LifeWorks Offers I-Therm Treatments

Continually offering new cutting-edge therapies, LifeWorks Wellness Center has recently added I-Therm treatments to its services. The I-Therm is a revolutionary system that safely heats body tissue and promotes healing by increasing localized blood flow.

Patients lay on a comfortable bed and have heated pads placed on their bodies, wherever they have pain. The I-Therm induces molecular hyperthermia which increases blood flow and thereby promotes a dramatically more efficient delivery of oxygen and nutrients and the more rapid removal of toxins in the targeted area. The I-Therm includes temperature sensors that safely monitor and control both internal and external (skin) temperatures.

LifeWorks co-founder and Medical Director, Dr. David Minkoff, explains, “the key benefits of an I-Therm treatment are that it alleviates pain, provides rapid neurologic rehabilitation and enhances the effectiveness of cancer treatments. Patients currently benefitting from the treatments include those with sports injuries and muscle, bone and nerve pain. The I-Therm has also been proven to shrink cancerous tumors so we are anticipating positive results for our cancer patients.”

About Dr. Minkoff

In 1995, Dr. Minkoff's wife became ill and her physicians couldn't find what was wrong. Not accepting their "no hope" conclusion, Dr. Minkoff went on a search to help her which led him out of emergency medicine into complementary and alternative medicine to find the answers. In the process he gained expertise in Biological medicine, heavy metal detoxification, anti-aging medicine, hormone replacement therapy, functional medicine, energy medicine, neural and prolotherapy, homeopathy and optimum nutrition. He studied under the masters in each of these disciplines until he became an expert in his own right. The answers he found were soon in demand when others learned of his wife’s return to good health. In response to this, he and his wife, Sue Minkoff RN established LifeWorks Wellness Center in 1997 and it quickly became one of the most comprehensive complementary and alternative medicine clinics in the U.S.
