We will discuss with you which treatments are best suited to your condition during your consultation which is as outlined below;
Questioning: It consists on listening to the patient's discomfort and conducting an extensive interview. The practitioner would ask questions related to body condition (like temperature, perspiration, appetite, thirst, sleeping, energy, urine, stools etc), past medical history, emotional issues (depression, mood swing, lack of concentration etc) and lifestyle, which might include environmental conditions (at work place and home), relationship (with partners, families, friends, and co-workers), diet patterns, sex life, and exercise. These questions provide important information about the physical and mental condition of the patient.
Observation: TCM practitioners are trained in the observation of external signs of any imbalance of the internal body. The tongue plays an important role in this technique, but information is also gathered from the conditions of the skin, hair, nails, throat, teeth, gum, mouth, lips, face etc.
Hearing and smelling: Information is gathered from the conditions of the voice and breathing and the presence of cough, frequent sighing, hiccups and BorBorygmus, as well as from the odours of the body.
Palpation: Palpating, feeling and pressing in specific areas of the body are also ways to determine the condition of a patient. Pulse diagnostics plays a very important role in TCM, giving information on the state of individual organs and the balance of the body as a whole.
