I am treating a 9 year old child for headaches.
I haven’t treated many children with Sa’am and there are not many symptoms to work with so I would love some guidance on the case. TIA!
9 year old girl
MC: headaches started 10 months ago - right before corona broke out.
Headache feels like a squishing on both sides of her head
and a banging on her forehead
sometimes it moves around to different places on her head.
Loud sounds make it worse
She wakes up with it in the morning
sometimes it stays all day and sometimes it goes and comes back in the evening.
LIfestyle and appearance
is in fourth grade
has been in and out of school since corona started
Sometimes in school and sometimes on zoom at home (when country is on lockdown)
has curly, frizzy red hair
light skin, bright eyes 5+
average weight, bigger bones 6+, tall 6+
sleep: trouble falling asleep at night 7+
Emotions: happy 7+
has anxiety in relation to school and teachers 7+
scared of getting in trouble with teachers and getting school work done
decisive, assertive. does not get angry much
gets upset if accused of doing something she did not do or if someone said something mean. May cry but does not usually scream in anger.
meticulous and neat 8+
energy level fine
likes forest and sun
likes to go out and stay home
red dots on tip
area btw sternum and umbilicus a bit tight
GB headache 8+ trouble falling asleep 7+ decisive 6+ assertive 6+
SJ bright eyes 6+ meticulous and neat 7+
Ht loving 6+ tight btw sternum and umbilicus 5+
Kid thick hair 7+ young 9+ pain 8+
the first treatment I did was Liv+ ®
her pain went down from a 7 to a 6
the next treatment was PC+ ®
I do not know yet how it affected her
it did not significantly affect the headache she had at the moment
I can still try SI and possibly Bl even though she is not particularly hot.
I was wondering what others thought.
Also - since I dont usually treat children is there something that I should know about treating children with Saam that others have learned from experience?
Also - since the needles are tough for her I would really like to get it right…
