Innovative Measurement of Physiological Function


In 1998, Nancy Rizzo began studying and analyzing Kirlian Photography, a precursor imaging technology to the EPIC systems.  She began work on doctoral studies in 1999 focusing on this technology and in 2002, completed her  dissertation, “Parallel Investigation of The Meridian Stress Assessment (MSA-21) and the Gas Discharge Visualization Devices: Can They Measure the Effects of Acupuncture Treatment on the Body’s Energy State?”  Since then she has expanded her research interests into the fields of electrophysiology, electromagnetic theory, and biophotonics, as well as acupuncture and cellular physiology/communication. 





Ms. Rizzo earned a B.S. Degree in Medical Physics from Oakland University in Rochester, MI, and a M.S. degree in Biophysics from Wayne State University, Detroit, MI.  Additionally, she earned the Diplomat of the American Board of Radiology (DABR) honor in 1997.  To pursue her passion for biophysics and energy medicine, she completed additional post graduate studies and research, under the guidance of Drs. Norm Shealy and William Tiller, acknowledged experts in holistic medicine and biophysics.  Ms. Rizzo has 29 years of combined experience as a radiological therapeutic physicist and a biophysicist specializing in biophotonic technology and energy medicine.  She has held clinical positions at prestigious medical centers, including the University of Michigan, Royal Oak Beaumont, and Mayo Clinic – Scottsdale.  In 2006, she founded EPIC Research and Diagnostics and has focused on research and development of the company’s technology, which will soon be ready for commercialization.
