Frequency Specific Microcurrent

What is Frequency Specific Microcurrent?

Frequency Specific Microcurrent (FSM) is an amazing new technique to help patients recover from myofascial pain, fibromyalgia, sports injuries, concussion and many other health concerns.

The way FSM works is that it provides a very minute amount of electrical current to stimulate the cells, which in turn creates cell energy or ATP. This cell energy enables the body to increase its ability to self heal, so patients can recover faster.

Frequency Specific Microcurrent treatments have been known to help

• successfully treat chronic and acute pain
• speed healing of traumatic wounds as well as reduce bruises and swelling
• speed healing of acute injuries  
• reduce inflammation caused by cytokines in the blood
• improve moods (by increasing beta endorphins)
• synthesize protein
• and much more

At Silicon Valley Natural Health, we apply FSM using the best practices in frequency protocols, diagnosing pain complaints and providing hands-on use of the microcurrent equipment. Most patients feel absolutely nothing during treatment, due to the very minute levels of current used.

Patients come to us for FSM to treat a variety of health issues:


Carpal Tunnel Syndrome

Joint Pain

Tennis/Golf Elbow

Herniated Discs

Degenerative Discs 

Myofacial Pain

Peripheral Neuropathy

Dental Infections and Pain

Neck and Shoulder Pain

Muscle Spasms

PTSD and Stress


Unsuccessful Back Surgery Pain


Sacroiliac Joint Pain

Scar Tissue Pain

FSM was developed by Dr. Carolyn McMakin in 1995 using frequencies passed on from an osteopath in Canada who had a practice that came with a machine made in the 1920’s. Dr. McMakin developed protocols for the treatment of myofascial pain in 1996 and presented her clinical data at the American Back Society national meeting in December 1997. In 1998, she published the paper on the “Treatment of chronic resistant myofascial pain in the head, neck, and face” in Topics in Clinical Chiropractic in addition to other published FSM papers.
