What to Expect from Your First Appointment
When coming for an acupuncture treatment, patients should expect the session to last about 40 to 60 minutes. Dr. Liu recommends returning once or twice a week for up to 8-10 treatments. A physician’s reference is preferred; however some insurance will cover acupuncture treatment without a physician’s reference.
At your first visit, you will be asked to provide the following information:
• Your main concern for the visit
(your problems, e.g. back pain)
• Your medical history which may be related to your
• Relevant issues which might relate to your problem
Prior to treatment, you will be given a tongue diagnosis, pulse diagnosis and body movement exam if relevant.
We observe your tongue’s colour and shape and so on. According to TCM theories the tongue’s colour and shape represent the individual’s body conditions.
In western medicine a health practitioner will take your pulse to determine the rate and rhythm of your heart beat. According to TCM theories, there are six pulses. Three positions are on the right side and three on the left. Each pulse is related to specific organ functions including the lungs, spleen, heart, liver and kidney.
After the examination, acupuncture treatment will be performed based on your conditions. Herbal medicine might also be suggested.
