QE5 and QE4
are the 2 Ultimate Models.
They are 4-in-1 zappers
And the world's only
Quantum Electro Magnetic Zappers
featuring an advanced
Neodymium Magnet Array
and Amethyst Crystal Matrix

QE5 also features
HFT Technology. This is
a proprietary
High Frequency Transducer
and is the only zapper in the world with this
cutting edge feature
that supercharges QE5.

QE5 and QE4 are the most advanced models of The Ultimate Zapper. They feature the most powerful magnets in the world -- Rare Earth N50 Neodymium Magnets. Both models feature an proprietary array of 32 magnets within a matrix of dozens of high grade amethyst crystals. QE5 adds a proprietary High Frequency Transducer to QE4 -- the only zapper in the world that features this amazing technology that greatly magnifies the already powerful effects of QE4.



QE5 and QE4 far exceed the parasite-killing capabilities of all competitors, as shown in Comparison Charts. This means deeper penetration & faster results for all conditions. Zapping starts at 10 seconds.


QE5 and QE4 far exceed the Tooth Zapper capabilities of other tooth zappers. This means deeper penetration & faster results for tooth infections.


QE5 and QE4 are powerful Electroporation Zappers with cell infusion technology creating deep penetration & fast results. Example: the research of Dr. Linus Pauling (Nobel Prize) & Dr. Irwin Stone proves vitamin C kills cancer. The Electroporation Effect floods the cells with vitamin C taken with food within an hour of zapping.


QE5 and QE4 are Blood Purifiers/Electrifiers that produce the same results as Bob Beck Blood Purifiers, but faster & more efficiently. Both models are very powerful but the feeling is gentle vs. Beck frequency devices that can be quite shocking.

as QE4

QE5 has all the features of QE4 but is more than twice as powerful thanks to the addition of proprietary HFT Technology. This is s High Frequency Transducer that greatly enhances the synergy of copper/copper handholds and footpads.

QE5 includes a further enhanced and much more complex Neodymium Magnet Array and Amethyst Crystal Matrix, as well as other proprietary enhancements. Start zapping at 10 seconds -- only once -- no breaks. Read the Instruction Manual before your first zapping session. Expect deeper penetration with much shorter zapping times than with QE4.

QE5 and QE4's solid copper handholds and footpads create the most powerful synergy of all Ultimate Zapper models. They are a powerhouse with many times the conductivity of aluminum and stainless steel.

A much stronger current is created with all copper, as well as the other enhancements -- a state-of-the-art Neodymium Magnet Array and a state-of-the-art Amethyst Crystal Matrix.

The bottom line is that there is A LOT more power when you arrive at QE5.


Please note: The Ultimate Zapper comes with a FREE 9-volt Universal AC Adaptor for European orders or a FREE 9-volt North American Adaptor for Canada and US orders.
The Universal AC Adaptors for Europe need plug adaptors, we do not supply plug adaptors at this time but they are available in most local electronics stores. 

From QE2 customers

Kimberly R.: I didn't feel anything during the [zapping session] but felt very sleepy & tired afterward ... until 8 PM. I noticed the fullness in my right ear was completely gone. I've had it 24/7 for 8 years. I woke up this morning with more energy than I've had in many weeks. I am very excited about the results. I can give you a stellar testimonial. Jan. 27, 2015

Yoshiro T.: I'm an Acupuncturist. I treat my patients with Vibrational Medicine ... I got QE2 yesterday. I got good results after using it for 15 seconds. Wow! The Utimate Zapper is a good tool for everybody. I want to introduce this zapper [to my patients]. Please tell me how to become a distributor. Apr. 24, 2015

Earl K.: ... about the infection in my foot from the surgery almost 10 years ago ... I'm sitting here with a foot that is almost completely healed ... I had a ravenous sore and lump of about 1/2 inch wide and a lot of pain!! After week 1 there was a scab that appeared and as I pulled on it I could see it was an old stitch left in my foot. Oh but that's not all. The pain persisted and I kept zapping and lo and behold 2 days ago on Saturday morning as I wiped what I thought was a new scab, was actually a huge clot of material and weird things that seemed to be rubber. The old zapper was not strong enough but the new one was strong enough to force this material out of my body after 10 years of dealing with this!! I am very gratified to hear this good news. As of today I have no pain at all and the sore is flat and almost healed. I just wanted to say THANK YOU for what you do and for your zapper. May 12, 2015

