Meridian Stress Analysis (MSA)

The Meridian Stress Analysis, also known as Electro-Dermal Screening or BioMeridian Stress Analysis, is a non-invasive method of evaluating your body’s systems. It is used to conduct a comprehensive evaluation of a person’s energetic health and balance and provide the status of the organ systems. This usually indicates if you are stressed, balanced, or weakened and by what percentage.

The BioMeridian is based on the work of Dr. Reinhardt Voll (electro-acupuncture) and Dr. Rekeweg (homotoxicology). Its unique feature is that it integrated the work of these two pioneers into one functional assessment tool, which is registered as a class II medical device and listed with the FDA.

According to a European medical research conducted by Dr. Voll, acupuncture points are related to the body’s organs and their systems. Major groups of points are connected through channels or meridians, 13 of which begin or end on the hands and feet.


The Meridian Stress Analysis measures electrical conductivity at responsive or meridian points on the skin—typically on the hands and feet. The locations of these test points generally correspond to those of acupuncture points. 56 different acupoints are tested on both the hands and feet, which relates back to the energy levels and their associated organ systems.

This testing does not involve any needles, only pressure applied to each point. The electrical current measured on each point is recorded to support the profile of the patient’s present condition. These are then analyzed by the BioMeridian software. The patient should be prepared to sit for approximately an hour. We advise the use of comfortable clothing and no metals.

The sample graph above indicates the stages of Total Inflammation (100 to red) to Final Degeneration (0 to yellow). The red color represents the systems in the most stressed and weakened state. Meanwhile, the yellow color indicates degeneration and inflammation. Finally, the green color means that the system is functioning in an optimal state.

Who Would Benefit From the MSA?

Meridian Stress Testing would benefit anyone interested in improving the functional energetic status of his or her body systems. This applies to both well and compromised individuals. With this analysis, valuable information about the vital functions of your body is gained through a completely non-invasive method.

The primary objective of the procedure is to reveal the patterns of a person’s stress levels. This, in turn, provides feedback for the practitioner so that he or she may make recommendations to restore each system and meridian to an appropriate balance.

However, the MSA does not provide a medical diagnosis. If a client suspects that he or she needs conventional or traditional medical intervention, then a physician should be consulted immediately.

MSAS: A Powerful Technology

Everything has an electromagnetic frequency associated with it. All physical things are made up of a nucleus with atoms whizzing around it at high speeds. It is the rapid movement of an atom around a nucleus that creates the frequency specific to that item. This basic premise allows us to utilize the MSAS.
