AcugraphⓇ -- "Evidence-based Acupuncture"
Acupuncture is the ancient science, or art, that normalizes the energy (qi, pronounced "chee") within the body. It has been used in China for over 5,000 years. The Chinese teach that there are fourteen meridians of energy that run throughout the body. These meridians coordinate with the body's major organs; the heart, spleen, liver, large intestines, small intestines, gall bladder, bladder, kidney, stomach, etc.
The Chinese believe that when there is an imbalance in the energy within the meridians, the organs associated with that meridian will soon become diseases. The AcugraphⓇ system allows your practitioner to measure and analyze the energy level of each acupuncture meridian. Armed with this information, your healthcare practitioner can make better informed decisions about your condition, and determine the best possible treatment to restore balance to this energy system.
