Enhancing Bio-electrode Therapy:
A Simpler Protocol Targeting the Feet

Over the past few decades of clinical use, Bio-electrode Therapy has continued to evolve, with recent research and clinical insights offering refined treatment strategies. The protocols on this page show particular promise.

In a Nutshell:

It has been found that when electrodes are placed closely together, the electrical resistance between them is reduced. This reduction in resistance allows for a more concentrated flow of current, leading to a stronger electrical field. (This phenomenon is often referred to as "concentration of electric field lines" or "concentration of electric potential.") This protocol focuses on placing two electrodes at specific points on the feet only, for enhanced efficacy and amplification of the therapeutic effects.

Advantages of This Approach:
  1. More Secure Electrode Placement: When secured at the ends of foot meridians, electrodes remain in place for longer durations than hand-placed electrodes, which are prone to displacement from routine activities and handwashing. Longer-lasting electrode adherence allows for longer-lasting therapeutic effect.

  2. Enhanced Bioelectric Influence: The close proximity of electrodes on foot meridians facilitates a more potent influence on the body's endogenous bioelectric field (Qi), fostering stronger currents and electrical fields, and enhanced treatment outcomes.

  1. Using a meridian chart (a simple one for lay people can be found here), locate the pain and identify the meridian(s) that pass through the area.

  2. Follow each identified meridian to its Jing-Well point, which will be found on either a foot or hand. If the Jing-Well point for that meridian is on a foot, placement of the two electrodes is simple, using the illustrations below. If the Jing-Well point is located on a hand, you’ll need to take an additional step: Using the “Placement of Two Electrodes” chart below, identify the connecting (paired) meridian, then place the two electrodes on the foot opposite to the hand, according to the illustration.

  3. If insufficient relief occurs, it is often due to resistance or a blockage in either the targeted meridian or its connecting (paired) meridian. In such cases, the flow of energy can deviate from the intended path to an adjacent meridian, diluting the power of the microcurrent where it is most needed. To correct this, secure a single electrode on the Jing-Well point of the hand on the opposite side of the treated foot, according to the "Placement of Two Electrodes" chart below.


Example: When treating a frozen left shoulder—a very complex condition because multiple meridians (LU, LI, PC, TW, SI, and HT) pass through that area—identify which meridian(s) are passing closest to the pain. Let’s say you’ve identified the Large Intestine (LI) pathway. That meridian leads to the hand—in this case, the left one—but in the other direction it pairs up with the Stomach (ST) meridian leading to the foot, which is of course where you want to start. So follow ST to the right foot (always use the foot opposite the hand), and place the electrodes on the appropriate points. If upon doing this, the pain has not largely or completely subsided, then place an additional electrode on LI1 on the left hand. Usually this will greatly enhance the effect of the electrodes on the foot and improvement will be felt immediately by the pain sufferer.

IMPORTANT NOTE: When treating systemic conditions such as opioid withdrawal, affecting the entire body, all of the 12 regular meridians can be treated by securing the electrodes on one foot. The treatment strategy for this “All-Meridian Foot Method”  is summarized in the table and illustrations below.

The Placement of Two Electrodes Closely Together on the Foot Meridians

(With the Opposite-Side Connecting Paired Meridians)

Treat ST 45 (Silver) & ST 44 (Gold) / Connecting paired meridian, LI 1 (Gold)

Treat SP 1 (Gold) & SP 2 (Silver) / Connecting meridian, HT 9 (Silver)

Treat BL 67 (Silver) & BL 66 (Gold) / Connecting meridian, SI 1 (Gold)

Treat KI 1 (Gold) & KI 2 (Silver) / Connecting meridian, PC 9 (Silver)

Treat GB 44 (Silver) & GB 43 (Gold) / Connecting meridian, TW 1 (Gold)

Treat LV  1 (Gold) & LIV 2 (Silver) / Connecting meridian,  LU 11 (Silver)

*(If using COPPER and silver electrodes, simply reverse the placement shown abovei.e., place silver electrodes where you see the gold ones, and copper electrodes where you see the silver ones. )

Key Points:
  1. Electrode Material Consideration: Using copper and silver ink electrodes, which have larger diameters than the gold and silver pellets, further amplifies microcurrent strength and electrical field size, augmenting treatment outcomes.

  2. Identifying Target Meridians: Utilizing acupuncture meridian charts helps pinpoint affected meridians related to pain or specific ailments, guiding electrode placement for tailored therapy.

  3. Comprehensive Treatment: All twelve regular meridians can be treated through electrode placement on a single foot, allowing for more efficient treatment.


As our understanding of bioelectricity advances, and with increasing acceptance among healthcare professionals, this therapy is poised to evolve further, offering new avenues for holistic wellness. Please join us in exploring this groundbreaking approach to pain relief, where efficacy meets convenience for optimized wellness outcomes.
