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.

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.

Video: Carolina Brooks (Naturopath, Herbal Medicine and FSM practitioner) and Eva Hadjidemetri (Physiotherapist, Clear Passage and FSM practitioner) discuss the benefits of Frequency Specific Microcurrent (FSM) and how they use FSM in the clinic.

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.
