Tonification Squared 5/5 (26)

Today I’d like to address a question I’m often asked about the appropriate way to needle the acupuncture points that are suggested by the AcuGraph system. If you don’t use needles in your practice, this information is equally applicable to laser, electricity, or whatever treatment modality you use. The question usually is phrased something like this: “How do I know which points to tonify and which points to sedate?” or “I understand that I should... Read more

Losing it All 5/5 (21)

This week I’m writing from a foreign country. Or at least it feels that way. I’m writing from a foreign computer, which is like a whole different world. I feel completely displaced, somewhat ignorant, and definitely alien. I probably deserve this exile, but I’m glad to know it’s only temporary. You see, I’ve written and spoken literally for years about the need for secure backup of computer records. I’ve continually offered our customers pearls of... Read more

A Sense of Proportion 5/5 (23)

Question: What’s the difference between the two graphs below? The answer may be a little more complicated than it first appears. As you can see, both of these graphs have exactly the same values for every meridian. In fact, both of these graphs were produced from the same exam. But one shows all meridians in the normal range, and the other shows a deficient Small Intestine and a split Large Intestine. What gives? The answer... Read more

How Much? How Often? 5/5 (23)

Today’s blog entry is really more of a mini-survey. Let me explain. As professionals, we all tend to gauge our equipment investments based on the potential return on those investment. We buy new equipment, take training courses, select our office location and furnishings, and pretty much make most business decisions based on the bottom line. And this is as it should be. Can I make more money if I do, or learn, or purchase the... Read more

The AcuGraph PIE Score: how do you explain it? 5/5 (22)

First of all, thanks to all of you who responded and commented on my last post. I really appreciate your input and the lively conversation. This is exactly what I wanted to see. For today’s post, I’m using a question posed by Dr. Jerry Nesseler: “How can I quickly explain the new graph/pie chart on the updated Acugraph?” Here’s a bit of background. The chart he’s referring to is our patent-pending P.I.E. (personal integrated energetics)... Read more

TCM, AcuGraph and Herbs 5/5 (22)

We get lots of questions about TCM interpretations of AcuGraph results. TCM practitioners are sometimes confused about how to interpret graph findings that don’t *seem* to agree with their TCM training. One common example is Spleen Excess. What do you do when you see an excessive reading for the Spleen meridian in a graph, though TCM teaches the spleen can’t be in excess? What does it mean? Well, in this case, dampness is usually the... Read more

Hello world! 5/5 (21)

I’ve resisted as long as I can. It’s time to give in and start a blog. There are way too many interesting things to discuss, and not nearly enough room in our sort-of-monthly newsletters to discuss them. So I’m going to write a brief, and hopefully interesting blog post every week. Most of all, I want to hear from you–and the blog format is excellent for comments and interaction. So here goes! Please read, enjoy,... Read more
