Shen-Hammer Pulse Diagnosis

with Tracy Soltesz, February 24-25, 2024

Workshop Information

In this hands-on intensive course*, we will develop a rich, foundational understanding of the Shen-Hammer pulse diagnosis tradition and the skills to palpate. Students will learn the terminology unique to the Shen-Hammer pulse system including the five categories of common qualities while beginning to develop their palpatory skills through hands-on exploration of the large segments of the pulse and the 28 individual primary and complementary positions. Certified pulse instructors provide direct and extensive hands-on feedback!

*Approved for 14 NCCAOM PDA credits
