Abstract

The stimulation therapy equipment generates a low-output laser beam changed over by a switch between continuous and intermittent operation, and applicable by means of a fibre bundle acting as a light conductor. The optical fibre bundle is divided into several part-bundles, preferably five (111-115). This allows simultaneous intermittent or continuous cutaneous application of small amounts of energy of predetermined value at several predetermined acupuncture points, along a number of meridians, or inside stimulation therapy zones. Each part-bundle has at the end a device (21) for securing it to the skin.
