Install 1 x AA battery in the compartment
Turn on the device by holding the handle with the tip up and pressing the lower half of the black toggle button. The number 1 should appear on the display meaning there is low voltage. Repeat to increase as necessary.
Starting with the device on a medium low setting, firmly press the tip to the wrist. If you do not feel anything at first, slide the tip around the general area until you feel a pulsing sensation.
If you still do not feel anything, increase the voltage. Lots of individuals are stiff so a higher setting may be needed.
If you feel a stinging sensation it is because there is not a solid connection from the tip to your skin. To solve this, apply more pressure with the pen.
Continue sliding the tip around until you feel a strong pulse. When the pulse is strong it means you have found the muscle and are stimulating it.
You may hold the acupointer directly on the point or gently massage the point.
