Dr. Lucas’s Pulse Diagnosis Balancing System is unique in the world of pulse diagnosis. It is a system that allows you to see a wealth of information in the pulses and, maybe most importantly, the causes of the person’s symptoms/condition. AND, she teaches you commonsense ways to explain it to your patients. Here’s what just one person has said about learning Dr. Lucas’s system: “I’m loving your course and am learning a lot! The course is challenging and fascinating. It’s as if I am learning pulses for the first time! Wow! It’s is truly an amazing method!”
Dr. Lucas specialized in diagnostics so the bottom line for her is that the cure will come when the pulses are balanced – and she knows how to do that for people. She is both a “ good and gentle needler” – all of her patients can attest to that. She considers each patient’s situation to be a sort of piece of research: what do the pulses tell her to do, how did the points she needled change the pulses (or not), and keeps proceeding until the pulses are balanced.

Dr. Lucas studied specific needling techniques in the Nei Jing to create the Mei Zen protocols. And, the protocols are truly based on Chinese medicine – they are NOT just putting needles into wrinkles or lines.

We reserve the right to cancel any seminar 30 days in advance of the seminar dates.
