Consultation and treatment
1st Consultation and Treatment
The first time you are always examined using the TCM method: looking (eyes, tongue), listening (voice, breathing), smelling (body odor), asking questions and feeling (pulse/wrist). Subsequently, important points on your body are examined if necessary. In addition to your personal details and disease history, questions will also be asked regarding your lifestyle, nutrition, daily schedule and living conditions. We also look at Western diagnostics and especially encourage you to bring this data with you. All this information helps the acupuncturist in making a diagnosis and treatment plan for you in accordance with the ChinaMedic Approach. You will receive the first treatment usually immediately following the consultation.
Listen and smell
When you come for a treatment, certainly the first time, we advise you to read the Tips & Advice page.
The total number of treatments depends on the nature and severity of the symptoms. Most common is a series of 6 to 10 sessions. Each treatment lasts approximately 45 minutes and in most cases the frequency is 2x a week. For the best result it’s inadvisable to interrupt the series of sessions.
