PEDIATRIC ACUGRAPH EXAMPLES
Overall, this is a healthy child with lots of energy (135 average) who struggles with allergies and hives. The Lung (LU) channel is deficient which relates to an insufficient immune system. The Triple Energizer (TE) channel is in excess, which could be relating to either the location of the hives or heat throughout the body in general. The Heart (HT) channel shows a split, meaning there is more energy in the left side channel than the right (which appears to be deficient). The Heart channel relates to emotional balance and can be felt as anxiety, insomnia, depression, mania, or heartache when imbalanced.
This 11-year old girl is generally quite healthy. Her energy level at the time of the AcuGraph reading is slightly low (88 average) for a child, although it correlates with her coming directly from hockey practice and intensive exercise. The main concept to be seen by this graph is that the Lung (LU), Pericardium (PC), and Heart (HT) channels are all very deficient. These three channels are found in the chest, and after questioning and discussion, it is noted that her chest muscles are sore and weak from excessive hockey. The Spleen (SP) and Kidney (KI) channels are in excess, relating to her underlying constitution and occasionally poor diet. The Gall Bladder (GB) channel makes up the entire side of the body which can be excessive with any particular exercise relating to twists.
The graph above is this 6-year old's first graph. Treatment was provided with the goals of raising her overall energy level (preferably closer to 100 average) and balancing the deficient, excess, and split channels.
Below is the graph for her follow-up visit. Notice how the average energy range has risen, allowing us to see which imbalances to focus on for this treatment.
This graph shows an overall healthy 3-year old who tends towards illness. The Spleen (SP) channel, which is deficient here, is responsible for healthy blood, digestion, and muscle strength. By simply changing the diet and providing food therapy tips to this little girl's parents, she started feeling better! This allowed her to go out and play, ultimately increasing the strength of her stabilizer muscles in her back and legs (benefiting the Bladder UB channel).
3-month-old boy with digestive & muscular complaints
Above is the first graph done for this 3-month old. He struggled with excessive and painful gas, lack of regular bowel movements, and tightness in his back from labor. He also had tachypnea (rapid breathing) and was in the NICU for 5 days after birth.
Below is the graph was taken at his next appointment, revealing more balance and comfort post acupuncture. After a few treatments, his gas is now minimal. He has multiple bowel movements a day and even sleeps through the night!
