A list of simple treatments

I am adding this list to my five element treatments blog in the hope that it will inspire five element practitioners to stay on the straight and narrow path of simplicity, and avoid the temptation to wander off into the jungle of complex point combinations.

I suggested these treatments for 6 patients whom another practitioner brought to me for consultation.  I like to think that they show the kind of simple treatments I use in my own practice.

Moxa cones were added to the points before needling unless where contra-indicated, and all points were tonified.
