Does Microcurrent work in Scar Reduction?

“It is melanoma and your surgery is scheduled to be done in three days” Those are words that nobody wants to hear but my friend “Bea” heard them.  The surgery took several hours because the melanoma was all the way to the bone, very deep and painful.
To her sadness Bea came out of the surgery with a terrible scar on her left cheek stretching about  2 inches almost from the nose to the jaw line. I was horrified to see what a terrible job the surgeon had done.  A long row of big welts covering her cheek.  
To my excitement and delight, Bea decided to work on her scar with me, getting 7e Myolift therapy. I worked on it for 30 minutes on the first session. After the session she could feel a softness to the scar that she didn’t feel before and needless to say, Bea was excited. Right on the spot , she bought 10 sessions and we set up a series of appointments.
It has now been 7 sessions and little by little her scar gets less visible and on certain spots the welt is totally gone. I am confident that  one day Bea will be able to have the mirror show her a face totally free from any scarring.

The micro current treatment works wonderfully on stretch marks as well, which is very common after having a baby.  Bee moisturizer , topical vitamin C, limonene essential oil, vitamin E mixed tocopherol oil and zinc will help speed up the healing of any scarring tremendously. 
 

How to build Lean Muscle Mass (LMM)

Is it possible to increase strength beyond natural limits!  

May be or May be not. However with proper exercise and TORC treatments you can build more lean muscle mass.  Bio-electrical stimulation has been used in former Communist Bloc countries for sports training since the early 1950s, but Western countries only became aware of its use in 1973, when Dr. Y. Kots of the Central Institute of Physical Culture in the former USSR presented a paper on this technology at Concordia University in Montreal. There he outlined the tremendous potential for strength enhancement beyond which was possible by traditional (voluntary) training methods.

Kots was able to show, using a tensiometric device, that the muscle tension produced in a maximal BES contraction can be up to 30% higher than a maximal voluntary contraction. This finding was corroborated by independent studies and makes intuitive sense, given the nature of the body's energy conservation system.

Since individual muscle fibers can be completely exhausted in just a few seconds, the body has adopted several strategies to prolong endurance. Slow twitch (red) fiber is used first in voluntary contractions, as it is energy efficient, though not very powerful. Then only enough strong, but voracious, fast twitch (white) fiber is added to handle the load.

In addition, muscles work their individual fibers in relays, always holding some back from even the most demanding load to maintain a reserve. Therefore, it's impossible to voluntarily contract all fibers simultaneously. The order of recruitment makes it likely that most of the fibers held in reserve will be white.

Bio-electrical stimulation works directly on the muscles, bypassing the body's energy conservation system, thus there's no limit to the percentage of fiber that can be activated (1,2). The Bio-electrical stimulus "spills over" from fully contracted fiber to activate remaining fiber (given sufficient current) allowing the client to experience a training stimulus that's unattainable by any other means (5).

The supra-maximal nature of this exercise enhances the strength to weight ratio by favoring enhanced recruitment over cross-sectional growth and also optimizes fiber splitting and the conversion of intermediate fiber to white fiber, the "Holy Grail" of power training. So the thing to think about with BES is density, not size. Think of it as maximal strength training and not hypertrophy training.

Also keep in mind that BES is for large muscle groups only. Although an expert might be able to pull it off, the average user will not be able to use it on small muscle groups like the biceps, triceps and calves.

Adriana says I'm happy and pain free with Torc

Adriana

In 1999 while in the Marines I injured my hip/leg pretty bad. By not exercising or really able to, and eating bad I gained weight. In addition they had me on several medications. After approximately 9 to 10 years of being over 200 pounds I decided it was time to get the weight off. I could barely walk I was miserable.

Approximately four years ago I started using 7e. I was on the verge of losing weight myself as I weighed about 240 pounds. On my own I had lost approximately 100 pounds in a year’s time, but was still having problems with my left hip/leg muscle. It was week, and still didn’t act like it wanted to support me. I was still not sleeping well, and still having lower back pain.

I actually started coming to 7e because of an ad I had seen for inch loss and toning. I had tried so many other things out there with failure that I did not have my hopes up. By coming to 7e within a couple treatments I was able to start walking so much better. After a few more I was able to walk without using my cane. I felt like I had more energy and I was seeing my skin tighten up from my weight loss. This was a big deal for me. I can walk better now than I had in the past ten years. I wasn’t expecting it to work like a therapy.

I've been coming to 7e on and off for the last 4 years. For that 30-40 minute session I am pain free and relaxed. If I am flared up with my sciatica issue the Torc seems to help it. I will always have hip and lower back problems. However, by coming to 7e it makes my life easier and more enjoyable. I feel that the Torc helps with the muscle and tissues I damaged, and it helps by reliving some of my nerve pain.
