Have you ever wanted to increase your speed and accuracy of diagnosis?

Not only that, but guarantee results with your patient before they even leave the treatment room?

Or, learn how to use pulse to show you your results, in real time?


Have a watch below to see what you will learn in your new online course:


I loved it and recommended it to a few of my fellow acupuncturists. I liked how it was a complete overview of how to get to a diagnosis and went over a lot of things that I never heard of during my years at (my college).”

Almost everything that you need to know is written right on your patient’s body, in their voice, word choices, odour, movements, pulse and even the general energy that they hold. We skim over parts of this in college to pass those exams, but now I would like to take you on a deep dive on how to really use these skills and more… fast.



point of this course is not to help you be a practitioner that just moves through patients quickly without taking the proper time. It is more so that you can have a multi-point diagnostic check system so that your diagnoses are much more accurate and your results are guaranteed. This process becomes so fast after awhile of using these techniques, that you will find yourself diagnosing your patient (accurately) within minutes or less!


Just passed my exams and feel overwhelmed with getting started. Most useful? Pulse without a master, needle order, tonification/reduction techniques demo. Very useful. Just need to work on getting clients now so I can start making people feel better!!”

It was well thought out and planned. I really liked the detail that went into each section and how it flowed together. I loved the guide book that came with the course. I really enjoyed all of the content. It felt like being back in the classroom with Gillian.”

“Another excellent course by Gillian. This is my third course and I will definitely be back for more. I really appreciate the quality of film production that eliminates the typical distractions of a filmed workshop. The workbooks are very well organized and valuable references that I use time and again.”

    What an amazing teacher! Highly recommended & ideal course for a newly qualified practitioner- I learned skills that weren’t taught on my degree course – to help me diagnose more efficiently and provide more effective treatments, thank you 🙂
