This handbook summaries the key elements of Chinese Pulse Diagnosis: A Contemporary Approach in a portable edition. It is the result of the very hard work, by many practitioners, of extracting the essentials from each area of this subject. it offers a clear and practical path toward a better understanding of traditional pulse diagnosis, while recasting its interpretation in the context of our own times.
Oriental diagnosis is based on the view that the way we walk, our posture, the shape of our features, the sound of our voice all our external expressions are not separate from our internal state of health. Individuals represent the accumulated history of the condition of their parents, the environment they live in and the food they eat. Diagnosis therefore becomes more than a technique for helping the sick: it is a means to understand ourselves, our lives and our relationship to the universe
