Description

This class will present introductory concepts for using frequency specific microcurrent (FSM) to treat pain due to common and more complex physical injuries and pathology. It is designed for practitioners who work with patients with chronic pain, trauma and difficult conditions, acute and chronic athletic injuries, weekend warriors, and people who actively exercise. Master these concepts and use microcurrent therapy in your practice and for your own aches and pains.

Shannon Goossen

Shannon Goossen, AP, LMT, CMTPT is a recognized national expert in treating myofascial pain and solving complex neuropathic pain problems using novel techniques incorporating microcurrent and bioenergetic devices.

Shannon teaches nationally, offers private clinical in-services as well as onsite customized training. She has also trained in Functional Medicine and completed IFM’s AFMCP. Her many innovations include the development of the Walking ReleaseTM Method and Mover-StabilizerTM concept. She is President of Comprehensive Myofascial Therapy Associates and the Educational Director for the National Foundation for Integrative Medicine (www.NFIM.org). She is a contributing writer for two textbooks and has had several articles published on spinal disorders, myofascial pain, clinical evaluation and is an award winning presenter on microcurrent.

In 2018, Shannon was selected to teach the use of Microcurrent (FSM) and her novel manual therapy techniques to help solve chronic pain for a USAF demonstration project. She continues to teach at multiple air force bases and for the DHA for the military. Shannon was also selected to be on the USAF Warrior Games Medical Team and the USA Invictus Games Medical Team.

I have been working with microcurrent for just over 15 months. My previous training experiences have been the MEND launch weekend, a 1 day pre conference workshop with Shannon before the 2016 NAMTPT convention and having purchased the frequencyspecific.com core seminar DVD and working my way through it. I feel very blessed that the Team at MEND asked me to audit this course and give my feedback. My first high recommendation for this course is bang for your buck. This course does not require that I treat 15 to 20 patients to cover the course materials yet rather a user friendly 2 or 3 patients treated covers the expense. My favorite aspect of this presentation is the very digestible segments that can be taken in completely in comparison to some presentations that are 2 hours long and it is hard to remember at the end of the segment what you heard at the beginning. It was very easy to go through a segment using the very nice slide handouts. After the segment was over I could easily look over my notes for that segment and use the convenient timestamp for any quick review I might like to make. The delivery of the language of frequencies for both Channel 1 and Channel 2 is artfully developed with significant reinforcement to enable the user to become more comfortable with essential frequencies to help our patients and begin the journey to reshape our thinking upstream to the deeper roots of the causes of our patients pain. I found all segments relevant. Personally I was most intrigued by the Spine information which taught me new things and made me want to know more. The other very effective segment for me was the neural evaluation segment that was presented very patiently delivered allow me to use it as a practice video. By the quality of the information, the user friendly length of segments and the convenient timeline it is my intention to purchase this course to be part of my permanent reference library as I am certain I will make frequent use of it

Fantastic learning experience!

This is my second time taking this class. The first time I listened to each part multiple times, now months later, I am doing that again. Too much information to get in one listen, I love the fact that I can listen over and over again and be able to refer back to a portion if needed. This is a fantastic way to take a class like this and I recommend it to everyone! Understanding how to use microcurrent is not something that most people can pick up in a short time, it can be straightforward, but can also be very complicated and one must think outside of the box and there can be 3 more boxes to work through once you get there. The rewards are incredible!

Intro to FSM

Being introduce to Frequency Specific Microcurrent (FSM) was awesome. To know and understand the history, makes it that much special. I will take this knowledge and opportunity to make a difference in someone’s life is by reducing there pain with no drugs . I will Combine how we currently reduce Pain with Cold (Cryo) and hot (Infra Red Treatment) treatment will take the concept to another level. Thanks for the fruit.
