Boosts & Acupoints
for Pain, Discomfort, and Recovery
Enhancing Effectiveness with Acupoints
This section offers suggestions for enhancing the effectiveness of the user-activated, manual boost programs by utilizing acupoints. In the diagrams, acupoint locations are shown as red circles with a name beside them. For example ‘ST-36’: The first two letters are an abbreviation for the meridian (ST = Stomach) and the number identifies the specific point on the meridian. All notes against acupoints are Traditional Chinese Medicine associations and not necessarily medically proven. No claims are made, only suggestions for using the device for personal and trial purposes. If you have a medical complaint, always seek the advice of a professional medical provider.
Place the device with the yellow, central activation light over and facing the general location of the acupoint. Due to the broad-spectrum output of the device, approximately 12 inches, it only needs to be placed in the general location of an acupoint for effective action. From a practical and therapeutic perspective most people find that one or two points work best for them and they stick with those. Other people find they don’t need to use acupoints and benefit from just having the device generally on their body.
