Case Report Client Session using FDS:
I worked with a man who has a profession where he has to stand almost all of the day. He is quite large and works in a very small space. He wears very expensive shoes so that his feet and legs hurt him less. He received acupuncture but it gave only temporary relief. He suffers continual pain in his legs and low back and swelling in his legs and feet.
I gave him a sessions of mostly FDS. He felt immediate relief in his feet and legs and low back. He said he could not remember feeling so good. The work on his feet also released stiffness in his hips and upper back. His circulation improved and he could feel the warming of blood flow throughout his whole body. I visited him at his shop 3 weeks later and he said he was still benefiting from the treatment and the pain and stiffness had not returned.
