Get The Blood Flow­ing At The Cir­cu­la­tion Sta­tion

Riverbank News - - THE RIVERBANK NEWS - BY VIRGINIA STILL vstill@oak­dale­leader.com

A new busi­ness opened up on Aug. 1 in down­town River­bank called The Cir­cu­la­tion Sta­tion to help pro­vide Pulsed Elec­tro­mag­netic Field (PEMF) ther­apy that helps reg­u­late the flow of en­ergy in the body.

Af­ter a few rear end col­li­sion-type auto ac­ci­dents which caused Virginia Whit­worth some chronic back is­sues, she de­cided to come out of re­tire­ment and help oth­ers that may be ex­pe­ri­enc­ing chronic pain, chronic ill­ness, im­mune dis­or­ders, blood sugar is­sues, joint dis­com­fort, sports in­juries, car­dio­vas­cu­lar prob­lems, low en­ergy and stress.

“The doc­tor told me even­tu­ally you are go­ing to get arthri­tis in your back and ex­pe­ri­ence that pain and I didn’t be­lieve it un­til this last win­ter,” said Whit­worth. “This last win­ter I hap­pened to find a place that had this pulse, elec­tro­mag­netic field ther­apy and I didn’t have a clue what it was.”

Walk­ing into the build­ing and hear­ing all about it she still had some doubts that it was pos­si­ble to un­dergo such a treat­ment and have some pain re­lief. Although she had great hes­i­ta­tion she de­cided to give it a try and af­ter six weeks, Whit­worth was able to stop tak­ing ibupro­fen that she had been tak­ing on a daily ba­sis.

“So it re­duced the in­flam­ma­tion of my arthri­tis,” added Whit­worth. “At that point I be­came a be­liever. It is pulse elec­tro­mag­netic field ther­apy and what it does is it en­velops you with this elec­tro­mag­netic field and that in turn opens up the mi­cro­cir­cu­la­tion. With free flow­ing blood through your body it al­lows things to heal nat­u­rally. It self reg­u­lates your body.”

Whit­worth ex­plained that the treat­ment is non­in­va­sive, pain­less, and ther­apy is only eight min­utes long and de­pen­dent on the de­gree of the in­jury or ill­ness it could be three to five times a week.

Whit­worth was born and raised in Modesto but has called River­bank home for the past 10 years. Open­ing a busi­ness was a bit in­tim­i­dat­ing for her since she had never had a busi­ness be­fore and was re­tired, but the thought of help­ing peo­ple and giv­ing them some re­lief was more im­por­tant than any fears she may have had about the en­deavor.

“It is not a cure but it re­lieves symp­toms,” stated Whit­worth. “If you are ex­pe­ri­enc­ing chronic pain any re­lief is ap­pre­ci­ated. It is a re­lief; that is why I de­cided to do this. There are oc­ca­sional times that I twist my back but I know now that if I do twist my back I come in here and do my own ther­apy.”

Clients have the op­tion of sit­ting or ly­ing down on the mat to ex­pe­ri­ence the to­tal mi­cro­cir­cu­la­tion through­out the body and for peo­ple with chronic back pain there is a de­vice that is placed around the back to iso­late the area. Whit­worth also of­fers a red light treat­ment for peo­ple that may have skin is­sues.

“There is no age limit to this,” ex­pressed Whit­worth. “It is good for any age. I want to have a nice re­lax­ing at­mos­phere for peo­ple. I want them to re­lax and en­joy their eight min­utes of quiet time.”
