KEY Therapy - non-invasive, interactive Neuro-stimulation
Key Therapy; a non-invasive alternative to pain medication gives fast, effective and sustained pain relief from acute, chronic, postoperative or sports injury pain, neuropathic pain.
KEY SERIES devices are German made devices, the latest development in biofeedback controlled non invasive neuro-stimulation therapy. The PHYSIOKEY (the professional device) along with the SANAKEY (the personal use device) are licensed in Australia with the Therapeutic Goods Authority to reduce acute and chronic pain, improve blood circulation, perform passive muscle stimulation and to restore functional restoration. The KEY series devices also incorporate iontophoresis so the devices may also be used in conjunction with creams and gels.
KEY Series devices are NOT TENS machines!
Key Therapy uses high amplitude, high density, feedback controlled pulse stimulation to cutaneous nerves, activating the body’s natural pain relieving and self-regulation mechanisms. KEY Therapy not only provides direct therapeutic effect – pain relief but also activates the natural defences of the body. The effect is achieved through the stimulation of reflective zones and acupuncture points on the skin surface. Pain relief therapy using Key Therapy is an extremely effective, non-invasive medical technology, which works by stimulating the body’s inherent self-healing mechanisms with minimal, if any, undesirable side effects
How does Key Therapy interactive neuro-stimulation treatment help me?
Neuro-stimulation is the use of electrical impulses to block or restore nervous system function and sensation.
Neuro-stimulation is extensively used for pain control but it is also used in non-painful medical conditions like pacemakers, which restore abnormal heart rhythms, and cochlear implants, which restore hearing. Neuro-stimulation could be considered the game-changer in pain medicine because it has the ability to significantly reduce and sometimes completely eliminate chronic pain in some people. It does this by ‘closing the gate’ to pain signals that travel up the spinal cord. Neuro-stimulation when used for pain control, blocks the pain signals as they travel up the spinal cord.
Neuro-stimulation treatment reduces nerve activity through the delivery of electrical stimulation to targeted sites of the body.
During physiokey application (Key-therapy), it is the neuropeptides that are the most important chemical modulators. Neuropeptide-producing nerve fibres make up more than 70% of the body’s neural tracts and can therefore be stimulated from many areas of the skin. The main goal of Key-therapy is to induce the secretion of a sufficient amount of neuropeptides to relieve pain and initiate a healing response. This is achieved by active feedback mechanisms, damped, bi-phasic, sinusoidal impulses and individualised treatment.
The most unique characteristic of physiokey is that it can induce changes in the parameters of its impulse automatically and in accordance with the body’s response to the device. While conventional physiotherapeutic devices are passive, physiokey involves active feedback; the device has a changing base of processing. The physiokey device does this by monitoring the skin’s impedance and then changes the electrical impulse it emits accordingly.
The characteristics of the physiokey impulse are such that the probability of excitation of the thin neuropeptide-secreting neural fibres is higher than conventional methods of electrotherapy.

If you cannot make your scheduled appointment, please give us the courtesy of at least 24 hours notice so that another patient may have the opportunity to be seen. Arriving for your appointment just a few minutes early will help ensure that you and others are seen in a timely fashion.
If you still have questions about whether this therapy may help you, please give Sharon a call to discuss your individual situation.
The SANAKEY is the personal pain relief device for use at home.
SANAKEY personal devices are for home users to manage their pain and speed up the recovery process from acute or chronic pain.
Your therapist may advise that you hire one of these devices to take home to use in between professional treatment sessions if thought that it may help your treatment process progress more quickly.
The SANAKEY provides fast and effective treatment applications for conditions that may include:
