What Tongue Type Are You?

You might be surprised when your acupuncturist asks you to stick out your tongue at your first visit! 

It's actually very helpful for us to take a look at your tongue to determine what is going on systemically in your body.  Everyone's tongue is unique! Based on what we see, your acupuncturist will create a customized treatment plan to help you with energy, sleep, digestive problems, etc. 

Take a look at this chart to determine your tongue type.  Most patients will be a combination of 2-3 of these tongue types.  When you make your appointment at EVOLVE Acupuncture & Wellness, we will discuss this in more detail and confirm your findings.
