Dr Ryan uses Chinese Pulse Diagnosis as an integral part of his assessment of acupuncture patients. It is used before, during and at the end of a treatment session to determine both the treatment to be used and its effectiveness.
These include: * 5 Element Constitutional Acupuncture * Channel Acupuncture and Channel Palpation * Traditional Chinese Medicine Acupuncture * Chinese Scalp Acupuncture (CSA) * Auricular (Ear) Acupuncture * Abdominal Acupuncture
One of the features of the acupuncture provided at Dr Ryan’s clinics is the combining of styles and the use of Chinese pulse diagnosis results in a treatment regime that allows for minimum needle retention times.
The use of Chinese pulse diagnosis allows for the needles to be removed as soon as they have triggered a change in the pulse reading. There will be an accompanying change in the symptoms. CSA can be effective in treating pain and numbness and poor movement function of the limbs. It is commonly used around the world to treat patients suffering from the effects of stroke and illnesses such as Parkinson’s disease and Multiple Sclerosis, It has many applications in practice.
It can be very effective in the treatment of range of motion restrictions and/or pain in joints such as the shoulder, elbow, neck, knee and hip.
