With the updated Ryodoraku concept as the basis, representative acupoints of the twelve primary meridians were measured to determine changes in the respective meridians and their associated effects with one another, as well as on the body as a whole.
Combining Chinese, Japanese and German medical technology with sixteen years of continual research and clinical evaluations, M.E.A.D. provides informative analytic information on physical energetics, mental and emotional states, autonomic nervous system, endocrine function, metabolic function, interpenetration of yin-yang, and harmony of qi and blood.
This detailed analysis complements our other methodologies to help assure that we are helping you along the path to healing and wholeness.
Back Ground – The Ryodoraku Concept
In 1949, a research group headed by Dr. Nakatani of the Kyoto University and the dean of its biology department found that abnormalities or diseases of the viscera are reflected in measurable changes of bio-electric current. This study concluded that disease was related to variable flux in the bio-electric currents of the twelve primary meridians and to points called source points or yuan points, corroborating with the traditional Chinese meridian theory. In 1957, after further study with source points and bio-electric currents the now famous Ryodoraku theory was published.
This marked the first time the so-called meridian phenomenon was sampled in a large- scale, long-term clinical research and validated by means of biology, anatomy, electrology, and modern medical techniques. Particularly notable is that the results from the study were systematically analyzed and verified by modern medical practitioners and clinically compared and contrasted with Traditional Chinese Medical concepts of the body. This synergistic approach allows for a refreshing perspective on Traditional Chinese Medicine as opposed to the more common empirical based approach where bias often exist.
Initially intrigued, the Western medical community now embraces Ryodoraku as the concept of electrical properties of the meridians is more widely understood. For the past half decade, Ryodoraku application has formed a trend in Chinese Medicine and Western Medicine. An increasing number of medical institutions all over the world are taking part in studies involving Ryodoraku theory, and are sharing findings with one another to expand informative protocols and to increase awareness of what we believe to be a scientific breakthrough.
The Ryodoraku concept was first introduced in Taiwan over 20 years ago by Mr. Fung-Jia Lai, an instructor at the Tokyo Ryodoraku Research Institute. To facilitate Ryodoraku application, Mr. Lai published a series of books. His contributions have benefited countless patients, leading to a series of clinical researches and applications, most notably by General Veterans Hospital and China Medical University.
