  Pulse Diagnosis

Energy moves from each of the 12 organs in your torso to specific positions on the radial artery, on the wrist below your thumb. The function and strength of each organ is evaluated by the quality and strength of the blood flow in those specific positions. The acupuncturist will place his/her fingers over the pulse on your wrist.

  • A normal, healthy pulse has moderate speed and strength and feels just like blood (of course!).
  • It is not fast or slow.
  • It is not excessive (pushing the fingers off the pulse) or deficient (difficult to feel).
  • Most importantly, the pulse does not have a quality other than that of blood.

Normal and healthy blood is viscous; it’s thicker than water, but not as thick as motor oil, for example.
In Oriental Medicine, there are 28 pulse qualities. One is normal, and 27 indicate problems.

Our Unique Style of Pulse Diagnosis

Chinese Pulse Diagnosis is considered the gold standard when it comes to knowing what is medically wrong with a patient.

What is Pulse Diagnosis? Simply put, it is interpreting the flow of blood in the radial artery at the wrist. In the hands of an expert practitioner, the pulse can reveal anatomical problems such as arthritis, fibromyalgia, insomnia, anxiety, depression, fatigue, chronic and acute pain, urinary tract infections, kidney stones, ovarian cists, bone spurs, gall stones, varicoceles, sinus infections, gastric or duodenal ulcers, coronary blockages and a host of other physical ailments.
