What is Electrodermal screening?
It is a computer-based system of examining the body for inflammation or deficiency. It really amounts to a physical from a Chinese point of view. Using Chinese acupuncture points known and recognized for thousands of years, energy levels are measured and recorded as they relate to various organs and organ systems. These readings will relay the information from the body of either balance, inflammation, or deficiency. Then if needed, an appropriate nutritional and/or lymphatic program can be outlined to help restore the body back to balance.
As its name implies, a very small amount of electricity is put into the body by the client’s holding of a small metal rod. This energizes the acupuncture points and makes them easier o read. This amount is so very small that there is no discomfort whatsoever. Then a small, flat-tipped probe is used to read the corresponding acupuncture point. At no time are needles used in electrodermal screening. The skin is never pierced or punctured. Specific points are used on the hands and feet which means that, aside from removing your shoes and socks, you remain dressed during the screening. However, it is vital that you NOT wear any hand cream or lotion during your appointment!
The history of electrodermal screening goes back to the mid-1900s. Dr. Reinhold Voll, of Germany, began a study of the effectiveness of acupuncture and its principles. In this attempt to find out just what happens at all those little acupuncture points, he invented the forerunner to the computerized electrodermal screening devices we have and use today.
Now, it is possible to look for specific deficiency in vitamins and minerals, build up the immune system, and specifically see how best to detox your body to create a balance between the organs and glands of the body. The precise, reproducible results can finally help end the seemingly endless guesswork needed to get results in the other modalities. The cost for the screening is $200.00 for the first session and $100.00 for all retesting. First-time clients are encouraged to arrive 30 minutes early to fill out the questionnaire, have us send it to you via email or post, or stop in prior to the appointment and get the form to fill out at home. It will be preferable if you bring ALL supplements or prescriptions you are currently taking, not a list. DO NOT WEAR COLOGNE, PERFUME OR AFTERSHAVE. Do not wear ANY lotion or hand cream on the day of your appointment. Supplements or lymphatic therapy will be charged in addition to the test.
