In your first, one hour herbal consult, your practitioner will take a comprehensive health history and allow you to speak about your specific health concerns. Your practitioner will look at your tongue and take your pulse in order to form a Chinese medical diagnosis.
Your practitioner may choose to examine the information collected after your session thus you would not leave with an herbal formula on the same day as your consultation. An herbal prescription would be prepared for you to pick up within the week of your consultation.
Each follow up herbal session is half an hour. During this time your herbalist would again take your pulses and look at your tongue. The herbalist will also want feedback from you in regards to the improvement of you symptoms. If a refill of you prescription is needed the practitioner will provided that for you that day.
