Our wellness facility, through the use of ECP (External Counter Pulsation) Therapy, works to improve the circulation to every organ in your body which in turn, helps restore your physiology and optimal function. This long over-looked medical device can offer relief from a myriad of conditions, but it is primarily an FDA-approved treatment for refractory angina. Over the years, it has been found to also address other types of heart disease – hypertension, arrhythmias, cardiomyopathies, congestive heart failure (CHF), and myocarditis – and a long list of other medical conditions, including COPDkidney disorders, ischemic strokesdepression, mild vascular dementia and Alzheimer’s Diseaseischemic eye diseases, and even erectile dysfunction.   External counterpulsation (EECP) therapy is chest pain therapy that is most commonly recommended for people who are not candidates for stints (too many small blockages) and candidates or are in eligible for bypass surgery (heart is too weak.)

How does it work?

ECP therapy uses wraps, similar to blood pressure cuffs, to improve your blood flow. The cuffs are hydraulic and connected to your heart using a 3-lead EKG monitor. It is painless, noninvasive, and akin to passive exercise. In fact, you get six times more oxygen to your heart during an ECP treatment than you do running uphill on a treadmill for an hour! The treatment increases circulatory nitric oxide, which dilates your arteries and increases vascular endothelial growth factor (VEGF). 

VEGF stimulates your body to grow new blood vessels. In the heart, the new blood vessels created are collateral circulation around blocked blood vessels.

Our technicians are trained in the technology and can answer all your questions.
