In case your appointment is close to a meal time, we suggest you to have something light to eat so that you don’t receive treatment on an empty stomach.
During your first appointment, we will check your body by traditional Chinese medicine diagnosis methods, including your pulse and tongue. We recommend the following things to avoid a few hours before your appointment:
- Avoid excessive tea, coffee, alcohol;
- Avoid strenuous exercise and emotional upsets;
- Do not brush or clear your tongue coating.
The above can disturb your circulation and symptoms, tire or over-stimulate your body or change the natural appearance of your tongue.
Don’t worry though if any of the above happens, simply mention them to your practitioner so it can be taken into account to achieve the most accurate diagnosis.
