What is Frequency Specific Microcurrent

FSM is an emerging method for treating many pathological conditions.

A pair of frequencies of microampere- level electrical stimulation are applied to particular places on the skin of a patient via combinations of conductive graphite gloves, moistened towels or gel electrode patches.

FSM has emerged over the last decade as a reproducible treatment for various somatic and visceral conditions including fibromyalgia, chronic fatigue and myofascial and neuropathic pain.

The technique is based on pairs of frequencies, low-level microcurrent amperage currents and the principle of biologic resonance.

“My knee has been totally transformed! From a child, I have suffered with knee difficulties and tried all sorts of practices. Today, the condition that my knee is in, I never imagined possible…”

“I have suffered with the painful condition, Morton’s Neuroma for over three years. I was both surprised and relieved to find that after my very first session I was able to walk for an hour without pain. The treatment is painless, simple and very relaxing. Now, after four follow-on sessions, I can feel distinct improvement in my foot, together with a sense of general well-being. I highly recommend this treatment.”

“from the very first treatment I received I immediately felt a big improvement in my condition”

FSM practitioners consistently observe a profound and easily palpable change in tissue texture within seconds of applying frequencies appropriate for a particular disorder. This “state change” can usually be detected anywhere on the body when one has found the correct frequencies and placements of the conductors (conductive graphite gloves, gloves wrapped in moist cloth, or gel electrode patches), provided the patient is hydrated. The softening is not superficial, as in the epidermal layer, but is in the deeper skeletal muscles.

FSM provides clinically verifiable relief from both somatic and visceral issues, and there is still widespread acceptance that visceral dysfunctions can elevate somatic muscle tension. For example, flank muscle hypertonicity can arise secondary to renal dysfunction, and trigger points can be activated in acute appendicitis, peptic ulcer, ulcerative colitis, and diverticulitis. FSM, acupuncture, and other energy medicine techniques document interactions between the epidermis and internal organs.

Relationships between somatic and visceral systems can be described in terms of chemistry (metabolic imbalances in the periphery might impact organ functions and vice versa); in terms of neurology, such as the convergence of visceral and somatic afferent nerves; in terms of structural or fascial relationships between peripheral structures and organs; in terms related to the endocrine system and lymphatic drainage (Chapman’s Points); and in terms of energetic pathways between the skin and internal organs, as theorized, for example, in acupuncture.

Bioelectricity and microcurrent therapy for tissue healing-a narrative review

Poltawski, Leon & Watson, Tim. (2009). Bioelectricity and microcurrent therapy for tissue healing-a narrative review. Physical Therapy Reviews. 14. 104-114. 10.1179/174328809X405973. Background: Microcurrent therapy (MCT) uses electric currents similar to those produced by the body during tissue healing. It may be a particularly beneficial where endogenous healing has failed. Aim: To review evidence regarding microcurrent in tissue healing and the application of MCT.
Methods: All peer-reviewed studies concerning microcurrent and MCT were sought, and representative literature was synthesised to indicate the scope and weight of current evidence. Results: Microcurrent appears to play a significant role in the healing process, and MCT can promote healing in a variety of bone and skin lesions. The evidence for other tissues is encouraging but presently scant. Conclusion: MCT may have unrealised potential in the treatment of dysfunctional tissue healing and deserves greater attention by researchers and clinicians.

“I was suffering with long term back and shoulder pains due to the nature of my work, and after a consultation with my therapist Eva I decided to go ahead with the treatments. I noticed a big improvement in my condition after the very first session and continually grew stronger after every session, to the point where I had made a full recovery after a handful of treatments.”

“Having tried and obtained temporary relief from seeing physiotherapists and taking pain relief medications in the past for treating 2 degenerative discs in my lower back, I was prompted to try the FSM treatment offered at Sutherland Clinic.”

 “As someone who was quite sceptical to begin with I decided to book myself in for a consultation. By the end of my first treatment I was shocked to say the least… my pain dramatically reduced. I was speechless! All I did was lay on the treatment table and the non-invasive equipment was connected.”


“After several treatments, I now am enjoying great health pain free! I still come back from time-to-time for top-ups :)”

“I went with the start of a frozen shoulder Eva, my Physio treated it with a micro-current therapy from the US called FSM – I went hardly being able to move my arm and after one session I would say it was 80% better with full range of motion – quite miraculous.”


“after the first treatment I walked away without any leg pain and my legs felt light as a feather….. it was like a miracle!!!”

How does Frequency Specific Micro-current (FSM) work?

Each tissue in the body has its own specific electrical frequency, which may be disrupted by injury or disease. Specific frequencies Microcurrent applied to the affected area restores normal frequencies within the cells, resulting in remarkable improvements in pain, inflammation and function.

At the cellular level, microcurrent therapy stimulates a dramatic increase in ATP, the energy that fuels all biochemical functions in the body. It also rises protein synthesis, which is necessary for tissue repair. The subsequent enhancement in blood flow and decrease in inflammation leads to reduction in pain and muscle spasms, as well as increased range of motion.

What to expect during a typical treatment session?

When you undergo microcurrent therapy, you lie comfortably while electrodes are placed at strategic locations to direct the currents to the targeted tissues. Warm, moist towels are applied to facilitate electrical conduction.

Unlike the more familiar TENS units, which also use electrical currents to relieve pain, microcurrents therapy uses very low level electrical current that is not detectable by the person treated.

The therapist will sit at the side of you and where applicable will check the tissues and their response to the treatment.

A treatment course typically involves several sessions, and benefits accrue over time. Microcurrent therapy is safe and has no significant adverse effects. However, it is not recommended for patients who have pacemakers or are pregnant.
