Here at Better Living Wellness Clinic and Health Store in Toronto (Etobicoke), we are excited to offer our clients a non-invasive and comprehensive computerized health assessment – Biomeridian testing also known as Meridian Stress Assessment (MSA) as well as Biofeedback – Stress Reduction Therapy (SRT).
What is Meridian Stress Assessment (MSA)?
MSA Meridian Stress Assessment involves testing 58 different acupuncture points on both hands and feet and assessing the status of body’s meridians and related organs, systems and functions. Similar to an EKG or EEG, this system is an OHM meter as well as a class 11a medical device that measures a galvanic skin response when a safe current is applied to acupuncture points. The measurements obtained this way are both objective and reliable and pinpoint the organs and organ systems that are either balanced, stressed, or weakened.
Biorep chart obtained after the AcuPoint readings are taken, gives a complete analysis of 14 organs and systems in the body.
Homeopathic remedies, nutritional supplements and other natural remedies may be used to bring abnormal electrical patterns into equilibrium.
What is Stress Reduction Therapy – SRT (Biofeedback)?
SRT – Stress Reduction Therapy is a remarkable procedure that combines the disciplines of Acupuncture, Biofeedback and Homeopathy with Laser Light technology.
There are over 50,000 digital signatures of various substances stored in the system that could be potential stressors. An automated scan provides the information about what the body is sensitive to, and what is throwing it out of balance. The second step of the process is desensitizing the body to these stressors and re-establishing balance.
Stress Reduction Therapy balances the body’s response to different stressors so that future exposure to these substances does not create a stress response and corresponding symptoms.
There are different types of stressor that could be affecting you on biological, chemical, emotional, physical level. SRT can test the following:
- Organ systems
- Heavy metals
- Bacteria, viruses, yeast/fungus/mold, parasites
- Nutritional deficiencies – minerals, vitamins, fatty acids, amino acids
- Supplement testing
- Food sensitivities
Who can benefit from this type of testing?
MSA and SRT testing can help with a variety of conditions including but not limited to:
- Weight gain
- Memory loss
- Hormonal imbalances
- Digestive issues
- And many more…
Both MSA and SRT can measure subclinical imbalances that, if left unaddressed, can lead to a diseased state. These assessment tools allow us to balance the body and prevent the development of the disease in the first place.
On the day of the appointment:
- Drink plenty of water to remain hydrate
- Eat lightly before the appointment
- Do NOT wear pantyhose, lotions, colognes and perfumes
- Bring all supplements and medication you are taking to the appointment
- Wear a light T-shirt under your clothes for an SRT session
- Before booking your appointment let us know if you have a pacemaker or experience seizures or if you are pregnant
At the Appointment:
Our Certified Nutritional Practitioner, Aleksandra Morgan, will take the readings by either applying pressure with a probe to specific acupuncture points or attaching electrodes to two of your fingers and taking automated readings. The reading is stored in the computer system and it is correlated with a large database which will help provide a guideline for a personalized protocol including homeopathic remedies, nutritional supplements, dietary and lifestyle recommendations or other modalities to restore balance.
This technology comes from Germany where integrative medicine practitioners have been using similar procedures for over 50 years. In the 1950’s, Dr. Voll, a German physician discovered that focused electrical energy can be measured at acupuncture points. Dr. Voll then developed a device that could measure the impedance of electrical charge in the meridian when placed on specific acupuncture points. Over years, the device became more sophisticated and now contains over 50,000 remedies and their digital energetic signals that the computer chooses from based on the information gathered during the testing process, thus ensuring the most compatible options for an individual.
