Chinese medicine is a holistic medicine which aims to discover the root cause of any particular illness or dis-ease.
During your first appointment, your main health issue will be discussed in detail. We will then ask other relevent 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. Please don’t clean your tongue before the appointment as any coating can inform us of your inner health.
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 health. 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.
In the treatment room you may be asked to remove some articles of clothing. Privacy and modesty will be respected at all times. Clean towels are used to cover the body when required. Rooms are kept at a moderate temperature at all times. Your comfort is our concern.
