Chinese medicine is focus on treating root problems, not just symptoms. We all know that four traditional Chinese medicine diagnostic techniques are 望聞問切 , which are inspection, auscultation/olfaction, inquiry, and palpation. Those diagnostic techniques require years to master, especially for palpation is very hard to distinguish the patterns if you just learn by books. Is there any testing tool to assist the diagnosis which could provide objective numbers? The answer is yes. Meridian analysis device use a non-invasive health examination to measure the energy of the 24 meridian points of the human body within five minutes, then the practitioners can do further analysis based on those readings. The device can visualized patient’s Meridian status and make diagnostic more objective. I call it Makes a Tiger With a Pair of Wings.
Let’s use a case study to show how it helps. A male patient came here complain about lacking of energy, especially around 5pm to 7pm feels very tired, it lasted for a while. Without the meridian analysis device, the first thought came to my mind is the problem should be kidney meridian problem, as 5pm to 7pm is typical kidney meridian time of day. After using Meridian Analysis Device to check, here’s the chart
As shown above the patient currently body energy is low, and from the chart/diagram obviously problem came from liver and gallbladder meridians.
After needle right 太冲(LR3) and left 光明(GB37) with tonifying method for 35 minutes, here’s the new chart
Energy number jump from 21.4 to 72.7 , and balance from 62.3 to 73.9 , what a big change! Liver and gallbladder meridians energy also up a lot.
Does the better reading really mean improvement? The answer is YES. This patient came to me one month later for other issue(shoulder pain) and I asked him about his energy issue, he replied after that treatment the problem gone. He feels good.
Meridian Analysis Device Makes a Tiger With a Pair of Wings, we use it at our Brampton clinic daily. I strongly recommend other Acupuncturists add this device to their practice.
