Pulse diagnosis is highly subjective and neither the practitioner or patient has any way of knowing if the treatment that is being performed is effective while it is being given.

The educational model that is used to train acupuncturists in this country teaches a form of pulse evaluation for assessment and diagnosis that is very hard to master and typically takes years, if not decades of study and practice in order to be used effectively.

If you are new to KMS we recommend: Acupoints can be stimulated in many ways which include, but are not limited to: An area that is found to be uncomfortable or tight is seen as a clue in answering the question of why the patient is not well.
