The MicroCare D-21 Acupuncture Pen is a dual-purpose device for personal home use that provides an acupuncture point locator function with an acoustic signal as well as electrical current stimulation of acupuncture points. Combining the ancient knowledge of Traditional Chinese Medicine with modern sophisticated electronic circuitry, it utilizes completely painless, very low frequency stimulation without piercing the skin. Based on the principles of acupuncture (but without the needles), this device is applied either directly to areas of discomfort or to acupuncture points that correspond to soreness or discomfort. It measures electrical resistance of the skin to accurately pinpoint acupuncture points on the human body and is great for soothing stress and relaxing before going to sleep.
It's also a cinch to use! It signals you when it locates the precise acupuncture point as you pass the pen over the approximate area. Then the acupuncture tip emits a safe, low intensity electrical pulse to stimulate the acupuncture point. Duration and intensity is easily controlled via the labeled switches on the pen. The Acupuncture Pen comes with a detailed instruction booklet identifying the location of every acupuncture point in the body.
Traditional acupuncture applications include: influenza-like infections, general upper respiratory infections, headaches, muscle and joint pains, tennis elbow, migraines, menstrual pain, diarrhea, constipation, and insomnia.
