Microcurrent Therapy


What is FSM?

Frequency Specific Microcurrent (FSM) is a new type of electrical stim therapy that dramatically decreases pain and increases the body's ability to heal and repair itself. FSM is painless. Using this modern day device, a current is delivered at the same level that your body produces within each cell. Because it is a familiar current, it is gentle and easily tolerated. FSM increases energy production inside the cells up to 500% therefore aiding the body to promote pain relief, recuperate, relax muscles, dissolve scar tissue and improve healing at accelerated rates.

How long do benefits last?

Every patient responds individually, but the changes to the tissues are observed to be long lasting. About 60-80% of the changes created in one treatment last until the next treatment, about 4-7 days later. Although patients have had permanent changes in one treatment, the average number of treatments necessary to achieve the desired results depends on the complexity of the problem.

Why is hydration important?

Hydration is the number one thing you can do to assist in the success of your treatment. Two quarts of water in the two hours prior to treatment will help the body conduct to its highest potential making the treatment the most effective. Continuing to drink another 1 to 2 quarts after treatment will flush the toxins out of your system. There may be supportive lifestyle changes as well that your doctor will address to help your body to heal and maintain a greater level of health.

What are the risks/side effects?

There are no known risks when FSM is used correctly. FSM is not used during pregnancy or on patients with certain pacemakers. It is safe enough for infants and powerful enough to be used by some of the world's top athletes!

Side effects are related to a detoxification reaction brought about by increased cellular metabolism and removal of waste products similar to the side effects of deep tissue massage. Side effects may include general achiness, drowsiness, headache, nausea or euphoric feelings due to the increased endorphins.

To aid detox reaction, increase water intake, eat fresh vegetables and fruits, take supplements with antioxidants, and/or an Epsom salt bath.

How is FSM different than other electrical devices?

FSM works on a cellular level. It uses an electric current that is measured in millionths of an amp. In comparison, a TENS (trans-cutaneous electrical nerve stimulation) unit and most other electrotherapies produce milli-amps which are 1000 times greater. Our own cells generate a current in the micro-amp range and that is why you can't feel FSM- the current is so low it doesn't stimulate sensory cells.

We believe FSM works on the principle of biologic resonance. A singer can shatter a glass when the note resonates with the crystal structure of the glass. Microcurrent frequencies seem to resonate with biological tissues when the frequency is correct, creating instantaneous changes. Other devices such as the TENS unit cannot heal on a cellular level because its current is 1000 times too large. The current doesn't match or resonate with the body's cells in a way that invokes a healing response.

Conditions effectively treated with FSM:

  • Sports injuries
  • Back or neck pain
  • Sprains/strains
  • Disc pain
  • TMJ pain
  • Nerve or muscle pain
  • Shoulder or ankle injuries
  • Fibromyalgia Arthritis
  • Post-surgery recovery
  • Tendonitis/bursitis
  • Carpal tunnel syndrome
  • Headaches
  • Reduces scar tissue
  • Reduces inflammation
