The basis of the Pulsson® method is the Pulsson® Health Cruiser therapeutic device.
The author of the method and the patented invention is Zygmunt Pulsson. The method is based on the application of specific movements of varying strength, direction and shape to the whole body of a person remaining in a lying position. The method uses the principle of inertia and elastic suspension of the Pulsson® device for structural changes of the body, massage of internal organs and to regulate the flow of body fluids.
Pillars of the Pulsson® method
The Pulsson® device, thanks to its flexible suspension, performs movements with different characteristics - pendular, circular, gravitational, vibratory and combined in each plane. These movements have variable frequency and amplitude. They act on the body consistently in specific time intervals. What distinguishes the Pulsson® device is the pyramidal wave motion, which leads to multi-point counter rotation of the body.
Inertia and energy generation
According to the principle of inertia, the human body, all fluids, tissues and organs follow the movements of the Pulsson® device. Balancing of the mutual forces of the system is observed - the inertia of the body and the movement of the device. In this way, the body takes up the energy of movement and begins to generate its own energy, necessary to stimulate physiological and mental processes.
Autoregulation and energy distribution
After a session on the Pulsson® device, the patient remains on the labile elastic suspension of the device. This allows the energy generated by the movements of the Pulsson®device to be freely distributed. The body can smoothly control its processes without interference from the ground. The Pulsson® responsively takes over and reflects every subtle movement of the body and supports self-regulation.
On the Pulsson® device, the person lies on their back. This is a natural signal to relax. The legs are slightly raised to increase the drainage effect. The whole body is supported. Pulsson® stimulations reach even the deepest tissues and internal organs. The stimuli are received on a physical and mental level. The sessions take place without touching or undressing the patient.
Therapeutic effects and hypotheses
1.The application of movement stimulus by the Pulsson® method regulates the potentials on cell membranes, which is an impulse for energy production, cell division and growth. Pulsson® influences the maintenance of vital processes, regeneration and rejuvenation of the organism.
2.Subjecting cells to movement stimuli causes them to be oxygenated and nourished. Pulsson®, by stimulating respiratory processes, causes greater exercise endurance and faster regeneration of the body. The progressive application of a movement stimulus is an excellent training factor.
3.By stimulating receptors with movement, Pulsson® causes the release of chemicals and enzymes that stimulate the metabolism. The body uses up its fat reserves. Pulsson® supports the process of reducing excess weight.
4.Stimulation with movement on the Pulsson® device increases the absorption of nutrients and supplements.
5.As a result of centrifugal forces on tissues, blood vessels become more flexible and stronger. Pulsson® accelerates cardiac rehabilitation.
6.Deep tissue movement stimulates the lymphatic system which results in elimination of blockages and forces the body to expel toxins from hard-to-reach places. Pulsson® accelerates and deepens the process of cleansing the body. Pulsson® is a non-invasive method of lymphatic cleansing.
7.Moving body fluids leads to stimulation of all internal organs. Pulsson® creates an environment in which the body's biological, natural vital forces are activated, enabling the body to quickly achieve a state of balance. Pulsson® strengthens immunity, activates autoregulation and the self-healing processes of the organism.
8. Fluids, stirred by movement, enable the flow of substances and information between cells, resulting in a stimulation of signal transmission. Pulsson® activates new prioprioreceptive patterns of sensation and organises new neural pathways. Pulsson® supports neurological rehabilitation.
9.An appropriately set frequency of movement enables rapid relaxation and access to deeper awareness and resources of the human psyche. Pulsson® can be used to work on the mind, e.g. in mental training.
The Patent Office - an excerpt from the description of the invention
"Having used the equipment according to the invention for massage aimed at inducing movement of human body fluids, as well as in the case of treatments for massaging internal organs or making the skeletal system more flexible, it was discovered that the effect was achieved after applying much less force than when using traditional rigid tables and beds, and the person being massaged felt much more comfortable during the treatment.
A massage performed without any physical contact between the massage therapist and the body of the person being massaged was also found to be just as effective, achieved by only moving the tabletop of the Pulsson therapy equipment. This way of conducting a massage enables the use of an electric drive, which makes the tabletop move, and thus enables a massage without the participation of the massage therapist.
