Diagnosis in Han-dynasty was primarily done by taking the pulse. Every formula can be identified through one or more pulse patterns presenting in the patient. Though many pulses are mentioned in the Jingui Yaolue, crucial detail is often hidden, and it is as if this knowledge is merely implicitly present, as if it were embedded. Therefore, the Tian Heming Canonical Formula lineage’s main strength and contribution to the field of Chinese medicine to have made this advanced knowledge on pulse diagnosis crystal clear and evident. This knowledge has never been recorded in any book, but was rather transmitted orally from Dr. Tian Heming through Dr. Zeng Rongxiu to Dr. Arnaud Versluys. The latter of which has been teaching this material around the world in more systematized and structured format since a few years.
Note regarding the Shanghan Lun and Jingui Yaolue Pulse Seminars: due to the proprietary and complex nature of these seminars, they cannot be registered for individually and can only be taken as part of the total sequence. The pulse seminars are open for individual registration only to Diplomates of Canonical Chinese Medicine already certified by our institute who wish to retake the seminar.
