YOUR OFFICE VISIT
Your initial treatment will allow more time, so Marie can conduct a complete health history interview. The room is clean and peaceful. From a chair or a comfortable La-Z-Boy recliner, you'll have an opportunity to fully describe the specific complaints that prompted you to seek care.
Marie will ask lots of questions, along the way, to further clarify her understanding of what you are describing, and she will listen carefully to your answers. She will, then, examine your tongue and pulse -- two key indicators that acupuncturists and herbalists use to gather a wealth of information about your health.
Individualized Treatment Plan
Using what she has learned from studying your tongue and pulse, Marie will arrive at a Chinese Medicine diagnosis of your health concern. Your individualized treatment plan will be based on everything she has learned through this initial interview.
Your Course of Treatment
The nature and severity of a health problem determine the number of treatments necessary. While some conditions may show dramatic improvement after only one treatment, more chronic conditions may require multiple treatments over a period of days or weeks.
In addition to acupuncture, your visit may also include:
Chinese herbal formulas
Medical Qigong therapy
Chinese nutritional therapy and dietary counseling
Other therapies or body work, as described at right
