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.
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.
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.
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.
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 conductive materials, magnetic conductors 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.
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.
