Patient: Female, age 50
Element: Fire (Inner Fire)
Number of years coming for treatment: 6 years
Number of prior treatments: At the moment comes every month as she is undergoing many major changes in her work life.
Original problems: These are so far back that they are now irrelevant, but the original cause for her wanting treatment was a sore back as a result of a fall which bruised her coccyx badly. Felt the benefit from treatment was so great in many areas of her life that has continued on a regular basis since then. Particularly pleased that she has been able to work out a good relationship with her family, which had previously been very fraught.
Change since start of treatment: Very much more able to work out her priorities, particularly in how she approaches her work. Is in a very senior position, with many responsibilities, and being Inner Fire thinks she has to sort out everything for everybody else. Is now much better at seeing when she needs to rein herself in. and leave others to do their own sorting.
Problems today: A very nasty cough and painful chest, many real problems relating to changes at work as a result of financial cut-backs. As usual when she is in need of treatment arrives flustered and over-excited, talking her way into the practice room almost before I greet her, a sign that her Fire element is in overload.
1 Co-St block (Co 20, St 1) (Blocked Metal, as shown by the excess energy in the
pulse, which probably explains the cough and chest pain) Colon
2 SI 17 (Window of the Sky) (SI loves the Windows, and both SI 16 and SI 17 – but not at the same time – give a great deal of relief in helping the sorting mechanism see clearly what needs to be done. I see SI 17 as slightly stronger than SI 16, since it is the point further along the SI, and therefore will benefit from the action of SI 16 before it)
3 SI 3, Ht 9
At the end of treatment: Her colour changed to a healthier pink immediately after the Co-St block was cleared. She said her chest felt better. She always loves coming for treatment, because she tells me she knows that she will feel better even before she gets up from the couch. She was calmer, and moved less jerkily as she left.
Time of next treatment: She will have another treatment in about 2 weeks to reinforce today’s treatment.
Proposals for next treatment: SI 14, SI 7 or AEPs of SI and Ht
