Description

Product Description

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.

Review

"A thorough, clinically oriented exposition of tongue diagnosis." -- American Journal of Acupuncture

"Will undoubtedly be the standard textbook on tongue diagnosis for many years to come." -- The Journal of Chinese Medicine

I found this book a very nice description of the principles and practices of the tongue diagnosis in Chinese Medicine. It also provides a good example on how to describe in decent English the concepts and terms in Chinese Medicine. I''m not a medical scientist but part of my research is related with Chinese Medicine. I found this book a good reference, especially when I need write about Chinese Medicine in English in the future.

This is a great book for TCM students. It has helped clarify for me how to recognize patterns by tongue reading. Maciocia is very easy to understand. He writes in plain English in a way that makes it very easy to grasp concepts. Highly recommend this book if you are learning Tongue Reading and how they relate to TCM patterns.

I know there is a book out there that has a lot more pictures. I debated about getting that one instead of this because comparatively speaking, this has much fewer, but this is definitely the superior choice. The text is very informative which makes the pictures that it does have more meaningful. I am not a TCM practitioner, so keep that in perspective. I am really glad I bought this book over some others. It explains a lot without overwhelming or confusing me.
