In Chinese medicine, diseases are categorized by patterns and symptoms. Pattern differentiation (diagnosis) of your health condition is done by examining your tongue and pulses, plus asking about your sleep, appetite, thirst, energy level, bowel movement, urination, and tendency towards feeling cold or warm. In addition, your past medical history, present health, life style, eating habits, and emotional state will also be inquired. Since our body is dynamic and constantly changing, the evaluation is done with every office visit.
Tiny, disposable, sterile needles are placed into specific acupuncture points based on your diagnosis. Typically, anywhere from 6 to 20 points are chosen depending on your specific pattern in order to rebalance your body to obtain optimum results.
