A common block to purposeful, effective and lasting treatment is the impact that shock and trauma have on one's health. One of the most prevalent and yet unknown diagnoses in modern Chinese medicine, Heart Shock creates a sequelae of imbalances that if not dealt with prevent the full healing of our patients. With Shen-Hammer Contemporary Chinese Pulse Diagnosis and Classical Pulse Diagnosis one can readily diagnose the presence of Heart Shock from pathognomonic pulse quality presentations as well as its impact on other systems. In this Meetup, Ross will detail how to diagnose and tailor treatment strategies that encompass these diagnoses leading to successful clinical interventions, including acupuncture strategies incorporating the 8x, primary channels, luo vessels, divergent meridians, sinews, etc. and contemporary and classical herbal strategies that range from Sun Si-miao to Drs. Shen and Hammer....
Ross's early interest in Chinese culture and martial arts led to the study of acupuncture and Chinese herbal medicine at the Pacific College of Oriental Medicine in New York City, where he earned his Masters of Science in Traditional Oriental Medicine in 2000. Ross is Board Certified nationally by the NCCAOM in acupuncture, herbal medicine and Asian bodywork (Dipl. O.M.), as well as being state licensed in New York and New Jersey. In addition to his training and background in Chinese medicine, he is a member of the New York and New Jersey Bar.
Ross's passion for Chinese medicine lies in its diagnostic capability; specifically, determining the underlying causes of an illness and detecting the energetics of that illness in order to prevent disease. This is why Ross has dedicated years to the study of Contemporary Chinese Pulse Diagnosis (CCPD), Contemporary Oriental Medicine® (COM) and Chinese medical psychology and is one of only a few practitioners to be certified by and continue to receive hands on training with world renown Dr. Leon Hammer in these disciplines. Ross is a senior certified teacher and serves on the Board of Directors of Dragon Rises, Inc. as well as Contemporary Oriental Medicine Foundation and is a direct lineage holder and spokesman for CCPD and COM.
Ross has also spent years dedicated to the study and practice of Classical Chinese Medicine (including Classical pulse diagnosis) under 88th generation Daoist priest Jeffrey Yuen, both privately as well as through the American University of Complementary Medicine's PhD program. Ross has been granted permission to teach this material directly by Jeffrey Yuen. This foundation and the synthesis with CCPD and COM forms the basis of his clinical practice, ideology, paradigm and world-view.
Ross's passion for martial arts has been a constant throughout his life. He attained the rank of Fourth Degree Black Belt and Instructor in Shaolin Kempo in his early twenties. He currently practices Tai Ji Quan, Qi Gong and meditation.
