The art of pulse-taking is a fundamental and vital skill in Chinese Medicine and yet it is one of the least understood. Modern training programmes are often quite limited in their access to masters of pulse-taking and consequently, students often express that they graduate without any significant skill in this crucial diagnostic tool.
This course aims to give students and graduates access to a pulse-taking intensive to help address this issue. We will visit several outreach healthcare clinics to give us an opportunity to palpate a variety of pulses indicative of a diverse range of pathologies. Under the expertise of Stephen Schleipher, participants will be closely coached in how to interpret the pulses and improve their precision in pulse-taking.
Further to this, students will participate in Sherwood Cottage Hospital clinic days with mornings spent doing consultations and treatments, continuing the focus on pulse-taking, with the afternoons dedicated to doing thorough case analyses of the morning’s clinic.
This course is for qualified acupuncturists only.
