Traditional Chinese acupuncture has a history of at least 5,000 years. The theoretical construct of this form of health care rests on the idea that a universal energy form, known as chi or qi (pronounced "chee") flows in specific channels throughout the body. These channels are known as acupuncture meridians. According to acupuncture theory, all ill health, disease, pathology, etc. are caused by energetic imbalances among these 12 meridians, causing excesses or deficiencies of energy in specific channels.
Each meridian is measured with AcuGraph's computerized measurement probe, taking less than two minutes. AcuGraph® instantly provides complete graphical analysis and interpretation of your meridian energetics, including; 5-elements, horary, and a complete symptom list based off any imbalances. The Personal Integrated Energetics (P.I.E.) score boils the results down to a single number that is easy to understand. You will be able to "See the Chi"! The most effective acupuncture points are treated based on AcuGraph®'s intelligent analysis. The results can then be compared and tracked by subsequent AcuGraph® examinations.
