I recently started running and before I received Shaho-shin I had ordered in Japan, I hurt my right ankle. This pain went away after a few treatments with regular Teishin. A few days later I started running again and this time I felt pain in my left ankle instead of right ankle, but I continued running because I thought it was not serious and would go away soon while I was running. But after running, I could barely walk due to the pain. So I treated the ankle with Teishin as well as I had treated my right ankle. I kept treating for about 2 weeks, but the pain didn't go away and it got worse with swelling especially after walking. The pain was not limited at the ankle but spread to the top of the foot so I doubted possibility of fracture, and I even thought it would not get better any more.
When I was thinking like that, I received Shaho-shin. I thought that it would not be a good idea to give strong stimulation, but anyway I decided to try Shaho-shin. After the treatment, the pain was less but still there was pain. I continued such treatment for 3 days and on the forth day, the pain was gone. I didn't feel pain even when I walked. The next day I was not sure whether my left foot was as good as I could run, but I tried to run. The result was I didn't have pain during and after running.
By such experience, I completely believe the effect of Shaho-shin. I was not sure there was a hairline fracture kind of defect in my left foot since I didn't go to the hospital, but if there was a problem of so-called "the Blood level", I felt that direct approach with Shaho-shin was really effective.
