It’s always nice to get feedback about information we share. Regarding the recent newsletter on the New Four Gates, Gb34 – Heart 8, a practitioner said: “I LOVE this! I am very excited to have something new to try in my clinic and I even tried it on myself today and really liked the way I felt. Thanks for the innovation.”
Another idea: have you tried Liver 14 + Lung 1 to help release emotional stress? Sometimes add Liver 5 to help the energy spread even more. You may be able to feel the patient’s energy (in the pulses) unblock right away. You use the lower channel point (Liver 5 or Liver 3) then connect the channel with Liver 14. The addition of Lung 1 – pointed outward – helps flow the qi through all of the channels that will facilitate the processing of emotional energy.
For those of you who know Dr. Lucas at all, you know that she believes that pulse diagnosis is a practitioner’s most important skill. Without proper diagnosis, treatments aren’t as effective as they can be. It is so invigorating to feel a patient’s worry, tell them that you feel it, and they say that “yes, I am a worrier”. They are surprised that such things can be felt in the pulses. You can also feel things like what is called the “relinquishment wound” from the birth experience.
These sorts of insights from the pulses are so very important for determining the appropriate treatment plan. For example, there are internal and external patterning treatments that you can use to release old, stuck patterns and give treatments that literally change people’s lives. But one doesn’t know when to do these special treatments without a proper pulse diagnosis.
