FSM is a system of treatment
using micro-amperage current
and the resonance effect of
frequencies on tissue and
conditions to reduce symptoms
and improve health.
Thousands of medical and osteopathic physicians used frequencies and electromagnetic therapies to treat patients between 1900 and 1934. They did research and published their findings in journals, books and professional meetings. In 1934, the American Medical Association (AMA) declared that electromagnetic therapies, homeopathic remedies, nutrition and herbs were unscientific and that drugs and surgery were the future of medicine. Physicians were told that they could lose their license to practice medicine unless they stopped using frequencies and electromagnetic devices. The treatments fell out of use, machines went into back rooms and attics and by 1951 the old machines were made illegal by the FDA. All of the history was lost when that generation of physicians died. We have no way to know how the frequencies were developed.
In 1995, Carolyn McMakin, DC received a list of frequencies from an osteopath who bought a practice in 1946 that came with a 1922 device in the back room. That device came with a list of frequencies. The frequencies from the list were used with a two-channel microcurrent device as if the descriptions on the list were correct. The results were immediate and fascinating. The frequencies appeared to do exactly and only what they were described as doing. The frequency to reduce inflammation did that and only that. The frequency to remove scarring dissolved painful scar tissue and increased range of motion but had no effect on inflammation. The frequency to stop bleeding prevented bruising but did nothing for inflammation or range of motion. After treating patients for over a year Dr. McMakin began teaching the technique in January 1997 to see if the effects were reproducible. By June 1997 students were achieving the same results that had been observed in Dr. McMakin’s clinic. Classes continue to be taught in the US and around the world and there are now over 1800 FSM practitioners worldwide. Frequency Specific Microcurrent in Pain Management (Elsevier 2010) and The Resonance Effect (North Atlantic Books 2017) make the frequency protocols available to the public. www.theresonanceeffect.com
Microcurrent is current in millionths of an ampere. Micro-amperage current is the same kind of current your body produces on its own so you can’t feel the current. Microcurrent has been shown to increase ATP energy production in cells by 500% and numerous papers document its ability to improve healing in wounds and fractures.

The FSM frequencies are electrical pulses measured in hertz or pulses per second. All of the FSM frequencies are below 1000 Hz. Where did the frequencies come from? The FSM frequencies came from a list that came with a machine made in 1922. When the generation of physicians who developed the frequencies died, all of their history died with them. There is no way to know how this list of frequencies was developed.
The frequencies appear to change pain, function and even structure in a large number of clinical conditions. FSM is especially good at reducing inflammation, treating fibromyalgia, nerve, joint and muscle pain and dissolving or softening scar tissue. The frequencies to reduce inflammation have helped thousands of patients with inflammatory conditions such as asthma, irritable bowel, cardiovascular disease and diabetic neuropathies. Patients who are treated within four hours of new injuries such as auto accident and surgeries have reduced pain and a greatly accelerated healing process due to the effects of both the current and the frequencies. There are no guarantees that every protocol is going to be effective in every patient. In general, the frequencies either work or don’t work and if they don’t work they simply have no effect. As long as appropriate proven therapies are not delayed or withheld, FSM “can’t hurt, might help”. Practitioners are trained in the concept that FSM is to be used as an adjunct to therapeutics appropriate to their discipline for the patient after proper diagnosis.
The research data suggests that the frequencies change cell signaling by changing cell membrane receptors that then change cell genetic expression and thereby change cell function and even cell structure. This is theory that has to be proven by experiments.
Drugs change cell receptors like a key in a lock. Frequencies change the receptors like your key fob, with a signal at a distance.
There are no risks to the patient that we know about as long as the practitioner follows the proper contraindications and precautions associated with both FSM and the use of the machine. There are frequencies used to remove scar tissue that should not be used within 6 weeks of a new injury. The device should not be used across the chest of patients with pacemakers. FSM should not be used on patients known to be pregnant even though there have been no adverse reactions in pregnancy. The frequency to reduce inflammation will reduce inflammation even when infection is present and the infection can become worse while the inflammation is turned off.
Patients who are dehydrated cannot benefit from FSM. Every patient is advised to drink at least one quart of water in the four hours preceding treatment. Patients who are chronically dehydrated may need more water for treatment to be effective. The effectiveness of FSM depends almost entirely on an accurate diagnosis. Shoulder pain can come from muscles, tendons, bursas, nerves or the joint. FSM will treat all of these pain generators effectively but the practitioner must treat the right tissue for the correct condition to affectively eliminate the pain. This analogy applies to every condition.
The FDA has not evaluated the use of resonance therapy or frequencies. The statements made in the seminars apply only to observed clinical affects of FSM and are not intended as claims for the frequencies or any device.
Rife frequencies were light frequencies all above 8,000 hertz. FSM frequencies are electrical pulses all below 1000 hertz. Rife frequencies were used to treat cancer. FSM is not used to treat cancer. FSM has been used to treat the pain of bone metastasis and the nausea from chemotherapy
Microcurrent provides electrons and in published studies increases ATP production in cells. Lasers provide photons or light particles. Lasers oscillate at set frequencies and do provide beneficial results. They benefit patients by some other method than frequency specific resonance.
Microcurrent is approved in the category of TENS devices by the FDA. TENS devices deliver a thousand times more current, in the milliamp range, create muscle contraction and block pain messages traveling up the spine to the brain. TENS devices simply block pain they do not increase cellular energy production or reduce inflammation or speed tissue healing.
Ultrasound creates heat by vibrating the water molecules in tissue. It does not provide current nor does it change ATP status. Ultrasound provides beneficial results, but it is completely different than microcurrent and frequency resonance.
Any time current flows there is voltage. Any time there is voltage there is current flowing. So microcurrent and voltage happen together
