Gentle & Effective Remedial Therapy

Frequency Specific Microcurrent - FSM

In our Naturopathic Holistic Care practice, we utilize a low Hz microcurrent frequency therapy win support of the body's natural self-regulatory and healing mechanisms.

Are you struggling with chronic pain or recovering from an injury? Our integrated service combining remedial therapy with Frequency Specific Microcurrent (FSM) offers a personalized approach to help you achieve relief and recovery.

 

What is Remedial Therapy?

Remedial therapy involves tailored treatments to alleviate pain, restore function, and improve muscle and joint health. Techniques like deep tissue massage, trigger point therapy, and myofascial release are used to address your specific needs, targeting areas of tension and promoting overall wellness.

What is Frequency Specific Microcurrent (FSM)?

FSM uses low-level electrical currents to stimulate healing and reduce pain. These microcurrents are customized to specific frequencies that target different tissues and conditions. FSM can reduce inflammation, enhance cellular repair, and improve circulation, making it a powerful tool in your recovery journey.

 

How Does the Combination Work?

  1. Enhanced Pain Relief: Combining manual techniques with FSM provides synergistic pain relief. Manual therapy addresses muscle tension and structural issues, while FSM reduces inflammation and accelerates tissue healing.

  2. Improved Healing: FSM promotes cellular repair and increases ATP production, enhancing the healing effects of remedial therapy. This is particularly beneficial for chronic injuries or post-surgical rehabilitation.

  3. Personalized Treatment: Your treatment plan is tailored to your specific needs. We adjust the manual techniques and FSM frequencies based on your progress and response to treatment.

  4. Reduced Inflammation: FSM’s anti-inflammatory effects complement the muscle-relaxing and circulation-boosting benefits of remedial therapy, leading to faster reduction in swelling and quicker recovery times.

 

Holistic Approach

Our comprehensive approach addresses both the symptoms and underlying causes of your condition, leading to better long-term outcomes and overall wellness

Frequency specific microcurrent does not cause damaging impact in its application. It is gentle and strongly stimulates tissue mitochondrial recovery to stimulate the healing process from the inside out.

 

Everything is Energy 

Frequency Specific Microcurrent (FSM) is an advanced therapeutic technique that utilizes low-level electrical currents to stimulate the body's natural healing processes. Picture it like using a precise, targeted electrical signal to reboot your body's internal systems. It's a bit like hitting the reset button on your body's cellular functions.

Every cell in your body has its own unique electrical frequency. When you're healthy, these frequencies hum along in harmony, keeping everything running smoothly. But when you're injured, sick, or experiencing pain, these frequencies can go out of whack, causing all manner of problems.

By delivering specific frequencies to targeted areas of your body, FSM aims to re balance and harmonise these disrupted frequencies. It's like fine-tuning your body's electrical system to optimize performance and promote healing. Because it stimulates and supports the body's own healing capacity, it can be used for most issues obstructing the process of wellness and healing. It is particularly useful for dissolving scar tissue and adhesions, working with the nervous system, digestive system, vagal tone, heart rhythm, immune regulation, pain and neurological issues. 

What's great about FSM is that it's safe, non-invasive, painless and able to be tailored to what is required.  This therapy is versatile and able to address a wide range of health issues. Whether you're dealing with injury, chronic pain, adhesions, autoimmune disorders, or neurological issues like migraines, neuralgia, chronic fatigue or fibromyalgia, FSM offers a gentle yet effective way to support your body's own healing resources.

Think of FSM as a battery for your body's repair crew. Shown to increase ATP, cellular energy, by up to 500%, FSM is one of the few therapies that can directly stimulate and support mitochondrial function, enhancing cellular repair, to help your body heal itself faster, function better, and accelerate recovery. It's like giving your body a much-needed tune-up, an electron bath.

 

What are FSMs origins?

Frequency Specific Microcurrent (FSM) is a specialized therapy technique developed by chiropractor Dr. Carolyn McMakin.

Dr. McMakin began her work with FSM in 1995, incorporating frequencies passed down from a Canadian osteopath and a 1920s machine. Her unique protocols for treating myofascial pain were presented at the American Back Society's 1997 national meeting and published in 1998 in Topics in Clinical Chiropractic. FSM utilizes microcurrent devices delivering ultra-low frequencies, in the millionths of an amp, complementing the healing process naturally.

Many published studies show it to be an effective non-pharmaceutical, non-invasive way to manage acute and chronic pain. More information here

 

How is the treatment received?

The treatment is administered through the application of warm, damp towels to specific areas of the body, such as the neck and abdomen. The current used is sub-perceptible, operating at frequencies below the threshold of human perception. Clients lie down on the massage table after their Naturopathic review, and can drift off as FSM is applied, it can be quite a relaxing experience.

How many sessions? 

For acute issues 1-3 sessions are recommended. In chronic pain or protracted issues, four to ten sessions support the body's own return to balance.

Because we treat holistically we are always seeking to treat at the causative layer of issues. We don't specialise in any one area because all areas are connected, there is no separation of systems in the human body, a problem in one area will affect all areas in some way. We treat the person, not the disease.

Offering a holistic approach to Wellness 

In my very long career as a Naturopath I have seen many people seeking to heal themselves from many deferent health challenges. Personally I find that FSM brings benefit to the Naturopathic process. 

In 25 years, I have seem many things in clinic, and have seen excellent results in patient outcomes in the areas of:

  • Nervous system issues

  • ‘Never well since’ an accident, injury, infection, traumatic event, stress, medication use, mould exposure, insect bite.

  • Immune issues 

  • Gut problems 

  • Degenerative conditions 

  • Hormone & Menstrual issues

  • Inflammatory conditions

  • Skin conditions 

  • Metabolic problems 

  • Emotional issues, mental health support

Understanding what is going on in the body helps us better support what their body is trying to do to heal itself. Removing the obstacles to this process (scar tissue, adhesions, inflammation, energy deficit, stress, infection, nutritional depletion, poor diet, insufficient sleep...) while supporting the body's needs, allows for the healing process to be more efficinet, naturally.

 

Often people think that the symptoms are the problem where they are actually evidence that the body trying to undertake a healing process (eg: fever). We want to listen to this information and look at what is going on upstream of the symptoms, to identify the causative drivers of dysfunction. Understanding this can bring a great deal of clarity to the process of getting well.
