Ross Rosen is one of, if not the most, brilliant people that I have ever met in my life. Practically everything that he does I support and I strongly recommend to you. In the Nei Jing over and over again they say that the superb diagnostic tool is the pulse; Ross is somebody that can deliver that to you.

Ross is a valued instructor of and a direct inheritor of my work and teaching. He is extremely observant and creative in his work, adding to our accumulated knowledge more than any other associate. Of great value is his ability to formulate the essence of Chinese medicine in simple terms accessible to the average person. Chinese medicine at its best, as practiced by Ross Rosen, is capable of discerning the disease process at a very early stage before it manifests an illness, therefore preventing disease, and above all capable of delineating and treating the individual who has the disease.

[Ross] has developed a very sophisticated methodology…that integrates this system with the traditional pulse system that he learned from Dr. Jeffey Yuen…He is one of the most informed practitioners and creative talented teachers of the Shen-Hammer pulse system and it gives me a joy to recommend him…as a speaker and teacher.

Ross Rosen has been studying with me since 2006 in all aspects of classical Chinese medicine. His tenacity and rigor in the learning and the grasping of the essences of Chinese medicine are highly commendable. More importantly, Ross demonstrates the same enthusiasm and devotion in teaching the art of this medicine and the heart of its profundity. He offers depth in his insights and conveys endless qi in the unraveling of the mysteries of Chinese medicine and healing.

Thank you so much for this weekend’s class. Almost 4 years out of school and I still struggled to find a context for pulse findings! CCPD changed my sense of loss to that of crucial discovery. I feel I’ve found a system that has given me solid footing, a way to asses the fundamental yet very complex diagnostic tool of pulse taking. What a relief. This system ought to be taught in every OM school – it is a gift deserving time and attention from current and future generations of Acupuncturists. Please thank Dr. Hammer for his life’s dedication, it will not be lost.

Am looking forward to the next class. Keep me posted.


I just finished the introductory level class with Ross Rosen on Contemporary Chinese Pulse Diagnosis (CCPD). Ross managed to relay a considerable amount of information in a relatively short time and with great care. Their patience and attention to detail was exemplary and showed incredible depth in understanding and synthesis and I was able to implement what I learned in my own practice the very next day. I would recommend this class with out reservation and much enthusiasm and look forward to future classes.

Taking the Contemporary Chinese Pulse Diagnosis weekend workshop with Ross added an entirely new depth and richness to our understanding of pulse and our pulse reading skills. CCPD is the most comprehensive, accurate, lucid and scientific method of pulse reading that we have ever come across. Never before have we had so much guidance, clarity and direction in defining pulse qualities and their significance. The subtlety, nuance and predictive accuracy of CCPD is mind-blowing. There is so much to learn in this system and yet with one weekend we were able to develop significantly enough to truly benefit our patients right away. We can’t wait to take another class!
