Direct Technique is the one most people know about.  It refers to the fact that you are applying the electricity from the wand Directly from the wand to another person, by means of an electrode inserted into the wand.  The electricity goes from the electrode Directly to the other person.

To begin, make sure your wand is unplugged, or turned off with a footswitch.  You can also turn your wand down to change electrodes, but you can do that after you are comfortabl with a ‘live’ wand.  Insert an electrode into the wand by pushing straight in JUST until the electrode is held.  Don’t force an electrode deep into the wand, it should go in just until it is held securely.  Always take care not to ‘jam’ it in…just get it in there till its tight enough to hold.

hold your violet wand upHold the wand as shown in our tennis racket diagram.  You can move it around of course, but if you dip close to horizontal or below horizontal, the vibrating contacts inside your wand could move too far apart and your wand will cut off.  This is normal.  If that happens, just hold your wand more like this, or turn up the ‘volume’ with the adjustment knob to overcome the contacts’ movement.

Turn on your wand by using a footswitch, remote switch, or plugging it in.  Keeping your hands away from the business end, turn up the adjustment knob to where you want it.

Try using the wand on your own arm first.  The object is to play with the distance from the electrode glass to the person’s skin.  You want about a 1/4 inch ‘zap gap’ between the electrode and the person for the spark to jump across.  A spark that doesn’t have too far to jump is a lighter spark.  Pull the wand away and make the spark jump farther, it will have more bite. At about 1/2 inch away (depending on how high you have your wand turned up) the gap will be too far for a spark to jump across.  Just move your wand in a bit closer.

You’ll get variations in sensation just from varying the distance of the electrode to the person.  You can also get variations in sensation from using different parts of the electrode.  This is because if the glass is wider, the electrical charge dissipates into the air more.  The smaller the glass, the more electrical charge is conducted to the end person, and thus the spark and sensation is stronger.  You can get several types of feeling out of one electrode by using the large surface or a small surface of the same electrode!  This makes the feelings of a violet wand unpredictable, and very finely nuanced as you use it.
