Neural Therapy is popular in German and Spanish speaking countries yet little known in the English speaking world. The practice of neural therapy is based on the belief that energy flows freely through the body of a healthy person. The key concept in Neural Therapy is that any scar, traumatised, infected or dysfunctional tissue may create health problems at distant locations in the body. Injections of anesthetic such as procaine and lidocaine may be given into nerves, acupuncture points, glands, scars, and trigger points to restore proper energy flow and cell membrane potentials that allow for proper signaling within the body. A course of treatment may involve one or more injections spread over several weeks..
