Try to avoid applying lotion or oils on your hands or feet the day of your appointment. Hydration is very important so drink plenty of water during the few days before coming.

Electrodermal Analysis (EDA) is known by other names such as Meridian Stress Assessment (MSA) or Electro-Acupuncture According to Voll (EAV). The principles of the therapy are the same regardless of the name that is being used to discuss the treatment. Dr. Reinhold Voll, a medical doctor born in 1909 in Germany, found it was possible to measure with a micro-ohm meter the electrical energy present at various locations of the body. By the mid-1950s Dr. Voll had dedicated his entire practice of medicine and research to the use of what he called Electro-acupuncture. By the 1970s electro-acupuncture was in use around the world as an independent therapy for evaluating and treating patients.
Dr. William Tiller, a professor from Stanford University, along with other scientists, continued to do research and publish several studies demonstrating a high degree of reproducibility as well as a positive correlation to other testing modalities. Today the testing instrument is registered through the FDA as a skin conductance meter for biofeedback assessments.
The therapy is performed by introducing a small current (micro-amps) through the body at various acupuncture meridian points, generally on the hands and feet. Information picked up by the meter is then analyzed by a computer and a report is generated. Once problems are identified, potential therapeutic options are examined. This is done by placing supplements or remedies within the patient’s electrical field and observing which items returned the Meridian to a balanced state.
More than 70% of patients in any general practice suffer from functional disturbances that cannot be identified by conventional lab work or other diagnostic tests. Functional disturbances occur when the living organism can no longer adequately compensate for changes in the environment. Environmental changes include both internal conditions of the body and external circumstances.
Ideally, it would make sense to find a disturbance early on in order to reverse the process before tissue damage can occur. Functional diagnostic tools are among the most important but are often overlooked for their potential in finding problems at an early stage. A report published by the National Institutes of Health stated:
“In clinical practice Bio-energetic Medicine offers the possibility of more economical and more effective diagnosis and non-invasive therapies for medical problems including those considered infractible (violating the body) or recalcitrant (non-responsive) to conventional treatment.”
