A structured system of pulse assessment offers deep insight into a patient’s current internal status. Probing and dynamic pulses help identify where the body is holding pathogenic factors latent and the state of its resources to either contain or expel these factors. Assessing and treating with the compliment channels broadens the diagnostic picture of the pulses. Whereas the Zang Fu model and primary channels describe the production and distribution of resources and mediumship, Sinew, Luo, Divergent, and Eight Extraordinary channels describe the masterful triage system used to protect the organs and ultimately the heart from outside threats. Isolating where the body is holding pathology allows us to envision the best strategy to address it and restore health.

This series of three classes will introduce you to classical pulse taking and each of the Complement Channels as taught by Jeffrey Yuan and Ann Cecil-Sterman in step-by-step presentations. Classical pulse taking provides an organized system of listening to the patient’s inner being to help direct you to their needs in the current moment. The Complement Channels provide a means to assess the location of pathology in the body and move it back to the exterior. Together pulses and complement channels create a powerful diagnostic and treatment system. Participants will leave each section with skills that they can apply immediately in clinic.

While presented as a series, students may choose to take one, two or all three of the classes. There are no prerequisites. Please note that masks will be required while indoors.

  • Registration $350
  • JTS alumni/faculty $300
