What to Expect
At your first appointment, plan for 1 1/2 hours.
First, you will fill out paperwork and consents and then we will talk about what brings you to me for help. I conduct a thorough medical history. I need to understand when this problem started, what has been tried, what does and does not help, and your other medical issues and experiences. I will listen to you and then listen directly to your body by feeling both your Western pulse and your Chinese pulses and taking a look at your tongue. I use this pulse taking and tongue reading to give me information about how your systems are functioning. As needed, I may do some diagnostic tests and, with your permission, use my fingers to feel around the areas where you are having pain or problems. Once I have a clearer picture of where your body needs help, I will share my findings with you and we will start a treatment.
Follow up appointments for further treatment will take 1 hour.
