Tongue and pulse analysis is one of the most widely used assessment techniques in natural medicine. It is part of traditional Western medicine, traditional Chinese medicine (TCM) and Ayurvedic medicine. The tongue is examined for size, color, coating, creases, markings, blood vessels, and other remarkable characteristics that may reflect conditions of imblance in the body. The pulse strength, width of the blood vessel, arterial tension and other factors are examined in addition to the pulse rate tested by medical doctors. In TCM, the pulse is felt in three different locations and at two depths on each wrist to assess the health of the twelve different organ systems or meridians.
