What is Acupuncture?
How does it work?
Practitioners assess health by feeling the pulse at each wrist and by observing the color and form of the face, tongue, and body.
This information in addition to the patient’s personal history - present and past complaints, physical environment, family health history, and emotional life help the practitioner to decide what and how to treat the patient.
Treatment may incorporate acupuncture, herbal remedies, diet, exercise, and massage. Duration of treatment depends on the nature of the complaint, its severity, and how long it has been present.
