What is frequency-specific microcurrent (FSM) ?
Frequency-specific microcurrent (FSM) is a technique for treating stress responses, brain related challenges, endocrine system challenges, pain and inflammatory conditions by using low-level electrical current. The current is delivered to certain parts of the body in an attempt to relieve the pain and inflammation. Since inflammation is the #1 killer of good health and shows up in a variety of ways from Brain Dysregulation to chronic pain and inflammatory conditions, it is no surprise why FSM is changing medicine.
A frequency is the rate at which a sound wave or electronic pulse is produced. This measurement is registered in hertz (Hz). In using FSM to treat pain, it’s been found that various frequencies can be used to potentially reduce inflammation (swelling), repair tissue, and reduce pain.
How does frequency-specific microcurrent work?
FSM is applied to the body with a device that delivers a mild current. Microcurrent is an extremely mild electrical current (one millionth of an ampere). The human body actually produces its own current within each cell.
In FSM, depending on the tissue involved, specific frequencies are selected to encourage natural healing of the body and to reduce pain. Frequencies have been identified for nearly every type of tissue in the body.
One of the ways FSM works is by increasing the production of the substance ATP in injured tissues. ATP is the major source of energy for all cellular reactions in the body. Because treatment with FSM can increase ATP production by as much as 500% in damaged tissues, this may help with the recovery process. Depending on the condition, treatment with FSM can “loosen” or soften the muscles, which can help relieve pain and/or stiffness.

Is frequency-specific microcurrent painful?
Treatment with FSM is non-invasive and painless. The currents used in FSM are so low that the patient often does not feel them. During FSM treatment, patients may notice certain effects, including warmth and a softening of affected tissues.
