electroacupuncture according to Voll

Pseudomedicine
A system of pseudodiagnosis and pseudotherapy based on the “Dermatron”, a galvanometric device invented in the 1970s by a German physician, Reinhold Voll, which he believed measured “electromagnetic energy flow” along acupuncture channels and provided information on organ functions. EAV practitioners claimed to treat “imbalances” identified by such devices by electrically stimulating the acupuncture points and/or administering homeopathic remedies.
