Example text

Some children will like you and what you are doing immediately; others take time to demonstrate trust, especially if they have been chronically ill and have seen many health care providers, or have had many treatments. It is thus advisable to take the time over the first treatment to make sure that the child is settled, comfortable with you, and not frightened by you. This is not only to do with your manner and behavior; it is also to do with how you apply your treatment techniques, how you handle the child.

On the accompanying ➤ DVD various examples are given of how to hold these instruments for stroking. The ➤ DVD shows how to hold them so that as one strokes or rubs with them they are out of view of the patient. How one holds the instrument and which instrument one uses can apply different doses to the region worked on. For example, when using the rounded ball instrument, allowing the rounded end to protrude slightly out from the surface of the palm can apply an increased dose. Holding the fingers of the stroking hand in such a way that the instrument is cushioned within them, and then stroking with both fingers and instrument can apply a lower dose.

Sometimes this will finish treatment. Dealing with patient reactions to your treatment requires many levels of skills. First, you must be grounded and able to react through controlled emotions without defensive responses. Then you must also be practical enough and patient-focused enough to recognize and be able to correct this so that the patient will continue treatment without resistance (Yanagishita 2003). When correctly applied, the appropriate treatment is clinically more effective. Although I outline a number of useful ideas here, I recognize the cautions of my teachers that understanding the correct dose of treatment can be a lifetime endeavor (Kasumi 2003).
