What is Microcurrent Therapy?
Microcurrent therapy uses extremely low-level electrical currents (microcurrents) to treat nerve and muscle pain, inflammation, and other health challenges. Each tissue type in your body has its own signature electrical frequency, which may be disrupted by injury or disease. Microcurrent therapy simply restores normal energy within the cells, resulting in remarkable improvements in pain, inflammation, and function.
At the cellular level, this therapy stimulates a dramatic increase in ATP, the energy that fuels all biochemical functions in the body. It also increases protein synthesis, which is necessary for tissue repair. The ensuing enhancement in blood flow and decrease in inflammation translates into reductions in pain and muscle spasms and increased range of motion.
During a typical treatment, you recline or sit comfortably while specific microcurrent frequencies are delivered to targeted tissues. Electrodes are placed at strategic locations to direct the currents, and warm, moist towels are applied to facilitate conduction. Unlike the more familiar TENS units, which also use electrical currents to relieve pain, microcurrents are so weak that they don’t stimulate the sensory nerves, so you feel no shock-like sensations.
