Tongue & Pulse Diagnosis

Locate root causes of illnesses and imbalances in your body.

Telehealth requirements: A good quality photo of your tongue is needed for online consultations for a proper Chinese medicine diagnosis—preferably, taken first thing in the morning under natural sunlight before eating, drinking, brushing your teeth or scraping your tongue. A pulse diagnosis will not be possible for telehealth consultations.

Chinese Medicine Diagnosis

Customize a treatment plan and training regimen unique to your individual body type. Traditional Chinese medicine uses 10 simple questions to differentiate your individual body type and formulate a proper Chinese medicine diagnosis.

  • Hot, cold and fever/chills
  • Sweat
  • Head/face
  • Pain
  • Thirst, taste and appetite
  • Stools, urine
  • Sleep, moods and emotions
  • Thorax and abdomen
  • Gynecological conditions
  • Pregnancy and childbirth (where appropriate)
  • Medical history/Family history
  • Tongue & pulse diagnosis

Food as Medicine & Diet/Nutrition

Establish the best balanced diet regimen and lifestyle choices for your individual body type. Is chocolate good or bad for you? Food is the best daily medicine and each individual body type requires different diet/nutrition guidelines.

  • Temperature: Warm (yang foods) versus cold (yin foods)
  • Properties: Fried or baked foods (warm, dry) versus raw (cool, moist)
  • Elements: Wood (green foods), fire (red foods), earth (yellow foods), metal (white foods), water (black/blue foods)
  • Tastes: Sweet (expansive), salty (dissolving), sour (astringent), spicy (ascending), bitter (descending)
  • Seasons: Spring (liver/gall bladder healing foods), summer (heart/small intestine healing foods), late summer (spleen/stomach healing foods), fall (lungs/large intestine healing foods), winter (kidneys/bladder healing foods)
  • Effects: Promoting blood flow and circulation, alleviating cold type pain, and raising the energy (yang foods); versus clearing heat and cooling the blood, removing toxins, nourishing the body (yin foods)

Acupressure & Meridian Massage

Combine the best acupressure points and meridians to clear any Qi blockages within your body and mind. Meridians, also called channels or vessels, are like pathways or rivers along the body through which Qi (vital energy) flows.

  • Acupressure: Massage, or the right pressure, applied to stimulate trigger points (acupoints) of the body to clear any blockages along your energy lines and enhance Qi flow for balance and harmony.
  • Acupuncture: Insertion of fine needles into the skin at specific acupuncture points of the body to treat various conditions.
  • Benefits: Improves circulation and Qi flow of the body to optimize conditions for promoting your body's natural healing capabilities.
  • Conditions: Chronic pain, back and neck issues, shoulder pain, arthritis, sciatica, headache and migraines, nausea and vomiting, bloating and indigestion, bowel problems, anxiety, depression, insomnia, allergies and skin conditions, asthma, addiction, stress relief, high blood pressure, neurological conditions, infertility, painful periods, and more.

Medical Qigong & Personal Training

For best results, get personalized coaching and instruction on your body posture, breathing and movement. Qigong can be used for various purposes, including health and healing, spiritual growth, body strengthening, and elite martial arts training.

  • Qigong: Mind-body exercises that cultivate your Qi (vital energy) flow through the alignment of your body posture and movement, breathing, meditation, Qi sensitivity, physical and mental spirit.
  • Medical Qigong: Chinese energetic medicine used to promote natural health and healing to treat various illnesses and conditions.
  • Qigong sets: Four Seasons Medical Qigong, Five Animal Sports Medical Qigong, Eight Pieces of Brocade Medical Qigong, Meridian Qigong, White Crane Soft and Hard Qigong, Embryonic Breathing Meditation, Small Circulation, Grand Circulation, Tai Chi (Taijiquan) Qigong, Tai Chi (Taiji) Ball Qigong, Martial Arts Qigong and Weapons Training (sword, saber, double rods, staff, spear).
