Frequency Specific Microcurrent is an FDA approved physiologic electric modality that increases ATP (energy) production in the cells of the body. ATP is the substance that cells use to produce functions and create healing. The microcurrent is not felt by the patient and has been shown in research studies to increase ATP by up to 500%. It also increases protein synthesis and amino acid transport, essentially the two building blocks of the body.
In layman terms, it increases the tissues’ healing rates on a cellular level. In addition, Frequency Microcurrent (FSM) shows a dramatic increase in the amount of blood circulation, collagen and elastin production, which makes it a great anti-aging method as well.
At the Cohn Health Institute, we use specific frequencies to address the various processes required by the body’s tissues. Similar to a TENS unit, it blocks the chemical pain responses by stimulating the areas as it “numbs’ the chemical pain signals. Microcurrent reduces pain by decreasing inflammation flooding into your cells with ATP which is what they use for energy. Needless to say, energy heals and helps the body repair to its natural state.
How We Do It
Sensors will be applied to specific parts of your body and the machine frequencies will be tailored to affect what is going wrong in the body and what specific tissue we are trying to address. Since the current is so small, you will not feel anything. This is important because, in order to cause a cellular change, the current has to be so small that you cannot feel it. The machine will be programmed to run through a specific set of frequencies designed for what you have going on.
A typical machine FSM session will run 25-28 minutes, depending on the program being run. there are a few exceptions, where the programs will run up to 90 min. Your doctor will prescribe a very specific treatment program to best suit your health needs, including duration, length, and frequency of treatment.
