A YEAR after opening a bioresonance therapy clinic in Rawtenstall, it has proved so popular a second treatment room has opened.
Although the therapy is widely used in Europe, the scientific approach to treating ailments by retuning the body is still relatively new in the UK. Friends Lisa Lomas, from Weir, who runs Biores UK, and Samantha Snowdon, from Padiham, who runs her own business SS Bioresonance, have a clinic on the first floor above Simply Vegetarian on Kay Street.
Lisa and Sam are both Jehovah’s Witnesses and became friends after they learnt sign language so when at meetings they were able to communicate with all attendees.
It was Sam who suggested Lisa try bioresonance for her husband Garry, a tree surgeon, after he found his tears were burning his skin. The machine identified a bacteria in leaf mould was causing the problem and was able to solve it. The complete sceptic now swears by the treatment.
Lisa and Sam trained in the therapy in Southern Ireland and then completed an intensive course in Germany. Lisa said: “We initially had one therapy room, but we were getting busier and sometimes found ourselves double booked. Now, one year on, we have opened up a second room so we can both treat patients at the same time.”
One of the clinic’s success stories is four-year-old Emma Bhunjun whose mum Jana comes originally from the Czech Republic. She said: “Emma has sleep apnoea, which meant she had a runny nose, would be snoring and often on a night she would wake herself up. Doctors wanted to remove her adenoids and her tonsils but I did not want her to have an operation. I knew about bioresonance because it is popular in Europe and they have clinics in every city, but I never knew there were any were here in the UK.
“Then I met Lisa and Sam at a Mums In Business Association meeting. I live in Manchester but I would rather come here to be treated. After the treatment, I took Emma back to the Czech Republic and they said her condition had improved. Unless the problem comes back, Emma does not need surgery and I hope she never will. She is also now wearing a magnetic bracelet and the combination of both has made a huge difference to her.”
Lisa has clients in Lancashire, London, Lincoln and Scotland and has held several ‘pop-up’ shops in London and attended shows.
Sam said: “Bioresonance is something that is not that well known here and for the first few months after opening it was quiet, but in the last three months it has really taken off which is why we have opened a second treatment room.”
