Pulse Reading Diagnosis

A skilled practitioner is expected to diagnose the abnormality present in the body by reading the pulse of the patient.



Pulse Reading

When the doctor has examined the tongue, it is time for pulse diagnosis. The patient stretches out her wrists or lays them on a table. The doctor will use three fingers to take the patient's pulse at three positions on each wrist, using first gentle then stronger pressure to feel in depth.
