Microcurrent Point Stimulation (MPS) Therapy is an integrative therapy developed to regulate the autonomic nervous system and address chronic pain. MPS is classed as a TENS unit.

TENS is widely used for pain management. For most people, TENS is considered to be a safe treatment with no side effects.

MPS can help with scar tissue release.  Scar tissue can cause adhesions in the body, where tissues (fascia, muscle, organs, etc.) are ‘stuck’ together.  This can cause pain and functional limitations.  Application of MPS can help to reduce the adhesions, manage symptoms and may reduce the external appearance of scars.
