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.

How can AcuGraph help you?

The AcuGraph Digital Meridian Imaging system allows your practitioner to measure and analyze the energetic level of each acupuncture meridian. Armed with this information your practitioner is better able to make an informed decision about your overall health condition, as well as provide the best treatment possible.

What does your P.I.E. score mean?

Within the P.I.E. (Personal Integrated Energetics) chart, each wedge of the circle represents one meridian pathway. Those shown in green are balanced and functioning properly. Colors that do not extend out to the edge are shown in colors other than green and represent those meridians that are imbalanced in nature.

Your P.I.E. score includes a complete analysis of all your meridians. A perfect score of 100 equals complete balance, while lower scores indicate various imbalances, which you and your practitioner should address together.

What should you expect from an AcuGraph exam?

The exam itself is brief and comfortable. You’ll start by removing your shoes and socks and then will lie down on an exam table, which then your practitioner will begin to measure specific acupuncture points located on your hands and feet. During the exam you will hear a computerized tone as each acupuncture point is measured, this indicates that the exam is progressing properly. After the exam is completed your practitioner will then go over the results with you. The entire exam itself takes about 5 minutes to complete.

What will you learn from the Acugraph exam?

Your AcuGraph exam will show where the balance or lack there of, is in your body. The information this exam provides is key to understanding your overall current state of health as well as issues and can also potentially indicate future health issues that are not yet present. Your practitioner will help you understand the exam and its results, as the information relates to you and your current condition.

Is AcuGraph safe?

AcuGraph uses a tiny electric current, 1/100 the normal current running naturally within the body, in order to test the conductivity of each acupuncture meridian. This electrical current is extremely safe for infants, children, adults, and the elderly. In fact, the only safety concern at all is when there is a pacemaker or other implanted electronic medical device present. In which case, an AcuGraph exam is not performed as an extra precaution.

If I have imbalances does that mean that I'm sick?

No, not necessarily, it only means that there is an imbalance. According to acupuncture theory, imbalances within meridians if left untreated will lead to health problems or can cause current ones to worsen. This is why it's important to locate and correct imbalances before they become more severe.
