A healthy blood circulatory system, also known as the cardiovascular system, is vital to one’s well-being. This system consists of the heart, arteries, veins and capillaries which transport oxygenated blood and nutrients to all parts of the body.

To attain cardiovascular well-being, External Counterpulsation (ECP) treatment is administered through three pairs of external inflatable cuffs that are applied around the lower legs, upper legs, and buttocks. These cuffs continuously inflate and deflate between the resting period of the heartbeat and increase blood flow to the heart. With ECP enhancing your blood circulatory system, heart-related problems can be avoided.

Chest pain, also known as angina, can be relieved with ECP. The heart muscle is able to acquire sufficient blood flow which directly translates to adequate oxygen levels. With low oxygen levels in the heart, the heart still may be able to function. However, you may experience angina (chest pain) whenever you carry out vigorous activities that demand a higher amount of oxygen as your heart is being exerted.

A common cardiovascular condition such as high blood pressure can also be avoided using ECP as the inflatable cuffs that inflate and deflate help with regulating blood flow which regulates blood pressure. High blood pressure shouldn’t be taken lightly as it can eventually damage your heart, blood vessels, and organs.

In addition, ECP can also help prevent a heart attack as well as stroke. A heart attack often occurs when the oxygen demand exceeds oxygen supply. However, ECP increases blood flow to the heart to boost oxygen supply and therefore reduces the risk of getting a heart attack. Likewise, ECP aids in supplying oxygen through the flow of oxygenated blood to the brain to lower your risk of having a stroke.

Understanding the risk factors associated with cardiovascular diseases is an important step to take to prevent yourself, or your loved ones, from becoming a statistic of the disease. To learn more about the many benefits and uses of ECP Treatment, contact us here.  

What is the Meridian System? 

According to Traditional Chinese Medicine, it is believed that every individual has a distribution network for the fundamental substances of Qi, Blood, and Body Fluid throughout the entire body. This internal distribution is known as the Meridian System and it makes up a giant web, linking different areas of the body together. 

Like the flow of river water in nature, the Meridians provide pathways for Qi (vital energy) to flow through. These pathways allow the circulation of energy, nutrients, and blood throughout the body.

External Counter Pulsation, or more commonly known as ECP, is a non-invasive treatment used to decrease the intensity and number of angina episodes. 

Approved by the Ministry of Health Malaysia and FDA, this non-surgical treatment is easy, safe and painless that provides long lasting results.

1.  How it is done

ECP treatment is administered through three pairs of external inflatable cuffs applied around the buttocks, upper legs and lower legs.

The cuffs around these parts continuously inflate and deflate between the resting period of the heartbeat. This is to increase the blood returning to the heart which helps provide more oxygen to its starved areas.

2. Benefits of ECP treatment

People undergoing the ECP treatment will definitely notice numerous benefits after undergoing the treatments. Among the benefits are an increase in oxygen supply for the heart and a decrease in chest pains. 

Other benefits from the ECP treatment are an improved EKG response to exercise and also increase in energy and exercise duration. 

3.  Who is eligible for ECP treatment?

However, not everyone is eligible for ECP treatment. Individuals are only eligible if they have had coronary artery bypass (CABG) or stents placed in the coronary arteries with ongoing angina. 

Individuals who have not had prior bypass or stenting but are suffering from angina are also qualified for treatment. 

For anyone looking for a non-invasive procedure to treat chest pains, look no further. Danai Wellness provides ECP treatment for those seeking to improve their health.
