 Tongue Diagnosis in Chinese Medicine (View larger image)

Examination of the tongue, like the pulse, is one of the principal diagnostic methods in TCM. This book - newly revised in 1995 - systematically describes each of the primary characteristics of the tongue (body colour, shape, and coating) and their significance in the clinic. It traces the historical development of tongue diagnosis and its relationship to externally contracted disorders and the eight principles.

Featured in this revised edition are 59 colour plates and accompanying case histories from the author’s own practice. Other aspects of tongue diagnosis newly described in this edition include the integration of the tongue and pulse diagnosis; the use of the tongue in diagnosing emotional problems; tongue diagnosis and herbal treatment; the tongue in prognosis; and special consideration regarding tongue diagnosis in children.
