Studies with Dr. Duckworth: St. Louis, MO, and Santa Fe, NM

The Institute of American Acupuncture & Life Medicine is pleased to offer this opportunity to study Jingei Pulse Diagnosis with a Master of Kototama Life Medicine:

Thomas E. Duckworth
Doctor of Kototama Life Medicine

Jingei Pulse Diagnosis in Five Element Therapy
Do you feel overwhelmed by pulse diagnosis, yet desire to be able to study and apply it in your practice? Often, patients present with a variety of symptoms and complaints that do not readily indicate the root treatment to employ. Jingei diagnosis is an ancient method of determining the most effective meridians to treat so that your treatments achieve high-quality results quickly.

Dr. Duckworth began his Pulse Diagnostic studies with Dr. Masahilo M. Nakazono O-sensei in 1977 and continued for the next ten years as his apprentice. With solemn ritual and a clock of secrecy, Nakazono O-sensei taught Jingei Diagnosis as part of his basic diagnostic procedures; Dr. Duckworth has read more than 60,000 Jingei Pulses over the past 32 years of practice.

His studies and clarification of Pulse Diagnosis led to his Doctorate Degree in Kototama Life Medicine. He is the only graduate of the Kototama Institute to achieve this rank and distinction. Following the tradition of Sensei/Student tutorship, Dr. Duckworth has been teaching Kototama Life Medicine since the 1980’s and his students now practice in New Mexico, California, Colorado, Missouri, Illinois, Indiana, Maine and Mexico.

In this workshop, you will learn how to interpret the Jingei pulse and its association to the Zo/Fu meridians, san yin/san yo relationships and five element therapy in your clinical practice.
