Preparing for Your First Visit
Please be prepared to stay for at least an hour. Make sure that you have eaten some form of protein at least a half-hour before.
As part of our diagnosis we ask to look at your tongue. It is believed, in Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM), that the condition of your tongue can give information about your health. Thus, the day of your initial treatment, please do not brush your tongue.
