of oxygen and nutrients in your cells can be the core cause of significant chronic pain and disease throughout the body. The following videos demonstrate poor and optimal blood flow through these micro vessels.
Besides these videos, exercise, massage, hot baths, nutrition, acupuncture, and aromatherapy have also been used to aid in improving circulation and reducing pain.Video: Story describing how BEMER can help improve circulation (blood flow)

Subluxation (Misalignment). The body is built on a precise foundation; when one rafter is out of place, the whole house can come crashing down. The bones of your spine act like the building blocks that hold the house together, while the nerves act as the electrical system that supplies information and direction to control all functions. All signals within the nervous system, from the brain to the other cells, must be clear for the body to function optimally. Subluxation, or misalignment of the bones, creates tension on the nerves, obscuring the signals and leading to the gradual erosion of the body’s function, often coupled with pain.The connection of the nervous system to the various symptoms and body signals you may be experiencing

Mobilization. Muscle tightness can obstruct blood flow to your muscles, causing tension and pain. When muscles are restricted the biomechanics are often out of alignment. Good mechanics are necessary to absorb the forces of gravity and handle daily activities. Exercise is great, but if you are in pain, exercising could be like driving your car with the tires out of alignment.
