Acugraph Digital Meridian Imaging Testing

Diagnostic testing is one way to assess the underlying pathology for each individual. At Medella Wellness we may recommend one or more of the following tests to help pinpoint the issues affecting your health.

We use the AcuGraph Digital Meridian Imaging system as an integrated approach to your healthcare. This computerized tool is a system that measures and analyses the electro-conductivity (or energy levels) of each of the acupuncture meridians.

Meridians are a network of energetic pathways that pass through the organs and tissues of the body. The Chinese call this energy Qi (pronounced chi).

A moistened probe attached to the AcuGraph software is used to touch acupuncture points on the hands and feet. The entire exam only takes about 2 minutes and all you need to do is remove your shoes and socks, hold a metal bar and sit comfortably during the exam. During the exam, you will hear the computer produce gradual tones that mean the exam is progressing properly. AcuGraph uses a tiny painless electric current to test the conductivity of each of your acupuncture meridians. This electrical current is extremely safe so anyone can take it even infants and the elderly, except the ones who have a pacemaker or other implanted medical device.

The AcuGraph exam will show the balance of energy in your acupuncture meridians. This balance or imbalance is an important key to understanding the state of your health and potential health issues. Armed with this information, we can make better-informed decisions about your condition, and provide the best treatment possible to assist in restoring health balance and improve wellbeing.


Blood Glucose Monitoring

Simple pinprick blood test via in clinic glucose level monitor.


Blood Pressure Test

A blood pressure test measures the pressure in your arteries as your heart pumps. Having a blood pressure test is a routine part of most appointments. Your blood pressure provides important information for your practitioner about your general health.


Food Intolerance Test

We offer a simple pinprick blood test through the ELISA method to identify elevated antibodies to 96 general foods. Nutritional Laboratory Services allergy testing will discover what you need to avoid in your diet to minimize symptoms from unnecessary inflammatory processes due to daily exposures.


Tongue, Pulse and Abdominal Diagnosis

Tongue, pulse and abdominal diagnosis are important diagnostic tools for a trained practitioner.

The shape, color, coating, and general texture of the tongue give clues about the overall energetic balance in the body. In addition to the pulse rate, we feel the quality of the pulse, not only over-all, but in specific positions on the wrist that relate to different aspects of the body. The abdomen is the center of the body, and assessing the tone, warmth, and balance of the abdomen is another way to understand what points and formulas can help.

I first started seeing Barry in 2014 with a chronic neck condition and resultant carpal tunnel syndrome as the result of an accident. After the first treatment that included remedial massage and moxibustion on my back and neck I was pain-free for the first time in many months. His approach is unlike anything I have experienced from any previous practitioner. I now visit him several times a year just to maintain my condition. I highly recommend him!

Six years ago I had a rash on my lower leg. My GP was treating it with medications that were making me feel ill and making no difference. I went to see Barry and he had the problem fixed within a week and I have had no problem with the leg ever since. I continue to see Barry every 2-3 months and he keeps me healthy. I travel up from Brisbane to see him.
