Patient 32 Metal (Treatments 1 - 3)

Patient: Female, age 24

Element: Metal: I think her official is Lung, not Large Intestine. She has no problem letting go, but quite a few problems in taking in, literally in finding “inspiration”.

Number of treatments: Today is her third treatment. Treatment 1: AE drain and source points of Metal. Treatment 2: Entry/exit block Co-St, Bl 37, Co 11, Lu 9.

Main problem today: Feels quite uncertain about her future career. Is an artist, and feels unsure about what direction her studies will take her. Is from another European country, and does not know yet whether she wants to settle in England, although has a long-standing English partner.

Patient’s comments since I saw her last week:
“I have started to paint again in the last week. I was frightened to look at my work because I couldn’t see what I needed to do, but I found myself re-evaluating what I had done, which I couldn’t do before. A really lovely moment when I realised that I wasn’t so stuck.”

Treatment given today:

1 AEPs of Metal

2 Lu 10, Co 6  JR always said that Lu 10 is the most spiritual point in the body, and I tell my patients this and watch their reaction. Metal without exception reacts with a look of wonder and delight, indicating “So I am worth having this most spiritual point, am I?”. If I have not got the right element, and the patient is not Metal, there are different reactions. Fire looks fairly, but not overly, pleased (Outer Fire) or puzzled (Inner Fire, SI trying to sort out what that means), and Earth indifferent. I have used these reactions to help me change elements.  We have to use every little indication we can!.

At the end of treatment: She said that the rather uncomfortable and bloated abdomen she had come with now felt warm and relaxed.

Time of next treatment: Next week

Proposals for next treatments: Bl 39 (42) and Lu 8, or possibly Windows. Normally I would wait a little longer before doing Windows, but she is already “seeing” a lot, and will welcome the Window points.

See Blog of 22 August for Treatment 4.
