How will I feel?
As the Qi starts to flow in a balanced way again, people start to feel better on every level. Patients often report that not only has their main complaint disappeared but that they feel better in themselves, more energised, happier, sleeping better….
The Acupuncturist's job is to determine which meridians require treatment in order to return the body to harmony. To do this effectively, it is necessary to see the patient as a whole, rather than a collection of symptoms. You will therefore be asked detailed questions about the nature of your symptoms, your medical history, your lifestyle and your emotional well being. A tongue and pulse diagnosis will also be taken. All this helps to build up a picture of how Qi is flowing through your system, where any disharmonies lie, and how to correct them.
