What is Microcurrent Therapy?
Quite simply microcurrent therapy is electricity applied to the scalp and body. However these electric currents are incredibly small! So small they are very difficult to feel. In fact, they are the same small frequencies that naturally exist in the brain and nervous system.
These tiny frequencies are created by a microcurrent device. These currents then travel through thin wires that are connected to small electrode plates or probes.
Once the microcurrent device begins delivering the electric frequencies, most clients do not feel anything resembling electricity! What they usually notice is the relaxing and calming effects these frequencies have on the mind and body.
Why use electricity as a therapy option?
Microcurrent is an innovative therapy option for Autism Spectrum Disorders, ADHD, anxiety issues, developmental delays, sensory processing disorder, speech delays, obsessive compulsive disorder and many other neurodevelopmental conditions. Why? Because the brain is electric! These tiny frequencies can help repair, rebuild, and reinforce neural connections and train the brain to use all frequencies with ease. Perhaps most importantly, this therapy helps the brain practice moving in and out of different frequencies – as opposed to staying “stuck” in one frequency the majority of the time.
Being “stuck” can often look like ANXIETY, STIMMING, PERSEVERATING, DIFFICULTY TRANSITIONING, OCD, and so on. Is that your child? Yes? Then read on…
The second reason to choose microcurrent therapy is because it is SAFE. This non-invasive, drug-free therapy comes without the potential for harmful or long-term side effects. If you are looking for Autism treatment or ADHD treatment like cranial sacral, PEMF (pulsed electromagnetic field), transcranial magnetic stimulation, FSM (frequency specific microcurrent), hyperbaric oxygenation, Magnetic Resonance therapy, chelation, or other Autism Spectrum therapies -give us a call to learn about how Microcurrent 4 Kids could be the BETTER choice for you and your family!
Our Uniquely Designed Therapy Program
Microcurrent 4 Kids developed an entire therapy program around the specific needs of children with Autism, ADHD, and other cognitive issues, with a focus on alpha frequencies, as well as organizing all wave patterns and increasing connectivity between different parts of the brain.
This image shows a client enjoying a microcurrent therapy session! You can see the flexible bandage that was used to create a headband to hold the small electrode plates snugly against his scalp.
The current is running and he is happily playing with an ipad. This is a very typical example of how the majority of your child’s HEADBAND therapy sessions will look.
