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.
Excited and honored to have been invited to speak and present on the Shen-Hammer pulse system at BUCM’s (Beijing University of Chinese Medicine) Characteristic Therapy of Traditional Chinese Medicine conference and to represent the Menghe-Ding lineage with Dr. Ding Yie (great grandson of Ding Ganren and Professor & Chief Physician of Chinese Medicine at Long-Hua Hospital affiliated to Shanghai University of TCM)
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.
