” I accelerated my own healing. Just 11 weeks post operative repair of a fully ruptured Achilles Tendon I was back cycling, balancing on one foot and doing heal raises. My surgeon was astounded by my progress when I went for my check up! Thanks to Frequency Micro current my scar is minimal, there has been little to no build up of stubborn scar tissue and I have full range of movement. Even I am astounded at how good my repair and rehab has been. I knew Frequency Specific Micro-current was good but my own experience has been unbelievable. My surgeon said it would be six months until I can stretch the tendon. I am pleased to report he was wrong! “

From personal experience, I felt better after one treatment on an old hip injury, my pain was greatly reduced and my hip was more mobile. After three treatments I can honestly say I feel great and never realised I could be totally pain free. I would recommend two treatments close together (4-7 days) so that we can renew the tissues, get pain relief and start retraining your postural patterns to prevent a recurrence.
As a general guide, acute problems such as a minor fall, sprains, athletic pains or injury generally resolve with a couple of treatments.
More chronic complex problems such as old injuries, will generally take a few more treatments. For conditions such as arthritis and fibromyalgia this would be ongoing pain management.
The Microcurrent is applied either through sticky pads placed on your skin, or via graphite gloves wrapped in towels. It may be necessary to remove some clothes. Eg, working on your shoulder would require your shirt off.
