Course Overview

This one-hour recorded lecture illuminates pulse interpretation from early classic delineation to modern pulse masters. This single pulse position is used to explore the wealth of practitioner’s own capacities. Words and pictures can all be expanded to provide an explanation of the feeling of the layered qualities of the pulse beat. A song of the soul, a person’s pulse weaves in information about the Divergent channels process, the Luo vessels, the Sinew Channels, the Ying/Blood/nourishing qi, the protective Wei qi, the deep Yuan qi and extra channels, signals of the day of ovulation, and an unborn baby’s gender.

Course Objectives

  • To familiarize the practitioner with various evolutions in classic pulse diagnostic interpretation.
  • To explain the various levels in the pulse, and the distinct information at each level.
  • To emphasize the strength of each Chinese Medicine practitioner’s individual interpretation of what information they feel.
