  • Acupuncture diagnostics

  • Acupuncture is part of Traditional Chinese Medicine, therefore, going to an acupuncturist we can expect a typical Chinese doctors diagnosis based on the experience of the doctor, in-depth interview and observation.

  • Diagnostics always begin with a thorough examination of the patient. Chinese medicine is based on the belief that everything in the body connects to each other and affects each other, in short, it treats the human body holistically. Therefore, the doctor will pay attention to posture, movement, facial expressions, questioning about diet and eating habits. It is important to examine the so-called body windows, i.e. the nose, mouth, lips, ears and eyeballs. According to Chinese medicine, thanks to them you can look deep into the body and learn the condition of its condition. Thanks to a very thorough examination of these parts of the body, the doctor can know the state of the most important internal organs. For example, the state of the tongue may show 9 undesirable deviations from normal health.

  • The doctor will then examine the patient for smell and hearing. In this case, he will pay attention to the way of speaking, the strength of the voice, its clarity. Speaking power may be related to excess or qi energy deficiency. An important aspect is to study how you breathe, whether it's fluid, whether you have difficulty or coughing. The doctor will assess health based on the patient's smell, in particular the smell coming from the mouth and sweat.

  • An important element of Chinese diagnostics is to thoroughly question the patient about his living conditions, age, work, atmosphere at work and home. The interview allows the doctor to determine the origin and course of the disease. Although the questions may sometimes seem strange (e.g. how often we wake up at night when we feel drowsy during the day), they should be answered as accurately as possible. People differ significantly from each other, which can cause disease in others. A good diagnosis means choosing the perfect therapy for a particular patient.

  • Equally important is touch testing, especially along meridians and acupuncture points. When the flow of energy is disturbed, it can be determined by touching the body on any length of the channel. Acupuncture points become painful and often enlarged during illness. Your doctor may also check your heart rate (in three places: on the wrist, at the kuan and cun point).

  • Of course, the doctor may not necessarily carry out all of the above. Often, an interview combined with a thorough examination of the face or acupuncture points is enough. It all depends on the experience of the acupuncturist, the disease and the individual characteristics of the patient.
