Continuing Education
Reading the information conveyed in the pulse is a key element of Tibetan Medicine. The pulse is used to diagnose both the individual character of the patient as well as the specific pathology. The characteristics of the pulse are affected by the transport, degradation and building processes of the three bioenergetic substances, or humors. Through this palpation, the doctor can determine the nature of the disease, whether it is painful, whether swelling has occurred and if the swelling is hard, soft, big or small, and can also predict the course of the illness.* Date: Wednesday October 4, 2017 Time: 5:30pm - 8:30pm Instructor: Tulku Lobsang Rinpoche. *Health Care Professionals invited
