Any treatment in our clinic starts from the pulse diagnosis. This diagnosis shows condition of different parts of capillary net known as meridians of acupuncture. These meridians have function of antenna which receives electromagnetic waves created by rotation of the earth. Pulse diagnosis shows which part of this antenna is out of tune, so acupuncture treatment would be applied to normalize function of affected meridians. Restored reaction of this capillary net will leave the body in the best state for improvement.
