Why do we use black graphite
The graphite gloves
conduct the current from the machine to your body. The gloves allow the
doctor to feel your muscles and put the current exactly where it is needed.
It is believed the shape of the gloves makes them a more effective way
of delivering the current to the muscles.
What are the pads for?
The pads are a more subtle way of delivering the current to your body.
The pads deliver frequencies to your whole system, not just the muscles.
The frequencies used with the pads are thought to work like electronic
Why is it necessary to change frequencies on the machine?
It has been observed that specific frequencies seem to target specific
conditions in the tissues. In many cases the tissues will suddenly soften
and become less painful when the correct combination of frequencies are
chosen. This softening and the pain relief that comes with it seems to
be long lasting and in some cases permanent.
What are the side effects?
Microcurrent changes muscle tissue, softens scar tissue, and increases
circulation with the effect of removing long stored waste products and
increasing cellular metabolism so quickly that there is often a detoxification
reaction after treatment. Some people have a similar reaction after a
massage but the reaction after Microcurrent is stronger because so much
is accomplished in such a short period of time. These toxins may have
been accumulating over years.
As the released toxins enter your bloodstream, they will eventually reach
and be processed by your liver in a detoxification pathway, then dumped
out of your body. Your liver has enzymes that can normally process all
toxins, however such a dramatic increase in toxins all at once may cause
some side effects to be experienced. These include: nausea, fatigue, drowsiness,
a temporary increase in pain, and a flu-like feeling.
These side effects, if experienced, may occur during treatment or may
not be noticed until perhaps 90 minutes after treatment, and could last
from 4 to 24 hours. Taking antioxidants and/or liver support supplementations
immediately after the treatment will help neutralize/process those toxins
faster. Drinking two liters of water in the two hours immediately following
treatment will greatly help facilitate/accelerate your liver detoxification
There have been no lasting adverse reactions reported. FSM has a history
of being very safe.
Do the benefits last?
Every patient responds individually, but the changes to the tissues seem
to be long lasting. About 60 to 80% of the changes created in one treatment
last until the next treatment, about 4 to 7 days. Your muscles are used
to responding the way they are and may return to the old configuration
if not treated again, although some patients have had permanent changes
with one treatment. In many cases only one treatment is needed to make
the pain disappear.
The principal effects of FSM are that it:
1. Provides physiologic current
2. Restores normal cell membrane stability
3. Normalizes conduction of nerve pathways
4. Normalizes the rate of cellular metabolism, protein synthesis and waste
5. Energizes the patient's bioelectric field in beneficial ways
In addition, the latest research shows it can cause substantial reductions
in blood levels of inflammatory and pain chemicals and large increases
in anti-inflammatory and nervous system protecting chemicals. Many patients
report feeling relaxed and energized after a treatment which typically
lasts 20-30 minutes.
Everything in this world is made of energy: you, me, a rock, a table,
blades of grass, etc. Since energy is actually vibration, it means that
everything that exists vibrates. This is a simple law of the universe
to which there are no exceptions. Modern day (quantum) physics has proven
that energy and matter are one in the same, thereby proving our point.
