Successful Healing of Tendon Strain at Spleen Four
A female patient, age 48, had used exercise shoes with rounded bottoms. She came for treatment at the end of 2010. The patient suffered from severe pain (10 out of 10) caused by an acute tendon strain at spleen 4. The patient used crutches. The injury had happened about one week before. The area of concern had been red, swollen and inflamed (toxins seemed to come out). It appeared that the patient developed cellulites.

Dr. Blaine prescribed a systemic immune treatment. She also applied acupuncture outside the inflamed area of the foot. Three herbal patches were used to speed up the healing process. In addition a cold heat technique had been applied to stimulate the circulation at deep levels and seduce the intensity of the inflammation (IR heat and cold pack). Once the irritation of the infected area had been eliminated Dr. Blaine applied acupuncture there as well.

After two weeks of treatment the pain level had been reduced by 80%. The FASTT patches sped up the recovery tremendously. The results were remarkable given that the patient came for a total of six treatments within two weeks. There is no maintenance needed.
Successful of Healing of Bad Knees
A female patient, age 50, incurred two car accident and one fall within a one-year time frame. Both knees had been weakened due to the car accidents. After falling down three steps on to concrete, both knees had become swollen and inflamed. As a result, the patient could not walk.

Dr. Blaine applied a total of eight treatments in 2008 (two treatments per week for the first two weeks; one treatment a week for the following four weeks). It implied 12 herbal patches combined with electro acupuncture and moa (herbal heat directly or indirectly applied to the deficient area).

The results were remarkable. Both knees had completely healed after 6 weeks. Dr. Blaine continued with 4 additional maintenance treatments for another 4 weeks (combination of acupuncture and infrared heat). Those were meant to support the post treatment recovery.
