Microcurrent Point Stimulation (MPS) Therapy

Microcurrent Point Stimulation (MPS) Therapy is an integrative therapy developed to regulate the autonomic nervous system and address chronic pain. MPS is classed as a TENS unit. TENS is an acronym for Transcutaneous Electrical Nerve Stimulation and is defined as a device which provides pain relief through the application of an electrical current to stimulate peripheral nerves. MPS differs from traditional TENS units in that a smaller current is delivered through a pen-sized point (MPS) as opposed to a larger current delivered via a pad (TENS). TENS is widely used for pain management. For most people, TENS is considered to be a safe treatment with no side effects.

Electrical stimulation is not recommended for the following conditions: pacemaker, pregnancy, epilepsy/seizures, cancer.

The MPS device locates and applies concentrated DC microcurrent to therapeutically active points for the purpose of relaxing muscles, calming the nervous system and increasing blood flow. Most clients require 2-10 treatments for lasting outcomes, with some chronic clients requiring ongoing daily or bi-weekly applications. Protocols and frequency vary depending on need and responsiveness to the therapy. MPS sessions are 30 -60 minutes in duration on average.

To participate in MPS therapy, your clinician will apply microcurrent to your body at a variety of anatomical sites, using two pen-sized devices. Your clinician may require you to lift your shirt to expose your back in order to access acupressure points parallel to the spine. In some cases, application of current may cause temporary muscle tension or discomfort during the application phase.

It is important to maintain communication with your clinician to ensure that they are able to appropriately adjust the therapy to your needs and symptoms.
