During the initial exam, a full health history is taken. Questions are asked regarding health, symptoms and lifestyle. An appropriate physical exam is conducted, including pulse, tongue and sometimes ear diagnosis.
Gathering this information enables me to effectively diagnose and detect any specific imbalances of Qi that may have contributed to your health problems. I can then create a well-structured treatment plan.
Once the imbalances of Qi are detected, I will place fine, sterile needles at specific acupoints along meridian pathways. This safe and painless insertion of the needles can unblock the obstruction and balance Qi where it has become unbalanced. Once this is done, Qi can freely circulate throughout the body, providing adequate nourishment to cells, organs, glands, tissues and muscles. This can eliminate pain and restore balance and harmony, as well as the body’s ability to heal itself—ultimately leading to optimal health and well-being.
Acupuncture, Chinese medicine, Auricular Medicine and Natural Medicine are safe, effective and drug-free therapies that can help address a wide variety of common ailments and problems.