Hank W.: [QE2] arrived on Saturday. I tried it on Sunday. My biggest issue is CPPD [a condition similar to rheumatoid or osteo arthritis]. I thought the results would be about like taking Vitamin E or C - i.e., you feel OK and maybe the vitamin caused it or maybe not. Your device, however, provided immediate and clearly beneficial results. Also, I didn't expect the benefit to be even more clearly evident the next day. It was! Mar. 23, 2015

From QE1 customers

Andrea M.: I broke my back 5 years ago and have been in pain in varying degrees ever since. Around 6 months ago I started using the zapper and initially I found that after each zap I had significant pain relief; I was more flexible in my body, and being in less pain I found that I had more energy for life. Feb 19, 2015

Andrew B.: I'm very impressed with the [QE1]. I did my first session today and I could feel the healing energy flowing and I'm feeling very well. Muscle tension vastly reduced to practically zero and feeling distinctly changed for the better. And that's after only one session! Many thanks for a great product. Andrew B. Oct 8, 2014

Lourana H.: I've got to tell you, your zapper is POWERFUL!!! WOW! What a difference! The effect was so strong, it cleared an ear infection overnight, and substantially reduced the mite population on my face and especially in my ears ... Within the first few minutes ... I felt massive movement on all areas I touched. When the movement subsided after a few minutes, I checked the areas by again brushing the damp paper towel over the same area. No more activity. Mites dead. Bless you! Sept. 25, 2014

Jed D.: I'm very pleased ... I have enjoyed some very positive & quantifiable results, confirmed by synchrometer/vega testing ... I'm a very happy [QE1] customer and enthusiastically recommend it. Jul. 24, 2014

Dr. Jerry. L. Tennant, M.D., has written a series of books entitled Healing is Voltage. His work reinforces the research I have been doing for the past 22 years that is incorporated in the design of QE1plus & QE2version3 & QE3. My research pertains to the link between the voltage supplied by the AC adapter and zapping results. AC input becomes DC output -- identical to battery voltage but not discharging as is the case with batteries. The voltage remains constant. The adapter is free with QE1plus & QE2version3 QE3.

The Relative Strength Charts (below) clearly show there is a very powerful difference between The 5 Ultimate Zappers and the competition. These charts show the stunning survey results after 2 years of field testing The Ultimate Zappers vs. 6 competitors using a cumulative point system that reflects actual results and the time it took to obtain those results. As you can see in the charts, there's simply no contest.

1. Near 100% DUTY CYCLE

The Ultimate Zapper's positive offset square wave reaches deeply into the body due to a near 100% Duty Cycle that is 2x longer than other zappers'. Scientific studies show that a  minimum 88% Duty Cycle produces superior results and treatment time is reduced by 64% with a 90% Duty Cycle.

Without Body Contact

The Ultimate Zapper                            All Other Zappers

This study shows high Duty Cycle x voltage greatly improves results. The Ultimate Zapper's Duty Cycle x 10.5 volts penetrates much deeper than zappers with a 50% Duty Cycle x a discharging 9-volt battery.


The Ultimate Zapper's stabilized wave stays square with body contact. This creates superior results in synergy with its other powerful features.

My Power Amplifier
Looks Cheaply Made ... To Some Competitors

Point-to-point hard wiring is how all electronics were made before printed cicuit boards (PCBs). Scientific testing shows the product quality of PCBs degrades from high temperatures during manufacture. They look neat but often fail. Read about PCB failures on WikiPedia and here.

In fact, hard wiring creates a superior signal to PCBs. For this reason many high end audio companies still use hard wiring exclusively. Above is my Atma-Sphere S-30 amplifier made with hard wiring by world-renowned Ralph Karsten. It is not pretty but it creates world-class sound. Hard wiring is one of the secrets of The Ultimate Zapper's success. It has not had a single circuit failure in 20 years. Other zappers use PCBs.


The AC adapters that come with QE1plus & QE2version3 & QE3 produce a constant 10.5 volts with distortion-free wave & undiminished effectiveness. Battery discharge causes wave distortion that diminishes effectiveness.

