During the first consultation, the practitioner aims to determine the nature of the disharmony in the patient’s mind/body by careful questioning and observation. A detailed understanding is required of the patient’s symptoms, past medical and family history, lifestyle and diet, behaviour of all the systems in the body such as digestion and circulation, sleep patterns and emotional feelings. Diagnosis also includes examination of the tongue forits structure, colour and coating, and the wrist pulses, which are felt for rythm and strength.
What the practitioner is looking for is not isolated symptoms, but rather a pattern in which is woven a total picture of the patient. Having diagnosed the cause or causes of the problem, the points and appropriate methods of treatment are selected according to various rules governing the movement of energy flow in the body.
