Electroacupuncture according to Voll

Electroacupuncture according to Voll (EAV) is a technique created in the late 1940’s by a German medical doctor and engineer, Dr. Reinhard Voll, who developed a device that can measure the energy flow within the meridians using electricity, as an “indirect” measure of the body energy system

For centuries, Chinese doctors have been practicing the art of “Acupuncture”. Acupuncture is based on a system of “Meridians”. The Meridians are explained as a network of "Energy" channels that are used for communication and for moving energy throughout the body. An acupuncturist uses needles that are placed at specific “Points” to stimulate the flow of energy to specific organs and glands

In EAV, the measuring is typically take place at certain points within the hands and feet. Measure should be only before 10 a.m. According to the machine measurements, the following are true:

A measure of 50 = Ideal measurement

A measure of 45-60 = normal measurement

A measure of > 65 = tissue irritation

A measure of > 70 = tissue inflammation

A measure of < 45 = tissue degeneration
