Frequency Specific Microcurrent (FSM)
Steven Maschmeyer, CMTPT
What is FSM and why is it unique?Frequency specific microcurrent is a revolutionary therapy that dramatically increases the body’s ability to heal and repair itself. FSM can increase the rate of healing by as much as 5 times and do so safely and effectively.
Every function in the human body is electrically based. The electricity made inside your cells provides the power for your body. When microcurrent is applied to the body at a specific frequency (speed), it can have positive effects on the condition of tissues and organs. FSM can help the body recuperate, promote pain relief, relax muscles, dissolve scar tissue and improve healing, all at accelerated rates.
FSM is painless; you cannot even feel it. FSM provides electric current in the millionth of an ampere, which is below the stimulation threshold of sensory nerves. (Your own cells generate a current in the microamp range.)Facts about FSM:
Increases ATP (the body’s own chemical energy) production by up to 500%
Reduces Cox-mediated inflammation by approximately 60%
Increases protein synthesis by 70%
Increases amino acid transport by up to 40%
Remodels and transforms scar tissue
Increases “feel good” Beta endorphin levels
Helps restore depleted adrenal function
Reduces fracture repair time by up to 50%
Enhances DNA synthesis, insulin binding, oxygenation, cellular repair, intracellular calcium uptake and immune function
Enhances neuromuscular recovery rate between events
What does that mean to you?
Increased rate of healing
Increased range of motion
How do the frequencies work?We believe FSM works on the principle of biologic resonance. A singer can shatter glass when the note resonates with the crystal structure of the glass. Microcurrent frequencies seem to be able to resonate with the biologic tissue when the correct frequency is applied.
Each cell has an ideal resonant frequency. When your body experiences any type of injury, trauma, stress or increased inflammation, the normal resonant frequency of that tissue is altered. The desired effect of FSM is to return the tissue back to its normal frequency.
FSM frequencies address a wide variety of physical conditions, reduce pain, and improve function. Conditions effectively treated with FSM:
Low back and neck pain
How long do the benefits last?Every patient responds individually but the changes to the muscle seem to be long lasting. About 60-80% of the changes created in one treatment last until the next treatment, about 4-7 days. Your muscles are often used to exist the way they are and may return to the old configuration if not treated again. Although patients have had permanent changes in one treatment, the average number of treatments depends on the complexity of the problem.
Treatments also need to be supported by appropriate lifes
