Sciatica and Nighttime Urination Testimony
Age: About 70
Conditions: Sciatica, Nighttime
Sciatica has bothered me for many, many years. I forced myself to take a little walk every day. Lately my right calf experienced serious soreness. After walking for about 20 minutes, I had to stop for a break before continuing my walk.
Owen did Tuina on my toes, both sides of my calf and on the right foot for a few minutes. I felt the warmness start on the right foot, then go up to my lower abdomen. The feeling was really nice. Next day, after taking a walk, the sore pain was significantly reduced, I only felt the sore pain around my right ankle.
During Owen's Qigong scanning, he asked if my bladder functions were normal. It reminded me that I needed to go to the restroom frequently. I had to go four to five times every night, which caused me to not sleep well. When I was younger, I had taught for long hours with very limited break time, so there was no time to go to the restroom. That was the cause of my urine infection. Also, when carrying a heavy load, the urine would come out by itself. After Owen's first
Tuina treatment, I was amazed that I only needed to go to the restroom once each night. Even on the third night, after I drank two bowls of soup, I only went to the restroom once. My number of visits to the restroom also reduced during the day. I don't have to keep looking for restrooms while window shopping.
Owen's Qigong Tuina seems to follow Chinese meridians. When he did Tuina on the left temple above my ear, I immediately felt a stream flew by my right knee quickly, and go straight down to the fourth right toe. Later, he massaged the outside of my right foot. At first, my ankle felt numbness and then this was followed by distending pain. After that, Owen asked me to have a walk, and I felt much better. When I returned to the treatment table, I surprised myself by unexpectedly getting up onto the table by using the leg with the problem, my right leg. I had been using my left leg to pull my right leg when I walked up or down stairs.
