Patient 4: Treatment 2 (Metal)

Patient: Male, age 43

Element:  Metal   

Number of years coming for treatment: 8

Time of last treatment: 3 days ago

Main problem today: (See Patient 4, Treatment 1, for details).  Right eye now slightly more open, can feel right cheek a little more.  Mouth did not look so distorted, but speech still difficult.  Slightly healthier look altogether, I felt.  Less desperate   

Treatment given:
1                     SI/Bl E/E block found again, SI 19, Bl 1 needled.
Decided not to do a CV point for the spirit as suggested at end of last treatment because his spirit looked stronger.
2                     Bl 38 (43) with 7 moxas
3                     Co 18 (to help energy rising towards cheek), and because it is a Window of the Sky (and might therefore help open his drooping
4                     Co 11, Lu 9 with 3 moxas (tonification points – from mother (Earth) to child (Metal).

At the end of treatment:  Slightly better look to face.  Could smile a little without distorting the face as much as before.  Last time he had needed to lubricate his right eye every few minutes, because its dryness irritated him.  I noticed that no longer asked me to bring him his eye drops as he had before.  This probably means that clearing the E/E blocks has allowed greater natural lubrication of the eyes. 

Time of next treatment:  In one week  

Proposal for next treatment:   AEPs of Co and Lu (back shu points), or GV 12 (to shoulder the weight of what he is going through), Lu 10 (which I always remember JR saying was the most spiritual point on the body).



  1. Nora,
    Thank you for sharing this treatments. Is there a possibility you might include pulse picture before during and after treatments?

  2. As a result of your query, I have just written about pulse-taking in Nora Franglen's Blog. I hope what I say will answer your questions.
