Tongue Diagnosis in Chinese Medicine (9780939616190)

Tongue Diagnosis in Chinese Medicine

ISBN: 9780939616190
Publisher: Eastland Press
Binding: Hardcover

by Giovanni Maciocia

Examination of the tongue, like the pulse, is one of the principal diagnostic methods in traditional Chinese medicine. This book--newly revised in 1995--systematically describes each of the primary characteristics of the tongue (body color, shape and coating) and their significance in the clinic. It traces the historical development of tongue diagnosis and its relationship to externally- contracted disorders and the eight principals.

Featured in this revised edition are 59 color plates and accompanying case histories from the author's own practice. Other aspects of tongue diagnosis newly described in this edition include the integration of tongue and pulse diagnosis; the use of the tongue in diagnosing emotional problems; tongue diagnosis and herbal treatment; the tongue in prognosis; and special considerations regarding tongue diagnosis in children.

Still the Best Tongue Diagnosis Book

This book is one of the Great Man’s earlier, and cheaper, offerings (being first published in 1987). As expected from Maciocia, there is a huge amount of detail with entire chapters devoted to the three key tongue diagnosis areas: tongue body colour, tongue body shape and tongue coating. A number of simple black & white drawings decorate the text and are generally clear and very useful. There is also an informative section containing case histories.

There are quite a few books on tongue diagnosis around but this one remains the best, even after more than 20 years in print.
