Diagnosis

In determining the pattern of disharmony, the acupuncturist needs a detailed understanding of the patient's lifestyle, diet, work, medical history, emotional states, etc.

The diagnosis can include discussion, observation and examination. What the physician is looking for is not symptoms in isolation, but rather how they build up to form a whole picture.
