Patient 29: Treatment 6 & 7 (Wood)

Patient:  Male, age 25

Element:  Wood

Number of prior treatments: Five  (see blogs of 15.5.11, 19.5.11,  27.5.11 &  23. 6. 11 for previous treatments) ,

Treatment 6
Observation of patient at the start of treatment 6:   
“I felt positive after the last treatment.”  I felt his eyes looked better and less clouded over.

Treatment given:
I decided to do some points on the Gall Bladder around the eye and head, to reinforce the good energy passing through the eye:

1                    GB 2 
2                    GB 14     
3                    SI – Bl block (again):  I noticed that there was a build-up of fluid on the corner of the eye, and he told me that he had had rather runny eyes all week.  It is unusual to need to re-do entry/exit blocks on several occasions close together, but I think the fact that I have found this block again confirms that there is some trouble with his eyes.  It’s always good to clear a block, because I feel that I am letting good energy flow where it is most needed, to the blocked meridian (this time the Bladder).
4                    GB 34, Li 5

At the end of treatment:  My relationship with the patient is getting warmer and easier each time we meet.

Proposals for next treatment:  Re-check SI – Bl block, just in case I have not cleared it. 

Treatment 7 (one week later)
Observation of patient at the start of treatment 7:  
He walked into the practice room much less heavily, and seemed generally happier.  His eyes had not been so runny until the last 24 hours.

Treatment given:

1                    SI-Bl block again, SI 19 – Bl 1 
2                    GB 3 - strengthening around the eye again
3                    GV 12 Body Pillar:  I felt he could benefit from this point, which I see as straightening the back.  He sits rather slumped over.
4                    Bl 42 Spiritual Soul Gate – to strengthen his spirit.  The point is at the level of the AEP of the GB, and therefore I see this as having a direct relationship with the Wood element.
5                    GB 39, a centre of energy, according to my point book, Liv 3

At the end of treatment:  He closed his eyes after the treatment, and looked as if he could fall asleep.  He was pleased to be offered the chance of just lying quietly on the couch for a further 10 minutes.    
Proposals for next treatment:    GB 25 or Bl 39
