A Testimonial

My husband sliced his finger instead of the vegetables on the mandoline (which has an extremely sharp blade) distracted by our friends arriving for Thanksgiving. I knew he needed stiches, but he refused to go to the emergency room (stubborn!). So I ran to the office and picked up the portable micro current machines and began alternating currents for new injury and wound healing. The next day, we went to Zoom Care and the doctor said of course, "You needed stiches, but it is now too late. I can put these steri strips on, but I believe you will loose this chunk of skin". She did admit, that oddly enough, some parts of the skin had begun to adhere. I continued to apply the micro current 2x per day for 10 days. The pictures speak for themselves.  His finger healed beautifully (better than if he had had stiches)! The first picture is the day after the injury and the last one is when it was fully healed."

Micro-Current Therapy

Micro-current therapy is often used for bone healing.

Microcurrent was first used at the end of the 1800’s and developed by Osteopathic Doctors, but was not an accepted procedure at that time.

Mainstream doctors began using Microcurrent to help heal fractures in the late 70s early 80s when I was in PT school. The results were very positive and it is now a common practice for bone healing. As the name suggests, a very low-voltage microamperage (millionths of an ampere) current is passed onto the affected cells or tissue trigger points in order to stimulate the body's healing process.

Each and every cell of the body has its own electric impulses. Due to abnormal conditions or injury, the bioelectric frequency of the cell is disturbed. Microcurrent therapy is based on the principle that, application of current that is similar to the body's bioelectric current enhances the tissues response to healing and repair.
