Four TCM Diagnostic Methods

1. Observation
Our TCM experts carefully observe the patient by checking the overall physical
appearance, including physique, body movements, facial complexion and
expressions, as well as the colour and consistency of the tongue (including teeth
marks), which is a principal diagnostics part in TCM.


2. Hearing and smelling
According to TCM, the smell and sound of a human body are important
indicators of a patient’s wellbeing and are linked to organic functions. With this
in mind, our TCM specialists examine the smell of a patient’s breath and general
body odour, as well as the sound of her/his voice and breathing.

3. Interrogation
Following TCM’s holistic medical approach, this method emphasises on the
interrogation of the patient, taking her/his medical history, daily lifestyle, social
and professional environment, as well as special characteristics, habits and
preferences into account.


4. Pulse taking
Pulse taking is another principal diagnostics part in TCM. The pulse is measuredby feeling the radial artery in different places on each arm. The examinationfocuses on the rhythm, strength and volume, as well as on other pulse qualities,indicating certain health components and disease patterns.
