The Bioneuro sigma Q technology it is NOT a Transcutaneous Electrical Nerve Stimulation (TENS) . The Tens being a Digital system and The Bioneuro an Analogue system ,having a variable pulse, working very deeply into the body aiding motor neuron and neuropeptide function, working with the Central and Peripheral nervous system.

Getfitstayfit Norfolk, being the only clinic in the Norwich Norfolk area, to have ”The Bioneuro Therapy System Sigma Q (ΣQ®)“ To aid clients with immediate or early intervention, when they have suffered the trauma of a Neuromusculoskeletal injury.
Steve has also attended the courses with John Holman and on the Therapy Massage System. Introducing this into the Clinic, showed to be a great advantage, this is a system that is being used in leading Spinal injury units. We used The Hydrotherm for our clients, because when they are in pain, this system makes it more comfortable for them. It will allow the client to lie on their back, with no pressure, on the painful area, without them having to keep changing position, at the same time allowing the therapist full access to the injured area. It has proved to be very effective.
I am first and foremost A Sports Massage practitioner voted SMA Therapist of the year 2015/16 my hands are my main tools.
I specialise in injury treatment so it needs more to get people back quicker and fully mobile. to do this I use combined Neuromuscular Techniques, the Hydrotherm massage system and The Bioneuro system, this is a tool that I do use in many ways, it can be used as a diagnostic, this means that I can see the exact muscles that are not firing as people often feel pain in one area but the injury may not be in that area it is all to do with Neurotransmission.
It also means it can get into deep damaged tissue that normal massage can not get into without causing further damage or pain, the Ultra sound selection is so useful for direct pinpoint treatment people come to me with muscular Soft Tissue injuries in most case’s quite sever.
My aim is to help everyday people get back to their lives quicker and Pain-free
