Demonstration of taking pulse

Each and every consultation with our practitioners involves them feeling your pulses.

But why do they do this?

The pulse is a very important diagnostic tool in TCM. As you can see in the photo above, Nick has 3 fingers placed over the pulse. This is because of the three sections of the pulse, Cun (front), Guan (middle) and Chi (rear).

Each section relates to a different organ and so we feel for the rate, length, strength and quality of the pulse to give us insight into the function of these organs.
