A detailed Assessment is carried out on a client visiting a T.C.M clinic. All aspects of the person are taken into consideration when the practitioner is making the Assessment.
Specific details of symptoms, past and current medical history, family, lifestyle, diet and mental and emotional factors are all part of the evaluation. The T.C.M practitioner relies on traditional diagnostic skills, these include tongue and pulse diagnosis. This allows the practitioner to see and feel energy imbalance in any of the meridians and tailor their treatment to the individual.
You may also receive dietary and lifestyle advice. A treatment plan is worked out in accordance with each persons individual health needs and circumstances.
You may see results after the first treatment or after a few. You will generally feel more relaxed and centered. The needles used are very fine, just a little thicker than a hair, and very sharp so that they slide
in through the skin with the minimum of resistence. They are usually left
in between 20-40 minutes, so that you relax completely and often fall
asleep. They are sterile, used only once and discarded safely.
