does your doctor know what is causing your illness?
A licensed Chinese medicine practitioner uses a complex
system of differential diagnosis to pin point the root cause
of your illness. When you arrive for your first treatment
you will be asked to fill out a detailed questionnaire about
your main complaints and your current and past health history.
Your acupuncturist will then ask you some questions, observe
your facial coloring, look at your tongue, read your pulse
and possibly perform other diagnostic tests if necessary.
Pulse and tongue reading are two very important diagnostic
tools of the Chinese medical practitioner. Your acupuncturist
will then use this information to come up with a diagnosis
of the imbalances in your body which are causing your illness
and a treatment plan to alleviate them.
