The Art of Pulse Diagnosis provides the reader a detailed step-by-step method for doing Chinese Medical pulse diagnosis. The book shows detailled descriptions of pulse qualities and images. It describes relations to organ function, the concept of dynamic and directional pulses as well as pulses for all the individual meridians/channels. You will find in total over 100 diagrams and paintings of the different pulses.
Heiner Fruehauf says about this book: “All holistic systems of medicine contain at their core a deep awareness that the human body consists of more than just fluids and tissue and bone. Chinese medicine specifically views the body as a hierarchically organized fusion of spirit, energy and matter. No treatment should ever be administered without considering the body’s energetic planes first. Among the various modalities of Chinese medicine, pulse diagnosis once reigned supreme as a direct way to perceive energetic imbalances. This book represents a practical and sensitive introduction to the complex topic of Oriental pulse diagnosis that makes this waning art accessible. Another valuable contribution to the profession by Ann Cecil-Sterman!”
