Microcurrent Therapy - The Healing Frequencies

Microcurrent is a method of treatment that falls into fields of medicine, such as Bio-Energy Medicine or Electromedicine. Microcurrent Therapy has been studied for nearly a century, but only recently has it seen a resurgence in the medical field. It explores the use of frequencies (such as light, vibration, resonance and sound) and current to treat a variety of health conditions, including those physical and emotional in nature. Microcurrent is one of many types of devices that utilize frequency to enhance health and well-being.

MICROCURRENT THERAPY

Microcurrent therapy has already been widely used in the cosmetic industry, especially in facial equipment as in anti-wrinkle/anti-aging devices, as well as in Acupuncture, sports injury recovery, and the treatment of pain. Microcurrent devices are approved in the category of TENS devices by the FDA. Traditional TENS devices deliver milliamp current, which blocks pain messages that are trying to get up the spine to the brain. Microcurrent, on the other hand, delivers a very low level, subsensory micro-amperage DC current, which is a 1000 times less than traditional TENS devices. It has been shown in published studies to increase production of ATP by up to 500% in tissues. Adenosine triphosphate (ATP) is the biochemical way to store and use energy in cells. We are made of cells. Without ATP energy, cells would not survive.

In the book written by Orthopedic surgeon and author of The Body Electric, Dr Robert Becker, MD, he noted that because the body’s nervous system runs on DC current, the most effective healing occurs with DC stimulation. It is noted that the human nervous system appears to not respond well to strong, disruptive stimuli. According to Dr. Becker, therapy approaches such as TENS appear to be “screaming” at the nerves, rather than “whispering” to them as they would through microcurrent stimulation.

This can also be explained by the Arndt/Schulz law of physics, where German psychiatrist Rudolf Arndt (1835-1900) and German pharmacologist Hugo Schulz (1853-1932) stated that weak stimuli increase physiologic activity, while strong stimuli inhibit activity. When working with pain, it suggests that less electricity could be more effective than more of it. Arndt-Schulz law may also explain why micro-amperage currents may be more effective than milli-amperage currents for pain relief.

AVAZZIA

Avazzia Microcurrent Biofeedback treatments are available. Avazzia RSI device is an FDA approved, single channel microcurrent device to treat pain- chronic and acute. It may also help to decrease inflammation, accelerate healing, detoxify, reduce swelling, reduce sinus pressure, improve organ functions, reduce neuropathy, reduce appearance of scars, reduce adhesions, and more.

MEND TECHNOLOGY

Mend technology is a programmable Frequency Specific Microcurrent device that uses gentle DC current over 2 channels to deliver frequency pairs, with one frequency for the condition and the other for a designated tissue. This allows for much more specialized treatments of a variety conditions.

Collectively, microcurrent devices assist in:
  • Rehydrating cells and tissue

  • Reducing pain

  • Speeding up wound healing

  • Improving blood circulation

  • Promoting lymphatic circulation/drainage

  • Increasing waste disposal

  • Improving nutrition absorption

  • Increasing ATP (energy in the cell) by up to 500%

  • Promotes elastin and collagen production

These devices may be helpful in treating a variety of conditions:
  • Acute and chronic pain reduction, both generalized and specific areas in the body

  • Post-operative pain, swelling, and bruising

  • Post-operative reaction to some implanted devices or hardware

  • Neuropathy and Diabetic Neuropathy

  • Circulatory/Venous stagnation or insufficiency

  • Delayed onset muscle soreness (exercise soreness)

  • Acute and Chronic injuries to muscles, bones, joints

  • Sprains/Strains

  • Fractures

  • Wound Healing

  • Concussion to the head and/or the body

  • TBI (Traumatic Brain Injuries)

  • TIA and Strokes

  • Scars and Adhesions (including post surgical, radiation scars, and burn scars)

  • Arthritis

  • Nerve Pain

  • Issues related to exposure to mold, chemicals, radiation, lyme, metals, and other harmful organic and inorganic substances

  • Lymphatic system issues

  • Inflammation (local or systemic)

  • Carpal Tunnel Syndrome

  • Scleroderma (Connective tissue disorder)

  • Fibromyalgia

  • Bursitis

  • Acute or Chronic muscle tension/spasms

  • Frozen shoulder

  • Skin care

  • Anti-aging

  • Vision issues

  • Neurological conditions

  • Diastasis Recti (torn abdominal wall)

  • Emotionally based conditions (PTSD, depression, anxiety, pain)

  • Research continues on the efficacy of frequency medicine with various conditions. Please note that these devices are not diagnostic, curative, nor meant to replace medical intervention.

Microcurrent is considered safe for most individuals. However, it should be used either cautiously, or not all with:

  • Pregnancy

  • Young children or infants

  • Pacemakers

  • Implanted devices such stimulators and pumps

  • Cancer/Tumors

  • Cardiac arrhytmias

  • Organ transplants

  • Prone to seizures

  • Direct use on open wounds

It is safe to use with:

  • Metal Pins, screws, plates

  • Artificial joints

  • Stents
