Bio-Thermal Therapy® Q & A

What is Bio-Thermal Therapy®? 

In continuous clinical development for over a century, this therapy has been proven safe and effective and utilizes different types of electro-therapies and thermal applications to circulate blood and improve digestive, respiratory, hormonal, and cardiovascular function.

Your doctor performs a comprehensive evaluation of your body and symptoms before determining which of the natural physical therapies is most beneficial. The treatment is then specially applied for your needs.

Bio-Thermal Therapy® treatments, which normally last around 40 minutes, are relaxing and noninvasive.

What are the different Bio-Thermal Therapy® treatment options?

There are various biologically beneficial electrotherapy devices used in Bio-Thermal Therapy®; your Portland Clinic of Holistic Health doctor may recommend one or a combination for the optimal benefit. Options include:


Diathermy is a type of 'physical therapy antibiotic' for patients suffering from more  symptoms such as cold, flu, or strep throat, or an infection, such as sinusitis, pneumonia, or relating to the bladder.

Diathermy is also beneficial for patients with digestive disorders like irritable bowel syndrome, Crohn's disease, or ulcerative colitis, as well as for back, muscle or joint pain, and fractures. 

The process of receiving the therapy feels like a relaxing velvety warmth on your body.

Sine wave

This muscle stimulator is for basic physical therapy needs like reducing swelling and pain, and improving circulation and muscle function. It also treats digestive and immune system conditions.

During the treatment the medical assistant following the directions of the doctor places the sine wave pads on your back to stimulate spinal nerves that activate digestion and strengthen digestive function. You may feel a gentle tingling sensation and pull in your abdomen but this therapy is painless. 

High frequency

This frequently used tool works as a gentle cellular massage and treats respiratory, bladder, and prostate infections as well as sprained ankles, broken bones, and asthma. The antimicrobial current emitted, in a treatment similar to an ultrasound, feels like a mild tingling and warmth.

The process oxygenates the blood, which speeds the healing time of injured joints, tissue, and bones. It is also anti-inflammatory, which helps to reduce pain, PMS cramps and ovarian cyst pain, relax muscle spasms, improve prostate issues, and heal fibroids and other types of tumors. 

Mineral infrared therapy

Mineral infrared therapy (MIR) is a form of infrared, therapeutic heat to treat inflammation, ease pain, and improve cell growth, metabolism, and balance the nervous system. 

The MIR lamp generates safe heat with a special mineral plate that emits electromagnetic waves. This treatment improves the body’s healing abilities by interacting with the body’s natural minerals with those of the MIR heat wave. 

Galvanic current

This gentle tingling current is helpful in softening scars, slowing down bleeding, speeding up healing time in stomach ulcers, and effectively reducing pain. It can soften also shrink hemorrhoids and swollen prostate glands. 

The clinic delivers a special form of galvanic developed in Paris: Bi-Ocular Transcerebral Iontophoresis which has been found useful in programs  for memory loss, dementia, Parkinson’s disease, and other neurological disorders.
