Frequency Specific Microcurrent is an exciting new way of treating nerve and muscle pain and many other conditions using specific frequencies and micro amperage current.
There are hundreds of practitioners in the US, Australia, Ireland, and Canada using FSM to create miraculous changes in patients to reduce pain and improve health. Most of the time FSM produces immediate and dramatic changes in tissue that makes it an indispensable tool in treating pain and many other health concerns.
For example, there is one frequency combination that is only useful for shingles and herpes. In the shingles prodrome it eliminates the pain and prevents the blisters from breaking out. In herpes outbreaks, it eliminates the pain and heals the blisters in hours with only a one hour treatment.
This frequency combination is only good for this purpose and is not useful for anything else. We have not found anyone it does not work on or any other condition for which it is useful. The frequency to reduce inflammation reduces inflammation in a blinded animal study more effectively than any drug ever tested in this animal model. No other frequency reduced inflammation at all. The frequency specific effect is remarkable and reproducible.
There are FDA restrictions on what we can say, report or claim as an effect of the use of microcurrent as a device for the treatment of any condition other than a general “treatment of pain” statement.
Microcurrent instruments are all approved under the general class of transcutaneous electrical nerve stimulators (“TENS”) devices even though microcurrent is 1000 times less current than TENS.
TENS devices can only make claims about general relief of pain. This doesn’t change what we can do, it changes what we can say about what we can do. All references to clinical effects other than simple pain control refer to frequency resonance effects not the effects of microcurrent.
FSM has changed what is possible in pain management. FSM can treat chronic myofascial pain quickly, easily, and comfortably. Nerve pain from nerve traction injuries, disc bulges, herniations, herpes and shingles can be treated successfully by FSM Practitioners.There are protocols for kidney stone pain, disc and facet joint generated pain that give rapid and often lasting relief. The protocol for fibromyalgia associated with neck trauma offers pain relief, unprecendented changes in inflammatory cytokines and hope for the 2 million patients who suffer from this condition.
There are never any promises with medical procedures but Frequency Specific Microcurrent offers hope.
Fixed cupping is where the cups remain in place throughout the treatment, and are normally left in place from anywhere between 5 and 10 minutes.
Moving cupping (also known as gliding cupping) is where the cups are moved during the treatment to massage the muscles. To do this the practitioner will use oil on the skin to allow the cups to move easily without uncomfortable friction.
Dry cupping (or air cupping) uses a specially designed pump which is attached to the skin
Wet cupping is the most similar to acupuncture. After the cup is removed, a small incision is made to the skin, and the cup is then reapplied to withdraw a small amount of blood. Special antibiotic cream is then applied to prevent infection. It is thought that this technique helps to remove toxins from the body and promotes natural healing.
How does it work?
Cupping is believed to mobilise blood flow to the skin creating a mild immune response and increasing anti-inflammatory chemicals in the body. It draws stagnant blood to the surface and improves blood circulation to the tissues. It stretches tight muscles and fascia making it a beneficial treatment for athletes.
Benefits of cupping
Cupping, particularly moving cupping, has similar effects to a massage and is therefore beneficial in relieving muscular pain. Although further research investigating the effects of cupping on fibromyalgia needs to be done, one investigation found that cupping therapy was more effective at reducing pain intensity than regular care.
Releases muscle tension
Cupping softens muscle tissue and helps to relieve muscle knots which results in looser feeling, more flexible muscles. Cupping usually targets muscle groups that are prone to tightness such as the hamstrings, the adductors and the back and shoulder muscles.
Improves digestion/relieves digestive disorders
Cupping is thought to improve digestion through relaxing the whole body. Stress, anxiety, and muscle tension can lead to congestion and stagnation in the digestive system. Cupping is thought to release this stagnation, however more research is needed to back these beliefs
