Microcurrent Therapy

What is Microcurrent Therapy?

Electrical Nourishment for the body

Microcurrent therapy is an FDA approved therapeutic modality that uses an electrical current that is just above the levels of electrical exchange that occur in our bodies. It can help speed up injury recovery for tendon, ligament, and muscle injuries, as well as provide many other healing benefits. 

The theory behind microcurrent therapy is that by introducing a surface application of microamperes to the body, it can restore lost positive and negative electrons. These electrons are the very essence of every living cell. The body is able to utilize this outside source of minute electrical currents to accelerate its own healing mechanisms.

Benefits to the Body: What it does

  • Improved circulation and dilated blood vessels.
  • Increased amount of red blood cells.
  • Nerve repair and healing without scar tissue.
  • Stimulating lymph circulation.
  • Elimination of wastes and toxins.
  • Increased ATP production up to 500% (ATP=adenosine triphosphate).
  • Increased excretion of fluids through the kidneys.
  • Lengthening the connective tissue, reducing or preventing formation of adhesion and reducing the danger of fibrosis.
  • Improved circulation and nutrition to joints.

Heal Damaged Cells: How it works

When cells are damaged they become electrically imbalanced. Because microamperes are close to the electrical level of the body’s cells, the application of microcurrent is able to help re-balance a cell’s electricity. This returns damaged cells to a normal state and initiates cellular activity. Electrical current naturally takes the path of least resistance through the body, which means at the site of an injury the body’s electrical current will go around the defect rather than through it. It is an ongoing process to heal damaged cells, and microcurrrent – like the body’s own electrical current – likes to go around the injury, taking the path of least resistance. However by applying microcurrent to the site of an injury, the microamperes current is able to pick up where the body fails. Through regular microcurrent treatments, the current is able to gradually close the gap and help heal the damaged area. This helps stimulate healing and will accelerate the body’s healing process, as well as increasing the level of ATP (Adenosine Triphosphate). ATP is considered by some biologists as the “currency of life.” It is a dynamic reservoir of energy that is integral to the function of nearly every cell in the body.

Speed Recovery, Prevent Injury, Maintain Health

Microcurrent therapy can be used on people, horses, dogs, and many other types of animals. The techniques and specific applications vary depending what microcurrent device you’re using, who you’re treating, and what issue you’re looking to address. The following are a few examples of the types of injuries that can benefit from microcurrent therapy. With any issue or condition, it is always important to first talk to your doctor or veterinarian and to work closely with them.

  • General all-body soreness
  • Healing wounds
  • Speeding up the healing process
  • Boosting the immune system
  • Tendon and ligament injuries
  • Muscle tears or strains
  • Arthritis
  • Lung and respiratory issues
