Elosan therapy aims to alleviate chronic pain – especially soft-tissue rheumatic pain and diffuse, radiating pain – by applying an electrostatic charge to the whole body. The treatment is done upon the instructions of a physician. It is done with the patient standing up in the Elosan Cabin. The person is charged and discharged several times over the course of four minutes. The charge can be felt on the skin and it can be seen through bristling of the hairs on the body.
