Through individualized and delicate diagnostic techniques, Greg is able to efficiently treat deficiencies and excesses in your body that may be causing imbalances and poor health. All of AcuPoint Health Clinic’s acupuncture treatments are specifically tailored to the individual according to Greg’s diagnosis. He will first spend some time reviewing your medical history and talking with you about your health and any concerns you may have.
The major diagnostic techniques employed in determining the course of treatment are tongue and pulse evaluations. When evaluating your pulse, Greg is checking the state of your body by reading the different types of pulses through the palpation on the inside of your wrist. In Chinese Medicine, the tongue is seen as a reflection of the state of ones health, with specific areas representing certain organs and systems.
Herbs & Nutrition
Used for thousands of years, Chinese herbal therapies can be powerful and supportive additions to your treatment. Chinese Herbal Medicine (CHM) plays an important role in the practice of Traditional Chinese Medicine. All aspects of Traditional Chinese Medicine focus on restoring the balance of energy to the body and spirit to maintain health, treat disease, and address any medical conditions an individual may have. In this respect, herbal remedies are utilized with the goal of restoring balance by nourishing the body.
Many times the practitioner will prescribe a tea made from herbal extract powder. Each remedy is individually prescribed according to one’s constitution and diagnosis. The precise amount and specific herbs chosen depends upon each person’s consultation and is created to best address his or her unique health situation and any physical deficiencies, excesses, or imbalances found.
Since its first large scale uses in the 1980s, breast thermography has developed into an important tool in the fight against breast cancer. As a safe, comfortable and extremely sensitive procedure, thermography is used to detect both a pre-cancerous state of the breast and the earliest signs of breast cancer.
Sophisticated cameras and computer systems are used to measure heat from the surface of the breasts and produce an image that can be evaluated for abnormalities. Alterations in these images are caused when cellular changes increase blood flow, thus warming the breast. Because of thermography’s extreme sensitivity, these changes may be among the earliest signs of pre-cancerous and/or cancerous tissue formation.
