Claus Sørensen originally trained as a reflexologist in 1997 and then moved on to study Acupuncture and Chinese Medicine at the College of Integrated Chinese Medicine, UK, headed by John and Angela Hicks and Peter Mole, from which he graduated in 2002. Two years later he got the opportunity to attend a degree top-up course earning him a Bachelor in Acupuncture and Chinese Medicine. His dissertation looked into overgrowth of candida yeast infection and how it could be diagnosed with Tongue Diagnosis and Contemporary Chinese Pulse Diagnosis (CCPD). Claus is also a fully trained herbalist from Southern College of Chinese Medicine, Lund, Sweden.
Since 2004 he has used what in Europe is known as the Shen-Hammer Pulse System as his main diagnostic tool. He has taken several intensive seminars with his pulse colleagues Sybill Huessen and Scott Tower in Europe. In 2010 he attended an advanced intensive seminar with Dr. Leon Hammer, and in 2012 he became fully certified as a CCPD Instructor.
Claus has integrated the pulse system into the acupuncture training program at the ZCD Zonecollege in Køge & Holbæk, Denmark. He continues advanced studies with Dr. Leon Hammer and teaches nationally and internationally. For more information, please visit www.dragonrises.org and www.dragonrises.dk.
