Electrodermal Screening (EDS)

Electrodermal Screening (EDS)Electrodermal Screening is used to screen all the systems, organs and functions of the body.

Electrodermal Screening is a superior and highly innovative computerized instrumentation that measures the energetic aspects of the body using the nervous system through the electro-acupuncture points. It is a non-invasive energetic evaluation using a galvanometer that measures the skin resistance and electrical potential on electro-acupuncture points.

The body is an electrical system with all 50 trillion plus cells governed largely by electrical differences occurring between individual cells and our external environment.

Modern biophysics has shown that cells resonate at certain frequencies and have radio-like transmitting and receiving properties that allow cells to inter-communicate and control biological and chemical systems in the body.

As healthy harmonic cells resonate at a very different frequency to that of unhealthy cells, this specialized non-invasive form of electrical resonance testing known as electrodermal screening is used to identify possible cellular imbalances or stressors that may be affecting the body’s electrical system.


Electrodermal testing has been used successfully in Europe since 1953, originating with the German Electro-Acupuncture technique as developed by Dr. Reinhold Voll (a German physician, acupuncturist and engineer). Dr. Voll established a clear connection between electro-acupuncture points and internal organs, functions and processes.

The procedure involves measuring potential differences (voltage) between a tip electrode held against an electro-acupuncture point and a large surface electrode (hand electrode) held by the patient. The resultant resistance is then measured. The EDS technique is founded on the theory of acupuncture. EDS has shown that acupuncture points bear a direct relationship to a specific anatomical structure or physiological function of the body. The doctors at this clinic will use the classical EDS testing with new computer technology.
