Step 1 of Needleless Acupuncture/The Analysis
Here’s How the AcuGraph Works:
- The Acugraph is a computer system that guides me through a simple assessment of your meridians. We test the "source points" on the wrists and feet. The source points are the most active points on the meridian which correlate to the 12 meridians of the body. The test only takes a few minutes. The procedure is completely pain free and consists of a small moist cotton probe that’s used to collect the electrical readings from the source points.
As soon as the assessment is finished the results will display on the screen. The graphs are visual representations that are easy to understand, and will display deficiencies, as well as excesses found in your meridians; and will also show any imbalances that need to be included in the your treatment. The analysis also shows imbalances between the upper and lower part of your body as well as the left and right sides of the body. The analysis will show which acupuncture points and auricular points (ear points) are indicated. The test also shows which spinal vertebral levels may be misaligned.
Step 2 of Needle-Less Acupuncture / The Treatment
Now that we’ve collected our data, and analyzed the results, the exam is complete. It’s now time for treatment.
Modern acupuncture incorporates the use of lasers (known as laser needle) and electrical stimulation of the acupuncture points instead of needles. Traditional Chinese theory explains acupuncture as a technique for balancing the flow of energy or life force — known as qi or chi (chee) — believed to flow through pathways (meridians) in your body.
