Photo-illustrated explanation of all available Acuscope and Myopulse accessories
A wide variety of electrodes have been developed over the years in order to provide practitioners in every field with a vast number of possible applications.  Treatment procedures will vary according to individual approach.  Becoming familiar with these tools in your Acuscope-Myopulse Tool Box and utilizing a variety of approaches over a series of treatments, produces the best cumulative results.  



Electrolyte Solutions and Conductive Creams
Description of all basic Conductive Electrolyte Creams & Solutions
The interface between the metal alloy tips, plates, probes, and rollers must include a conductive medium - a solution or cream - for the current to conduct through the skin without resistance.  The manufacturer of the Acuscope has developed specially formulated electrolyte products for this purpose.  Using them, the instruments can clearly acquire biofeedback to "read" and analyze the condition of the cells, and deliver the precisely configured corrective influence into the tissue via microcurrent carrier waves.

Most Highly Recommended Resources for Acuscope-Myopulse BioTechnicians

 
***********************************************************************************

Here, below, is a comprehensive list of items that are of practical value for any Acuscope-Myopulse Treatment Room.  As you will see, these are items that are NOT provided by the Acuscope manufacturer or Distributor with your equipment purchase.  They are recommended by your Trainer, Jan Rossen Dacri!

You will find  links to on-line sources for each item. 

It's a long page, so keep scrolling . . . all the way down.


***********************************************************************************

ACCESSORY TRAY STAND

 
A perfect place to set down the probes, solution cup, spatulas, solutions and creams being used during treatment. The Instand can be lifted and moved from place to place effortlessly. The height is easily adjusted. We suggest that you place a white hand towel on top of the non-slip surface.  Place conveniently next to your treatment table.
Also, if you are showing a DVD, a PowerPoint, or a website to a Patient, an Instand can be placed  for best viewing the screen.  (Lower tray is optional.  Good for placing cell phones.)


OTHER ACCESSORY TRAY OPTIONS: 
  
BE SURE TO NOTE THAT THESE ARE LIGHTWEIGHT TROLLEYS FOR ACCESSORIES ONLY -
NOT TO BE USED TO HOLD THE ACUSCOPE & MYOPULSE UNITS.  SEE "EQUIPMENT ROLL CARTS" BELOW FOR THAT PURPOSE.
From Sally Beauty Supply Called "Facial Trolley."  It is easily moved around the room on casters.

********************************************************************************************************************

SURGE PROTECTOR

An absolute necessity to protect your Acuscope-Myopulse System.  A sudden power surge, spike, or other electrical abnormality may be harmful to the Charger, Battery, charging circuitry, and/or other components.  Better to be safe than sorry! 

Here are two we highly recommend:

 
Tripp Lite 8 Outlet Industrial Safety Surge Protector
Power Strip with 12 Ft Wrappable Cord (TLM812SA)

$ 33.60






APC P11VT3 3020 SurgeArrest 11 Outlet


$19.98 



THESE TWO CHOICES are practical because the Acuscope and Myopulse Charger Modules are bulky and these outlets are spaced far enough apart to accommodate the three Chargers of a Complete three instrument System.



**************************************************************************************************************************


ELECTROLYTE SOLUTION CUPS

Necessary!  To dip the Probe Tips when using Trigger Probe and Non-Trigger Probe or Y-Probe or Grand Ball Probe or Twin Tip Trigger Probe.  

Also used for mixing Solutions & Creams together to be scooped out with Plastic Scooper (see below).

Great source:  www.amazon.com


NEW!  This size is 3.25 oz. and allows for the placement of medium length Y-Probe Tips to both dip into Solution/Cream at the same time.





**************************************************************************************************************************

ELECTROLYTE CREAM SCOOPERS (spatulas)

For scooping conductive cream out of the jar.  
No double-dipping . . . to avoid contamination!

Purchase in quantities of 25, 50, 100, 200, or 500.



This spatula is perfectly flat.  Other types have a small cup-like scooper which is impractical for our purposes.




**************************************************************************************************************************
SMALL WATER SPRAY BOTTLE 


Keep a small Water Spray Bottle filled with Distilled Water on your equipment cart.  The fine, light spray is used to re-wet solutions and creams on skin during treatment.
.Fantasea Fine Mist Spray Bottle, 2.5 Ounce

This one is inexpensive; their website comments are very positive:

"This pillow is great!  I was hesitant at first because the price is so cheap, I was worried that its quality would be cheap too.  BUT IT'S NOT!!  It is very squishy and comfy and not too firm.  If you're looking for a firm pillow, this isn't it; but if you're looking for a looooong basic pillow, this is it!"


It is highly recommended that you have a collection of pillows in a variety of sizes.  One or more might be used are used under the head when lying on the back, one under the knees when lying on the back, under the feet when lying face down, or on the lap when sitting with hand electrodes being used.

CROCK POT

Keep your wash cloths hot, wet, ready to use to wipe off solution and cream.  A Crock Pot works great for this purpose.  Be sure to have some water in the bottom, don't let it get dry while still on.  Use a tongs to safely lift out the steaming hot cloths.  Be sure to plug it in far enough away from the Acuscope and Myopulse so it doesn't interfere by radiating wall-current EMF.

This is a great, inexpensive one that comes from Target.




*************************************************************************************************************************

MINI HOT TOWEL CABINET

This could be an even better solution for keeping your wet washcloths warm and ready to use for wiping off the electrolyte creams and solutions after treatment.

Highly recommended by some of our best Acuscope-Myopullse practitioners.

Highly Recommended Healthy Lifestyle Products:


NADA CHAIR for Back Support

This one is a useful item for your practice and also to recommend to patients for their own use at home, in school, at work . . . or to take to a ball game!


