Traditional Chinese Medical practitioners use a holistic approach to health care. They know the body as an element of nature that has the innate ability to function optimally when certain conditions are met in its external and internal environments.
By using the diagnostic tools of TCM including but not limited to pulse and tongue diagnosis, the practitioner assesses the patient's overall condition, including mental, emotional, physical and spiritual wellness. The diagnostics take into account the entire body, every subtle or obvious symptom, and the patient's entire lifestyle. The assessment helps the practitioner determine the appropriate modality and acupoint selection, and often necessitates an herbal medicine prescription to deliver the body back to its natural harmonious state.
