Neural Therapy was originally developed in Germany by the Huneke brothers. It involves the injection of Procaine or Lidocaine, common local anesthetics, into various but very specific areas. Neural Therapy is based on the theory that trauma can produce long-standing disturbances in the electrochemical function of tissues.
Injection can be applied for all types of tissues affected by trauma, such as scars, nerves or a cluster of nerves called ganglions. A correctly administered Neural Therapy injection can often instantly and lastingly resolve chronic long standing illness and chronic pain.
