Ayurvedic Pulse Assessment

Ayurvedic pulse assessment is one of the eight “assessment methods” a practitioner may use while taking a patient’s case and is an extensive art form in and of itself.  By examining the pulse, an Ayurvedic practitioner can determine the constitution, state of imbalance, and area or manner in which imbalance is occurring in the patient.

A seasoned practitioner can read the mental constitution, imbalances in mental constitution, imbalances in the tissues and channels, and even determine your current emotional state.  The art of reading a pulse takes many years and decades to develop and sages have not been unknown to assess an individual’s medical history through pulse alone.
