Micro-current therapy uses electric current intensities that are prevalent in a healthy body. Other types of therapy, such as TENS (Transcutaneous electrical nerve stimulation) or electrical muscle stimulation (EMS), on the other hand, employ much stronger voltages, which suppress or even destroy the metabolic processes. Micro-current therapy is different and follows the so called Arndt-Schultz law:
“Weak stimuli stimulate vitality, median stimuli invigorates it, strong ones inhibit them, the strongest annihilate them.”
These micro-currents effectively intervene in the disturbed cell regulation and produce demonstrable, positive effects:
- Significant increase in protein synthesis for repair, by up to 70%
- Significant increase in ATP synthesis, more “energy”, by up to 500%
- Improved energy-consuming transport processes to the cell, by up to 40%
The micro-current’s biological stimulation effect starts, where the body’s own electrical current has failed.