On the left is all models of The Ultimate Zapper
On the right is battery zappers


Dr. Hulda Clark stated that the zapper's voltage must be at least 9 volts or more at all times for the square wave to be therapeutically effective on the cellular level. The Ultimate Zapper is powered by AC adapters that deliver 10.5 to 12 volts at all times. Since there is no discharging battery there is no loss of voltage and no loss of therapeutic power.

QE1plus comes with a free 9-volt AC adapter that keeps voltage and amperage constant for optimum therapeutic results. Overseas orders for QE1plus ship with a free 9-volt Universal AC Adapter (for use worldwide). QE2version3 & QE3 come with a free 12-volt universal AC adapter (for use world-wide) that keeps voltage & amperage constant for optimum therapeutic results. The adapters are 100% safe -- read why.

If you are away from a wall plug and are using the 9-volt battery, to keep the 12 features at optimum therapeutic levels use a rechargeable battery and top it up after each session. I recommend this 9-volt low self-discharge rechargeable battery for $4.50 -- good for 1000 charges.


QE1plus & QE2version3 & QE3 have the highest conductivity of any zappers thanks to the synergy of their professional gold-plated Neutrik connectors, internal circuitry, lead-free silver alloy solder and AC adapters. All 4 models are RoHS Compliant -- "green" thanks to lead-free components. Read more.

100% Lead-free solder
and components

Why lead-free solder? Lead is a very poor conductor of electricity. Although this is common knowledge it is frequently used in solder because it is soft, pliable, melts at a low temperature and is relatively cheap. However, the downsides are that its softness and pliability make it an unreliable adhesive. Not to mention the fact that lead is very toxic. Lead and other substances used in manufacturing are so toxic that Europe has instituted the Reduction of Hazardous Substances (RoHS) act. Any new product to be sold in the EU (and California) must adhere to strict anti-toxic measures. Replacing lead-containing components and lead solder in The Ultimate Zapper with lead-free components and lead-free silver alloy solder gives it the highest electrical conductivity of any zapper because silver has the highest conductivity of any element.

RoHS hit the European electronic community hard. Many electronic products had to be re-engineered with new lead-free parts and lead-free solder. In the long run, this is great for the environment and for customers. Removing poor conductive materials from the signal path enhances conductivity and improves results dramatically. The Ultimate Zapper is 100% RoHS Compliant. 


Dr. Clark said "footpads help greatly". They increase penetration up to 77%. and allow for hands-free zapping and pet zapping. One copper footpad and one stainless steel footpad produce the best synergy for QE2version3. This is accomplished with one copper footpad and one aluminum Footpad for QE3. Two stainless steel footpads produce the best synergy for the other 5 models. Click here for the Instruction Manual. Read more about footpads.


The Ultimate Zapper kills pathogens more effectively than other zappers thanks to the synergy of its 12 features. QE1plus features a frequency of 2500Hz. QE2version3 & QE3 feature a frequency of 2000Hz.


Dr. Clark published a chart with parasite frequencies. So, many people concluded zappers are frequency generators that target individual pathogens with a specific frequency. They are not. Zappers use a positive offset square-wave and a single frequency to sweep through all frequencies. That's the magical secret of zapper technology discovered by Dr. Clark that defines zappers. Unfortunately, she created "confusion damage" with her chart.

Dr. Clark's own A6 zapper was weak, but one frequency (30,000 Hz.) was what made it tick long with its square-wave. Ironically, Dr. Clark knew 2500 Hz. was the best frequency but kept her 30,000 Hz. for research continuity. The Ultimate Zapper uses one low frequency.

Multiple-frequency "zappers" are feature-weak. They cover their weakness by adding redundant frequencies, going by various names: dual zapper, multi-frequency zapper, sweep zapper, programmable zapper, smart key zapper, switchable zapper, combined-frequency zapper. Their focus on frequency ignores the powerful synergy of multiple key features -- as per The Ultimate Zapper's synergistic 12-feature formula. Please note that all digital "zappers" and multple frequency "zappers" are frequency generators, not zappers. Read about the difference between zappers and frequency generators here.

The secret to The Ultimate Zapper's effectiveness is the synergy of its unique 12-features, not the frequency alone. Frequency is only a part of the story. There can be no stronger evidence for The Ultimate Zapper's success than 890 unsolicited testimonial in the Testimonial Archive


Harmonics are secondary frequencies that enhance the primary wave. Electronics expert Dr. Richard Loyd tested all major zappers. He found The Ultimate Zapper creates more harmonics than any other zapper. Electronics expert Giovanni P. backed this with oscilloscope views & research. Digital zappers that dial frequencies create no harmonics. FAQ #4.

