Graph Analysis #5: Triple Energizer Continued 5/5 (40)

As promised, I wanted to share with you the progress of my patient with the Triple Energizer nightmare. If you haven’t caught my last couple of blogs, here are the links which will bring you up to date on this difficult case study.

What the Heck is a Triple Energizer Anyway?

Graph Analysis #4: Triple Energizer

Here is a quick recap:

I have a patient who consistently has excess in the Triple Energizer channel. We are talking about months and months of chronic excess in this channel. I’ve tried using the sedation point, electrical stimulation, cupping, massage, TCM points, etc. Nothing seemed to be working. After some deeper study of the Triple Energizer channel from the book: Applied Channel Theory in Chinese Medicine by Dr. Wang Ju-Yi, I decided to try a new approach.

In my last blog, I showed you these two graphs:

Treatment #1:

This graph was typical for her. She has had either excess or a split with excess in the Triple Energizer channel for months.

Treatment: I balanced the graph, but added in a special combination focused toward clearing heat and moving qi and blood in the Triple Energizer channel.

  • TE 6 and GB 34
  • Ren 17
  • ST 25
  • CV 7

Treatment #2:

This graph was taken two days later. After one treatment, she had a nice shift. Notice how nice the TE channel looks. After balancing the graph, I repeated the above treatment.

  • TE 6 and GB 34
  • Ren 17
  • ST 25
  • CV 7

Are you ready to see what happened next? The results were unbelievable….

Treatment #3:

Isn’t this graph beautiful??? There isn’t much more to say, except that acupuncture is AMAZING! AcuGraph is an incredible tool which allowed me to analyze and document my patient’s progress. I was able to evaluate my previous treatment progress and realize that something wasn’t working.

What started out as an experimental treatment, turned into documented objective evidence that my new approach to treatment was working.  A big shift happened in this patient’s health. Not only did my patient ‘feel’ the changes, but an obvious change showed up on the graph as well. Who can argue with this type of documented evidence? I am ecstatic and my patient is thrilled.

  1. Gracias por compartir su experiencia. Que condiciones o características debe reunir un equipo laser para que el tratamiento sea eficaz?. Es suficiente aplicar solmente 15 a 20 segundos en cada punto?


    Thanks for sharing your experience. Conditions or characteristics that are needed by a laser device for treatment to be effective?. It is sufficient to apply only 15 to 20 seconds at each point?

    1. Muchos profesionales utilizan un láser. Usted puede tratar durante 10-15 segundos en el brazo y los puntos de las piernas. El uso de 30 segundos en los puntos del vientre.


      Many practitioners use a Laser. You can treat for 10-15 seconds on arm and legs points. Use 30 seconds on belly points.

  2. Gracias por compartir sus experiencias. Que características debe tener un equipo laser?. Es suficiente solamente 15 a 20 segundos por punto?


    Thanks for sharing your experiences. That the characteristics of a laser equipment?. Is sufficient only 15 to 20 seconds per point?

    1. Nuestros láseres son 635 nm. Esto es suficiente cuando los puntos están cerca de la superficie, tal como las manos, pies, las orejas. Cuando la carne es más densa, me gusta el punto del láser más largo.


      Our lasers are 635 nm. This is sufficient when points are close to the surface, such as the hands, feet, ears. When the flesh is more dense, I like to laser the point longer.

  3. Dear Kimberly,

    I would like to say that the information you have shared with all of us is very helpful and filled with wisdom and experience.

    Just by reading it you can tell you are not only an excellent acupunturist but also a kind and wonderfull person.

    Please keep up your good work. I would like if possible for you to give me your insight experience on a difficult case.

    How would you treat a 28 years old male patient who have been sufferning from cronic severe insomia for more than 4 years (usually goes to bed around 3 a.m. every day and sleeps until around 8 a.m. every day). He complains of having early morning diarrhea and stomage but has a normal apetite, feel usually tired with little energy, complains of having difficulty learning or concentrating for long periods of time (Still going to college after 6 years). He has a pale white-yellow iskin face coloration, drinks a lot of water daily.
    Normal body temperature, Normal blood presure, restlessness, some acid reflux, ansiety, some depression, and shows signs of obsesive hand washing behavior as well as anormal fear of getting sick or infected by viruses or bacterias, so he avoids normal human touching or contact. Extremely worry about cleanliness. Lack of determination and derrotism-negativity in everyday activity.

    This patient also suffers from left knee pain due to jogging with warming properly. He does almost no exercise but is underweight. and is reluctant to exercise because of fear to further damage or hurt his knee.
    His tongue has some little tooth indentations on the sides, but tongue color seem normal reddish hue color and normal thin white Saburra.

    I know that is not easy to diagnose with only these information but any suggestion you may have I know will be helpful.

    I am in the process to purchase the Acugraph 4 package to diagnose better these type of complicated patients.



  4. Hi Kimberly,

    I have a question about when you say, “I balanced the graph…” or “after balancing the graph…”. Do you mean that you’re simply using the suggested points to balance the graph and making additions or do you mean that you balance the graph by using the suggested point then RETEST to make sure the graph is balanced, before adding the additional points?

    1. Hello Sherry,

      I balance the graph based on suggested acupuncture points. I do NOT retest the patient after I balance the graph. It takes at least 24 hours for the energy to settle after a treatment. If you regraphed immediately following treatment, your results would be highly skewed.

      I do have some advanced techniques which I use to balance the graph. Here are links to a series of blog posts that I wrote to help you know my thinking process for treatment.

      I learned my approach from Dr. Jake Fratkin. You can purchase that seminar for CEU’s if you would like.


So, what do you think about it?
