Frieda (F) chatted with his male patient (P) during treatment:
F: “How is your cruise?”
P: “What are you asking?”
F: “Do you have fun for touring South America?”
P: “I never get off the ship. When it’s a port day, I only read my book at deck.”
P: “My wife has poor balance. She had many fall downs with many bone fractures.”
F: “I can help your wife. Let her visit me.”
After treated the patient’s wife first time, the next day was a port day. When Frieda came back to ship, she saw the couple walked on the harbor and enjoy the sunshine. The wife walked well.
South American’s sea is not calm in Winter. If there is storm or wind, the waves are high and when you walk on the ship, you can see the person who walks in the front of you is tilted with the ship floor. Sometimes, it’s very tilted.
After the second treatment to the patient’s wife, the patient told Frieda that she could walk well at the ship in the very bad weather without any help and poor balance.
