Massage is not the only way I help to reduce pain in the body. Frequency Specific Microcurrent (FSM) is one of the treatments that I offer, which a few people have asked about recently.
It is a system of treating body tissue using microamperage current. Microamperage current is the same kind of current your body produces on its own within each cell.
A combination of 2 frequencies are used at any one time – One frequency addresses the condition while the second addresses the specific tissue.
There’s a frequency to reduced redness and swelling thus decrease inflammation or increased range of motion and softened tissue resulting in a soften of scar tissue.
The second frequency addresses the specific tissue in the body being targeted ie nerve, tendon, ligament or muscle etc.
For example one can decrease inflammation from muscle tissue. As is highlighted in the study Denise Curtis, my tutor for the Frequency specific microcurrent therapy, has completed. Ever done too much physical activity and felt stiff and sore the next day. This is delayed onset of muscle soreness (DOMS) which is described as damaged muscle tissue combined with inflammation. The study completed compares the effects FSM therapy versus no therapy on DOMS. The study can be found in the Journal of Bodywork and movement therapies volume 14 #3. http://www.bodyworkmovementtherapies.com/article/S1360-8592(10)00010-0/abstract The conclusion of the study shows that FSM therapy did provide significant protection from delayed onset of muscle soreness.
Other conditions can be helped by using the frequency specific microcurrent unit. Shingles responds very well to one frequency combination that eliminates the pain in 20 minutes and causes the lesions to dry up and disappear in approximately two to three days. There are many more conditions which can benefit from FSM therapy
Clients who are dehydrated cannot benefit from FSM. Every patient is advised to drink at least a pint of 2 of water in the one hour preceding treatment.
