Frequency Specific Microcurrent (FSM) is a cutting-edge treatment that uses low-level electrical currents to stimulate the body’s natural healing processes. This non-invasive therapy has been shown to be effective in managing pain, reducing inflammation, and promoting tissue repair. FSM has been used successfully to treat a wide range of conditions, including sports injuries, chronic pain, and nerve damage.
Discover the benefits of Frequency Specific Microcurrent (FSM), a non-invasive therapy that uses low-level electrical currents to manage pain, reduce inflammation, and promote tissue repair. Learn how FSM works, what conditions can be treated with it, and what to expect during an FSM treatment. Contact your healthcare provider today to see if FSM may be right for you.
How does FSM work?
FSM uses a device that delivers low-level electrical currents to specific areas of the body. The currents are delivered at specific frequencies, which correspond to different types of tissue in the body. For example, frequencies that are used to treat muscle tissue are different from those used to treat nerve tissue. The currents are delivered through electrodes that are placed on the skin near the area being treated.
The electrical currents used in FSM are very low, typically in the range of millionths of an ampere (microcurrents). These currents are similar to the electrical currents that naturally occur in the body and are believed to stimulate the body’s natural healing processes. FSM works by increasing ATP production, reducing inflammation, and promoting tissue repair.
What conditions can be treated with FSM?
Frequency Specific Microcurrent (FSM) can be used to treat a wide range of conditions, including:
- Chronic pain: FSM has been shown to be effective in reducing pain for conditions such as fibromyalgia, arthritis, and chronic neck and back pain.
- Sports injuries: Can be used to speed up the healing process of sports injuries, such as sprains, strains, and muscle tears.
- Nerve damage: FSM can be used to stimulate the nerves and promote nerve healing, which can be effective in treating conditions such as neuropathy and sciatica.
- Post-surgical pain: FSM can be used to reduce pain and promote healing after surgery.
- Scar tissue: FSM can be used to break up scar tissue and promote the healing of damaged tissue.
- Headaches and migraines: FSM can be used to reduce the frequency and intensity of headaches and migraines.
- Digestive disorders: May be helpful in managing symptoms associated with irritable bowel syndromes (IBS), such as abdominal pain, bloating, and constipation.
- Emotional disorders: Helps regulate brain activity and promote relaxation, which can be effective in treating depression and anxiety.
- Respiratory disorders: FSM can be used to treat conditions such as asthma and allergies.
- Hormonal imbalances: FSM can be used to treat hormonal imbalances such as menopause and thyroid disorders.
It is important to note that FSM may not be appropriate for all individuals or all conditions. If you are considering FSM treatment, be sure to discuss it with your healthcare provider to determine whether it is an appropriate treatment option for your individual needs.
What can I expect during an FSM treatment?
An FSM treatment session typically lasts between 30 and 60 minutes. During the session, electrodes will be placed on the skin near the area being treated. The electrical currents will be delivered through the electrodes, and you may feel a slight tingling sensation. The treatment is painless, and most patients find it relaxing.
The number of treatments needed depends on the condition being treated and the individual patient. Some patients may see improvement after just one treatment, while others may require several treatments to see results. Your healthcare provider will work with you to develop a treatment plan that is tailored to your individual needs.
Is FSM safe?
FSM is a safe and non-invasive treatment. The electrical currents used in FSM are very low and are similar to the electrical currents that naturally occur in the body. There are few, if any, side effects associated with FSM. Some patients may experience mild tingling or redness at the site of the electrodes, but these effects are temporary and usually go away on their own.
Is FSM for Everyone?
While Frequency Specific Microcurrent (FSM) is generally considered a safe and effective treatment, there are certain situations in which it may not be appropriate. Here are some examples of who should not do FSM:
- Pregnant women: While there is no definitive evidence that FSM is harmful to pregnant women or their babies, there is not enough research to determine its safety. Therefore, it is generally recommended that pregnant women avoid FSM treatment.
- People with implanted devices: If you have an implanted device, such as a pacemaker or defibrillator, it is important to consult with your healthcare provider before undergoing FSM treatment. The electrical currents used in FSM could interfere with the functioning of your implanted device.
- People with epilepsy: FSM involves the use of electrical currents, which can trigger seizures in people with epilepsy. If you have epilepsy or a history of seizures, it is important to discuss this with your healthcare provider before undergoing FSM treatment.
- People with open wounds or infections: If you have an open wound or infection in the area to be treated, FSM may not be appropriate until the wound or infection has healed.
- People with certain medical conditions: There are certain medical conditions, such as cancer, that may make FSM treatment inappropriate. It is important to discuss any underlying medical conditions with your healthcare provider before undergoing FSM treatment.
If you are looking for a safe and effective way to manage pain, reduce inflammation, and promote tissue repair, FSM may be right for you. This cutting-edge treatment has been shown to be effective in treating a wide range of conditions, and it is non-invasive and painless. Contact your healthcare provider today to learn more about FSM and whether it may be right for you.
“Dr. Michelle is straight up MAGIC. I've seen her for arthritis in my hip, muscle tension, cosmetic acupuncture and general wellness. She's knowledgeable not just in acupuncture and Chinese medicine but functional medicine as well. Her energy is so warm and kind that you feel better just by being in her presence. I'm meant to have her in my life as a healer and if you're reading this, you're meant to as well.”Michelle H.
“I came to Dr. Iona six months ago with a hip injury. I’m an avid exerciser and could not manage my normal routine of spinning, running, tennis, yoga etc. Dr. Iona has introduced me to supplements and topicals that have greatly assisted in my recovery. The combination of acupuncture, gua sha and cupping have been integral in helping me get back to vigorous exercise. I can happily say I can now run four miles and not feel any discomfort in my hip. Additionally, Dr. Iona always inquired about the developments with my physical therapy. Coming to see Dr. Iona was the best decision I could have made!”Lauren J.
“Dr. Michelle Iona is amazing! I went to her off a recommendation from another acupuncturist, Suffering with PCOS and trying to get pregnant for 2 years. I fully committed to weekly acupuncture coupled with her nutritional guidance and I’m happy to say I am currently 4 months pregnant! She is extremely easy to talk to, you can tell she really cares and provides a very well rounded approach with her treatment.If you are seeking to begin or continue acupuncture for any reason, I highly recommend Dr. Iona!”Lauren K
