The coating, the shape, texture and color of the tongue show acute and / or chronic health deficits.
Based on the pulse, which can have more than 20 qualities (high, low, tense, rolling, etc.), the TCM therapists gain a comprehensive insight into the individual state of mind.
The anamnestic conversation, the general overall impression, the tone of the voice, the complexion or even the handshake provide further important information for an individual and holistic diagnosis. Chinese medicine assumes that so-called pathogenic factors (see diagram) can influence the body.
In a joint dialogue, the therapist works out whether these disease-causing factors apply to the patient.
