Inspection of the tongue is an important part of revealing the pattern of patient's qi imbalance
Chinese tongue diagnosis is an essential tool used by traditional Chinese medicine practitioners. Your tongue plays a unique role in understanding your body’s constitution; it is the only organ that is both interior and exterior. When your tongue is examined, the docotor systematically looks at very specific characteristics to learn much about the interior of your body and the state of your health. Tongues differ from one person to the next and, although people probably take them for granted, they have a lot to tell the Traditional Chinese Medicine doctor.
