Micro Current & E-Stim
Releases Tense Muscles
Increases Cellular Healing Rates
Micro Current is a treatment method used to promote healing from trauma, such as recovery from surgery or an injury. It's also very helpful at decreasing inflammation and tension in the body. The way it works is a very light electrical current is applied to the area of pain or injury. The electrical current has a micro-intensity level and so there is little to no sensation. With this minimal increase of electricity applied to the tissue, there's an increases of energy on a cellular level; relaxing muscles and increasing the rate of regeneration. Just as children have a higher rate of cellular regeneration, micro current replicates the quality of youthful healing on the problematic areas of the body, making you feel better right away.
E-Stim, also known as Electrical Stimulation, is very similar to Micro Current. E-Stim is also a small current which is used to relax tense muscle, and also increases the therapeutic effects of acupuncture points; regulating the body's hormones and endocrine system (HPA axis). The current can sometimes be felt as involuntary muscle twitching, which in turn is the mechanism for relaxing the muscle cells. It's very effective for alleviating pain and releasing tense muscles which obstruct healthy body alignment. E-Stim is a therapy used by many physical therapists, chiropractors, and acupuncturists; it can even be used to help manage the pain of labor and child birth.
