Microlight Electro- Acupuncture therapy can relieve your pain quickly
and with long-lasting results – without the use of drugs, needles or uncomfortable stimulation.
Microlight Electro-Acupuncture (MEA) therapy is the “high-tech” acupuncture system that has created positive results for thousands of people in serious pain who have not found help elsewhere. MEA uses a unique combination of gentle microcurrents and colors of therapeutic light to relieve your pain very rapidly and effectively. In many cases relief comes almost immediately.
Modern bio-medical research and traditional Chinese medicine agree that energetic blockages are at the root of pain and inflammation. MEA therapy works by balancing and unblocking the internal energy pathways of the body. Special points on the body will be selected on which to apply MEA to depending on your condition.
Frequently Asked Questions
Q: What is Microlight therapy?
A: Microlight is a unique treatment system for pain relief, injury rehab and facial rejuvenation. It combines two powerful modalities – microcurrent and color light therapy. Special wands are used to apply treatment to selected acupuncture points and regions of pain. You may also receive microcurrent therapy through pad electrodes for treatment of the low back, knees and other large joints.
Q: What is microcurrent? Does it hurt? A: Absolutely not. Microcurrents are electrical currents in the millionth of amp levels, so gentle that you may not feel them at all. Yet microcurrent therapy has been proven to produce some of the most dramatic and rapid results for relieving pain and improving range of motion. Microcurrent is NOT the same as most other electrical stimulation devices you may have been previously treated with. Based on the principle of “Less is More”, there is NO discomfort and you will enjoy much more favorable results.
Q: How does Microlight work?
A: Microcurrent works so well because it helps the body balance and restore its own electrical functions when they go awry. It is also well established that certain forms of therapeutic light can produce profound pain relieving and healing effects. When combined together microcurrent and color light therapy boost each other’s effects and speed results. Microlight also works through the principle of resonance – the ability of energy frequencies to influence and harmonize what they are applied to. Your practitioner is trained to customize your therapy for your maximum benefits.
Q: How long is a treatment? How many will I need? A: Typical treatments range from 10 minutes up to a half hour, depending on the severity of your condition. Moderate pain or recent injuries could be relieved within 1 to 5 sessions, while severe or chronic pain could require 10 or more sessions.
Q: Is Microlight therapy covered by my insurance? A: I am happy to accept insurance and will check with your plan to see if this therapy will be covered for you. Microlight therapy can be billed under established CPT codes for therapeutic electrical stimulation.

Energy Medicine – The Wave of the Future by Darren Starwynn, O.M.D.
Anyone who has watched the news knows that there are major issues with the availability and costs of health care. While allopathic (Western) medicine is a great blessing for people who have had significant trauma and life-threatening diseases, it is not nearly as effective for long-term relief of pain and maintenance of health. Long-term use of pharmaceutical drugs is often associated with side effects ranging from uncomfortable to fatal.
More and more people are seeking healthcare alternatives for pain and injury that are safe, effective and affordable. One of the most valuable is the rapidly growing field of energy medicine. Our bodies are marvelous and complex electrical entities. All of our major life functions – heartbeat, brain waves, nerve function, digestion, wound healing and hormone production – are powered by innate electrical currents.
The term energy medicine refers to methods that directly apply energy to the body for diagnostic or therapeutic purposes. Best known are microcurrent (gentle, low frequency electrical stimulation), color light and sound therapies.
Microlight therapy, which combines microcurrent and therapeutic light, has provided pain relief and accelerated healing for countless people for whom other pain relief methods had failed. It is also used for treatment of the elderly and is a highly effective and well-accepted treatment for children because it is so gentle and safe.
