Elosan therapy – pain treatment using electrostatics

Elosan therapy aims to alleviate chronic pain – especially soft-tissue rheumatic pain and diffuse, radiating pain – by applying an electrostatic charge to the whole body. The treatment is done upon the instructions of a physician. It is done with the patient standing up in the Elosan Cabin. The person is charged and discharged several times over the course of four minutes. The charge can be felt on the skin and it can be seen through bristling of the hairs on the body.

One double treatment per week over a period of three to five weeks has been found to be the ideal treatment regimen. In addition to alleviation of pain, most people experience a refreshing feeling and confirm that their quality of life has improved.


The treatment helps patients who have been suffering from pain for a long time.

The key areas where this treatment is applied are:

  • Back pain
  • Headaches
  • Rheumatic pain
  • Neuropathic pain
  • Fibromyalgia (soft-tissue rheumatism)
  • Degenerative pain
  • Phantom pains

Here’s what operators have to say

Treatment with the Elosan Cabin C1 expands the spectrum of treatment options available to patients with chronic pain by adding an effective, side-effect-free, well-tolerated and non-medication-based physical treatment option. The treatment is not time-intensive, plus it is easy to delegate and does not put patients under any strain or expose them to any danger.

From July 2018 to March 2019, I was the Study Coordinator for the Elosan Effectiveness Study project. In this role, I had the opportunity to get to know the Elosan system, test it on the study participants and observe the therapeutic effects at first hand. The system has proven to be safe and highly effective for the treatment of musculoskeletal conditions. The best results were found in the case of soft-tissue pathologies, in which long-term positive effects were observed. Patient compliance was excellent and because the system was so user-friendly, treatment could be easily carried out even when the practice was very busy.

During the study, I was the person responsible for caring for and monitoring the patients treated with the Elosan system. The system is trouble-free and easy to use. Because the treatment only takes a short time, it can be easily integrated into the everyday operations of a medical practice. Both patients and operators welcomed the treatment.

I had to opportunity to operate the cabin as part of the Elosan study. The Elosan Cabin is very user-friendly and easy to operate. The fact that the cabin is transparent had a positive effect on both us as operators and on the patients. It was also possible to easily communicate with the patients during the treatment and ask about how they were feeling or about the sensations they were experiencing.

Here’s what patients have to say

As a climber, I put a lot of strain on my body. Unfortunately, many years of climbing at a high level have resulted in pain in my sacral region and lower back as well as in my upper shoulder area. Thanks to the Elosan therapy, my pain has reduced significantly. An additional positive effect that I notice is that it takes me noticeably less time to recover after intense training, which means I am back to my best much quicker. I’m also falling asleep and staying asleep better.

For years, I had been suffering from long-term effects of Lyme disease: recurring, episodic pain in joints, muscles and tissues, exhaustion, changes in sensation and join inflammation. Since I have been able to have regular Elosan therapy, I have had hardly any pain during the day and I have a new quality of life – something I would not have dared to dream of before.

For about six years, I have been suffering from neuropathic pain in my feet. It’s a recurring, stabbing pain that comes and goes. After just a few treatments, the pain started to reduce – in terms of both frequency and intensity. What used to feel like a raging storm in my feet now only feels like an occasional flash of lightning. It’s made a huge improvement to my quality of life.

A few years ago, I had a bad accident. I had vertebral fractures, a rib fracture and a fracture in my left shoulder. I didn’t have surgery, but many of the bones did not grow back together properly. The tissue contractures around my chest in particular cause me a lot of problems. I often feel like I am stuck inside a shell. By chance, I heard about Elosan therapy and I volunteered as a study subject. The treatment started having an effect very quickly. The regular weekly treatments really help alleviate my pain and I feel re-energised after every session. I am very impressed and very grateful.