The Ultimate Zapper                            All Other Zappers


QE1plus & QE2version3 & QE3 have a powerful blood purification and electrification capacity (patented elsewhere). This is the same effect created by Bob Beck magnetic pulsers. See scientific proof. See Instruction #25 and testimonials on cancer, HIV and Lyme in the Testimonial Archive.


Electroporation temporarily increases cell porosity, enhancing the effect of supplements, nutrients, herbs & medicine (dosages may reduce). It also enhances homeopathic remedies & colloidal silver. Zapper makers say zappers can't create electroporation. They mean their zappers. The Ultimate Zapper's Electroporation Effect is proved by the Electroporation Challengeand unsolicited Electroporation Testimonials. See this link to an important NIH report on clinical trials using Electroporation for melanoma.

Electroporation also oxygenates and thins the blood. Red blood cells are clumped before zapping (below left) and freshly oxygenated 30 minutes later (below right). Scientific paper.

Terminator and Longevity say you need to alkalize your diet to benefit from their zappers. The Ultimate Zapper requires no change in diet. Electroporation actually enhances the effects of an alkaline diet.


An expanded aura enhances the body's healing powers. Documentation. Dowsers love The Ultimate Zapper. "Your zapper increases the human aura 3 times. It is a very healing instrument." "Arthur Doerksen's Auto-Zap works -- but not well. Yours won among all [the zappers] I tested on the net."

NEODYMIUM MAGNETS: QE1plus & QE2version3 & QE3 include an array of the world's strongest magnets that create a powerful magnetic field. Studies show magnetic therapy reduces inflammation, alleviates pain, stimulates circulation and improves energy. Magnetic pulsers can be harsh, but QE1plus & QE2 & QE3 have a gentle healing power. 

 features an enhanced Neodymium 32-Magnet Array. QE3features a State-of-the-Art Neodymium 32-Magnet Array. The addition of 8 N50 Neodymium Magnets to QE2version3 and QE3 vs. QE1plus boosts the variable magnetic field by a factor from 100% to 980%. This huge increase helps produce a phenomenal improvement in therapeutic results and speed. The Magnet Array in QE3 & QE2version3 & QE1plus produces a gentle and constant magnetic pulse -- unlike Bob Beck magnetic pulsers that can be quite harsh, producing strong bursts of microcurrent.


This Quantum Feature is available only in QE1plus QE2version3 & QE3

AMETHYST CRYSTALS: Amethyst has well-documented healing powers on the physical, emotional and spiritual levels. Amethyst, a variety of quartz, also has the energies inherent in quartz. It is powerful and gentle in its action. Read this: Amethyst 1Amethyst 2Amethyst 3.

There are no 20-minute breaks with QE1plus or QE2version3 & QE3 -- no breaks at all. They are designed for Duration ZappingQE1plus and QE2version3 & QE3 should be used by sensitive people starting at 10 seconds. They may add 5 seconds per day up to their maximum level of comfort, always staying within their comfort zone. Sensitive people may use QE1plus for long sessions if they are within their comfort zone but they should not use QE2version3 & QE3 for long sessions.

People who are not sensitive can start at 15 seconds. They may zap for long durations within their comfort zone. Since everyone is different and each case is different, everyone will have to experiment to find out what works best with Duration Zapping. Some people can only do Duration Zapping for 10 or 15 seconds. Others can zap for 1 hour or more. Always stay within your comfort zone.


QE2version3 and QE3 were both in field testing (beta testing) for 8 months. Testers are reporting excellent results for a wide variety of complaints. Read the remarkable results in 25 new QE2 testimonials.


Copper handholds and footpads with competitors' Hulda Clark zappers do not deliver the same strong conductivity QE2version3 delivers with copper and steel handholds and footpads -- and that QE3 delivers with copper and aluminum handohlds and footpads -- because their battery zappers have low voltage and amperage and do not have QE2version3's 20 features or QE3's added features. QE2version3 & QE3 are an all-out assault on parasites with a combination of copper and stainless steel accessories and copper and aluminum acessories that optimize synergy. Competitors simply offer weak 1 or 2-feature Hulda Clark battery zappers.


