What is BCR-Therapie? How does it work?
BCR-Therapie stands for Biological Cell-Regulation Therapy. It is a new ‘microcurrent based’ pain management technology developed and patented in Germany. The technology is an effort to go beyond microcurrent to produce a replica energy that closely resembles our body’s own energy (Chi). This is then applied to the pain affected area which provides the energy (ATP) for cells to regenerate at a much faster rate. Regenerated, healthier cells naturally heal the source of pain.
BCR-Therapie is specifically developed for sports injuries where quick reduction from symptomatic pain and speedy permanent recovery from physical disabilities are extremely important. It has proven to give instant pain relief and healing to most pain conditions.
The ability to regenerate cells at a much faster rate also gives BCR-Therapie an aesthetic effect. Quick regeneration of cells can effectively reduce wrinkles and increase natural collagen production. Clinic-Master medical devices have built in programs for removing pimples, softening acne scars and lifting loose skin.
There are many Microcurrent systems on the market. What is the difference between other equipment and BCR-Therapie equipment?
Microcurrent equipment range from hundreds of dollars to tens of thousands of dollars. They are not all equal. The way electrical current affects the tissue and the results that are achieved, are completely dependent on how sophisticated the engineering is between the power source and the output accessory. The BCR-Therapie equipment is a completely computerized diagnosis and treatment system that uses the most modern microprocessor technology.
During a treatment session, the BCR Therapie equipment automatically regulates its dispensed currencies (amperage + frequency + current + polarity) irrespective of the skin’s resistance. The galvanic separation of each of the four channels and the measurement of the dispensed currencies ensure all treatment requirements are fully met under adverse patient conditions, a feature not found in cheaper equipment. Another distinguishing feature of the BCR-Therapie equipment is its 60 built-in programs that help standardize treatment results that reduce dependence on the skills of the therapists. During the treatment session the equipment regularly diagnoses deviations in impedance from optimum parameters and switches to suitable programs that move the impedance towards the optimum.
These features that makes the system more reliable and the results more consistent, are not found in typical devices.
Technically 600 Micro Amperes is the base line. Above 600 micro amperes is TENS and below 600 micro amperes is microcurrent. Many of the existing Microcurrent systems are actually TENS equipment that can regulate and lower electricity level to below 600 Micro Amperes. This equipment can be called Microcurrent equipment. However, to work best at the cellular level, the electricity levels need to be much lower. It is technologically more difficult to bring down and sustain electricity at extremely low levels with minimum fluctuation. The success in this area is a unique achievement of BCR-Therapie. (BCR-Therapie is now dropping the term Microcurrent from its equipment description.)
What is the difference between TENS system and Microcurrent?
TENS system produces electricity in milli-amperes. The natural energy in the body is at micro-amperes. Which means the electricity level produced by TENS system is 1,000 times higher than the body’s natural energy. Therefore TENS system is not biologically compatible to work at the cellular level with the body. TENS can block the pain path temporarily and it is also able to provide some stimulation. But since it cannot work at the cellular level it cannot heal the source of pain.

How does BCR-Therapie work so fast on pain?
Pain problems always correlate to a disruption in the flow of the body’s natural energy. This disruption adversely affects cellular metabolism. When the brain realises this, we experience pain in that affected area.
BCR-Therapie produces and applies energy at the affected area that closely resembles this missing energy. The immediate increase in ATP production, protein synthesis and waste dispersal, helps to regenerate the cells and to enhance the conductivity for a smoother flow of energy. At the completion of the first session, these improvements help to restore the flow of the body’s natural energy over the area which re-educates the brain’s realisation of the trauma that results in a sudden decrease in inflammation and pain. The re-establishment of energy flow accelerates the healing process. This principle is similar to Acupuncture.
Is BCR-Therapie more suited for acute or chronic pain conditions?
BCR-Therapie works well on both acute and chronic pain conditions. In acute pain condition the body is still in the process of trying to heal the problem. BCR-Therapie accelerates the body’s healing process. Often a single session brings a lot of improvement. More sessions will speed up recovery.
In most chronic pain conditions the body had been unable to heal the problem over a long time and gradually adjusts to that condition. BCR-Therapie alters the condition and gives pain relief. However, it is normal for the body to resist the change and force things back to the prior state. The pain then gradually returns. Chronic pain conditions usually require several sessions at close intervals of daily or every other day, to provide a cumulative effect with increased strength in order to force the body to accept and adjust to the new condition. The pain relief then lasts longer.
What makes BCR-Therapie suitable for sports injuries?
Sports therapies are unique in that results are time sensitive and must be seen almost instantly. The speed of pain reduction and recovery from physical disabilities make BCR-Therapie ideal for sports therapies. Special built in programs for muscle toning, muscle spasm, tendon and ligaments and whole body regeneration further enhance the benefits in of sports therapies.
Why is BCR-Therapie suitable for older people with arthritis, dementia, Parkinson's, stroke etc.?
BCR-Therapie has the ability to quickly lower inflammation. With repeat sessions it also provides resistance to inflammation that helps arthritis greatly. The reduction in pain and slowing of further deterioration, can bring about a life-changing difference to arthritis patients. There is a specific program for stimulating nerve cells in the brain. This is believed to help dementia and Parkinson’s patients. The same therapy is also a great help against insomnia and stress.
Stroke patients can use the same program to stimulate nerve cells in the brain as well as whole body stimulation for quicker recovery from paralysis or other physical disabilities. There are also special programs for improving muscle movements of the throat and mouth area to improve speech and swallowing.
Is BCR-Therapie appropriate for bed ridden patients like paralysed accident victims or elderly and ailing persons?
