This will help us to regulate the organs’ function through acupuncture points. Tongue diagnosis: tongue diagnosis is important as it is the only internal organ that we can see. Tongue reflects the health and functioning of the other internal organs. Observation of the tongue is based on four main items. The color of the tongue body, the shape, the coating and the moisture. Each area is also related to an internal organ. Pulse Diagnosis: In a sense, pulse diagnosis is like the “MRI” of traditional medical systems.
