    Common questions asked during a Acupuncture session

    Divider Line Style 2
    Here are examples of some questions asked during an Acupuncture exam:
    1. Are you more hot or cold?
    2. Do you have headaches?
    3. How is your energy level?
    4. Do you have ringing in your ears?
    These questions are not always associated with the main issue. Every symptom tells the acupuncturist what imbalances are occurring in your body and what organs they are associated with.
