Second Pillar of Chinese medicine is Acupuncture. Acupuncturists complete their evaluations by gathering your chief complaint, asking up to 10 questions, observing your tongue, and feeling pulses at the wrist. Then, after evaluation and determining your pattern of imbalance, they place very fine filiform needles into specific points on the body. Stimulating these points is helps treat the patient’s condition. Many of the body’s systems respond to acupuncture, and it can treat physical pain as well as emotional stress.
