Diagnosis & Treatment
What is the diagnosis procedure of Traditional Chinese Medicine?

The procedure, as performed by an experienced acupuncture physician, is very simple and direct.

First: observation of the patient, taking the facial analysis, noting color and condition of the tongue, texture and condition of the skin, hair and voice – its strength or weakness.

Second: interrogation of patient, asking a history of illness, lifestyle, habit of eating, the patient feeling and even emotional problems may contribute to CHI’s imbalance.

Third: Chinese pulse diagnosis*; evaluation of the Chinese pulse reveal the excesses, deficiencies of CHI to its organs are involved.

Fourth: Physical examination; feeling for tender acu-points is a reliable diagnostic instrument, because some acu-points are related to specific organs and functions of the body, and tenderness may relate to specific problem of organs.  

note*: In Chinese Medicine the human body has several pulses, and deep knowledge of their characteristics and subtle relations between one another is of vital importance for a diagnostic to have value.  In this aspect, years of experience and adequate training have no replacement.
