How does INDIBA Therapy work?
INDIBA is an electromagnetic current which is delivered to the body via electrodes at a radiofrequency of 448kHz. This current gradually increases the treated tissue temperature. The temperature rise triggers the body’s natural regeneration, repair and defence responses. For the current frequency of 448 kHz other effects can also be obtained without heating the body’s tissues, demonstrated via molecular research; bio-stimulation.
Is there a limit of sessions?
There is no limit; the number of sessions will depend on the disorder or condition to treat and its severity. You can have maintenance treatments to prolong the results if you have a chronic problem or you want to benefit from more lasting effects.
