Acupuncture (EMI) information:
Electronic Meridian Imaging
Computer-assisted meridian imaging allows us to view in real-time the flow of energy through the acupuncture meridians in your body. This information is critical in developing precise acupuncture prescriptions. Electro Meridian Imaging is a powerful and effective, evaluation, diagnostic and treatment tool designed to assess the function of the organ systems and the acupuncture meridian systems of the body. We can now more clearly, accurately and efficiently diagnose imbalances in organ and meridian function and perform treatment to bring the body into balance and healing then ever before.
In 1951 Dr.Yoshio Nakatani M.D., Ph.D developed a procedure of electronic evaluation of the acupuncture meridian system by developing a simple device to measure skin conductance at specific points at the wrists and ankles. Dr. Nakatani named this new method "Ryodoraku". It was later computerized and presently called Electro-Meridian Imaging (EMI) in the US.
