Frequency Specific Microcurrent In Toronto
Frequency Specific Microcurrent (FSM) helps reduce inflammation to eliminate pain and aid in the healing of an acute injury or after an operative procedure.
Inflammation is the body’s natural response to an injury or infection. However, too much of it can cause additional harm to the body after a sprain, fracture or wound. We know to apply ice immediately after an acute injury to lessen swelling and thus reduce the damage to surrounding soft tissue. FSM does, even more, to control inflammation and shorten the length of time needed to heal.
FSM is a modality that uses electrical stimulation to heal tissue. Physiotherapists and other health practitioners have used similar, less refined methods for decades. The ability to adjust the frequency is what makes FSM so much more effective.

Our brain uses electric signals to communicate with our bodies. The brain can send signals such as “activate this muscle” and receive messages from the spinal chord such as “pain.” FSM uses the same type of electric current to effect change within the body. Different frequencies can help eliminate pain or reactivate cells that have shut down due to injury, allowing them to receive nutrients to enable healing. FSM treatment has been known to increase the production of adenosine triphosphate (ATP) by 500 percent. ATP is what cells use for energy.
The session may take 30 to 60 minutes depending on conditions. You must be well hydrated to allow the FSM to be effective. During a FSM session, you rest comfortably while the microcurrent is delivered through electrodes placed on the area of treatment. Because the current is the same as what your body produces, there is no unpleasant sensation. This subtle stimulation of cells reduces inflammation, breaks up scar tissue, eases pain sensations and accelerated post-surgery or post-injury recovery. It has even been known to elevated mood, help shrink fat cells and tighten skin! That’s pain relief with an added bonus.
There are no contraindications for FSM and no documented risks, however, it is not recommended during the pregnancy to have the current going through the stomach, because an infant’s nervous system hasn’t fully developed yet.
