Patients are first asked questions about their medical history and their current condition. They are then diagnosed using Traditional Chinese Medicine Diagnostic Methods. This involves observing the eyes, face and tongue and the taking of the pulse on the radial artery of the wrist. The appropriate acupuncture points are then chosen.  The needles are inserted by the students under the supervision of the tutors. If it is relevant to the patients condition then Chinese herbal medicine may be prescribed.
