In traditional Chinese medicine theory, there are many pathways or channels of energy that run through your body.
These channels exist synergistically, each of them contributing to the health and vitality of the others.
In Chinese medicine, these channels are known as meridian pathways. And the sustaining energy or life force that runs through them is call Qi (Chee).
Each acupuncture pathway connects with muscles, tendons, bones, ligaments, and internal organs. All the meridians affect different parts of the body, but they are all connected to each other.
In this modern era, scientists have discovered that Qi is related to ATP, or bioelectricity. We have learned that acupuncture pathways are actually electrically conductive lines of fascia tissue that generate electrical currents throughout the body, connecting all systems together.
It’s because of the fascia system that we are able to treat acupuncture points along the pathway which then affects the body on multiple levels – muscles, tendons, bones, ligaments, internal organs, hormones, and emotions.
In our clinic, we use AcuGraph, a modern diagnostic tool which measures electrical skin resistance in the acupuncture pathways. This measurement gives us valuable information and allows us to SEE where your body is out of balance.
An imbalanced chart means that energy isn’t moving well through the meridians. Imbalances, if left untreated, lead to symptoms.
