Pulse Diagnosis of the Extraordinary Vessels and 6 Channels


Southwest Acupuncture College, Boulder, CO

PDA’s: 12 (Pending Approval)

Discount offered to AAC participants:10%

Saturday we will cover the basics of extraordinary vessel pulse diagnosis according to the system of Neoclassical Pulse Diagnosis; Sunday we will learn and practice pulse diagnosis of the 6 channels and the compass method.  The system of Neoclassical Pulse Diagnosis relies on relatively easy to grasp pulse methods that are tailored for acupuncture point selection, often leading to the selection of specific points that will immediately balance the pulse and shift the patient’s symptoms. This seminar is designed to give practitioners practical and easy to apply diagnostic and treatment tools that can be immediately implemented to enhance clinical outcomes.
Provider:Thomas Richardson is a Licensed Acupuncturist and a scholar and teacher of acupuncture and Oriental medicine.  From 2012-2014, Thomas lived in Boston, where he completed a Masters in Theological Studies at Harvard Divinity School. During this time, he was also on the faculty at the New England School of Acupuncture, and continued seeing patients in private practice.  Thomas recently moved to Boulder and is currently on the faculty at SWAC.  He has studied intensively under Will Morris and is one of a select few authorized teachers of the Neoclassical Pulse Diagnosis System.
