Frequency Specific Microcurrent represents one of the more exciting breakthroughs in alternative medicine. While these frequencies have been around for decades, they have just recently resurfaced, thanks to the pioneering work of Dr. Carolyn McMakin.

Frequency Specific Microcurrent ProviderSome patients respond very well with electrical pulses in micro amperage currents and have been treated this way since the early 1900s by doctors and Osteopaths. In 1922, there was a list of different frequencies that were of benefit to the body and this list was brought back in 1995. These machines are used in physical therapy treatments and are classified as a TENS unit.  The frequencies are used to target specific tissues and conditions in the body based on the associated frequencies. This is a specialized practice that Dr. Noah Edvalson has advanced training in.

 

 

 

What is FSM?

These machines are used in physical therapy treatments and are classified as a TENS unit.  The frequencies are used to target specific tissues and conditions in the body based on the associated frequencies.  In just the short time since rediscovering these frequencies, Dr. McMakin and other contributing practitioners have been able to accumulate a nice body of evidence for a variety of applications.  We know that the body uses electricity to send signals and communicate across cell membranes, so it makes sense that we can help affect physiology using those frequencies.

What can FSM help with?

FSM is used to treat conditions like:

  • Muscle pain
  • Nerve pain
  • Scar tissue
  • Inflammation
  • Fibromyalgia
  • Asthma
  • Shingles
  • Delayed Onset Muscle Soreness
  • Macular Degeneration
  • Constipation
  • ...and much more...

Success Stories using FSM

"One of the best treatments that I have found is Frequency Specific Microcurrent (FSM)...This form of therapy works quickly, with minimum discomfort and often a rapid result...I could actually feel the tissue soften and melt under the microcurrent gloves. I can look forward to steady progress. I heartily recommend this treatment.

~ Devin Starlanyl, MD  (author of "Fibromyalgia and Myofascial Pain: A Survivor's Manual")

Additional Info about FSM at the ICIM

The process is painless and you will be walked through every step to ensure you know what to expect. Several treatments may be necessary to ensure optimal recovery from injury or illness. For Frequency Specific Microcurrent to be effective, you must come hydrated to your appointment. This therapy can typically be billed to most commercial insurance companies as electrical muscle stimulation.
