learn about the Acuscope and Myopulse microcurrent therapy

The goal of this Science and Learning Center is to provide information about the science and research behind microcurrent therapy. Check back with us, as this page is updated regularly. Click on the links below to read more:

Microcurrent Therapy

Both human and animal bodies function through low-voltage conductivity. Currents flow through connective tissues, including muscles, tendons, ligaments, bone, and neurological pathways to the brain. Read More



Although microcurrent research is not new, microcurrent therapy is a relatively new field. Thorp Institute of Integrated Medicine has created a proprietary certification program that, once completed, permits graduates to use the designation Electro-toxicologist® Technician.

Only a trained, certified Electro-toxicologist® technician can provide you with state-of-the-art care to detoxify the body via the use of microcurrent applied directly to the energy pathways of the body. Thorp Institute is the exclusive provider of training in the Electro-toxicology® discipline, including the care and use of the Acuscope and Myopulse systems. Contact one of our certified Electro-toxicologist® technicians to learn more about this groundbreaking new medical treatment.


Ion Channels

Ion channels control fundamental life processes. Defects in their function play a major role in many diseases. Their importance as targets for production of new drugs is continuously increasing. The patch clamp method of Sakmann and Neher, a technology which enables the examination of individual ion channels, was honored with a Nobel Prize and has resulted in the foundation of molecular electrophysiology as a recognized science.

Nobel Prize

Two German scientists were awarded the Nobel Prize in Physiology or Medicine in Stockholm yesterday for discoveries in basic cell function that have shed light on the cause of several diseases, like diabetes and cystic fibrosis, and that are paving the way to tailor-made drugs. Read More
