Pulse diagnosis is the ancient Ayurveda science of detecting the existing status of a person’s physiological and psychological status based on Doshas. Nadi or pulse is that vital flow of energy or life that courses through body primarily in blood vessels, and enables the Vaidya to feel the way the blood spurts from the heart. Pulse reading helps an experienced Vaidya to know about Doshas, Subdoshas and their interaction with Dhatus. Pulse reading is to be learnt under the guidance of an experienced Vaidya through practice, and concentration. Vaidya is able to diagnose the imbalances within a person’s body by touching, pressing and feeling the different combinations of the pulse.