NEODYMIUM MAGNETS: Neodymium rare earth magnets are the most powerful magnets in the world, much more powerful than ferrous magnets. Studies show that magnetic therapies reduce inflammation and alleviate pain and stimulate circulation. The powerful array of 32 N50 neodymium magnets in QE2version3 & QE3 also helps to increase energy. Its flow of healing electro-magnetic energy is more gentle than magnetic pulsers since the signal flow is constant. This makes its healing energy more effective.

AMETHYST CRYSTALS: QE2version3 & QE3 contain dozens of amethyst crystals. Amethyst has powerful healing properties on the physical, emotional and spiritual planes. Its healing powers have been documented through the ages. As a variety of quartz, amethyst also has the energies inherent in quartz. It is both powerful and gentle. Please see these informative links: Amethyst 1Amethyst 2Amethyst 3.


QE2version3 & QE3 combine zapper technology with pulser technology. You get the best of both worlds. Compared with Beck and other magnetic pulsers, QE2version3 & QE3 operate on a different principle. Magnetic pulsers produce short bursts of micropulses at high intensity with very low frequency. Many people are not able to tolerate the sensation of very strong pulses produces by these devices. QE2version3 & QE3 produce a constant flow of magnetic pulses at low intensity with a higher frequency. It is very gentle in this respect. The most anyone will feel is a faint pulsing sensation. PEMF (Pulsed Electromagnetic Field) devices have a long and highly successful therapeutic history.

QE1plus has a very powerful Electorporation Effect & QE2version3 & QE3havean even more powerful Electroporation Effect. Magnets have been shown to magnify conventional drug treatments at a cellular level, resulting in the need for reduced drug dosage. It's not possible to say with accuracy what the effects are with any specific medication because the research has not been conducted yet. Therefore, we recommend that you consult your doctor about the possibility of reducing your medication dosage prior to using QE1plus or QE2version3 or QE3. For similar reasons, everyone should also avoid alcohol and recreational drugs or any potentially "toxic" substance within 3-4 hours of using QE1plus or QE2version3 or QE3. The use of powerful magnets truly encourages and speeds up the body's natural healing abilities. Although we've experienced some amazing results with this therapy, please remember that we are each individually unique. What works for one person may not work as well for another - so, as with any other therapy -- results may vary.


A double blind test:

From http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/16749411 

"... PEMT [pulsed electro-magnetic therapy] reduced pain and disability and appears to be a potentially useful therapeutic tool for the conservative management of chronic lower back pain. Research show that electro-magnetic therapy is very effective."


The following discussion is adapted from this site:


In An Introduction to Magnet Therapy, magnotherapy expert Gloria Vergari, founder of Norstar BioMagnetics notes that our bodies are designed to heal themselves, whenever possible. Magnets help speed up the process, and much more. As a species we were developed in an environment, rich in magnetic fields, oxygen and water. We are electro-magnetically charged.

Instead of living in nature, in today's world we live and work inside concrete structures and metal tubes; we insulate ourselves from the natural magnetic field our bodies need to function at their optimum potential. The result is that our health pays the price. In fact, we need 5 'essentials' for a healthy life; oxygen, water, food, exercise and magnetic fields.

Think of all the planets, moons and stars, just hanging in space. What keeps them in their own particular place is gravity and magnetic fields continually pulling and opposing, holding the planets in their appointed place and orbits. The Earth is in fact a giant magnet. From physics, 4 forces give and maintain order on our planet and in the universe: the weak nuclear force, the strong nuclear force, gravity and the electromagnetic field. The earth, mankind, animals, cells and atoms -- indeed life itself -- are exposed to and charged with, terrestial magnetic fields. Every cell in our body has some energy or force flowing through it. This magnetic energy field we were born into is crucial, in fact vital for our health and well-being.

Living within today's modern world and lifestyle, we receive less energy from the terrestial magnetic fields than we have in the past, in the days when we would live and work outside, in what was to us our natural environment. The changes we have made to our lifestyle have been major; they have occurred in a relatively short space of time, not giving us time to evolve and adapt physiologically. The changes that have occurred over the last 2 generations mean that we expose ourselves constantly to unnatural magnetic environments. 

Many of us work in metal framed buildings, are exposes to electrical appliances, lights, heating, computers, mobile phones, microwaves and TVs -- all with their own magnetic environments. Modern electromagnetic pollution causes a new type of stress on our bodies from radio waves, microwaves, electric fields from overhead cables, mobile telephone towers and even our own home lighting and power. 

