Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
"Pulse Diagnosis: A Clinical Guide is a really useful addition to the literature in the realm of naming and understanding the basic parameters of pulse diagnosis. It is written by two practictioners of Chinese medicine in Sydney who clearly have much experience of teaching pulses, and starts right from the beginning with simple directions for correct placement of fingers. Each aspect of taking the pulse is illustrated with excellent diagrams and tables, and should be easily understood by the beginner. Although much of this information is not new, it is extremely detailed, and collated in a readable way that students should find approachable and clinically useful." Jourrnal of Chinese Medicine, Number 87, June 2008
