6 Weekend Pulse Program

Each Weekend can be taken individually.
One can begin with Part 1 Weekend 1 or Part 2 Weekend 3

Part 1 (weekends 1-2):
Fundamentals of Pulse Diagnosis & Exploring the Whole Pulse

·      Introduction to Pulse Diagnosis (positioning of the patient and practitioner, calibration of pressure and hand positions, overview of the system)

·      The power of the pulse as a diagnostic tool: assessing past, present and future

·      The large pulse segments: assessing the whole pulse with both hands and the pulse on left and right sides

·      Assessing the pulse at 5 different levels of depth: Wei, Ying, Yuan and the adjustment levels

·      The 5-8 pulse parameters: In depth study of rate (rhythm, stability), depth, width, force (volume), shape

·      The study of 35 pulse qualities: The 28 traditional qualities plus new, commonly found, and clinically relevant additions

Part 2 (weekends 3-4):
Static & Dynamic Pulses

·      The individual positions (Cun-Guan-Chi): common and rare qualities

·      Extra positions: feeling the pulse between and adjacent to the Cun, Guan and Chi positions

·      Dynamic Pulses: assessing the relationships between the organs and key functional dynamics of the individual organs

·      Cross referencing the Dynamic Pulse findings with the Static Pulse findings

·      The San Jiao Pulse: assessing the crucial difference between “loss of latency” and a “healing crisis”

·      The PC/Xinbaoluo/Xinzhu and the HT-KI Axis

Part 3 (weekends 5-6): Putting it all Together: Comprehensive Diagnosis & Treatment Planning

·      Channel System Pulses (Eight Extraordinary Vessels, Divergent Channels, Luo Vessels and Sinew Channels)

·      Physiognomy & Palmistry: supplemental diagnosis using the ear, hand and face

·      Diagnostic integration and treatment planning: creating a comprehensive treatment plan
