Patient 7: Treatment (Metal)

Patient: Male, age 35

Element:  Metal

Number of years coming for treatment: 4

Number of prior treatments: Comes for treatment about 5-6 times a year.

Main problem today:   Nothing in particular.  Just coming for his autumn seasonal treatment.

Treatment given:

1    Bl 37 (42) Soul Door:  this point is at the level of the AEP (back shu) point of the Lung, and I see this as giving it a special relationship to Metal. 
2    Co 1, Lu 8:  Metal element points within Metal, autumn seasonal treatment (the best treatment of the year for Metal patients). This point would be even better at Metal's horary time in the early morning as well as in autumn, but for practical reasons that is not possible.

At the end of treatment:  His eyes looked brighter, and his colour looked better.

Time of next treatment:  Whenever he feels that he needs it.  Like many Metal people, he is very aware of the level of his own energy, and when in balance will know exactly when a treatment is needed.

Proposals for next treatment:  AEPs (back shu) of Metal, Lu 10 (according to JR “the most spiritual point in the body”), or Windows of the Sky.
