Frequency Specific Microcurrent (FSM) uses specific, minute amounts of electrical current to increase the body’s ability to heal and repair itself. This electrical current is sub-sensory, and therefore patients are unable to feel it. When cells become damaged due to any number of illnesses, trauma, or disorders, the specific resonant frequency ideal for those particular cells is altered. FSM resonates the correct frequency to these damaged cells, causing a profound healing effect on the tissues. Scientific studies have shown that it can reduce inflammation by 62%, increase ATP (energy production) by 500%, and increase protein synthesis (building blocks of cells) by 70%. By increasing cells’ energy production and protein synthesis, the cells are better able to repair themselves, ideally allowing the body to “fix” itself. Many protocols have been tested and established for many health and musculoskeletal conditions.
