Ancient wisdom meets cutting-edge technology:
Healthy Spines Chiropractic uses the AcuGraph (Digital Meridian Imaging) system as part of an integrated approach to your healthcare. The practitioner will give you more information about the role of AcuGraph in your care and why your practitioner has chosen to use this equipment.
What is Acugraph?
The AcuGraph Digital Meridian Imaging system is a computerized tool used to analyze and document the energetic, status of the acupuncture meridians. Your healthcare practitioner will use the system in a short examination by touching a moistened probe to acupuncture points on your hands and feet.
What are Acupuncture Meridians?
Acupuncture meridians are invisible energy pathways in your body that have been used therapeutically for over 5000 years. These meridians conduct life-force energy, or Qi(pronounced “chee”) in and around all the parts of your body. Blockage or interference in these meridian pathways can result in energetic imbalances that may contribute to negative health conditions. The primary goal of acupuncture treatment is to restore energetic balance and proper energy flow to these meridians, thus allowing your body to function normally and return to health naturally.
How can AcuGraph help me?
The AcuGraph system allows your practitioner to
measure and analyze the energy balance of each acupuncture meridian. Armed with this information, your healthcare practitioner can make better-informed decisions about your condition, and provide the best treatment possible
What Does my P.i.e. score mean?
Within the P.I.E (Personal Integrated Energetic) chart, each wedge of the circle represents one meridian pathway. Those shown in green are balanced and functioning properly. Colors that do not extend to the edge of the circle identify and classify your meridian energy imbalances. Your P.I.E score includes a complete analysis of all your meridian pathways and reflects the overall health of your meridian energy system. A perfect score of 100 reflects complete balance and unimpeded flow of your Qi energy. A lower score means there are various imbalances that your and your healthcare practitioner should address together.
