Your acupuncturist may use an intricate system of pulse and tongue diagnosis, palpation of point and meridians, medical history and other signs and symptoms to create a composite Oriental medical diagnosis and formulate an individual treatment plan. Then you acupuncturist  start acupuncture treatment or with other related therapies such as cupping, acupressure or moxabustion. Herbs can be a powerful adjunct to acupuncture care.
