Meridian Stress Assessment
Discover how the advanced technology of Meridian Stress Assessment can benefit you!
Meridian Stress Assessment (MSA) follows the principles of Chinese Medicine and measures electrical points on the body and can help you to determine whether the corresponding organ is stressed, healthy or weakened, according to the philosophies of Traditional Chinese Medicine. Sometimes MSA is referred to as Electrodermal Screening or Computerized Electrodermal Screening (EDS for short).
Most physical examinations assess what is happening on the outside of the body. MSA can allow you to assess what is happening on the inside of your body, specifically your organs, and how nutritional supplements and herbal or homeopathic remedies affect that organ system.
We provide MSA services and reports to the general public as well as to individuals that are referred to us by their medical practitioner in the Greater Toronto Area and surrounding regions. If you currently have a medical practitioner and wish to obtain a Meridian Stress Assessment report, please have your practitioner contact Inspired Life Health Centre to set up your appointment. If you would like to schedule an appointment with Inspired Life Health Centre directly, please contact us and we will be glad to assist.
Detailed full colour reports are provided after each assessment.
If you are not currently seeking advice from a medical practitioner, Inspired Life Health Centre can provide you with the contact information of a medical practitioner within your local area.
MSA testing allows you to see which systems have a low energy and which ones are under stress in order that you may act now to prevent weaknesses from developing to disease. That is the true definition of preventative medicine!
Frequently Asked Questions
Who benefits from testing?
MSA testing is for everyone. It is non-invasive, virtually painless and safe for people of all ages. Whether you are looking to improve a pre-existing condition through natural means or wanting to take a proactive approach to your health, Meridian Stress Assessment testing is for you.
What can be tested?
The three main components of MSA testing are organ balancing, allergy (or sensitivity) testing and the efficacy of nutritional products, but the possibilities are endless.
Why is MSA testing important?
Disease states are present in the body’s electromagnetic field long before they manifest into disease. For example, you may have the common cold virus energetically present in your system but NOT present any common cold symptoms. It will likely not appear or manifest into a cold until your immune system is weakened.
Does Meridian Stress Assessment testing hurt?
No. Meridian Stress Assessment is a pain free and non-invasive screening technique where you hold a brass rod in one hand while the MSA technician touches the tip of a brass probe on specific points on your other hand or foot.
How Does Meridian Stress Assessment differ from a traditional allergy scratch test?
The allergy scratch test is done on the skin to identify if a substance causes the body to trigger an allergic response. The scratch test is achieved by placing a small amount of the suspect substance on the skin and then the skin is scratched with a special needle which breaks the skin. If the skin displays any redness or swelling the test is read as positive for a presence of an allergic reaction to the suspect substance.
With Meridian Stress Assessment, there is no ‘scratching’ or breaking of any skin or membrane. You simply hold a brass rod in one hand while the MSA Technician touches the tip of a brass probe on specific points on your hand or foot. The MSA device actually measures the skin’s resistance to the small minute amount of electrical signal passing through the probes. Based on Chinese Medicine, MSA is measuring whether or not the electrical flow within your meridians is balanced or out of balance.
Can the Meridian Stress Assessment device cure disease?
The MSA device we use is not a diagnostic or treatment device. The purpose of the system is to measure the skin’s resistance to a small minute amount of electrical signal along various points on the body (primarily hands and feet). The device does not make a medical diagnosis nor does it replace necessary medical intervention.
