What Does Frequency-specific Microcurrent Do?

By March 30, 2023April 10th, 2023No Comments

While using electricity to treat disease may seem futuristic, what if I tell you it is a practice that has been around for some time?

With its non-invasive nature and minimal side effects, electrotherapy is quickly gaining popularity as a safe and effective alternative to traditional approaches.

What is it? And how does it work? Find out how you can improve your various symptoms with frequency-specific microcurrent therapy.


No Pain, No Drugs – Learn How Frequency-specific Microcurrent Heals

What Is Frequency-specific Microcurrent?

Frequency-specific microcurrent (FSM) is a type of electrotherapy that heals several medical conditions, including pain, using very low-level electrical currents.

FSM involves applying electrical current frequencies to particular body parts to reduce inflammation, pain, and tissue damage while accelerating recovery.

Although electrotherapy for pain management has been around for many years, the emergence of FSM has elevated this healthcare technique to new heights. Following the application of FSM, many types of pain, including back pain, neck pain, joint pain, and even migraines, have been successfully treated, prevented, and managed.

FSM is non-invasive and generally considered safe. However, it’s essential to consult a qualified healthcare practitioner before undergoing electrotherapy.


How Does Frequency-specific Microcurrent Work?

Frequency-specific microcurrent works by stimulating the body’s natural healing mechanisms and reducing inflammation, which can contribute to pain. It can do this by applying low-level electrical current to the body at specific frequencies.

First, FSM can stimulate the body’s production of ATP, a chemical essential for cellular energy, by enhancing the cell powerhouses – mitochondria – by up to 500%. Because cells and tissues require a lot more fuel than usual to heal, this increased ATP production, in turn, promotes self-healing activities while relaxing the damaged tissues to reduce pain.

Second, FSM may activate the body’s natural anti-inflammatory response. The electrical currents used in FSM may stimulate the production of anti-inflammatory cytokines. These signaling molecules regulate the immune and inflammation responses.

Finally, FSM may promote the release of endorphins, the natural painkillers in the body. Endorphins have anti-inflammatory properties through their ability to adjust the status of cytokine secretion, and their release may help reduce inflammation and pain.


What Can Frequency-specific Microcurrent Treat?


Frequency-specific microcurrent is effective in various health conditions, including nerve and muscle pain. It can also help treat fibromyalgia and chronic fatigue.



According to a study based on subject pain score measurement, FSM successfully treated symptoms of fibromyalgia caused by cervical spine trauma in 49 out of 54 patients.

Specifically, on a 10-point scale, 49 patients reported reduced pain after receiving the first 90-minute session, with an average baseline score of 7.3 falling to 1.3. After an average of 8 sessions, 31 patients experienced symptomatic alleviation. The recovery reached 100% at 4.5 months, and the median time to improvement was 2 months.

Also, the research found that the first 90 minutes of therapy resulted in lower levels of substance P, interleukin-1, and interleukin-6. In addition, tumor necrosis factor (TNF) decreased from 305 to 78 pg/ml. Also, beta-endorphin rose from an average of 8.2 to 71.1 pg/ml within the same period. In contrast, cortisol climbed from 14.7 to 105.3 mg/ml.


Chronic Fatigue

While in-depth research on using FSM to treat chronic fatigue syndrome is limited, the prevailing hypothesis suggests that the therapy may help alleviate fatigue by enhancing mitochondrial activity.

Mitochondria are responsible for producing energy within cells, and dysfunction in these organelles is a primary cause of chronic fatigue. By targeting specific frequencies, FSM may help improve energy production and alleviate fatigue. Additionally, FSM may effectively treat mitochondrial dysfunction directly, addressing the condition’s underlying cause.

While further research is necessary to fully understand the mechanisms behind FSM’s effectiveness in treating chronic fatigue, many patients have reported improved energy levels and overall quality of life after undergoing this therapy.


How is Frequency-specific Microcurrent Applied?

Before Treatment


A qualified healthcare practitioner, such as a chiropractor, acupuncturist, or physical therapist, typically conducts frequency-specific microcurrent therapy.

The therapy involves using a specialized microcurrent device that delivers very low-level electrical currents to specific points on the body. First, the healthcare practitioner will evaluate the patient’s health history to determine if FSM is appropriate.


During Treatment

The patient will then lie down on a treatment table, and the healthcare practitioner will prepare the skin by cleaning and applying conductive gel patches to the treatment area. The practitioner will then apply electrodes wrapped around by conductive graphite gloves and moistened towels, connected to a microcurrent device, to specific points on the body.

The microcurrent device will then be turned on, delivering very low-level electrical currents to the treatment area. The treatment typically lasts between 30 minutes to an hour. During the treatment, the practitioner may adjust the frequency and intensity of the microcurrent device.


After Treatment

The practitioner will remove the electrodes and wipe off any remaining conductive gel. Patients may experience mild discomfort or tingling during the treatment, but this should subside after the completion of the session.

The duration and the number of sessions required to be effective vary, depending on the severity of the condition. Some patients may experience improvement after just one or two sessions, while others may require multiple treatments over a more extended time.


Who Can Benefit From Frequency-specific Microcurrent?

Because it is non-pharmaceutical and has few side effects, frequency-specific microcurrent suits many people looking to reduce pain and improve their quality of life. This group includes individuals with acute or chronic pain, injuries, or inflammatory conditions. Also, FSM may be helpful for athletes looking to improve their performance and recovery time.

For individuals with fibromyalgia or chronic fatigue syndrome, FSM can be an adjunct treatment option or an alternative if traditional approaches are unsuccessful. By targeting specific frequencies associated with these conditions, FSM may help reduce pain, improve energy levels, and promote overall well-being.

Still, as with any medical treatment, it is essential to consult with a healthcare provider to determine if FSM is a suitable option for your specific needs and medical history.
