What to Bring

Please fill out and bring with you the Patient Intake Form and the Consent Form as well as any information about your medical history that you think might be helpful.

How to Dress

It is best to wear loose-fitting, two-piece clothing that is easy to remove.

Traditional Diagnosis

The primary diagnostic tool the practioner uses is his sensory awareness. The intake exam will include a tongue diagnosis and a pulse diagnosis. Please do not drink any caffeine 3 hours before the visit and avoid any food with strong color, for example blueberries or strawberries. It is fine to have a light meal before the visit.
