Dr. Callahan and also Mary had actually been functioning on this issue with each other for over a year. Mary functioned up the courage to rest within sight of the pool at Dr. Callahan's residence.
Dr. Callahan had actually just recently been researching typical Chinese medicines, and also finding out regarding meridians. Remembering that there was an acupuncture point for the tummy meridian on the cheekbone, he asked her to tap there, thinking it may heal her tummy pains.
