Acupuncturist normally check the persons pulse and inspect the tongue colour shape, then following the diagnosis, Acupuncturist start giving patients treatments.
The reason for this is that the tongue is the only muscle you can see outside the body, and when you look at the tongue it can tell you what is happening inside, feeling the pulse will tell body energy unbalanced situation, then understand what is happen in the body. As the needles go in people say they feel it a little bit, but it does not really hurt. The treatment uses between 5-20 needles place around the body according to the acupuncture points and how big area affected.
Once inserted the patient will rest for around 30-50 minutes. The people felt very relaxed and good way during and after the treatment. Acupuncture can be used for treating conditions such all kind of pain and sports injuries, women problem, pregnancy issues and skin problem, emotions issues and general health unbalance problem.
