This is a type of therapy that uses the energy of acoustic waves. The therapy is applied with a handheld applicator that contains compressed air. The compressed air is converted into energy that is applied by sharp vibrations to the painful tissue. The energy is absorbed by the body and promotes healing. It is not meant to be a comfortable therapy. It should feel like 6/10 on the pain scale but only lasts a couple of minutes.
