Diagnosis

Don't be surprised when Nikki asks to look at your tongue. She asks everyone. The human tongue will show a lot about what is going on inside your body. Your tongue, pulse and many other clues all aid in making a diagnosis for the patient and are essential in helping to form a treatment plan.

Information is gathered in order to make a diagnosis.  A practitioner of TCM will use four methods (looking, listening, asking and palpation).  By using a combination of a patients signs and symptoms the practitioner can determine the patterns of disharmony which requires rebalancing.
