How long does it take to truly master Dr. Chang’s pulse system?

Generally, it takes about 2-3 years. In the beginning, it may be challenging to learn a new system and let go of what was taught in TCM school. However, do not be discouraged as your fingers take time to develop sensitivity for the subtle differences in the pulse. The more pulses that you feel, the quicker you learn. Dr. Chang always says that once you feel the correct pulse for a biomedical condition, you will never forget it.

Is there a discount if I decide to take all the course in the certification program?

There is no specific discount for purchasing all the required courses. However, an even better alternative is to purchase our annual eLotus Gold Pass. For one set price, not only do you get full access to all the courses (for this program and all the other online courses in our library). See Details

What is the best way to grasp and understand Dr. Chang’s pulse system?

By watching the videos repeatedly. Students have reported that after a year of learning by watching the videos, they experience an immense breakthrough as everything starts to make perfect sense. When you are ready for in-person learning, intern with Dr. Chang in his office to expand and deepen your learning even more. Dr. Chang’s wish is to see more practitioners become TCM artists and carry on the pulse taking tradition for generations. The skill that you acquire will surely expand your practice and help more people.

Do I need to take the course quiz to get the certification?

Yes, each course must be completed - this means the quiz must be passed and a CEU certificate generated for each course completion.


“Dr. Chang is a master and that is so rare to have somebody who is willing to show how they systematize their process of diagnosis and prescription process. My clinical results have improved tremendously since I started using Pulsynergy two years ago. And, the audio recordings of the Pulsynergy 1,2,3 were super helpful for reviewing the information for the Pulsynergy video courses. There is so much to learn and I have listened to those lectures over and over again.” - Scott B.

“Master Chang’s presentation on [Case Studies: Clinical Discussion on Pulse Diagnosis and Herbal Prescriptions] was an insightful peek into a brilliant herbalist’s mind. I have a deeper understanding from watching him go through his patient’s treatment protocol on how to approach a diagnosis and treatment plan to best serve my patients. I appreciate the great gift given to us that day. Master Chang was completely selfless and generous in sharing such intimate information. I am still digesting his presentation and it has helped me in having a better understanding of the big picture. I hope he knows how much we appreciate him. Please consider presenting a similar seminar again soon. Thank you.” - D.G.

“I just wanted to thank [eLotus] for being around. It’s so exciting to have a place where I can keep up on learning new things on a career I’m very passionate about. Thank you for making it possible. Please don’t go away! Please keep Dr. Chang’s webinars around. I love them!” -H.S.

“Dr Jimmy Chang is very knowledgeable and I learned a great deal more from this seminar from than I expected and feel very fortunate this seminar was offered online in a webinar!”

“I appreciated the information was presented in a very clear manner. I have not taken his pulse class but he made it easy for me to still understand his lecture.”

“Jimmy is a master. I have been using his pulse taking method now for 5 years with total success. I have prevented 3 heart attacks using his technique. I also have gained the confidence of many new patients, when I am able to tell them what they suffer from without them telling me anything. Jimmy Chang is a living treasure, thank you so much for bringing him and his knowledge to the OM community.”
