ONCE UPON A TIME THE ATHERMIA
Know the story: if Athens cries, Sparta does not laugh.
Today the whole world of Tecarterapists speaks of “Athermia”.
They love to fill their mouths with this word: “Athermia”.
Very few operators today have understood the practice that is nothing more than a precise and unique way of applying Indiba’s 448Khz radiofrequency, Tecartherapy ever since.
The problem lies in all of us who are always led to think that everything brown is chocolate. The principle of association is comfortable and who cares (all attached) to the real story.
When you have read what I have to tell you in my story, you will no longer need to go to the fortuneteller to ask for luck in applying for your sub-thermal work in the use of Tecartherapy.
The history of ATHERMIA begins with its meaning:
“Without temperature” is nothing more than a simple definition.
If you do not apply the athermia according to precise parameters, you only have a useful notion as a term to fill your mouth when you need to make yourself big in mastering a bit of a trick of the trade.
I start from here: until 2004 the Tecar was used only to warm up the muscles that became “soft” like the butter left in the sun, and the joints mobilized more easily.
Then I arrived.
They taught me that to understand the possibilities of applying Tecar, and it was necessary to simplify the application of the instrument at 3 operating levels:
- Low – athermia
Middle – homeothermia
High – hyperthermia
Today I can say that the simplification that served to sell more instruments led to trivialization.
It was 2005 when I was advised to read the scientific or pseudo information that was available to me to deepen my knowledge and be able to use it in the argument to support the use of the Tecar.
I often wondered why the lowest level of operation with Tecar was called athermic (without temperature) when I always felt the muscles I was treating under my hands warming up.
At the end of 2006, after a year of reading, analysis, bibliographic research, applications, observations and data collection, I had put together all the pieces of the puzzle that constituted a clear picture in my eyes:
The Tecar operating levels were to review.
They had always told me that in the acute and sub-acute phase, I had to apply the Tecar at a low operative level, the athermal one. Still, I always felt the temperature at the level of the epidermis which rose clearly and unequivocally, and I read necessary studies on applications of sub-doses – thermic conditions to biological cultures that grew in Petri slides irradiated at repeated cycles for 24 in a row and then more.
The most essential and also annoying aspect was that the result of the treatment in the acute phase was the pain and the lumbago of the subject of the shift deteriorated drastically.
Worse was when I was dealing with professional athletes of the race or cycling who then the next day was no longer able to perform at the same levels as the previous day.
With the professional cycling athletes, I learned a lot thanks to their sensitivity, and they always gave me essential feedback post-treatment.
The comparison with some masseurs and their availability finally gave me the inputs that were fundamental for the development of more precise, broader and more effective use of Tecartherapy.
With the Kenyan marathon runners, I worked so much and long enough that some particularly sensitive athletes made me understand that an athermal treatment at the end of a marathon allows the body to recover sooner.
During more than 2000 hours dedicated to the observation of the effects of what was called athermal application, I had built a treatment model by putting innovative applications and creating clinical cases that gave me so much satisfaction and a new idea of work.
It was 2007 when I finally “wandered” the effect of the application of athermia, which now gave me an immediate response to the lowering of all inflammatory expression:
the treated part appears “refreshed” the patient reports cold chills and the sensation of lightness pervades the newly worked body segment and a decrease in the oedema or reabsorption of the hematoma is evident.
It happens all the time I repeat the process.
It has such a striking effect that I would call it “miraculous”.
- You ask yourself:
- does this applicability of athermia have a validity limit?
- Does it always have a positive effect on symptoms such as pain, oedema, etc?
The answer is that to date, the only limit that decrees the failure of the immediate effect of athermia on the pain symptom is the structural one: a fracture, a fiscal hernia, a lesion.
No. Attention: the muscle injury is “bread for the Tecar”. Always. Immediately, in the immediate post-trauma.
But to describe this specific topic, I need another article.
From the beginning of 2008, then the Tecar arrived in Italy with a new screen that reported the values of the electrical parameters that are in play during the application. I began to read and write down the numbers I saw appearing crazy during my treatments.
By consuming lots of notebooks, I fill out thousands of sheets finishing ink of I don’t know how many pens. I noticed that the variation of the numbers had an order of direct relationship that repeated with the repetition of my tests in orders that I always recognized and that by now, I had coded:
Athermia was born that you do not feel on the skin or in the muscles. Still, the one that when there is acute pain resets it and seems to work miracles regenerates and restores energy to tired athletes or invested with inflammatory states.
Athermia as Vincenzo Lancini understands it is what works, the one that opens the way to critical therapeutic successes and that if you haven’t tried it, you don’t believe it.
Understanding the history of the athermal application of Tecar helps you first of all to turn on the brain and trigger the spark that the reasoning that everyone in the use of Tecar must be able to carry on.
When you apply Tecartherapy in athermal conditions in the immediate post-trauma or the immediate post-surgical phase, you resolve the most complex inflammatory states optimally.
I want to leave you a link to the first article I read many years ago: it opened up a world for me:
That of reasoning!
I recommend: read it.
I hope you can help as it helped me understand the mechanisms that regulate and differentiate the observation of in vitro phenomena in a laboratory and how complicated the validation process is in their application in clinical practice.
We keep in touch
