Old Doctors Manual for the Master Ray

The Ray is a pleasant, effective means of applying the wonderful power of electricity to the human body without pain, sensation or shock, and is without an equal in relieving pain and congestion, stimulating the circulation and restoring good health, vigor and youth.

   The  Ray is the ordinary electric current obtained from any socket, nebulized and split up into infinite parts and produced through glass applicators called electrodes, in a violet colored stream, hence its name, RAY. A huge voltage of electricity is obtained and applied to the body or hair but without any shock, whatever, the only sensation being a pleasant warmth.

   Ray Treatments surely relieve pain in any part of the body. The electrical currents penetrate every cell and tissue of the body, and tranquilize and soothe. The Rays stimulate and strengthen the vital organs, build up the natural forces, steady the nerves, and develop the general health and conditions of the body. High frequency electrical currents carry oxygen to the blood, thus purifying this vital body fluid. The Rays equalize the circulation in congested parts and restore bruised and inflamed tissues to normal.

   A  Ray is applied through vacuum applicators or electrodes made of annealed glass. These electrodes diffuse the electrical current in sprays of a beautiful deep violet color. These sprays or sparks vibrate to and fro, or oscillate at the rate of several hundred thousand times per second. This rapid vibration is what produces the pleasing, invigorating and corrective effects derived from Ray Treatments.

   A few minutes' application each day, simply holding the applicator in the hand, furnishes a tonic to the system which does much to fight disease and keep the body in a healthy state. Inasmuch as prevention is to be desired a thousandfold rather than a cure, this one point alone makes the Ray indispensable in your home.

   Many authorities state that impaired circulation of the blood causes most ailments. The  Ray by stimulating the circulation, thus wards off disease, saving you much unhappiness and suffering.

   With the knowledge that electricity, Nature's greatest health agent, was a vital factor in the treatment of various diseases of the body, there has been a constant untiring effort to improve the method of application and increase the power of this wonderful agent.

   The wide use of electricity produced through various types of apparatus finally led to the discovery of the  Ray, otherwise known as High Frequency, which has solved many problems and today furnishes the most efficient and powerful phase of electricity known for the relief and destruction of the various diseases and germs of the body.

   The  Ray offers a pleasant, effective means of destroying germs and banishing various diseases while building up the tissues and toning up the system generally. The Ray while introducing all the power of electrical energy into the body, does so without the slightest pain, shock or contraction of muscles. In fact the application of the Violet Ray produces a pleasing sensation. The amazing results secured through Ray treatment, immediately caused it to be accepted by the professions, and today you can hardly find any physician's office not equipped with Ray Apparatus.

   Now this remarkable factor is made available to you for use in your own home, at a price within the reach of anyone. We have built an effective Ray instrument that is the essence of simplicity, made so a child may operate it, and at the same time we have an instrument that produces the Ray unexcelled by machines costing many times as much without the unique and practical features of our instruments.

                             WHAT HIGH Frequency RAYS DO

   The Rays or High Frequency Currents benefit all living matter. Through the glass vacuum applicator light, heat, electric energy and ozone are created. These forces are uniformly, potent in relieving and eliminating human ailments. The Rays present a remedy upon which we can rely. They are positive and certain in action. They will reach where medicine does not and often cannot reach – yet they cause no pain, no disagreeable sensation, no discomfort. They furnish a soothing relief. They destroy germs and have a strong power over infection.

   The uses for the Ray are practically unlimited. Not only are ordinary pains and aches removed, but deep seated ailments of long standing are often entirely eliminated.



There is no danger with the Ray. It can he applied to the most sensitive parts and the treatment is agreeable and exhilarating. You simply connect the machine to any convenient light socket on direct or alternating current and it is ready for any treatment. People were very skeptical about the claims that we made for Ray treatments till they found that physicians not only strongly endorsed its use, but treated their patients with it with very gratifying results. You will find the Ray in the office of many doctors. The Ray in the home is good health insurance.


Spinal Cord is contained in the Backbone or Spinal Column.  The Spinal Cord is an extension of the brain.  The nerves branch out from the spinal cord and go to all parts and organs of the body.


Larynx and parotid gland 

Phrenic nerve supplies diaphragm 

Upper trachia and esophagus 

7th cervical nerve 

Inferior cervical ganglia of sympathetic nervous system 

8th cervical nerve 

Bronchial tubes 

Upper heart                                                                          


Lower heart 


Stomach and duodenum 



Pancreas and spleen 



Kidneys and prostate 

Bladder, peritoneum, 

Right side supplies the cecum and appendix 

Left side supplies the sigmoid process 

Bladder and lower bowel


   Pain or tenderness at any point along the spine signifies involvement of that corresponding organ.  Both the organ and the spine should be treated.

   By Ray treatments these Spinal Nerve Centers can be stimulated to cause the parts and organs which are controlled by them to respond.

   High frequency application to the correct spinal region will restore an organ which has lost its natural tone or shows impaired activity. The normal state of the organ or part will be regained so that its duty can be properly carried out.




   The following are suggestions. In most instances the individual will develop their own technique in their own case.

   THe Ray treatments need not be of long duration. Short treatments at frequent intervals are very effective. Always start with the weakest current possible. The initial discharge which occurs when you bring the electrode to the body in making contact should be avoided. Make contact with electrode quickly when beginning and finishing treatment. If metal object like hairpins, corset steels, chains, etc., cannot be avoided in the treatments they should be removed.



USE YOUR RAY AS A FIRST AID, spider bites, a fall, sprained ankle ect


   There is no quackery or uncertainty about the High-Frequency Current. It is a thorough cell massage, and a wonderful stimulant, and while it is by no means put forward as a cure-all, yet it is of the utmost aid in restoring to normal the physical condition impaired from almost any cause. The results obtained are universally beneficial and can never in any instance be harmful.


The following are suggestions for the treatment of disease taken from cases where physicians or clinics have obtained excellent results. Not all cases will be cured through High-Frequency alone, but in every case it is a valuable adjunct to other treatment; in fact, many cases have been greatly benefitted where medical treatment has failed.

Alopecia or Falling Hair – Use Comb electrode No. 3. Use a mild current at first, which can be increased with treatments. Pass the comb back and forth over the entire scalp for about five minutes every day. This same treatment can be used for gray hair in restoring it to natural color. Use same treatment for baldness. Do not use the Ray on the hair immediately after applying any preparation containing more than forty percent of alcohol.

Warts and Other Small Growths – The Fulguration electrode should be used, as it throws a fine sharp spark. Apply to growths long enough to cauterize the surface. A few seconds is usually all that is necessary. Wait a day or two for results and, if necessary, repeat. Where there is no Fulguration electrode the Surface electrode can be used by holding it about one-eighth inch from the growth and allowing the sparks to pass from the edge of the glass.