It is easy to apply on bed-ridden patients and completely harmless when applied for long periods of time. It works without the patient feeling it.
For very old or ailing persons, the whole body regeneration and pain programs help to keep them healthy and positive.
Will BCR Therapie work on migraines? Does BCR Therapie lessen the pain temporarily? Do you treat during the occurrence of a migraine or can you treat to prevent future migraines?
For migraines, BCR-Therapie mainly brings down the level of inflammation. With several sessions, it is able to build resistance to inflammation. Results improve with the number of sessions.
For slipped disc, if there's nerve impingement, how does BCR-Therapie work to correct the structural problem? If there's a compression on the spine, how does BCR Therapie work?
Although nerve impingement is believed to cause the pain in slipped disc cases, the mere existence of nerve impingement need not necessarily cause pain. There needs to be an additional trauma to trigger the initial pain. This trauma incident gets trapped in the cellular memory. This memory is strengthened by further incidences of the same trauma. The pain then becomes more frequent and more severe.
BCR-Therapie helps bring down the level of inflammation in the affected area and relaxes the muscles around the area that result in instant pain relief. Several applications at close intervals provide a cumulative effect on cellular regeneration. These efforts gradually re-educate the cellular memory. Slipped disc pain then becomes less frequent and will require a stronger trauma to trigger it. Thereafter if that part of the body is managed gently, taking particular care to avoid the same trauma from happening again, the patient can live without experiencing much pain in the future although the structural problem remains. BCR-Therapie will not be an alternative to surgery in very severe cases.
If there’s a metal implant, does BCR Therapie still work? Will the metal affect the efficiency of the treatment?
It is perfectly okay to use BCR-Therapie over metal implants.
How does BCR Therapie treat frozen shoulder? Roughly how many treatments are needed?
In frozen shoulder cases, BCR-Therapie helps to reduce inflammation. Slight improvement in pain and mobility can be seen after the first session and after every other session. Usually 7 to 15 sessions or slightly more are needed to treat frozen shoulder.
How does BCR Therapie work on arthritis? Does it reduce the inflammation or can it also cure arthritis?
BCR-Therapie brings down inflammation, and after several sessions establishes a resistance to inflammation. Though it cannot cure arthritis, it is effective in reducing pain and slowing down further deterioration.
How effective is BCR Therapie on asthma? What does it actually do?
Asthma treatments are applied around the lungs. It reduces inflammation and increases lung capacity.
Can BCR-Therapie treat kidney failures?
BCR-Therapie is not known to be a treatment for kidney failure. It is a treatment for pain and to speed up recovery from tissue damage. However, it has seen to be effective for Oedema. Therefore more study is needed to ascertain if it helps improve kidney function.
Can BCR-Therapie treat cancer patients?
BCR-Therapie is not known to be a treatment for cancer. It is becoming common to use BCR-Therapie to complement chemo and radiation therapies to mitigate their side effects by providing regeneration for the body.
Does BCR-Therapie help fractures?
The application of BCR-Therapie also regenerates bone cells thereby speeding up the healing of fractures.
How would BCR-Therapie help a sinus infection?
BCR-Therapie brings down inflammation and after several sessions establishes resistance to inflammation. This gives tremendous relief.
Why is BCR Therapie good for beauty therapy? How does it work on the face for lifting and toning, and on acne scars?
The ability to regenerate cells at a much faster rate also gives BCR-Therapie an aesthetic effect. Quick regeneration of cells can effectively reduce wrinkles and increase natural collagen production. Clinic-Master medical devices have built in programs for removing pimples, softening acne scars and tightening loose skin.
Does BCR-Therapie help prevent future pimple breakouts? How is it against pigmentation and freckles?
BCR-Therapie is unlikely to be able to prevent future pimple break outs. BCR Face Therapy is more for damage control to treat scars from acne. It is proven to be very effective on acne scars. The speed of progress for scars depends upon factors like the age of the scar.
BCR-Therapie being a natural therapy, enhances the body’s natural restorative vitality. Pigmentation and freckles both being naturally occurring as well, cannot be removed by a natural process. Some people may see a lightening of their pigmentation or freckles after a few BCR Face Therapy sessions, but some people may not.
How does BCR-Therapie help improve eye bags, dark circles and tired eyes?
Quick regeneration and stimulation of cells help strengthen and tighten facial muscles. The effectiveness goes beyond skin level. Benefits are seen in healthier looking eyes.
What are the side effects of BCR-Therapie? Are there any adverse reactions?
There have been no side effects recorded for microcurrent therapy, except for a detoxification reaction. Microcurrent therapy increases cell metabolism and removes long-stored waste products so quickly that there may be a detoxification reaction after treatment. Some people have a similar reaction after a massage, but the reaction after microcurrent therapy is stronger because it does so much more in a much shorter time. Side effects may include, in rare cases, mild nausea, fatigue and drowsiness. If side effects occur at all, they are very minimal, transient, and can be easily mitigated by being well hydrated before and after the treatment. Although there are no other side effects recorded with its use, microcurrent therapy is not recommended for patients with pacemakers, pregnant women and small children below five years of age.
Is the BCR Therapie device expensive?
Most of the medical devices available today are built on existing technologies. BCR-Therapie is a completely new, patented technology – only produced by the developer. Therefore the research and development costs are extremely high.
Presently BCR-Therapie is perhaps the only technology on the market that gives instant results for pain problems; and probably the best technology for fast cell regeneration.
Despite the technological advancement, instant and consistent results, full German-make, commercial ‘Hospital Grade’ production, and 5-year warranty, the price of BCR-Therapie equipment is reasonable.
What is the price of BCR-Therapie equipment?
