Your practitioner will review your completed Health Form asking you a series of questions about your main concerns, your current health and health history, look at your tongue and check your pulse. Tongue and pulse diagnosis are unique to Chinese medicine. This full examination allows your practitioner to detect what the underlying root cause of your health concern is. Once the practitioner corrects the cause, balances the body and promotes optimal health, the symptoms you experience will resolve.

“Katrina was a fantastic resource during my pregnancy and was so skilled at providing acupressure treatment for me. She even taught my husband pressure points to ease discomfort during labour. Everyone at the clinic is so friendly and it’s a very warm and welcoming environment. And the food is delicious! Charleston is a phenomenal chef and so personable. What’s Good is just what Oakville needs!“
