First Treatment

Your comfort is my biggest concern

Every medical system, regardless of tradition, has to have a way to see into the body. Western medicine uses x-rays, mri’s, and blood work. Chinese medicine uses tongue and pulse diagnosis. Along with a very detailed intake, every patient will have their tongue and pulse assessed in my treatment.

Tongue Diagnosis

The tongue is a reflection of imbalances in the body. Based on abnormalities of tongue shape, size, color, and other features, I am better able to give you a personalized and effective treatment.

Pulse Diagnosis

I take a total of 12 different pulse readings, providing a comprehensive analysis of how your energy is flowing and where it may be blocked.

Acupuncture, Herbs, and Qi Gong

Based on my evaluation, I will determine if you are a good candidate for acupuncture, herbal medicine, or Qi Gong therapy. We can begin the acupuncture therapy in the first session after the evaluation. After all, there is no better time to start optimizing your health than right now!