The solution according to the invention has also made it possible to carry out massage of people who have various types of skin diseases or particularly sensitive skin, or a body prone to swelling. The object of the invention can be used as a table for massaging internal organs, inducing the circulation of human body fluids, removing blockages formed in the lymphatic ducts and blood system and removing deposits of toxic substances that have not been expelled from the body as a result of the natural cleansing activities of the body, e.g. from the large and small intestines, as well as for eliminating swelling and removing muscle tension. Similar functions can be performed according to the invention in the process of rehabilitation of patients after diseases or injuries, in particular in the process of flexibility of theskeletal system. When the equipment according to the invention is used as a bed for daily use, it can additionally perfectly perform relaxation functions both during rest as well as during sleep."

Study of the effect of Pulsson® Therapy on regression of lung interstitial changes in the course of Covid 19 infection.
Maria Uliasz - physician describing CT imaging study - CT1 before the therapy, Marta Dziuba - physician describing the CT imaging - CT2 after the therapy.
Physiotherapeutic treatments on Pulsson device: Zygmunt Pulsson - author of the Pulsson® Therapy method.
The aim of the report is to demonstrate the effectiveness of the Pulsson® method in rehabilitation after interstitial pneumonia in the course of Covid 19 infection.
MATERIAL AND METHOD
A patient under examination: a man aged 36 years with a body weight of 90 kg and height of 186 cm.
Patient with pulmonary interstitial lesions in the course of Covid infection found on chest computed tomography (CT1 scan). The patient completed isolation at the beginning of November 2020
Result of CT scan of the chest CT 1 dated 10.11.2020, i.e. before Pulsson® Therapy:
Lungs: quite numerous diffuse macular milky glass densities located
especially around the periphery of the upper lobes and throughout the lower lobes. Some lesions show
features of organization and marked image of cobblestones - especially S6PP I S6PL. The image
suggests a process of interstitial viral pneumonia in a stage of organisation
in the course of Covid 19.
Lymph nodes in the mediastinum: not enlarged
Trachea and bronchi: normal obstruction
Pleural cavities: without fluid
Skeletal elements of the thorax: unchanged
Maria Uliasz - the doctor describing the CT1 examination
Therapy method used:
The patient underwent a cycle of 11 Pulsson® Therapy treatments on the Pulsson® device from 18.11.2020 to 2.12.2020. The therapeutic effect was implemented through the action of wave motion on the cardio-respiratory system and the entire body of the patient. During the therapy, the patient's body was introduced to specific movements with the Pulsson therapy device, on which the patient lies freely on his back. The device has a movable platform which kinetically moves the body in wave-like movements of the appropriate frequency and amplitude. This leads to an inertial non-contact massage of the whole body and internal organs: relaxation, mobilization, drainage, oxygenation and regulation of body fluid flow.
Zygmunt Pulsson - author of Pulsson® Therapy
The result of a CT scan of the chest CT2 dated 30.01.2020:
after undergoing a series of Pulsson® Therapy treatments, there was an almost complete regression of the thickenings visible in the previous examination. At present there are residual, very poorly differentiating from the remaining pulmonary parenchyma, discrete densities of the matt-glass type located along the bronchovascular bundles in the lower lobes of the lungs.
Additionally, as before i.e:
Slight scarring changes in the peaks of both lungs
Mediastinal lymph nodes not enlarged
Normal trachea and bronchi obstruction
Pleural cavities without fluid
Adrenal glands without changes
Bony elements of the chest wall without changes

Study on the influence of the type of rest break on VO2, HR and LA levels during interval training in Szurkowski Cyclists Group using the PULSSON® device.
Research team leader: Professor Tomasz Gabryś (AWF Warsaw),
Biochemical studies: Dr Urszula Szmatlan - Gabryś (AWF Warsaw),
Physiotherapeutic treatments on Pulsson® device: Zygmunt Pulsson - author of Pulsson® Therapy,
Graphs of the research measurements were made by - Arkadiusz Stanula (AWF Katowice),
The research was published in the "ANNALES MEDICINE" of the Medical Academy in Lublin.
The aim of the study was to analyse the dynamics of total oxygen consumption, total heart rate and lactate level, during interval exercise and rest break, in which two methods of rest were used: standard and Pulsson® Therapy method performed on a PULSSON® device.
Analysis of the test results shows lower values for oxygen consumption and lower levels of lactate concentration, which may indicate an increase in the efficiency of metabolic processes when using the Pulsson® method.
The research showed the validity of the use of the PULSSON® device in sport and the advisability of further investigations. The research was published and presented by Dr Szmaltan - Gabryś during the 14th International Scientific Conference: "Directions for Improvement of Training and Sport Combat" at the Olympic Preparation Centre in Spała - 28 - 30 November 2005.
