Arterial pulse taking has been practiced for thousands of years and the use of this technique has been extensively used and evaluated by TCM practitioners throughout history, and constantly demonstrated its effectiveness even in today’s modern world. “Ping Pulse diagnosis”, is a system that incorporated the use of both the Zhangfu diagnosis and the conventional pulse technique, to provide accurate clinical guidance in identifying the diseased Zhangfu. In This seminar, Dr. Cui will share his decades of clinical experience in Ping Pulse diagnosis and provide in depth explanations on the clinical use of the system.
