Determine Your Overall Health & Wellness
The BioImpedance Analysis or BIA measures your percentage of body fat, active tissue (muscle) and water compartments. This information can be used to determine if your body has a greater than optimal toxic burden, an optimal fat percentage and muscle mass. These are all markers of overall health and fitness.
How it Works
BIA is a much more sophisticated than your bathroom scale, but just as painless and almost as quick. BIA is a simple procedure performed in our clinic in a matter of minutes with the help of a sophisticated computerized analysis. Measurements are taken with the bioimpedance analyzer, which uses electrodes similar to EKG electrodes. The Analyzer calculates your tissue and fluid compartments using an imperceptible electrical current passed through pads placed on one hand and foot as you lie comfortably on a treatment couch or table. Lean tissue, which is over 70% water, is a good conductor of electrical current. Fatty tissue, which is low in water, is not. Thus, the resistance to the flow of electrical current measured by the analyzer can be used to calculate the body composition.
