Model of Health Outline
Traditional acupuncture has a wide scope of practice and a unique model of health, illness, assessment, treatment, and management. Based on these concepts a professional acupuncturist operates.
From a traditional Chinese medicine (TCM) perspective taking a detailed and specialised acupuncture case history, using pulse and tongue examination helps determine your presentation and the type of acupuncture treatment you require. This process is an integral component in the assessment, treatment, and management of the patient and is an ongoing process related to outcome.
During your first consultation, the acupuncturist will gain a thorough understanding of your condition, general health, and problem. Based on all the information received the acupuncturist puts together your treatment plan, based on a shared understanding and starts the treatment process. The acupuncturist and acupuncturist and patient review outcomes together at each session.
