Is the MPS treatment safe during pregnancy?

mara  asked on  Oct 25, 2012


Yes. Simply stated, the MPS units use a direct current (DC) that is the same as our body runs on. Because it is a microcurrent (very low voltage) it cannot do harm to our tissues (or to the fetus). MPS has been used very successfully on many pregnant women ... from the beginning of the pregnancy, all the way to the delivery (because they can help reduce the pain and speed the delivery). As a side note, the MPS units are great for helping babies as well (because they are gentle). If you are a high risk pregnancy, then it is advisable to have your MD approve this modality - and I am happy to speak with any physician and explain how the MPS units work.

Is the microcurrent treatment and massage done simultaneously or is there a set time for the microcurrent session and massage seperate?

Jennifer G.  asked on  Oct 24, 2012


There is no set time for either the MPS or massage, just the 60 or 90 min treatment time. We will talk about what your needs are and where your pain/discomfort is. Then the session is tailored to what will give you the best outcome from treatment. Sometimes there is more MPS than massage because of the deep release and balance that happens with this modality. Sometimes there is more massage and structural integration work with the MPS to help relase specific areas of tension. It is always my goal to make sure that we address your needs in the best way possible.
