Webinar Summary: Pulse Diagnosis: What is Happening to Pulses During the Pandemic featuring Martha Lucas


In May, we hosted Dr. Martha Lucas, Ph.D., L.Ac, author of Pulse Diagnosis: Beyond Slippery and Wiry for her FREE webinar, Pulse Diagnosis: What is Happening to Pulses During the Pandemic.

About this Webinar:

We all know that stress can have negative effects on mental health and general health. But how does that show up in the pulses? Since TCM is about addressing the causes of disease, we must understand how to balance the person’s energy via the pulses in order to maintain the balance that prevents disease. Dr. Lucas explains how the current pandemic is affecting pulses and share research about how acupuncture can help our bodies prevent the cytokine storm.





What You Will Learn:

  • How the scattering of Kidney Qi caused by the fear generated by the pandemic feels in the pulses
  • Why this is especially critical to the immune system
  • How the immune system pulses can help fund the Ks (why Earth/digestion is so important)
  • Tips on how to address this syndrome – research shows that acupuncture affects processes like cytokine production during stress

Who Should Watch:

  • Practitioners and Students interested in learning how the pulse is related to the immune system
  • Practitioners and Students looking to add to their Treatment Tool Box
