The AcuGraph Digital Meridian Imaging system is a computerized tool used to analyze and document the energetic status of the acupuncture meridians. We will use the system in a short examination by touching a moistened probe to acupuncture points on your hands and feet.
Acupuncture meridians are energy pathways in your body that have been used therapeutically for over 5000 years. These meridians conduct life-force energy, or Qi (pronounced “chee”) in and around all the parts of your body. Blockage or interference in these meridian pathways can result in energetic imbalances that may contribute to negative health conditions. The primary goal of acupuncture treatment is to restore energetic balance and proper energy flow to these meridians, thus allowing your body to function normally and return to health naturally.
The AcuGraph system allows us to measure and analyze the energy level of each acupuncture meridian. Armed with this information, we can make better-informed decisions about your condition, and provide the best treatment possible.
The exam itself is brief and comfortable. You will need to remove your shoes and socks, and sit or lie comfortably during the exam. You will hold a metal bar in one hand, and I will touch a probe lightly to your skin in various spots on your hands and feet. During the exam, you will hear the computer produce tones that mean the exam is progressing properly. The entire exam takes about 2 minutes.
