The pulse methods in this seminar focus upon anatomy. There are also special pulses that relate to concepts of western physiology related to hypothyroidism, depression and atherosclerosis. In addition to the western anato-physiological view, concerns of Chinese medical pathophysiology are addressed. All of the concepts are then organized into a flow chart analysis in order to facilitate an assessment that is comprehensive, embraces the complexity and accounts for all data collected.

William Morris, PhD, DAOM, LAc is a pulse diagnosis teacher of world renown. He is the founder of email@example.com and www.pulsediagnosis.com. He began his studies in the area of pulse diagnosis and pulse balancing methods in 1980. He taught the Shen-Hammer method with Leon Hammer between 1993 and 2000. Since then, Will has adapted the Shen-Hammer nomenclature to conventional pulse diagnosis language and continues to teach the method on that basis. Will discovered the compass method and was the first to publish in English on the eight extraordinary vessel and six channel pulse methods of Wang Shuhe. He completed his PhD dissertation, Pulse Diagnosis: Epistemology, Practice and Tradition in 2009. It is a synthesis of conventional, canonical and family lineage forms of practice that is deconstructed in terms of how clinical knowledge is built.
