Core Frequency Specific Microcurrent Training

The Core Seminar covers basic microcurrent information and the use of specific frequencies and protocols thought to address specific tissues and conditions based on the principles of bio-resonance.

The first part of the course focuses on the frequencies and protocols used to treat chronic myofascial pain, new injuries, and injuries less than six weeks old, discogenic pain, post-concussive syndrome, and neuropathic pain.

The final portion of the course focuses on the frequencies needed to treat visceral conditions and functional medicine applications.

Course topics, goals and objectives:
The course covers basic microcurrent information and the use of specific frequencies and protocols thought to address specific tissues and conditions based on the principles of biologic resonance. The first part of the course focuses on the frequencies and protocols used to treat chronic myofascial pain, new injuries and injuries less than six weeks old, discogenic pain, post concussive syndrome and neuropathic pain. The third day of the course focuses on the frequencies needed to treat visceral conditions, and functional medicine applications.

At the end of the class:
1. Students will independently operate a two-channel 3 digit specific microcurrent device. They are observed to be able to turn the unit on, modify the frequencies, amperage, wave slope and polarity functions.2. Students will independently position and place the contacts on the patient and choose appropriate protocols for cervical, thoracic, and lumbar radiculopathies and diabetic neuropathies.
3. Students will demonstrate at least two protocol selections for low back pain caused by facet joint inflammation.
4. Students will explain at least three key contraindications, precautions to treatment, or known side effects of using frequency specific microcurrent.
5. Given one sample patient, students will distinguish between pain caused by spinal facet joints, discs, and lax ligaments.
6. Students will independently choose at least two appropriate protocols for each of the following conditions: cervical, thoracic, and lumbar radiculopathies and diabetic neuropathies.

The goal of Frequency Specific Seminars is to educate all of our students so that they will be able to accomplish these objectives independently within the scope of their own practice.
