Acupuncture & Traditional Chinese Medicine In Clinic

At your first appointment I attain a complete picture of your current health status by taking a detailed account of your symptoms, medical and family history, shocks, traumas.  Some of the questions about body functions are a little surprising for some, but all the information is relevant to make an accurate differential diagnosis in TCM terms.  I inspect your tongue for information of its shape, colour, size & coating.  Pulse diagnosis which is taken on both wrists.  I may check the temperature of your skin and palpate problematic areas & abdomen. 

With this information i am able to differente what is happening internally and form a treatment plan.  The plan includes  treatment individually tailored, with a focus on your health and wellness goals.  Treatment rebalances Yin and Yang energies, qi and blood flow and often includes a combination of Acupuncture, Chinese herbs, Tui Na (massage), Moxabustion, Cupping, Dietary Advice, Stress Management and Exercise suitable to the individual.

Based on your differentiated diagnosis and plan acupuncture points are selected.  Treatment is administered, herbs may be given for you to take at home to assist in the balancing process.  Initial consultations take 1.5-2 hours, acupuncture treatment is included in the initial consult.  In clinic you are treated as a whole person, the signs and symptoms you have are addressed along with the root causes for long term sustained results.
