Patient 11: Treatment (Metal)

Patient:  Male, age 50

Element:  Metal

Number of years coming for treatment: 10

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

Problems today:  Has come for his autumn seasonal treatment.  It is slightly late for this, I think, but he does not think it is yet winter.  I always ask patients what season they think we are in, as there is a wide discrepancy in people’s judgement of this.   It is important to do a seasonal treatment in the season in which the patient thinks he/she is, as that reflects his/her relationship to the element concerned.

Apart from this, he is trying to work his way forward in his job, and is worried financially.  

Treatment given:

1                    Co-St block, Co 20, St 1
2                    Bl 37 (42) (of special relevance for the Metal element since it is at the level of the AEP of the Lung)
3                    Co 1, Lu 8 (Autumn seasonal treatment)

At the end of treatment:  His colour looked less muddy white, and had changed to a clearer colour.  He seemed much easier in himself, and said that he felt good “as I always do after treatment”.  More animated.

Time of next treatment:  I told him he should not leave it as long as he had this time (this had been 6 months), so he will ring for treatment in March/April. 

Proposals for next treatment:   Windows of the Sky (Co 16, Lu 3), Lu 1?
