Acupuncture, simply stated, is health science which is used to successfully treat both pain and dysfunction in the body.
Early Chinese physicians discovered there is an energy network traversing just below the surface of the skin which communicates from the exterior to the internal organs and structures at over 1,000 “Acupoints” on the body. This energy works in harmony with the body’s circulatory, nervous, muscular, digestive, genitourinary and all other systems of the body. When this vital energy becomes blocked or weakened, an effect in the body system or anatomic location becomes evident. Simulation of one or a combination of key “Acupoints”, on the body may restore harmony to the affected area.
Dr. Ratio utilizes a cutting edge tool called Acugraph to assess imbalances in the body’s energy system. This quick, pain-free procedure can provide an analysis and documentation of energy levels of the acupuncture meridians. Acugraph helps to identifying the energetic imbalance of these meridians which contribute to negative health conditions and also helps us to provide the most effective treatment for our patients.
