ELECTRO MERIDIAN IMAGING (EMI)


In 1951, Dr. Yoshio Nakatiani, MD, PhD. developed a method of examining the meridian system of the body through electronic measurements that altered the way acupuncture would be practiced thoughout Japan, Europe, Australia and North America. Dr. Nakatani called this method Ryodoraku: Ryo (good), do (electro-conductive), raku(meridian). After electronically measuring the meridians, the results were manually calculated using a staggered numbering system for graphing. His pioneering research and development of Ryodoraku would become international within 25 years of it's discovery.

The method of Ryodoraku was refined and renamed Electro Meridian Imaging or EMI by Dr. John Amaro in 1982. Dr. Amaro is the founder and primary teacher of the International Academy of Medical Acupuncture of which Dr. Greenapple is a graduate Fellow. This system has revolutionized the way acupuncture is practiced by both medical practioners and traditionally trained acupuncturists worldwide. It is a perfect example of blending old world knowledge with new world technology and produced a repeatable, accurate and rapid graph of a patients meridian system. what used to be a lengthy and varied diagnosis is now executed in just a few minutes.

How it Works Today The key to successful acupuncture treatment is the ability to diagnose the imbalance which is causing the condition. Prior to the evolution of the EMI, this was acomplished by feeling the pulse and looking at the tongue. This was highly subjective, depending upon each doctor. With the computerization of the EMI, we can now accurately and easily locate the imbalance and incredibly, pinpoint the exact acupuncture points to stimulate. It is quick and inexpensive.
