Examination of the tongue, like the pulse, is one of the principal  diagnostic methods in traditional Chinese medicine. This book 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.
