Treatment process: He had 4 courses of treatment over an 8-year
period. The patient’s initial treatment
was for right arm, shoulder, and neck pain at level of 2-8/10. 6 treatments of
Saam relieved most of the pain. 3 years later, he was treated for hay fever,
which was mostly cleared with only 2 visits. 1 year later, his stomach flu with
vomiting and diarrhea, although improving, were immediately better with Saam.
One year later, his 1-month of persistent left forearm pain was mostly better
with 4 treatments of Bisoma. 1 year
later, he had plantar fasciitis. 2 Bisoma acupuncture treatments reduced most
of the pain. It came back again 1 year later. 6 treatments of Bisoma again
reduce most of the pain.

when the points align well with the patient for treatment of both external and
