What are the Background Colors behind the Divergent Treatment Protocol? 5/5 (52)

AcuGraph Version 5.3 Software Update 

Our latest software update, AcuGraph version 5.3, was officially released September 11th. One of our favorite features is the new color coding built into the Divergent Channel Protocol. Watch this video and follow along in the post to learn about it!

*Have you updated your AcuGraph 5 software to the latest version? Launch the AcuGraph application, and you will be automatically prompted to update to the latest version.

Once you’ve completed your graph, click the Divergent Channel Icon in the bottom left corner in the ‘Treatments’ box. You’ll see the treatment points appear below the graph. Click ‘Add These Points to Today’s Plan’ and the points will fill into the treatment column.

With the new update, when you add the Divergent Channel treatment, these points will show up on color-coded backgrounds of yellow, green and red. Remember, the Divergent Channel Protocol is a 3-Dimensional balancing. It balances the body in three specific ways. The three colors represent those three categories of balance. 

What the Colors Mean

The points in the yellow area are the Extraordinary Vessels, therefore, selected balancing points are master points for the Extraordinary Vessels. In addition to the color-coded background, the points themselves are given a colorred points need to be tonified, and blue points need to be sedated.

Finally, you’ll need to check whether the left or right box is checked so that you know which side to treat. Because this treatment involves balancing, it’s best to treat with bipolar electronic stimulation or needle techniques, blue and red lasers, or better yet, ion pumping cords.

Paired Organ Divergence

The next color, green, is for divergences between paired organs, or Yin and Yang, so AcuGraph recommends Master control points and He-Sea points for balancing this category. Treat points in the same way—pay attention to both the polarity (red or blue) and the side (right or left.)

Left/Right Divergence 

Finally, the color category red is for left/right divergences. It highlights the two largest divergences between left and right in a single channel. AcuGraph recommends Back-shu points for balancing this category. Follow the same conventions discussed above, treating with both polarity and side in mind.

More Visibility Means more Control 

The new color coding and grouping for the Divergent Channel Protocol simply makes it easier to see which points address which systems. As such, it’s easier for you to take control of your treatment!

If there is a part of the Divergent Protocol you wish to remove from the treatment plan, it’s now simple to do—just click the ‘x’ next to each unwanted point.
