Consultations usually take approximately one hour to discuss your health concerns in-depth.

Traditional Chinese Medicine Diagnosis

Ancient diagnostic methods include an examination of the tongue and pulse. It is recommended to avoid brushing your teeth, scraping your tongue, eating or drinking prior to the consultation to avoid obscuring the findings of the tongue evaluation.

For long distance sessions, it would be helpful for the diagnosis if you could take a good quality photo of your tongue, preferably first thing in the morning in natural sunlight.

Food as Medicine

According to traditional Chinese medicine, different foods have different energetic properties and effects. Recommendations will be provided to treat organ imbalances specific to your individual diagnosis and body type.

Colors and tastes nourish different organs and Qi channels (energy pathways). Tastes include: sweet (spleen), salty (kidneys), sour (liver), spicy (lungs), and bitter (heart). Foods are categorized into cold (yin) and warm (yang) which are appropriate for different seasons and climates.

Acupressure and Meridian Massage

Guidelines on acupressure and meridian will be instructed to supplement the treatment. Acupressure is an ancient form of massage which uses physical pressure from fingers, palms, elbows or feet, or special devices to acupuncture points with the aim of clearing blockages in the affected meridians.

Medical Qigong Exercises

Focused exercises with gentle breathing, stretching and strengthening movements will also be advised to help restore balance in the affected organs and meridians, i.e. Four Seasons Qigong, Five Animal Sports Qigong, Eight Pieces of Brocade Qigong, Meridian Qigong, White Crane Qigong, Tai Chi Ball Qigong, Tai Chi and more.

Next Steps and Decisions

Time will be given for discussing your next steps and addressing any questions you may have. Resources and referrals may be recommended.

Follow-up sessions are beneficial for evaluating your progress, as well as for receiving further instruction and training on Chinese Medicine theory and Medical Qigong practice for achieving your personal health goals.
