About your tutor: Jamie Hamilton BSc (Hons), LicAc. MBAcC, MRSS(T)
He started his shiatsu training at the East West Centre in London (Kushi Institute) in 1988. Here he studied with Rex Lascale, John Sandifer and Bill Tara. More recently, Jamie has studied Anma with master practitioners H.F. Ito and Nicole Beauvois, obtaining his Diploma in 2012 with Amma-France.
Jamie is also a Yoga Teacher, a graduate from the Mount Madonna Institute in Santa Cruz California, Shodan grade Instructor of Shintaido and a practitioner of Therapeutic Massage.
He is currently learning Chinese Herbal Medicine with the Jing Fang Apprenticeship.

​Jamie graduated from the College of Integrated Chinese medicine and went on to study at the Applied Channel Theory centre in Beijing with Dr. Wang Ju-Yi, Jason Robertson and Johnathan Chang.
He is also a shiatsu practitioner and teacher, and the principal of Shiatsu school East West College. He studied for his Diploma of Shiatsu at the European Shiatsu School with Chris Jarmey.

Subsequent to his diploma, Jamie learned the Six Divisions method with Tim Mulvagh of Classically Based Shiatsu. 

This method of pulse diagnosis is easy to learn, clarifies underlying theory and shows hard-to- diagnose aspects such as the 5 Element constitution and 8 Extraordinary vessel imbalances.

The Mai Jing pulse diagnosis technique is presented in detail.

It gives a clear picture of the 6 paired channels (Six Divisions), 8 Extraordinary Vessels and importantly gives an accurate reading of the elemental imbalance and CF. This latter aspect is quite a revolution for 5 Element practice as the reading very much complements and corroborates findings of CSOE (colour, sound, odour, emotion). It also gives a special insight into the nature of Yin and Yang pulses. With a unique notation method and a clarification of the position and character of the pulse, we can re-discover the dynamic qualities of the pulse qualities that we already know.

By consolidating and deepening your method of pulse diagnosis, we can better understand the meaning of certain important topics in Chinese Medicine theory. This method of pulse diagnosis, from the Classic of the Pulse, the Maijing, 脈經 can be integrated easily into your current pulse diagnosis, thereby expanding your repertoire of diagnosis.
This course promises to make a significant difference to your clinical results and enjoyment of practice.    

Seminar includes comprehensive notes.
