There is a way to measure the 12 Meridians (of Traditional Chinese Medicine) that is quick and accurate and provides a snapshot of the functioning of all organs and body systems.
Using a computerised tool called Acugraph® a test is completed of the twenty-four meridian points on the hands and feet and a series of graphs and information relating to imbalances in the meridians is produced. This test was developed from the earlier work of Dr Nakatani who pioneered Ryodoraku Meridian therapy in Japan between the 1940’s – 1970’s.
Ryodoraku Meridian Therapy is a meridian analysis technique. It’s like taking a step beyond the clinical picture (the symptoms and signs of ill- health) and analysing the energy pathways in the body (meridians) and the autonomic nervous system that governs the state of wellness of the body.
Bringing ancient Chinese acupuncture into the 21st century, Ryodoraku Meridian Therapy is a form of whole body assessment. It traces imbalances within the meridian pathways and once located, enables treatment of those out of balance points with low level laser stimulation rather than the traditional needle.
This provides the body with a more balanced energy field and autonomic nervous system which in turn enhances immune system and healing.
How does it work? The system uses a computerised tool to analyse and document the energetic status of the acupuncture meridians. This is done by touching a moistened probe to acupuncture points on your hands and feet. The examination takes only a few minutes and is non-invasive. The computer software then displays a range of graphs showing those meridians that are in balance or else imbalanced. Any imbalances will correlate to your health issues. This information then guides the healthcare practitioner to make better-informed decisions about your condition and how to provide the best treatment.
