Frequently asked questions

How does the application of Physical Vascular Therapy affect performance and endurance?

Since with regularly applied Physical Vascular Therapy the body regenerates faster, training units can be increased (increasing extent, also intensive units are better coped with). Thus, the endurance performance increases by more frequent workouts with proper exercise intensity.
Another advantage is the improvement of the immune system (less training cancellations, better training quality) and better oxygen utilization by optimizing the metabolism.

How does Physical Vascular Therapy influence my strength?

Although not directly, there is an indirect effect. The recovery after heavy weight training is accelerated, thereby, one can train again sooner. In this sense, Physical Vascular Therapy also has positive effects on strength. In addition, the risk of injury decreases because the muscles and connective tissue are positively influenced by the regular use of Physical Vascular Therapy. Before power training, Physical Vascular Therapy can be used as a warm-up support (improved circulation).

Before the start, I'm always very nervous. Can Physical Vascular Therapy help with that, too?

Yes, it can. Stressful situations, such as occur during stage fright or anxiety (e.g. fear of dentists), can be influenced by Physical Vascular Therapy in that a calming and relaxing effect is exerted on the vegetative (autonomic nervous system). A relevant scientific study was able to demonstrate this.

Before the start, I'm more apathetic. Can Physical Vascular Therapy help with that, too?

Due to the improvement of blood circulation and thus oxygen and nutrient supply, the highest possible "activation" of all metabolic processes, both pertaining to the nervous system as well as the specific muscles, is possible in a healthy athlete. A particular positive is that no pulse or blood pressure increase takes place.

Does Physical Vascular Therapy impact my coordinative skills (reflexes, coordination, anticipation, equilibrium, differentiation)?

Because the metabolism of the body is optimized by regular BEMER application, this can have a positive effect on the coordination skills, since the body fatigues much later and concentration lasts longer.

I suffer from myogelosis. Can I use Physical Vascular Therapy against that?

Yes, please apply the Base Plan with the full application module B.BODY and the local applicaton module B.SPOT or B.PAD with P3 directly to the hardened muscle.

Which intensity level should I choose after an intense endurance workout or competition? Is there a difference in regeneration after weight training?

From theoretical considerations, it seems level 3 with the B.BODY for all intensive training (including weight training) makes the most sense, since the body is "sour" and the lactate and high CK levels should be reduced as quickly as possible. Before training or competition high intensities can be used.

Does Physical Vascular Therapy replace a sports massage?

No. But those who apply BEMER regularly, need to get massages less often because BEMER can positively affect muscle tone and optimizes the metabolism of the body.

After a sports injury, I try to keep the swelling at a minimum. Physical Vascular Therapy improves blood flow. Would that not increase the swelling?

No. Physical Vascular Therapy supports the body's own processes, i.e. improvement of blood circulation and improvement of the blood distribution as required should not be confused with an increase of bleeding from a wound (vessel). Rather, Physical Vascular Therapy ensures the optimization of physiological processes such as rapid wound closure (clotting) and initiation of the healing phase (activation / optimization of repair mechanisms). Furthermore, the regulation of secretion of synovial fluid in joint injuries can be positively affected and thus an anti-edematous effect can be directly achieved.
In case of injury, it makes sense to locally apply the B.SPOT or B.PAD as soon as possible - even several times in a row, depending on individual tolerance.
This does not affect the recommended twice daily application of the whole-body application accordings to the Base Plan therapy.

After the initial application of Physical Vascular Therapy I often experienced calf cramps. Is there an explanation for this?

Due to the metabolic activation, muscle cramps associated with the application of Physical Vascular Therapy may indicate the presence of latent mineral deficiencies (especially magnesium and calcium). By supplying the corresponding minerals, this phenomenon can be counteracted effectively and very swiftly. Has one drunk a sufficient amount of fluids (water, tea) beforehand? What kind of excercise was performed? At what time of the day did the problem occur?

Does Physical Vascular Therapy help with muscle fever (DOMS)? What is the effect in this case?

Muscle soreness should generally be avoided, since it is a damaging of the muscle or swelling of muscle cells (small micro cracks). If you do get it, Physical Vascular Therapy is highly recommended because it has been demonstrated to accelerate the healing of injuries. Scientific studies have shown that Physical Vascular Therapy supports accelerated wound healing. In this case, the full body application according to Base Plan plus additional local applications with P3 is sensible.

Is Physical Vascular Therapy a legal means of boosting performance, or could one say that it is a kind of doping?

Since Physical Vascular Therapy only supports the body's natural processes without adding any means, it does not count as doping. A Performance enhancement is possible, but only with good quality training.
