Upon arrival for treatment Moshe will discuss with the patient his/her medical history. It is important to have a detailed medical history in order to provide an accurate diagnosis. According to Chinese medicine there is importance to all aspects of life including diet and lifestyle so a holistic understanding of the patient’s condition can be achieved. Moshe then performs unique examinations pertaining to the practice of Chinese medicine such as pulse taking, observing the tongue, and palpating the abdomen.
After completing the intake and coming up with a diagnosis, Moshe is ready to begin treatment. In an acupuncture treatment Moshe will insert sterile painless disposable needles into specific points. This procedure is not painful. Most patients report that they feel heat sensations, tingling or just the presence of the needle. Once all the needles are inserted most patients will have a very strong sense of well being as well as being very relaxed. The needles stay in place for about 20 minutes and then removed. There is no scaring.
The treatment may include supplemental herbal prescription, recommendations for dietary and lifestyle changes, breathing techniques, Cupping and Moxibustion.
