In order to better serve you, we made a list of things for you to prepare before your first appointment.
Chinese medicine is a holistic medicine and aims to discover the roots of any particular illness. During your first appointment, the main problem will be discussed in detail. We will then ask other relevant questions about your health to help build up a complete picture and to put your illness into holistic context. After the discussion we will take your pulse and examine your tongue. Taking the pulse in Chinese Medicine is very different from Western medicine as it is an important pillar of diagnosis, which helps give information about the state of your Qi and the status of your internal organs. A physical examination will be performed for any muscular-skeletal problems and it is common practice to palpate along acupuncture channels for a wide range of ailments.
