Local Girl makes it Big! 5/5 (39)

Ever since the Olympics started, I’ve been amazed to see how many World-class athletes come from humble beginnings.

We all want to make it to the big time, but even if we don’t, we celebrate those who overcome the odds and do!

I am excited to announce that our very own Kimberly Thompson has been published in Acupuncture Today!

Are You a Pulse Master?
By Kimberly Thompson, LAc, MSTOM


You’ve been there and so have I.

It was in my first diagnosis class in acupuncture school. Our assignment was to feel the patient’s pulse and report what we felt. I was gung-ho (or naïve) enough to volunteer first.

There I stood, eyes closed, concentrating on feeling something meaningful in that regular thumping heartbeat. To be honest, I had no idea what I was feeling, but I bravely put forth my best guess. Then, the instructor took the pulse and felt something completely different. I wondered if I would ever learn this bit of magic called pulse diagnosis…

  1. Kimberly, you wrote a very good article. If I was still just doing traditional acupuncture I would definitely be wanting to know more about DMI. The first time I heard about DMI was by chance after reading an acupuncture article by John Amaro (also on Acupuncture Today) and I immediately wanted to have it. I did a comparison of available systems as you suggest in your article and happily went with Acugraph.

    I sometimes wonder what it would have been like for me to have had Acugraph as a new graduate back in 1990. Wow! So glad to have it now though. For me the greatest thing is using it to keep my family and in particular my kids healthy. My 2 sons (ages 6 & 8) love being tested to see whose PIE score is highest and they respond so well to the recommended points using non-needle methods.

    My eldest boy started at a new school last year and it surprised us when he struggled to adapt. Some days he would lock himself in the bathroom to avoid going. His teacher said he was fine once he was at school. He just didn’t want to leave home each time. I began graphing him and lasering the recommended points and wow did he respond well. He actually said to me one day, “dad I like school now”. I cannot say that Acugraph is the only reason for this (we were very reassuring and loving each time he was upset) but I have no doubt it played a major role. His reluctance to go to school obviously caused imbalances in his body which Acugraph detected and I treated.

    If I only ever used Acugraph to keep my kids healthy it would be a very, very worthwhile investment. My advice to practitioners sitting on the fence, unsure about Acugraph is to GET IT, YOU WON’T REGRET IT.

So, what do you think about it?
