When you undergo micro-current therapy, you lay down comfortably while providers place their hands on at specific locations to direct the currents to the targeted tissues. Soft cream is applied to facilitate conduction.
Unlike the more familiar TENS units, which also use electrical currents to relieve pain, micro-currents are so mild that they don’t stimulate the sensory nerves, so you feel no shock-like sensations.
A treatment course typically involves several sessions, and benefits accrue over time. Micro-current therapy is safe, and has no significant adverse effects. However, it is not recommended for patients who have pacemakers or are pregnant.
