What is the Microcurrent?
Microcurrent is a non-invasive and painless technology providing sub-sensational stimulation through a “micro (small)-current”. This stimulation restores your body’s own natural energy stores through detoxification and rebuilding cells which enables greater healing on multiple levels like metabolism and stress reduction.
The current works with naturally occurring energy patterns in the body by way of the acupuncture meridian system. Through these specifically chosen points we work with the energy in the body to decrease any systemic inflammation, decongest organs and systems, and increase ATP (the cell’s energy) by up to 500%!**
In conjunction with proper nutrition, microcurrent facilitates a profound rebalancing of energy patterns. Depending upon what your goals are, we offer 8 microcurrent protocols, to help improve your health and overall vitality. Each session is one hour long and will leave you relaxed and rejuvenated.
Weight Loss – Detoxify your lymphatic system, reduce inflammation to the weight loss organs and eliminate cravings. This program includes a 10-week weight loss meal plan and more. For optimal results, 12 consecutive sessions are recommended.
Stress Relief – Reduce stress hormones and inflammation due to emotional imbalances. This program includes techniques to reduce stress as well. For optimal results, at least 6 consecutive sessions are recommended.
Digestive Repair – Soothe and repair the digestive tract and reduce inflammation in order to heal your leaky gut. This program includes a gut healing meal plan. For optimal results, at least 6 consecutive sessions are recommended.
Digestive Repair 2.0 – Similar to the original protocol, however, this protocol targets the entire gastrointestinal system. This program includes a gut healing meal plan. For optimal results, at least 6 consecutive sessions are recommended.
Sleep Repair – Fall asleep faster and stay asleep by calming and cooling your nervous system. This protocol includes sleep tips as well. For optimal results, at least 6 consecutive sessions are recommended.
Energy Restoration – Tonify your adrenals and clear exhaustion from the body. Tips to naturally improve adrenal support are also provided. For optimal results, at least 6 consecutive sessions are recommended.
Immune Enhancement – Decongest the lymphatic, respiratory and immune system for both acute and chronic issues. Immune boosting tips are also provided. For optimal results, at least 12 consecutive sessions are recommended.
Balance – Revitalize the natural homeostatic response in the body to achieve any health goal. Tips to find balance in all aspects of health are provided. For optimal results, at least 6 consecutive sessions are recommended.
**Microcurrent is NOT recommended for:
- Epilepsy/clients experiencing seizures
- Individuals going through cancer treatment
- Pregnant women
- Clients with active bleeding areas
- Individuals with a cardiac device (pacemaker/defibrillator)
Microcurrent Commonly Asked Questions & Answers:
What technically is Microcurrent?
A microcurrent is an electrical charge measured in millionths of an amp. Microcurrent is the innate electrical charge in our body. Our brainwave and heartbeat are examples of our internal microcurrent. By comparison, a TENS unit and the EMG muscle test utilize milliamp current which is 1,000 x’s greater than microcurrent. Microcurrent is a physical therapy modality that has been used for the past 20 years. It originally dates back to the early 1900’s and the work of Dr. Albert Abrams.
Is Microcurrent painful?
No, microcurrent is sub-sensational. The current is so gentle it does not stimulate the sensory nerves and register as a pain signal. This is why we don’t feel the microcurrent charges of our brainwaves and electrical charge in our hearts or nerves.
What are frequencies and how do they work?
Frequencies are a measurement of an electrical charge. The microcurrent we use at our office delivers frequencies within a range of .01 to 999 Hz. Think of a piano key hammer striking the piano wire. The result is a frequency that produces an audible sound, and distinct pitch and tone. Microcurrent frequencies seem to be able to resonate with biologic tissue and change the structure of the tissue when the frequency is correct. Once the tissue is corrected and stable it seems to be able to stay in the new configuration. Specific frequencies target specific tissues and conditions in the tissues. The various frequencies of body tissues have been mapped enabling treatment to be frequency specific. For example, in The Ideal Weight Program, we use frequencies to stimulate movement (50 Hz) of the lymph (13 Hz).
What is the intensity setting?
Intensity refers to the amount of pressure pushing the microcurrent into the body. Think of water in a garden hose that can be turned up high or down to a trickle. The intensity range of our microcurrent we use in the office is 25 uA to 600 uA. The adage that “more is better” is not a given with microcurrent.
What are the benefits?
Microcurrent speaks intimately with the Qi, or the innate cellular energy of the body. It is a supportive treatment to the body. Other benefits are:
- promotes healing
- improves circulation
- reduces inflammation
- absorbed directly and efficiently into the body
Are there side effects?
Because microcurrent increases cellular metabolism quickly, although it is rare, some clients may experience a detox-like reaction experienced as fatigue or flu-like symptoms. Generally, these side effects are short in duration. They may appear within 90 minutes and last up to 24 hours. No lasting adverse reactions have been reported. Microcurrent has a history of being safe and effective.
