Initial evaluation includes; range of motion testing, pulse diagnosis, abdominal diagnosis, palpation of points, visual inspection of skin for diagnostic purposes, metabolic assessment (western syndromes), subjective symptom evaluation, eastern and western diagnosis, acupuncture treatment. Acupuncture modality is Japanese style, which I have found to be the most effective, which entails the use of very thin needles, shallow insertion, and shorter retention time. I evaluate the length of retention time, and points through pulse diagnosis, and other above diagnostics/ I also use a lot of Taiwanese point systems, and trigger point systems.