This cocktail of electromagnetism depletes our own natural energy source. How much is electromagnetism the subject of intensive research? In Japan, links between electromagnetic pollution and 'modern' diseases (e.g. ME, Myalgic Encephalomyelitis or Chronic Fatigue Syndrome) are being heavily researched. More widely, links of electromagnetic pollution to a variety of disorders including neck and shoulder tension, headaches, lassitude, chest pains, lumbago, insomnia and constipation are being established.

The History of Magnetic Therapy Magnetic therapy is not new. Over 4,000 years ago, Chinese Medicine was based on the understanding that good health depended on the circulation of vital energies, known as Qi (Chi). The first major work on healing was called 'The Emperor's Book of Internal Medicine', which recorded how imbalances could be corrected by the use of acupuncture and magnetic stones.

In Egypt, Cleopatra, well known for her youthful looks and beauty, used a lodestone (magnet) in an amulet on her forehead to preserve her youth. We know today through science, that at the back of the forehead lies the pineal gland, home to the chemical 'melatonin' which is known as the 'youth hormone' due to its potential for cell repair and anti-ageing benefits. History of medicine is dotted with anecdotal evidence of the power of magnets.

But when, in more modern times, did we really understand the therapeutic power of magnets? Modern or Therapeutic Magnets When man first ventured into space in the 1960s, this was the first time man had left the intensity of the earth's magnetic field. On return to earth, even after a very short period in space, it was discovered that the astronauts were losing bone density, their immune systems were being affected and they were experiencing calcium deficiency, meaning that they had to have intensive medical treatment following their return to earth.

The solution was discovered to be magnetism and the need to place the astronauts within an environment that simulated the earth's magnetic field. However, traditional magnets made of iron were too heavy, so this led to the development of extremely high-powered magnets that were lightweight. These are the magnets and materials that are now widely used in modern magnet therapy.

Today, when astronauts go into space, they wear suits lined with flexible magnetic materials and the spacecraft has a magnetic lining. The difference to the astronauts upon return from space today enables them to go straight from the space-craft into their press-conference!

The strength of the magnets used is important. A magnet that may hold a note on the refrigerator door is about -100 gauss (gauss is the term for measuring magnetic strength); whilst a magnet now used in health care (of the same size and weight) can hold a magnetic strength of -12,300 gauss. What this means to us is that it is now possible to have lightweight, portable magnets that are strong enough to stimulate changes in the way our cells behave and react. 

How Do Magnets Work? The science of Magnotherapy indicates that 2 vital things happen when a magnet is placed on the skin:

First, the soft tissue will lengthen and will help to relax a muscle or ligament that is damaged or traumatised. It will work in an area and depth directly proportional to the type and strength of the magnet used. Depending on the strength, you can effect a change to a radius of between 3-5 inches around any one magnet and to a similar depth. 

Secondly, as the tissue relaxes, more oxygen and blood flow is able to gain access to the damaged site, and so it enters the damaged area with increasing magnitude. This effect can be seen using thermal imaging techniques. Normally an injured site, whether from arthritis, torn muscles or any other condition, will be surrounded by inflammation. This can comprise of lactic acids, calcium and other deposits. Basically the site is 'hot' with acidity. The increases in oxygen and blood flow brings with it increased alkalinity. This neutralises the acidity, allowing the body to re-commence its own healing abilities. Magnets merely encourage this in a truly dramatic way.

Once the tissue area starts detoxifying, the thermal benefits of magnets can begin. As the blood in our body continuously circulates, periodically, it comes close to the magnets in QE1plus & QE2version3. & QE3. In this magnetic field, the ions in the blood become agitated and are attracted to the magnet. As a result, atomic particles begin to spin inside the cell -- known as The Hall Effect.

This "switching-on" causes the body to stimulate its own beta-endorphin pain relieving processes. Thus, magnet therapy activates the following responses in the body;

1. Lengthens and relaxes tissue.
2. Starts the process of flushing out debris and inflammation from the site.
3. Starts the body's own pain relieving system. 

If you wish to target a specific area in the body to maximize the therapeutic effects of QE1plus or QE2version3 or QE3 place the handholds and/or footpads near the area you wish to treat.
