Have you ever wondered why I check your pulse before your treatment?

One of the most beautiful aspects of Traditional Chinese Medicine is the art of pulse taking. It’s an ancient technique that has been used for thousands of years.

Imagine! Before current medical equipment, these ancient people had to find some way to diagnose and treat their patients. Pulse taking was one of the ways doctors examined the different systems of the body and analyzed how the systems worked together.

This method is still used today. Usually, I take your radial pulse located at the thumb side of the wrist - this small area is a bioholograph + represents the entire body. There are 3 positions on each wrist and 3 levels that are observed ~ I’m looking for the way the pulse jumps, how it feels, the rate, and how weak/strong it is.

On the right wrist, I check the lung, large intestine, stomach, spleen, and adrenal systems. On the left wrist I’m checking the heart, pericardium, liver, gallbladder, kidney, and bladder functions.

Not only am I interested in the physical functions of your body but I’m also looking at the emotional aspects that are affecting your body as well. The body uses its own chemical language - and emotions are chemical too, so they’re going to have an effect on everything.

Since incorporating flower essences into my practice, pulse-taking has gone to a whole new level of awesome. I’ve discovered that by placing different flower essences on your body + retaking your pulse, I can figure out which essences are going to balance you out + catalyze your healing.

I have found that using 2-3 essence blends help support the layers of healing you most need to work on at that time. Using this pulse taking method with acupuncture and flower essences has been gamechanging and I’ve noticed huge changes in how quickly a patient resolves their problems + become happy. It’s pretty darn cool, I love it.
