Level 1: Mastering the Basics

Course Information

We have all heard how vital pulse diagnosis is to the practice of Acupuncture and Chinese Medicine. Many of us have heard stories about how certain special practitioners can tell someone’s life story from the pulse, and use the pulse as guidance for “magical” treatments. Unfortunately, most of us get only a few hours of training in standard schools and do not receive anywhere near sufficient guidance to develop the confidence to use the pulse effectively in the clinic.

This course will provide you with simple and clear instruction and hands-on experience that will create a solid foundation from which to develop your pulse skills and prepare you for the more advanced courses to follow.

Topics covered include:

• Basic Pulse Skills and Techniques
• Identifying the 12 Primary Positions
• A simple approach to understanding and identifying pulse qualities
• Treating Exit-Entry blocks from the pulse
• Learning to use the pulse as a guide for treatment, and to evaluate your treatment effectiveness
• And much more!

Course Instructor

Dr. Reuven Freesman, D. TCM has been a teacher and practitioner of Chinese Medicine for nearly 15 years. The mystery and power of pulse diagnosis was one of the things that drew him to Chinese Medicine in the first place, and has fueled his ongoing study and development of this most ancient craft. Reuven has studied many different methods of pulse diagnosis with many different practitioners, but as a working pracitioner, Reuven has always been driven to simplify and boil down the most vital ingredients of what he has learned to make it easy to learn and most practical and applicable in a clinic setting. Reuven believes the ultimate test of this most ancient and beautiful approach is the degree to which it creates real, tangible benefit for our patients.
