Pulse Taking

In Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM), pulse diagnosis is a nuanced and integral part of assessing a patient's overall health. Unlike in Western medicine, where the pulse is generally examined for rate and rhythm, TCM practitioners consider various other qualities like depth, width, and strength. These readings are obtained from three specific positions on each wrist, corresponding to different organs and systems within the body. The interpretation of the pulse can provide valuable insights into imbalances and disharmonies, guiding the practitioner in tailoring a personalized treatment plan, which may include acupuncture, herbal remedies, and lifestyle adjustments. Pulse diagnosis is a skill that takes years to master but offers a deep, holistic view of a patient's well-being.
