Patient 5: Treatment (Earth)

Patient: Female, age 50

Element:  Earth 

Number of years coming for treatment: 10

Number of prior treatments: Comes three or four times a year

Main problem today:   Nothing really.  Just wants a top-up and to feel good for an acting job she will be doing in a few weeks.  She is a bit worried about her weight, which is still more than it should be, although it is staying steady at the moment.  Would like to lose a few pounds, but can’t seem to shift weight, even though eats carefully.  Looked well.  Very strong sweet, rather sickly smell.

Treatment given:
1                     CV 12 (no moxa as has slightly too high BP)
2                     Sp 20 (I love the name of this point, Encircling Glory, and I always feel it is like enfolding a patient in Spleen’s arms)
3                     St 40, Sp 4

At the end of treatment:  As usual, better yellow colour, smell slightly less improved.  She looked happy as she left.
Time of next treatment:  Will phone for an appointment again in January.

Proposals for next treatment:  Perhaps AEPs (back shu points), St 9 (Window of the ky) might also be good as a way of helping her see forward into the New Year.
