During consultation, a diagnostic pattern is determined from both the Practitioner’s observations and patient’s experience.
Areas of questioning may include:
• sensations of heat and cold;
• urinary and bowel patterns;
• as well as specific details on your main complaint.
Traditional Chinese Medicine diagnosis also includes observation of the tongue, pulse taking and palpation of body regions for trigger points in musculo-skeletal conditions.
With some conditions, improvements may be experienced in as few as 1-2 visits. However chronic conditions usually require a standard course of 8-12 treatments.
Note: 45 minutes should be allowed for consultations.
