Course Description

Differential diagnosis is the essential key of a good result from TCM treatment. Traditional Chinese Medicine emphasises on the importance of the four diagnostic methods,  namely the inspection, listening and smelling, questioning and Palpation, in achieving a successful differential diagnosis of TCM. However, unlike pulse palpation which has drawn so much attention over hundreds of years, palpating on the body and meridians has been a hidden treasure for too long. This lecture is to re-discover the role of meridian palpation, the practical procedure and strategy of meridian palpating diagnosis, the integration of conventional pulse/ tongue diagnosis and meridian palpation. Finally we will explore some case studies to further comprehend the meridian palpation.
