What is Frequency Specific Microcurrent (FSM)!?

What is FSM?


FSM is a system of treatment that uses micro-amperage current and the resonance effect of frequencies on tissue and conditions to reduce pain and improve health.

The History of FSM

Between 1900 and 1934, several medical and osteopathic practitioners used frequencies and electromagnetic therapies to treat their patients.

 In 1934, the American Medical Association stated the electromagnetic therapies, homeopathic remedies, nutrition and herbs were unscientific and that drugs and surgery were the future of medicine. Doctors were threatened with losing their licences if they did not stop using frequencies and electromagnetic devices. The treatments and equipment fell out of use and by 1951, the machines were banned by the FDA.

 In 1946, an osteopath found a 1922 device in the backroom of her new practice. The device came with a list of frequencies that were used with a two-channel microcurrent gadget. The results were immediate and fascinating.

In 1995, Dr. Carolyn McMakin received the list of frequencies and began treating patients. She started teaching the technique in 1997 to see if the effects were reproducible. Her students were achieving the same results that Dr. McMakin had observed. Classes continued to be taught in the US and around the world leading now over 1800 FSM practitioners worldwide today. Frequency Specific Microcurrent in Pain Management (Elsevier 2010) and The Resonance Effect (North Atlantic Books 2017) make the frequency protocols available to the public.

What is Microcurrent?

Microcurrent is current in millionths of an ampere. Micro-amperage current is the same kind of current your body produces on its own so you won’t feel the current. Microcurrent has been shown to increase ATP energy production in cells by 500% and has been documented by its ability to improve the healing of wounds and fractures.

What are the Frequencies & Where did they come from?

The FSM frequiencies are electrical pulses measured in hertz or pulses per second. All of the FSM frequencies are below 1000 Hz.

FSM frequencies came from the infamous list that came with the device made in 1922. When the generation of physicians who developed the frequencies died, all of their history went with them. There is no way to know how this list of frequencies was developed.

What can the Frequencies Treat?

In addition to the vast list above, the frequencies appear to change pain, function and even the structure in a large number of clinical conditions. FSM is exceptional in reducing inflammation, treating fibromyalgia, nerve, joint and muscle pain and dissolving or softening scar tissue. Patients who are treated within a few hours of new injuries, inclusive of vehicle accidents and surgeries, see reduced pain and an extremely accelerated healing process.

There are no guarantees that every protocol is going to be effective in every patient. Generally, the frequencies either work or they simply have no effect. So long as appropriate proven therapies are not delayed or withheld, FSM won’t further worsen the condition. Practitioners go by the rule that FSM is to be used as an adjunct to therapeutics appropriate to their discipline for the patient after proper diagnosis.

How do the Frequencies Work?

The data from research suggests that the frequencies change cell signaling by changing cell membrane receptors that then change cell genetic expression and thereby change cell function and structure.

How are Frequencies Different from Pharmaceutical Drugs?

Pharmacology works to change cell receptors like a key in a lock whereas frequencies change the receptors like a key fob, with a signal.

Does FSM Work on Everyone?

Patients must be hydrated in order to benefit from FSM. We advised every patient to drink at least one quart of water 4 hours preceding treatment. If you are chronically under hydrated, you may need more water intake for treatment to be effective.

The effectiveness of FSM also depends heavily on accurate diagnoses. FSM will treat various pain generators effectively, but the practitioner must treat the right tissues for the correct condition to affectively eliminate the pain.

Is FSM FDA Approved?

The FDA has not evaluated the use of resonance therapy or frequencies. The research, data, and conclusions apply only to the observed clinical effects of FSM and are not intended as claims for the frequencies for any device use. FSM does not make any claims about being able to diagnose, cure, mitigate, treat or prevent any condition or disease.

What Machine is Used for FSM?

All of the FSM clinical and animal research was done with a two channel, battery operated microcurrent machine. Both the frequency and current can be set independently on each of the two channels. The frequencies are delivered with three-digit accuracy from 0.1Hz to 999 Hz using an adjustable ramped square wave. The direct current is modified by circuitry to an alternating or polarized positive square wave. Any device that has the same parameters should be able to reproduce the published outcome if the diagnosis and treatment are correct.
