The Four Pillars of Assessment​

This Acupressure course focuses on classical Chinese Medicine assessment, know as the Four Pillars. 


Students learn assessment tools such as pulse listening, tongue and face reading, palpation of specific points, and assessment and treatment of various types of headache.

This course uses the information that students have learned in "Acupressure & the Twelve Rulers of the Kindgom", and adds assessment tools to make each acupressure session effective, specific and unique in addressing people's individual needs.
