The pulse of the complaint pattern addressed here is detected in the left hand.
The position, where to feel the pulse, is shown in the graphic below.



At first you test the so-called "deep" pulse.
This is characterized by a relatively strong (but not unpleasant) sensed pressure to the point shown above "kidney".

Attention is paid to the speed, the strength, and the quality of the pulse.

In the table above, the following pulse-grades are used: slowly, quickly, empty, weak, tensed.

The pulse is:
significant slow when it is below 60 beats per minute. It is fast with more than 80 beats per minute.
tensed if it feels like a guitar string, so relatively short and concise.
weak if it is barely felt in the depth.
blank if it is weak at all three positions. (freeze, weakness). Qi can move blood only inadequately.
