Acupuncture diagnosis

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

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

The doctor will then smell and hear the patient. In this case, he will pay attention to the manner of speaking, the volume of the voice and its clarity. The speaking strength may be related to the excess or deficiency of qi energy. An important aspect is to examine the breathing pattern, whether it is fluid, whether the patient has any difficulties or is coughing. Your doctor will judge your health based on your smell, especially your mouth and sweat.

An important element of Chinese diagnostics is thorough questioning of the patient about his living conditions, age, work, and the atmosphere at work and at home. The interview allows the doctor to establish the onset and course of the disease. While the questions may seem strange at times (e.g. how often do we wake up at night when we feel sleepy during the day), they should be answered as thoroughly as possible. People are very different from each other and something else can make them sick. Good diagnosis means choosing the perfect therapy for a specific patient.

It is also important to touch the skin, especially along the meridians and acupuncture points. When the energy flow is disturbed, it can be determined by touching the body along any length of the channel. During illness, acupuncture points become painful and often enlarged. The doctor can also check the heart rate (in three places: on the wrist, at the kuan point and at the cun point).

Of course, the doctor does not necessarily have to do all of the above. Often, an interview with a careful examination of the face or acupuncture points is enough. It all depends on the acupuncturist’s experience, disease and the individual characteristics of the patient.
