A safe, effective, drug free treatment for pain relief, and to enhance recovery or injury repair and energy, using an APS Therapy machine.
APS stands for Action Potential Simulation. Action potentials are the tiny bursts of electricity that transmit information in the body, otherwise known as ‘nerve signals’.
The APS Therapy machine sends a copy, or ‘simulation’, of action potentials, through the cells, using electrodes attached to the skin. it is applied in the same way that a TENS machine is applied, but works in a very different way.
Treatment involves sitting comfortably for around 30 minutes, and is absolutely safe and pain free.
APS Therapy assists in pain relief, injury repair, and energy in 4 key ways:
1) Stimulates the body’s own healing mechanisms.
Using APS Therapy stimulates the production of ATP, adenosine triphosphate, the molecule that creates energy in the body. This gives a boost to the body’s natural healing mechanisms, assists in recovery from sport and from injury, and for many people, raises levels of energy and wellbeing. For other neuro-hormonal effects & benefits see sports
2) Assists removal of waste products.
By boosting the electrical communication between cells, waste products, which tend to build up when there is inflammation, are removed more effectively. This causes reduction in pain, and allows the healing process to go ahead.
3) Reduces pain
Perception of pain is affected by the electrically controlled ‘gates’ on nerve cells, and this is how many medications work. APS Therapy can achieve similar results in a drug-free, natural way.
Many people who use APS Therapy also report that they have significant improvements in both sleep quality and sleep quantity, and some have found relief from life-time insomnia. This also has an effect on pain, healing and energy.
‘I find it incredible, and it’s so good that it’s completely drug free! It took me about 1 week to go from pain that I couldn’t ignore ( about 7/10) to much better (2-3/10), and then since week 6 I am going 5 days a week pain-free. Also, I have much more energy!” Jenifer Anderson, 33, Bedford.
“I have been so excited by my progress with the APS Therapy – I have had no headaches for the first time in all my adult life, and it has completely sorted out my knee pain in such a short time, that I have persuaded my local pain clinic to buy a machine.” Dr. Maria Charbonne, GP, Luton

In clinical research, very good results have been obtained, showing from 78-85% of people, often with a long term painful condition, having a significant reduction in pain, with 15 – 19% going to completely pain free. Please have a look at the research tab above for the details.
How do I know it will work for me?
Either way, when you contact us, we assess your individual condition, and screen to ensure that APS Therapy is safe and appropriate for you. Using Skype, FaceTime, or the phone, wherever you live in the UK, we can teach you to use the machine, create a personalised treatment plan with you, and discuss your progress, suggesting any changes, throughout your treatment.
There is also a growing team of registered APS Therapists who have been taught by Painfree Potential, across the country.
If after renting or having a course of treatment with a therapist, you decide that you would like to benefit from APS Therapy in the long term, you can buy your rental model, or a new machine, via your APS Therapist.

Does APS Therapy work for all pain?
APS Therapy doesn’t work for every pain or everybody, and there are a few conditions where it is not safe to use APS. This is why we carry out a screening and assessment.

- If in the past 3 months, you have had a heart attack, pulmonary embolus, stroke or DVT
- If you have a heart pacemaker
- If you are pregnant

- If you have active cancer (complete remission is fine)
- and small children who are too young to say what they feel
