I began her treatment like I normally begin a Qigong treatment, but soon I could feel my hands being guided to direct Qi at specific acupuncture points; CV 8, KI4, ST43, SP6. I also felt prompted to visualize and directing her energy to take the swelling and stagnant energy away from her feet and ankles and to clear it out, replacing it with clean and vibrant energy. Near the end of her treatment I was clearing out the kidneys to wash away the stagnation. I also was prompted to massage her thumb, then her pinkies, which corresponds with LU11 and Ht9. Finally, I re-energize energy in her heart to work in sync with her kidneys to better regulate and move her interstitial fluids.
At the end of the treatment she expressed how she felt another pair of hands treating her. For example, she knew I was physically at her head, but she could feel someone working on her feet at the same time. She also noticed how the swelling in her ankles and feet had remarkably reduced since the beginning of her treatment. She even called me from home to let me know she had expected her foot to be swollen again after driving in a car with her foot not being elevated, but when she got home, her foot still looked normal! This was good news!
It was fun giving a Qigong treatment and having her be open to being guided by another presence who probably knew more of her needs than I.
