22-year-old Ellen was visiting her boyfriend's family last year. During her stay she developed constipation, probably due to change of place and diet. She couldn't open her bowels for about 10 days and felt really uncomfortable. Her boyfriend's mum got worried and brought her to see me. I did electro-acupuncture in her tummy and cupping on her back. She felt relaxed afterwards. Two days later I got a phone call from her boyfriend's mum saying: "Ellen went to the toilet a few times the day after your treatment. It's a big relief! Whatever you did worked brilliantly!"
