This article presents a diagnostic system that utilises channel palpation based on the author’s understanding of the Huang Di Nei Jing (Yellow Emperor’s Inner Classic), Shang Han Lun (Discussion of cold-induced disorders) and Nan Jing (Classic of Difficulties). It provides a practical approach to the diagnosis of clinical disorders and leads to precise and effective treatment.
The article explains how channel palpation is applied in the diagnosis of dermatological disorders, in which symptoms, channel palpation findings, pattern differentiation and treatment are integrated in an organic unity. Several successful clinical cases are presented to illustrate the theory.
