Caption: Oriental pulse diagnosis. Patient undergoing oriental pulse diagnosis. The hands of a Chinese medicine practitioner are finding the pulse by lightly pressing three fingers along the radial artery on the inside of the wrist. Different pulses are found by pressing a little deeper, and the procedure is then repeated on the other wrist, giving a total of twelve pulses. Each pulse is interpreted in terms of its strength and quality. On the basis of these results, the practitioner decides where the body's energy (Qi) imbalances lie and corrects these imbalances.
