Electrodermal Screening measures the conductance of electricity through specific acupuncture points located on the hands and feet. EDS uses a computer program and instrumentation to collect information about the functional and energetic status of the patient. This process is non-invasive and highly accurate in identifying the various causes of imbalance in the body.
Screening sessions last about 30-60 min for all the to be points measured. Skin measurement is obtained using a small brass instrument. A minimal amount of current is applied to areas of high electrical conductivity known as acupuncture points. Recordings are taken that measure response of the point measured to this microcurrent. The current (1.25 volts) is too small to be detected by the skin, so the patient feels nothing.
A drop in current flow indicates a resistance to electrical conductance at that point. Each acupuncture point is known to perform a specific job. Screening what is happening with the energy of the point gives the doctor information about the internal function of the patient. This information suggests appropriate remedies or strategies for patient care.
EDS is also used to identify potential allergies and create energetic remedies to desensitize the patient’s allergic response.
