Master the Art of Diagnosis: Dive Deeper into Diagnosis With East Asian Medicine

Refine Your Diagnostic Skills with Comprehensive Training in Tongue and Pulse Diagnosis Techniques

When we take the pulses we are not just able to feel for their general volume and quality. The pulses are messages from the officials as to how they are functioning in all respects. We can feel the state of an official’s mind and spirit as well as its physical state. The pulses extend our understanding of the relationships between the elements and officials.

Client stories provide essential information for understanding their experience. Clients have their own perspective and interpretation of this information, making it subjective.

Objective tools like tongue and pulse diagnosis help us determine the right treatment for the body’s needs.

By having more legs to our ‘diagnostic stool’ we have a more solid and assured place to rest our diagnosis and treatment plans.

These tools also allow us to observe the effects of our treatments, often before the presenting symptoms themselves can change. This is especially important when supporting client with more chronic conditions.

2024 Calibration classes are in mid February and late August.
