Course Overview

This course will train practitioners to accurately read pulses, determining the degrees of excess or deficiency. They will develop, step by step, the ability to determine what a given patient’s “normal” pulse should feel like if they were balanced, healthy, and “normal”. Then, they will learn to feel what is actually there. From this, appropriate treatment strategies can be carried out.


Students will have the means to know, by pulse change, if their treatments were successful or not. Several essential treatment strategies will be presented, including Exit/Entry Blocks, imbalances between paired Officials (Organs/Functions) within an element, and transfers of energy using the K’e and Sheng Cycles.


  • To accurately learn the pulse positions of all 12 Officials.

  • To learn to use the extreme tip of the finger for pulse taking.

  • To learn pulse diagnosis in stages.

  • To learn to detect and clear Exit/Entry Blocks.

  • To learn how to create balance and harmony by simple transfers of energy.


  • 0 hrs - 30 min

    The first portion of the seminar will present the “golden rules” of pulse taking and the pulse positions of each Organ/Function. Presentation of pulse taking practice will be presented in stages: first comparing paired Officials within an Element, then comparing in relation to one Official, finally learning to determine a patient’s “norm” or ideal pulse, and comparing all Officials to that.

  • 30 min - 1 hrs

    The second portion will discuss several essential treatment strategies, which can only be determined by accurate pulse diagnosis.

  • *CEU/CPD Approvals

    Some accreditation bodies have course approval expirations. If the approval expires, you will see a notice next to the name with a date of expiration: "[Until YYYY/MM/DD]". Please factor this date into your own renewal deadline. If an approval expires, you will be able to request that it is renewed and we will submit it for you within 2 business days. Renewals normally come back to us after 30 days.

    If your accreditation body is not listed under the "Approved" section, you may find it under the "Pending" section. That means that it is either currently pending approval, or that it is available for you to request: "[Upon Request]". New course approvals usually come back to us after 45 days.
