A wonderful experience lecturing and demonstrating Shen-Hammer pulse at BUCMs Characteristic Therapy Workshop for Traditional Chinese Medicine. It was an honor to stand in for Dr. Hammer and be included and welcomed as a representative of the Menghe lineage. A special treat to spend the day with Dr. Ding Yie, great grandson of Ding Ganren, and nephew to Ding Jiwan, Dr. John Shen’s teacher.
Very happy to announce my upcoming book, “Heart Shock: An Approach to Diagnosing and Treating Trauma with Shen-Hammer and Classical Chinese Medicine” to be published by Singing Dragon publications. “Heart Shock” will present in detail the myriad components of trauma, establish primary, secondary and tertiary treatment strategies and merge the Shen-Hammer and Classical understanding of this important topic. Diagnosis via a comprehensive presentation of each of the channel systems (sinew, luo, primary, divergent, eight extras) will be provided, as will additional concepts such as gu and gui, Dr. Shen’s nervous system, pulse instruction for all the channel systems, etc. all with extensive treatment options with acupuncture, herbal medicine and essential oil therapies. Thanks to Claire Lindsey Wilson and Singing Dragon for their enthusiasm with this project. Stay tuned, anticipated publication end of this year, early next….
Ross has dedicated his entire career to the study and application of pulse diagnosis. He is a senior certified instructor in the Shen-Hammer lineage (aka Contemporary Chinese Pulse Diagnosis) and serves on the Board of Directors of Dragon Rises, Inc. as well as the Contemporary Oriental Medicine Foundation, tasked with preserving and disseminating the work of Dr. Leon Hammer.
He has published numerous articles within these disciplines and is a contributor to the Handbook of Contemporary Chinese Pulse Diagnosis. Ross has also spent years dedicated to the study and practice of Classical Chinese Medicine (including Classical pulse diagnosis) under 88th generation Daoist priest Jeffrey Yuen.
In this webinar, Ross demystifies the pulse as a prognosticator of future illness. He teaches pulse qualities and configurations that signify impending:
Inflammatory processes associated with atherosclerosis and hormonal disorders
Blood, lymph and radiation toxicity
Debilitating illness such as cancers and autoimmune diseases
Ross also discusses the importance of deciphering systemic messages from the pulse and how to create meaningful treatment and management strategies. In contradistinction to diagnosing patterns or isolated findings, Ross gives attention to pulse findings that relate to significant health trends, including the extreme vulnerability and instability associated with the separation of yin and yang.
