The AVACEN 100 is the only OTC medical device on the market today able to provide noninvasive rapid whole body treatment using a single point of contact.
The concept for AVACEN, which is an acronym for Advanced VAscular Circulation ENhancement, grew out of research to help those suffering from chronic migraines. We found a thyroid treatment protocol that was raising core body temperature using T3 hormones which produced the unexpected benefit of relief for migraineurs.
Thus began the quest to understand core body temperature manipulation. This led to published research which described a process whereby putting the hand in a slight vacuum while applying heat to the palm could transfer that heat into the circulatory system thereby influencing core body temperature.
We later discovered that continuing to infuse heat into the circulatory system after the body reached normothermia produced some widespread and exciting results.
