Microcurrent Point Stimulation (MPS)
What is MPS?
Microcurrent Point Stimulation (MPS) is a therapy that combines the principles of acupuncture with microcurrent stimulation. Around the world, MPS is successfully helping many pain patients control their patient pain levels and resume normal functioning in their lives again!
Microcurrent Point Stimulation applies concentrated DC micro-stimulation to produce an "acupuncture" response that "releases" muscle tissue that impinges nerves & causes joint articulations (pain). This action permits increased reinnervation of affected neural pathways, allowing patient pain levels to be substantially decreased, often instantaneously. This multi-pronged approach to the body's nervous and musculoskeletal system is the reason why Microcurrent Point Stimulation works so well on pain. Designed for the layperson in mind, no prior knowledge of acupuncture required to learn this modalite.
Microcurrent Point Stimulation isolates the causes of a patient's pain by applying micro-stimulation to acupuncture points that relate to different muscles, tissues and systems (neurological, segmental, limbic, mysofascial, etc.)
The thought process is that once the physical components of pain have been eliminated, the emotional aspects of pain are much more easily accessible and the patient is much more receptive to releasing locked emotions.
Parasympathetic Points — Applying Microcurrent Point Stimulation to the select acupuncture points in the wrist/ankles can significantly calm the nervous system and reduce patient pain levels.
The Autonomic Nervous System — The key to the treatment of almost all chronic pain syndromes in patients is the deregulation (or calming) of the autonomic nervous system, and the release of physical/mental blockages which seem to keep the ANS in "high" drive.
Scar l Therapy — Applying the Microcurrent Point Stimulation to each side of visible scars with microcurrent therapy in order to "repolarize" the local tissue and release fascia and muscles which are influenced by the scar. This technique should not be underestimated in its potency. Releasing scars involved with meridians and dermatomes that influence the pain site can sometimes be the single most important factor in the treatment of chronic pain. Inspect for involved scars in women in the front torso, and for men in the limbs.
Radiculopathy (Nerve Root Entrapment) — Entrapment of the nerve root can/will have significant influence on, or cause, pain along the nerve pathways (dermatome). Nerve roots get pinched when the paraspinal muscles shorten and compress the roots. This is often due to poor lifestyle, ergonomics, traumatic injuries or congenital factors. The tissues and organs innervated by that nerve root will be adversely effected & abnormally functioning on a proportional basis. Applying Microcurrent Point Stimulationto the muscles on each side of a pinched nerve will immediately relax the paraspinal muscles and "release" the nerve root entrapment, providing significant relief to the suffering patient. Treat the neck for upper limb pain and low back for leg pain.
Structural Realignment of the Sacrum and Spine — The sacrum, which sits at the base of the spine, is the foundation of your spine. The spine influences many pain conditions, so if the sacrum is out of alignment, so will the spine.
Distal Acupuncture Points for Pain Relief - Treat the "Branches" — Traditionally, acupuncture is the number one modality for the treatment of pain and disease. It has been employed for almost 5000 years. There are many powerful pain relief points throughout the body, but most of the significant ones are easily found in the hands and feet.
Acupuncture Points for the Treatment of Limbic (Emotional) Conditions — Microcurrent Point Stimulation recognizes the influence and inter-relationship emotions have with regard to pain and homeostasis of the body. Underlying emotional distress can/will have a negative effect of a patient's ability to cope with pain, and in some cases, may be the direct root cause of that pain. It is one of the most powerful pain management techniques. Each organ in acupuncture supports a patho-physiological role and is related to a specific emotion
