Neoclassical Pulse Diagnosis: Acupuncture and Herbs with Will Morris-Weekend 1

October 21-22, 2017

Dr. Will Morris

After my teacher, John HF Shen passed in 2001, I went into a period of deep deconstruction of everything I had been taught in order to gain insight and discover my own truths around this beautiful tradition. This period resulted in the school of thought I call NeoClassical pulse diagnosis. That reconstruction of classical lore was made possible by my exposure to the teachings of John HF Shen. 

Objectives - Upon successful completion of this module, learners will be able to:

  • identify the 8EV pulses
  • identify the 6 channel pulses
  • identify the 5 seasonal pulses and contextualize them in the body and with the seasons
  • use the learned pulse methods to construct meaningful and appropriate treatments using herbal medicine and acupuncture

Will Morris Neoclassical Pulse Diagnosis: Acupuncture, Ethics and Herbs-Weekend 2

November 11-12, 2017

Dr. Will Morris

Weekend 2: Acupuncture, Ethics and Herbs 

Each pulse diagnosis tool has special uses. This weekend focuses upon pulse diagnosis of anatomy and physiology, for the purpose of prescribing herbal medicine. 

Inquiry is used to guide the selection of pulse method. Since the question relates to anatomical location, one places the image of the body over the radial artery in order to explore specific anatomical locations. 

In this anatomical-physiological method, a rolling technique is used to explore particular anatomical locations. For instance, one may examine the esophagus by rolling distal from the stomach position in order to get insight about the structure and function of the esophagus. Searching the depths, one may examine the nerve, vessel and organ tissues. The appropriate herbs are then discussed.
