Microcurrent Point Stimulation (formerly ETPS)

Microcurrent Point Stimulation (originally called ETPS or Electro Therapeutic Point Stimulation) treatment uses a device that combines the principles of acupuncturemassage, electrotherapy and physical therapy.  ETPS Therapy is based on the belief that pain usually has several different sources and, therefore, requires a multi-system approach to produce long-term effects on patients. It uses a seven-step approach to treat almost any pain condition, with the requirement that the points be treated in order.  The therapy uses a device or electrode wand similar in appearance to a digital thermometer that produces a stimulation that relaxes muscles and calms the nervous system. In addition, it relaxes contracted muscles to relieve pressed nerves, and also releases endorphins, the body’s natural pain killers.

Microcurrent Point Stimulation was created by Bruce Hocking in 1992 and as of 2012 was renamed from ETPS to MPS Therapy.  Microcurrent devices have been approved by the FDA for the treatment of "the symptomatic relief of chronic (long-term) intractable pain and as an adjunctive treatment in the management of post-surgical traumatic pain problems."

Microcurrent Point Stimulation is similar to T.E.N.S. devices with the difference that it uses direct current stimulation, as opposed to the alternating current stimulation applied by a T.E.N.S. device.  MPS also uses current in a much lower range than a T.E.N.S device.
