Patient 6: Treatment (Wood)

Patient: Female, age 49

Element:  Wood 

Number of years coming for treatment: 5

Number of prior treatments: Comes very infrequently now, and always waits a little too long.  This may be for financial reasons, although she knows I offer her a good reduced rate for her treatments.

Main problem today:   Had bad asthmatic attack a few weeks ago, still finding breathing difficult.  Antibiotics had not helped very much.  Still very worried about her weight, as she is very overweight.  Ankles very swollen, even though she is on diuretics to help. 

Treatment given:  No moxa on any points because of high BP
Co 20, St 1 (Co-Lu block)
Liv 14 Gate of Hope
Liv 4 (transfer from Metal), GB 37 (transfer into Gall Bladder from Liver)  

At the end of treatment:  Breathing cleared immediately after block treated.  She said she could breathe more easily.  Colour had changed, a better green.

Time of next treatment:  If breathing becomes difficult again, will phone for an appointment within a month.  I emphasized the need for a spring treatment, which she forgot this year.

Proposals for next treatment:  Watch for other blocks, particularly Liv-Lu,  AEPs (back shu) of Wood.
