I have chemo induce neuropathy and I just read about Calmare Therapy. Has anyone tried this and where can a person get this therapy?

Calmare Therapy, also called Scrambler worked for me. 15 one hour treatments. Expensive, $250 a session. It is worth it for me. Radiant Pain Centers. Chicago and Portland Or. 503 379 0790. Very friendly and knowable and give advice.

Ask them for a discount because nobody knows if it will work for you. My pain clinic in CT gave me a discount ($75 a session) and I did it for 3 days in a row. I'm glad I asked because after 3 days the next morning the neuropathy was much stronger. Goodbye to Calmare. Everyone is different. It seemed to slowly revert to the previous level in about 3 weeks but I was using walking stick for a few days.
