Questions relating to MPS
Micro Point Stimulator
Q.How does the Micro point stimulator (MPS) work?
The battery-operated MPS works by sending an electrical impulse to locate, then stimulate areas of low resistance. When properly stimulated, these areas relax muscles, improve circulation, and trigger the release of beta-endorphins – the body’s own painkillers. By activating the body’s natural healing and pain-relieving response, our units have become a preferred alternative to pharmaceuticals.
Q.Does the MPS have to be applied by a trained specialist?
Perhaps one of the greatest advantages of our palm-sized unit is that it’s non- invasive, or needle-free, which makes it very easy to apply. It relies instead on electronic impulses to reproduce the physiological results of traditional acupuncture. This means that the MPS can be successfully applied by both novices and professionals – whenever and wherever pain strikes. Every unit comes with a concise and easy-to-digest treatment manual.
Q.How do you find an area of low resistance?
The accompanying manual will become your treatment bible. It will guide you to the appropriate areas of low resistance for many common muscular pain conditions. As for the actual application, it couldn’t be easier. Place the unit’s Point Finder (PF) on the skin – either directly or through a loosely knit fabric. When the PF is near one an area of low resistance, the built-in detector will emit a high-pitched tone. Once the PF has found an area of low resistance, the green indicator light located on the back of the unit will turn off, and the tone will increase in pitch. Fast-acting relief begins by pushing and holding down the treatment button.
Q.Is the MPS difficult to use?
We think you’ll find that both our self-help unit and our systematic approach to pain management are extremely user-friendly. To shorten your learning curve, we include an easy-to-follow treatment manual with every MPS Additionally, we provide the best toll-free support line in the industry.
Q.Is the MPS safe?
The MPS is battery-operated and very safe – so safe you can use it on children to help them sleep, or the elderly to relieve their chronic pain. Please Note: Patients who are pregnant, epileptic or fitted with cardiac pace makers, should NOT use the MPS.
Q.How effective is the MPS for temporary pain relief?
The majority of our patients, therapists and doctors have reported 50-75% relief within one or two treatments. Properly applied, almost every patient will respond favorably within 2-3 applications!

Q.What can be treated with the MPS?
It can be used to treat sore and aching muscles in the back, arms, and legs due to strain from exercise or normal household and work activities.
Q.How will I feel after treatment?
Like exercise or massage, treatment with the MPS releases the bio-chemicals responsible for that warm, euphoric feeling known as “runner’s high.” Some patients also experience mild stiffness, which is a positive signal that the muscles are realigning, and the body is being brought back into balance.
Q.Can you overdo it?
Yes, with certain conditions, you can overdo it. For instance, there are certain therapies which will advise against treating over areas of low resistance on the first application. To ensure the highest rate of safety and success, always consult the accompanying treatment protocol manual, or call our toll-free support line. The amount or length of a treatment depends on the severity of the condition.
