ATP Resonance BioTherapy

ATP Resonance BioTherapy™ is a cutting edge technique for treating pain that uses low-level electrical current. The current is delivered to specified parts of the body in an attempt to relieve the pain or condition we are treating. Frequencies have a direct effect on our physical bodies and can almost instantaneously change the chemistry and then improve symptoms. For example, there are frequencies clinically proven to reduce pain and inflammation and others that improve circulation. It’s similar to writing a computer program for our bodies to heal. There are 100’s of frequencies that we use to reduce inflammation and pain.
