Sombra Warm Therapy Pain Relieving Gel is a unique herbal formula of effective natural ingredients developed and clinically tested!
Thank you for getting the products to me so fast! I am so pleased with how the Sombra works, even by just rubbing it into the skin after a warm shower. I have left hip osteoarthritis with degenerative joint disease. (Don't want to get cortisone shots or hip replacement, which is what osteopath recommends.)
I have told my chiropractor about it and she tried some of mine and would love to purchase some as she has many patients she sees and uses ultrasound with. I told her I would check with you because it is amazing and brings relief quickly, and I would prefer she use that on me and all her patients.
It lasts for hours and hours without NSAIDs or other pain meds.
P.S.: Keep up the great work, folks. We truly appreciate it! Pain-free the natural way. What a great site. Thank you, thank you, thank you!

Using Sombra Gel Topical Cream to Take Advantage of Phonophoresis:
Why do I need to use Ultrasound Gel?
The speed ultra sound waves travel are affected by the different types of body tissues. The ultra sonic waves travel fastest through bone tissue, and moves slowest through air. Because air is such a poor conductor, when the ultrasound machine is applied to the skin, the ultrasound waves cannot enter the body.
Prior to ultrasound treatment, coupling gel is applied to the skin to allow for smooth movement of the transducer over the skin and to eliminate air between the skin and the transducer.
Ultrasound gel is hyper-ionic so it conducts the ultrasonic sound waves into the body. Without the proper conductivity gel, ultrasound therapy is ineffective.
Phonophoresis, also known as sonophoresis, is the use of ultrasound to enhance the delivery of topically applied drugs. Effectively, medicines contained within or under the ultrasound gel are pushed by the sound waves of the ultrasound and driven deep below the skin. Phonophoretically administered medications can penetrate the body at a much deeper level than those massaged by hand over the surface of the skin. The Sombra Gel ointment's naturally based pain relieving and anti-inflammatory ingredients are driven deep into the tissue with ultrasound application - delivering pain relief EXACTLY where you need it.
The duration of the treatment, and the need to adhere to a specific dosage, is also a large consideration. Obviously, the longer ultrasound is used over a topical phonophoretic drug, the more medication is delivered and the deeper it goes. Drugs that require very exact doses, like insulin for example, cannot be controlled accurately enough to be delivered via Phonophoresis. Many natural analgesics (muscle pain rubs), such as Sombra Gel Treatment, and anti-inflammatory drugs, are excellent candidates for phonophoretic application though and provide great relief for muscle pain.
One of the greatest benefits to delivering medications via phonophoresis is that the medication can be delivered locally to a desired area. Oral pain killers, muscle pain medications and anti-inflammatory drugs are introduced to the entire body in equal amounts. Even if you only need pain relief in your tennis elbow, or an anti-inflammatory in your swollen bursa, when using oral medications, you end up drugging your entire body - including your brain, your heart, and your lungs - even if they might not need the drug. With phonophoresis lotions, such as Sombra Gel, the part of the body that receives the medication is the precise part of your body that needs it.
Where is Phonophoresis Typically Used?
Phonophoresis is most commonly used by Physical Therapists and Chiropractors for the treatment of localized physical injuries. As a very cutting edge technology, phonophoresis is currently being studied for the use of a vast array of medications.
