Eastern diagnosis

Listening to the pulse is occupying a central place in traditional Chinese diagnosis. For the simple reason that in ancient China it was considered inappropriate to undress in front of a doctor, it has developed intelligent methods of diagnosis through examination of reachable parts of the patient’s body. Pulse diagnosis is carried out mainly in the radial artery at the wrist, at the points which correspond to a specific internal organ. Pulse is measured by the depth, frequency, rhythm and other characteristics.
Palpation of points and channels: each channel (meridian) passes through a certain path, and connects to corresponding  internal organ. By adding pressure on the sensitive spot of the channel it can evaluate the condition of the organ and reveal which organ is the source of the imbalance causing the symptoms of the disease.
Diagnosis by tongue: all parts of the tongue are associated with certain internal organs and parts of the body. Their condition is assessed by color and the characteristics of mucous cover in all related areas of the tongue.
