FSM – Frequency Specific Microcurrent

Emma uses Frequency Specific Microcurrent (FSM) alongside other treatment modalities to help reduce inflammation, pain and provide relief from a wide variety of common health complaints.

What is Frequency Specific Microcurrent (FSM)?

FSM is a technique that uses an ultra low-level electrical current delivered to targeted areas of the body.

A frequency is a specific rate at which a sound wave or electronic pulse is produced, different frequencies can be used to potentially reduce inflammation (swelling), repair tissue and reduce pain.

How does Frequency Specific Microcurrent (FSM) work?

The technique is based on pairs of frequencies, low-level microcurrent amperage currents and the principle of biologic resonance.

Each tissue in the body has its own distinct electrical frequency, which can be disrupted by injury or disease. 

Specific microcurrent frequencies can be applied to the affected area to restore the normal frequencies within the cells, resulting in an often remarkable improvement in pain, inflammation and general function.

How do the frequencies work?

Research suggests that the frequencies change cell signalling by interacting with cell membrane receptors; this affects the cell’s genetic expression and thereby the optimal cell function is restored. 

At the cellular level, microcurrent therapy stimulates a dramatic increase in ATP, the energy that fuels all biochemical functions in the body. It also increases protein synthesis, which is necessary for tissue repair.

What to expect during a typical treatment session.

Clients are asked to arrive at their session fully hydrated; during the session, you will sit or lie comfortably.

A pair of microampere-level electrical frequencies is applied to targeted areas of the body, using various combinations of conductors such as dampened specialist material, magnetic conductors and/or gel electrode patches.

Unlike the more familiar TENS units, which also use electrical currents to relieve pain, microcurrent therapy uses a very low-level electrical current that is undetectable.

FSM consistently creates a palpable change in tissue texture within seconds of applying the appropriate frequencies for the disorder being treated, so during the session, Emma can check the tissues being targeted and their response to the treatment.

A treatment course typically involves several sessions as the benefits accrue over time. 

Microcurrent therapy is safe and has no significant adverse effects. However, it is not recommended for patients who have pacemakers or are pregnant.

Does FSM work on everyone?

Patients who are dehydrated cannot benefit from FSM.

The effectiveness of FSM depends almost entirely on an accurate diagnosis. For example, shoulder pain could come from muscles, tendons, bursas, nerves or the joint. FSM will treat all of these pain generators effectively, but the practitioner must treat the right tissue for the correct condition to effectively eliminate the pain.

  • FSM – Louise Simmons

    I have been working with Emma for a number of years and have been truly grateful for all the guidance and support offered, to help me create balance and wellbeing in my life.

    The most recent holistic treatment Emma has studied is the FSM system – which I have now introduced into my well-being regime, using it to successfully support and treat my Immune System; digestion; lymphedema; muscle and joint soreness; liver detox and so much more, but I have been totally excited to see the results of the FSM system on anti-aging, and most particularly on my face. The results of the treatment speak highly for themselves…..I am heading into menopause and had been readily accepting the deterioration of the health of my skin, loss of tone, elasticity, colour etc, but starting the FSM Facial treatments under Emma’s recommendation and guidance has been absolutely eye-opening, Combining the micro-currents with the support of organic collagen face masks, it has revealed a youthful glow, increased elasticity, reduced wrinkles/sun spots/blemishes, less tired looking eyes, and generally given a welcome ‘lift’ to my whole complexion. It feels amazing and along with enjoying the compliments I am now receiving, the treatment has given me improved confidence, and an added interest in looking after my skin again.

  • FSM for our whole family

    I’ve been a client and student of Emma for 2 years, her knowledge is incredibly vast and relevant. Emma recommended FSM for our whole family especially our 4yr old, it’s easy to use and we love it. There’s lots of different protocols covering organs, emotions, body pain, sport performance, mould etc. We decided to get the magnetic converters as well, although it was extra money, we think it is fully justified for daily use and the ease of being treated while we sleep. It’s made a big difference.

    When Emma suggested FSM we were a bit sceptical. It sounds like a magic machine and costs a lot. We decided to go for it, especially because we can have 3hrs + treatments through the night, including for our little boy. That’s so easy and simple. It’s made a huge difference to how we feel. Within weeks we found ourselves “fighting” over who gets to use it.

    We’ve had severe long term mold exposure which has affected our whole family, 2 adults and 1 young child (now 4). FSM is incredibly beneficial, helping with a wide array of issues and symptoms. We use it during the day and night and it helps with so much eg:
