Initial Visit: During your initial visit, we will review your health history as well as your present condition, including a thorough intake consisting of questions regarding your body, diet, and lifestyle. Some questions may at first appear to be irrelevant to your current complaint, but keep in mind that TCM is a holistic medicine, and each answer plays an integral role in helping to determine the proper diagnosis and treatment of your condition. Treatment may include AcuPatching™ with phototherapy patches, acupressure, herb/supplement and dietary and lifestyle advice.
Follow-up Visit: Follow-up visits will include a brief intake and update of your condition followed by the appropriate treatment. Treatment may include AcuPatching™ with phototherapy patches, acupressure, herb/supplement and dietary and lifestyle advice.