If you must give an Acuscope and/or Myopulse treatment while they are sitting up, without back support behind them, have your patient put this on . . . unless you are treating their knees, of course!
 
 Nada Chair Back Support –  www.nadachair.com   
   


***********************************************************************************


REBOUNDER MINI TRAMPOLIN
E

Self-paced, self-regulated safe cardio using a "mini-trampoline" - but NOT for jumping! 

Simply step, march, lift one foot at a time, or rock from side-to-side on the rubberized surface.  No jarring impact on the spine, joints, or organs.  Safely improves Lymphatic Circulation.  

Holding onto the "Stabilizing Bar" is secure and safe even for those still in pain or not yet finished recovering after an accident or surgery.  

Fun with your favorite music!

The best one available by far is the Needak Rebounder.  
Its sturdy construction and top grade materials will last for ages.

The Folding model can be easily folded in half for taking with you (after the bar is removed, of course).  Comes with a convenient carrying case.
                       
Specifically, this one:  
   
Folding Soft-Bounce Rebounder w/ Stabilizing Bar
("Skirt covering the springs are available in several colors.)
 


*********************************************************************************

INDOOR WORKOUT SHOES

These are the perfect indoor exercise shoes.  I call them "Flexible Breathers" because of the featherweight, porous material; and they bend completely in the middle! 

Ideal for use on the Rebounder, and for stretching using a non-slip mat.  The straight cut toe
provides a visual line for alignment of the feet; the completely flexible mid-section allows for lifting, holding under the arch, stretching.  Not for outdoor use.

Ph TESTING STRIPS67

The Ph of your Saliva
 can reveal whether you are alkaline or acidic.  Eating certain foods, and food combinations, can lead to stomach upset, gas, and dangerous, uncomfortable acidity.   

A healthy level of alkalinity should be maintained.  These little, convenient dispensers of saliva testing paper will provide the opportunity to test yourself (or your patients) anytime, anywhere:


(Note:  if the Gain on the Acuscope  must be exceedingly high for the initial "Foot Gates" reading, be sure to test for acidity.  You may be saving a life!)

ESSENTIAL OILS

Discover your sense of smell!  The therapeutic benefits of breathing the sweet, pungent aroma blends of natural herbs, spices, and oils cannot be overestimated.  When sprayed into the air you inhale through the nose, the benefits enter your system in a most refreshing and stimulating way.  It is both delicious for the Olfactory (smell) Sense as well as helpful to the Endocrine System.  

These blends help the body to attain "Whole Body Positive Health" according to Dr. Debrah Zepf, one of our most beloved Practitioners, who did her PhD Thesis on this subject. Through her clinical research, she found that using aromatic medicine blends can lower cholesterol and improve general health!  She has developed a product line that is pure and natural.  A different blend for each of the Energy Centers (glands) of the Human Body.  You can easily incorporate the use of Aroma Therapy into your Healthcare Practice in combination with Acuscope-Myopulse Treatments.  And enjoy using Aroma Therapy in your personal life as well.  Be sure to recommend this line of products to others.  

Available as Essential Oil Blend and/or Spray Bottle "Spritzers"

INDOOR PLANTS

It is a great concept to have live plants producing oxygen for you and your Patients/Clients to breathe in an enclosed indoor space like your treatment room.  If natural sunlight is minimal or even non-existent in your room(s), you can still have live plants growing, cleansing and delivering fresh air into the environment we all must breathe!  Add Full Spectrum Lighting and you can have as many plants  as you wish . . . 



This (photo left) is the Philodendron Brasil.  
My favorite plant!   Heart-shaped leaves;
each uniquely patterned leaf emerges in 
three colors of green.

Other great indoor plants are Pothos, ZeeZee (Zamofolia), 
Scheffelera, Lucky Bamboo, and Pachira ("Good Fortune") Plants.

CRYSTALS

Holding  quartz and other crystals in your hands feels good.  

These clear quartz heart-shaped crystals fit perfectly into the contour of the palm, while the fingers wrap comfortably around the smooth rounded shape.  Hand to patients to hold during treatment, especially during relaxation procedure.  




Here is a collection of crystals and earth stones that may be held in various combinations.  For example, while holding a heart-shaped clear quartz in the right hand, hold one of the other types of crystal in the left.  Or, hold only the smoky quartz ball (upper left) in both hands; or the fluorite ball (to the right) in combination with the fluorite frog.  

A pendulum can steady the mind, swinging right and left or back and forth while holding another crystal in the other hand.  Breathe in long slow, deep exhalations and inhalations to help circulate oxygen and energy.  It is thought that crystals are made of trapped frequencies, hence their color.  



Shown below are a set that correspond to the "Chakras" (glands of the Endocrine System; energy centers of the body and head).  From left to right (base to crown):

Red Jasper - Carnelian - Citrine - Rose Quartz - Lapis - Sodalite - Amethyst
                                                      Green Quartz

To purchase a set of the above heart-shaped crystals, call Jewelry & Mineral of Las Vegas 702.733.7166 and ask for Mike.  Let him know that you are an Acuscope Practitioner and he will know what you want.  He is a wealth of information as a resource; and a very special person.  The huge store in Las Vegas is definitely worth visiting if/when you are in town.  It is on Sahara, just north of The Strip.  

They will accept credit card payment over the phone and will safely pack and ship your crystals anywhere.  These make great gifts for anyone "to have and to hold!"







Plants and crystals . . . a good combination.  See Smoky Quartz sphere in the photo (right) with Zamofolia and Philodendron Brasil also Kukui Nut Necklace from Hawaii.
