 Meridian Evaluation 
The Meridian Stress Assessment (MSA) combines the traditions of Chinese Acupuncture with state of the art 21st century technology. After finding your particular area of weakness-stress, we can find the exact supplements and dosages needed to correct imbalances along your meridians. This translates directly into optimum health.

Meridian Stress Assessment  

A New Breakthrough in Full Body Scans


What if there was a diagnostic tool that a doctor could use which may assist in detecting the root causes of illness. Would you want to know about it? Would you want to try it? Well, there is such a tool and we have been using it at the Plateroti Center with great success for over 13 years. It can be used on patients of all ages and does not require any special preparation. Devices has FDA registration and CE approval.


Does it diagnose disease? No, it does not. That’s for our medical doctors at the Plateroti Center to diagnose.  Our  approach at the Plateroti Center using this medical breakthrough device is to find the causes of dysfunction in the body, tailor a custom program for each individual patient and to look for those functional factors that may be causing the dysfunction. 



Examples of tests performed at the Plateroti Center:



  • Hormonal evaluation (Test for Estrogen, Progesterone, Testosterone...)
  • Food sensitivity Analysis (Test for gluten, wheat, yeast, dairy...)
  • Neurotransmitter Profile (Test for Serotonin, GABA, Dopamine...)
  • Comprehensive analysis (Overall evaluation of all major organ systems ex. Liver, Kidneys, Stomach, Thyroid, Adrenals...)
  • Nutritional Assessment (Test supplements to make sure they are really working for you)
  • Environmental Sensitivity profile (Test for oaks, pines, pet dander etc.)
  • Metabolic Disturbances
  • Food sensitivity Analysis
  • Digestive Maladies
  • Emotional Stressors

Meridian Stress Assessment is a personalized test which can be used to assess your overall health/prevention and the results cannot be correlated with another person’s test results such as in western medicine. 


If we wanted to get an overall idea on the state of health from a medical perspective, we would order blood, saliva and/or urine tests to evaluate if the person may have diabetes, high cholesterol,etc.   


These types of tests can be correlated with others to determine which person is at higher risks for these conditions. 


Meridian Stress Assessment is a scientific advanced system that non-invasively gathers objective bioelectrical measurements or energy meridians, at points on the skin, associated with acupuncture points, targeting all major organs and organ systems within your body to formulate a comprehensive health status.



A computerized report will show in detail your organs and functioning organ systems, determining if they are stressed, balanced, or weakened, and by how much. A suggested homeopathic / nutritional protocol and counseling will be given. 


This test would benefit anyone interested in balancing the functional energetic status of his or her own bodies. This applies to those who are unwell and looking to improve their health as well as those who would like to optimize their state of health and possibly prevent future negative health issues.

This evaluation is a state-of-the-art Meridian Stress Assessment that measures 58 different electrical circuits in the body via hand the foot points which are related to specific organ and system function.  


It is safe, non-invasive, and painless and uses the same technology as EKG’s and EEG’s used to measure heart and brain function, respectively. Results illustrate which systems in the body are healthy, inflamed or stressed or degenerated and what nutrition will be needed to correct it. 


In standard medical testing, blood, urine and saliva tests provide biological data to diagnose disease. 


In energetic medicine, the energy flows within the body's acupuncture meridians which can also be measured. Since everything vibrates at its own particular frequency, these frequencies can be analyzed for their existence and potential impact to help improve the overall health of a patient. 


Meridian Stress Assessment will help to identify stressors and/or weakness in the body that may be a result of bacteria, viruses, parasites, molds and fungus, pesticides, herbicides, chemicals, heavy metals toxicity, radiation, nutritional deficiencies, hormonal imbalances, emotional imbalances, allergy testing, food sensitivities and environmental sensitivities. 


The 58 points are found on both hands and feet as shown in the images below.

The majority of these points are acupuncture points that relate to either the acupuncture meridians or organs systems that correlates with the acupuncture point.

The points are on both sides of the body, such as the lung point is on both the right and left hand.

Test results are color-coded in an easy-to-understand take-home report containing your practitioner's specific recommendations. With these reports, progress can be tracked easily, visit to visit.

Below is an example of an individual's first Bio-Meridian Assessment.
This sample chart showed a weakened uro-genital system...

Biorep - Before



3 different homeopathic remedies were recommended to support the functioning of the individual's kidneys and immune system. Notice the dramatic improvement in the second reading below after several weeks on the homeopathic remedies.


Ideally, all of our readings should be in the "green" zone.

So, what exactly is Meridian Stress Assessment (MSA)?

MSA simply uses an electronic device placed on acupuncture points to assess energy flow through the meridians of the body. MSA is called by various names such as EDS (Electro-dermal Screening), EAV (Electro-acupuncture according to Dr. Voll) and BIM (Bioelectrical Impedance Measurement)


Dr. Reinhold Voll, MD, Internist and acupuncturist in Germany in the 1940’s, noticed changes in electrical conductivity at each of the body’s acupuncture points. He discovered that higher or lower readings than “normal” at the particular acupuncture point indicates an imbalance of the energy flow. 

Higher readings indicate inflammation or irritation and lower readings indicate degeneration
or low energy flow. These imbalances can indicate the root causes of illnesses that are unexplainable by modern biochemistry-based medicine.

Based on Dr. Voll’s work, a new field of energy medicine was developed in Europe.


Voll Scale




Imagine your body is a fine musical instrument like a violin. A violin has four strings which must be finely tuned before you can play beautiful music. Imagine your body is a violin with 50 strings which must be finely tuned before your body can function in harmony.

Checking your Acupuncture meridians to detect imbalances of your energy flow is the equivalent of checking the tuning of the violin strings.

In this way, Meridian Stress Assessment can be used to understand many unexplainable symptoms, and detect chemical toxins, food allergies and pathologies in organ and glandular systems.



MSA screening can be used to determine various remedies and medications specific to the individual that will balance the disturbed meridians.


Today, MSA devices are widely used in Europe and Asia. In the United States, MSA is still unknown to most medical practitioners and the public.

We cannot imagine practicing medicine without an MSA device. To our center, not using an MSA device as a guiding tool would be like navigating an airplane without radar equipment or playing a violin without ever tuning the instrument.


Acupuncture and Energy Medicine are evolving very rapidly. Meridian Stress Assessment is leading the way into the future of medicine. When we can integrate all the above knowledge of ancient wisdom with modern science, there will be a quantum jump in the understanding of the causes of many unexplainable, chronic illnesses from chronic fatigue to environmentally induced illness.
