If you feel you've run out of pain control avenues, microcurrent energy may be what you've been missing.
When was the last time that you were pain free? When you didn’t have a headache, low back pain or even a joint or muscle ache? According to Statistics Canada, roughly 27 % of seniors living at home and up to 38 % of those living in health-care institutions have chronic disabling pain, with rates higher for women than for men.
I officially became a senior last year and I’m blessed to be 100% pain free and healthy. Not that I have always been that way. I’ve had my share of sports injuries and pain issues but found good manual therapists that kept me mobile and active. Like many of us, I don’t always exercise or eat the most nutritional foods, but I am very active in skiing, golf and paddle boarding which helps keep me in good physical shape. When sports injuries happen, I recover quickly.
Being involved in the pain management business for almost 30 years, I have been fortunate to have worked with many pain/health management specialists across North America who understood how to find the “cause” for pain and health issues, as opposed to treating the symptoms. From gentle manual therapies like Matrix Repatterning®, osteopathy and craniosacral therapy to deeper techniques like chiropractic, ART®, structural integration (Rolfing) massage, reflexology, acupuncture and even homeopathy, they all have their place in the pain management arena.
When friends ask me how they can control their pain when all other avenues have been exhausted, my answer is “energy medicine”. I have trained countless therapists on how to put microcurrent energy into the body to help support there manual skills and accelerate the healing process. The results I’ve witnessed have been nothing short of amazing. Putting electrons/voltage into my body’s wiring infrastructure has allowed me to heal quickly and maintain a pain-free lifestyle.
I was introduced to Dr. Jerry Tennant MD in 2011 and have had the privilege of working with him on this subject. He has helped me better understand how the body works energetically, and why putting electrons into our bodies can be so beneficial. He simply shows people how our muscles and organs are wired together in parallel circuits, and teaches us to become good electricians of the body, to improve health and control pain.
Dr Tennant wrote a book – Healing is Voltage™ – The Handbook (Amazon) and in it he states “We are constantly wearing out our cells and have to replace them. We get new cones in our retina and replace the lining of our gut every 2-3 days. We replace our skin every 6 weeks and our liver every eight weeks. Chronic disease occurs when we lose our ability to make new cells that work”. His book discusses how that happens and what to do to correct it.
So why is voltage so important in making new cells that work? Simply put, energy is stored in the mitochondria of the cells. In a direct current circuit minus is an electron donor and positive is an electron stealer. Electrons move from (–) to (+). Generally healthy tissues rest at -35 millivolts of electron donor status. We need voltage and raw materials to make new cells. When we injure ourselves that voltage goes up to -50 millivolts to replace damaged cells. If there is an infection in any other part of the body the healing voltages are directed to that electron stealer leaving the injury deficient in voltage resulting in a chronic condition of less than -15 millivolts. A dental infection or surgical scar, for example, is an electron stealer and can cut off the electrons flowing through that organ’s acupuncture wiring system.
There are many natural ways to put electrons into the body including touching the earth, moving water with your bare feet, drinking alkaline ground water, eating uncooked unprocessed foods, sunshine, touching a person or pet, and exercise. All these create electrons that are stored in the cells of the muscle battery packs. Unfortunately, we don’t always have these electron donors available to us, but we can turn to microcurrent devices to support our lifetime requirement for electrons like Dr. Tennant uses in his Integrative Health clinic.
When discussing pain management and many health issues, Dr. Tennant talks about the “fight or flight” syndrome. Symptoms may include poor sleep, moodiness, poor digestion and tension, muscles are tight. Your head is tipped one way, the shoulders and the hips the other. Dr. Tennant’s treatment protocol for these conditions is to stimulate a point on both sides of the neck putting voltage into the trapezius muscle, the battery pack for the sphenoid bone located in our skull. This therapy helps to reset the sphenoid bone turning on the parasympathetic nervous system thus improving sleep, digestion, rebalances the flexor/extensor muscles and our body’s alignment under the skull. Many clients with chronic pain can realize significant changes after this two-minute therapy, and I do this simple technique several times a week to keep me in balance and sleeping well.
There’s a lot to be shared about this subject on energy medicine and how it can be used to maintain good health. To learn more, I recommend “Healing is Voltage™ as a good starting point. I will be sharing excerpts from Dr. Tennant’s book on the benefits of energetic medicine.

To your good health!
