Traditional Indian medicine Ayurveda

In Ayurveda, advocates claim that by taking a pulse examination, humoral imbalances such as the three Doshas (Vata, Pitta, and Kapha) can be diagnosed.[1] The ayurvedic pulse also claims to determine the balance of prana, tejas, and ojas.

Ayurvedic pulse measurement is done by placing index, middle and ring finger on the wrist. The index finger is placed below the wrist bone on the thumb side of the hand (radial styloid). This finger represents the Vata dosha. The middle finger and ring finger are placed next to the index finger and represents consequently the Pitta and Kapha doshas of the patient. Pulse can be measured in the superficial, middle, and deep levels thus obtaining more information regarding energy imbalance of the patient.
