The swelling is all around the arm and on the hand, most of the dorsum of the hand. Obviously this is a problem with the lymphatic system.The pressure leaves marks on the skin of the dorsum of the hand, i.e. a pitting Yin edema, while it does not on the arm, i.e. non-pitting Yang edema. This appears a local problem and not systemic.
What do you think about the following treament?
Li-4/ 11/ 15 - distal direction
P-6/ P-5 - proximal direction
All on the affected side by strong dispersion.
Sp-6/ Sp-9/ Ren-10 = dispersion, possibly warm needling on Ren-10.
- Any other ideas?
