Microcurrent Point Stimulation
How does it Work?
Microcurrent Point Stimulation (MPS) is a treatment method that uses a handheld machine called a Dolphin Neurostim to provide microcurrent stimulation to various acupuncture points/meridians to help relax muscles, promote blood flow to the local area and to calm the nervous system. MPS treatment helps to move energy and thereby promote relaxation and decrease stress in the body. Depending on the treatment, you can either lay on a treatment table or sit in a chair.
When people experience chronic stress or experience various injuries or traumatic events, their nervous systems are more stressed and that contributes significantly to their pain conditions. Stress of any form can take a toll on the body and can affect our body’s ability to repair itself from injuries, rest and rejuvenate itself and maintain a relaxed state.
What happens in an MPS Treatment Session?
More information will be reviewed with you about MPS and what effects it might have on your body. Goals for the treatment session will be determined, and treatment to specific areas will be provided. Many clients report feeling decreases in pain after the session lasting anywhere from a few hours to a few days/up to a week or so. Functional gains are often reported as the clients report because they are experiencing less pain, they are more able to participate in activities. It is common for clients to also report increased relaxation and decreased anxiety as a result of treatment. The MPS treatment enables Heidi to treat both pain and nervous system regulation at the same time!
