What is Pulse Diagnosis & How Does it Work?
Pulse diagnosis is a diagnostic method that has been used in Chinese medicine for centuries. It is based on the ancient principle of “qi” or life energy.
Pulse diagnosis has been around since the Han dynasty (206 BC – 220 AD) and can be performed by feeling the radial artery at various points on the wrist. The practitioner will then examine the rhythm, strength, and width of each pulse to determine whether there are any abnormalities or deficiencies that need to be addressed.
What is the Purpose of a Pulse Diagnostic Examination?
Pulse diagnosis is an important diagnostic tool in Chinese Medicine. It is used to determine the condition of a person’s body and to decide on a treatment plan.
The purpose of the pulse examination is to assess the health of the internal organs, muscles, and bones. The practitioner will feel for any abnormalities in different aspects of the patient’s pulse. They can then identify which organs need to be strengthened or toned and which have become diseased or stagnant.
