Commonly used in ancient Chinese medicine, acupuncture is the insertion of thin sterilized needles at certain points of the body to restore energy flow and re-balance the body. Also used to stimulate nerves, muscles and connective tissue which stimulates the body’s natural healing system. Acupuncture is commonly used to treat pain, illness in area, anxiety, stress, fertility issues, and whole body discomfort.
What is AcuGraph?
AcuGraph is a Digital Meridian Imaging System that allows a practitioner to measure and analyze energetic statuses of acupuncture meridians in a simple painless 5 minute test.
What are acupuncture meridians?
Acupuncture meridians are energetic pathways that travel throughout the body. These meridians conduct life-force energy or Qi (pronounced “chee”) throughout your body. When a blockage occurs in the flow of these meridian pathways, energetic imbalances are the result and this is what contributes to negative health conditions. The primary goal of acupuncture treatment is to restore balance in these meridians and thus allow your body to function normally again and return to a natural state of health.
What will you learn from the AcuGraph exam?
Since each meridian is associated with a specific organ system, this gives us a clear indication of the current state of function (health) of each of the major organs; Heart, Liver, Lungs, Kidneys, Large Intestine, Stomach, Gall Bladder, Urinary Bladder and Spleen. Imagine one test that not only tells you how all your organs are functioning, but also tells you how each organ affects the others!
