Hyaluronic Acid (HA) is a viscous oil produced by the body to lubricate our joints, heal wounds, and hold the structure of our cellular matrix. It also binds up to 1,000 times its weight in water to keep our skin soft, smooth and supple. It is found in high concentrations in our skin, corneas, cartilage and synovial fluids.
As we age, our bodies produce diminishing amounts of this vital oil, which contributes to inflammation of our joints, harder and drier cartilage, and skin which becomes more leathery in its appearance. Lower levels of HA also cause slower healing of wounds and injuries. In addition to being affected by the aging process, HA can be diminished by stress and inflammation.
Infratonic Therapy has been shown to increase the production of Hyaluronic Acid within our cells, reducing inflammation and residual cellular trauma, promoting total body healing and vitality. Dr. Ronald J. Reigel performed controlled research on the inflamed hocks of 10 standard thoroughbred horses, concluding that exposure to Infratonic Therapy increases HA in as little as one week, with profound increases after only one month.
