EHF-Puncture

This book contains a brief review of the history of EHF-Therapy; some aspects of the physical and biological effects of low intensity millimeter band electromagnetic radiation, hypotheses explaining the effects of EHF exposure and a comparison of various methods of EHF-Therapy.

The main part of the book contains a description of EHF-Puncture and provides the rational for the necessity to individualize zones/points of exposure. Various theories of traditional Chinese acupuncture are presented which permit an effective selection of acupoints to be accomplished during the treatment of different diseases.

This book is intended for acupuncturists, physiotherapists and doctors using EHF-Therapy and laser-puncture.
