The Shen Yang Chinese Herbal Medicine Clinic opened for business on Saturday 14th of April.
The proprietor, Gui Jie Wang of Shen Yang province, China, has 14 years experience of health care, working in both small clinic, and larger hospital environments.
On offer at the Clinic are massage, acupuncture and herbal remedies. During the first consultation, the practitioner aims to determine the nature of the disharmony in the patient's mind/body by careful questioning and observation. A detailed understanding is required of the patient's symptoms, past medical and family history, lifestyle and diet, behaviour of all the systems in the body such as digestion and circulation, sleep patterns, and emotional feelings. Diagnosis also includes examination of the tongue for its structure, colour and coating, and of the pulses at the wrists, which are felt for quality, rhythm and strength.
