The Annual Microcurrent Conference (formerly the Microcurrent Case Conference) started in 2007 to bring together the diverse groups of microcurrent practitioners from the US and abroad. Our purpose and passion is to unite the community, bring together leaders in the field of microcurrent applications and technologies, and to help expand our knowledge base. We strive to bring value and benefit to all practitioners, patients and the community as a whole.
The 16th Annual Microcurrent Conference and Training
October 26-27, 2022

In-person and Virtual Conference
Crowne Plaza Phoenix Chandler Golf Resort
This Year’s Topic: The Many Faces of Microcurrent 2022
Striving to Create the Most Prepared Microcurrent Community!
The Annual Microcurrent Conference began in 2007 by Dr Ed Kondrot. He created a conference to highlight the wonderful, early Client Cases of practitioners using Frequency Specific Microcurrent (FSM). His philosophy was open minded to ‘all things bio-energetic’; highlighting other resonance based technologies such as light and magnet, as well as many others! In 2017 Dr Kondrot passed the torch to national instructor and leader in the field, Vanessa LK Howe, MSPT. Today, Vanessa has evolved the conference to include more National Level Expert Lecturers, while still maintaining the Case Presentations and the commitment to including additional awareness of other Resonance based Bio-Energetic Medicine modalities. Additionally, the early days allowed for non-practitioners to also have access to our conference with the hope that we could reach and educate an interested public with the amazing results and advancements in the Microcurrent and Resonance world! Today, we still maintain this policy and embrace the passionate non-practitioners that join us each year!
Join us this year for a virtual or in person experience! Vanessa is again joined by the brilliant and entertaining Dr John Shieh, MD as co-chair! Dive into the Many Faces of Microcurrent (as well as other amazing technologies). This conference topic returns to highlight the varied and amazing healing that microcurrent offers. Our topics on deck range from skin care, to stem cell integrated treatments, to sports interventions, acupuncture and much more! Join our amazing teaching team to find out what micro can do to help you and your practice. You will see some fresh new faces, as well as some of our previous national leaders in the area of microcurrent and bioenergetic healing!

NEW this year, she will offer a 1 day Pre Con on the use of her pre-programmed Micro-Sport® Home devices for complex cases!
