Caption: Acupuncturist examining a patient's tongue, an important diagnostic measure in traditional Chinese medicine. The tongue is thought to mirror the state of the body, with different parts representing various organs. The tip mirrors the head and emotional problems, the middle part reflects problems in the heart, lungs and stomach and the rear and edges show the state of the abdominal organs.
