HOCATT: Frequency Specific Microcurrents
As with most equipment, FSMs must NOT be used during pregnancy, especially NOT during the first trimester, as this is a critical period during the baby’s development. After the first trimester, if the mother chooses to go ahead with a session, it is at her own risk.
Suffers from epilepsy and/or seizures
If a client has epilepsy, whether they are on medication for it or not, or if they have had seizures in the past, they must NOT use FSMs. Epileptic seizures are caused by disturbances in the electrical activity of the brain, and this may be aggravated by FSMs. If you want to treat epilepsy using other FMS or Rife technology, you’d need the specific frequencies to do it, and supervision from a doctor. The FSM equipment in the HOCATT does NOT include an epilepsy program. Clients with epilepsy must NOT use the FSM in the HOCATT.
Has electrical implants, e.g. pacemaker, cochlear implant, intrathecal pump, insulin pump, etc.
FSMs are contraindicated for implants that use electrical frequencies. This is because FSMs generate frequencies, and these frequencies may in interfere with the implant’s own electrical impulses.
Known heart conditions, e.g. heart failure, heart blockage, recent heart attack, arrhythmias, etc.
The heart has its own internal pacemaker, called the sinoatrial node, that initiates the heartbeat. As the heart beats, it creates its own electromagnetic field, thus externally applied electrical currents may disrupt one’s own inherent rhythm. If a client with a known heart condition would like to go ahead with FSM anyway, it is at their own risk.
Blood clots/DVT’s or strokes
Some frequencies can dissolve blood clots. If a clot breaks off into small pieces, those little clots can travel through the blood stream and lodge in the brain, causing a stroke. If the client has a history of blood clots or strokes, then they must NOT use FSMs. If a client would like to go ahead with FSM anyway, it is at their own risk.
Implanted metals, e.g. pins, plates, screws, joint replacements, mechanical heart valves, metal stents, or staples in blood vessels, etc.
The frequencies produced by the FSM may cause metal implants to vibrate and heat up, which could cause internal burning. The client will not know that there is any internal burning going on, as they might only feel warmth or tingling in the area, or may not feel anything at all. If the client has any implanted metals in or near their hands, then they must NOT use the hand-held FSM rods, but they may opt to use the foot-plates instead. And vice versa, if the client has metal implants in or near their feet, then they must NOT use the foot-plates, but they could still opt to use the hand-held rods.
Fresh or bleeding wounds ; haematomas ; muscle, bone, tendon or joint injuries ; broken, swollen, infected or inflamed skin
Electrical stimulation should not be used directly over these areas or over wounds or injuries of any kind, as it may aggravate these conditions.
The back or abdomen of a pregnant woman
This is only achievable with electrode patches, which are NOT provided with the HOCATT. This information is FYI only. As always, when it comes to pregnancy, it is good to be cautious. The electrical current could adversely affect the baby. If a pregnant woman in her 2nd or 3rd trimester, chooses to go ahead with the FSM session, it is at her own risk. She should then ONLY use the foot-plates (if she uses the hand-held rods she may accidentally rest her hands on her stomach).
Sensitive areas (such as the testicles)
This is only achievable with electrode patches, which are NOT provided with the HOCATT. This information is FYI only. Placing the patches over sensitive areas, such as the testicles, could cause discomfort.
Cancerous/ malignant tissue Always be cautious when it comes to cancer. Do NOT use the electrodes or footplates over or on tumours or cancerous tissue, as the current produced may promote the spread of cancer cells to other parts of the body. So long as there is NO cancerous tissue on or near the hands or feet, then it is fine to use the FSM on the hands (with the hand-held rods) or on the feet (with the foot-plates), or both at the same time
USE WITH CAUTION IN THE CASE OF:
Active bleeding, e.g. an injury where the client may still be bleeding
FSM frequencies may increase circulation, so even if the wound is not near the hands or feet, the client should NOT use the FSM, as it may temporarily increase the blood flow from the wound.
Recent surgery (past 72 hours)
Clients who have recently had surgery (past 72 hours) should NOT receive FSM.
