Within acupuncture, there are many different traditions and methods used to formulate protocols for needling. The Balance Method is a form of acupuncture that was developed by a Taiwanese-American acupuncture Master, Dr. Richard Teh-Fu Tan.
Dr. Tan developed a logical system to determine the body’s energetic points. By providing a strategical method to the ancient practice of acupuncture, the Balance Method ensures the efficacy of each acupuncture session, often bringing about immediate relief from pain.
The immediate efficacy of the Balance Method makes it ideal for treatments in difficult living conditions and allows practitioners to handle large patient volume efficiently. As only distal points are used, the Balance Method allows practitioners to treat patients easily in seated positions, without having to remove clothing. The simplicity of the Balance Method also makes it easy to create protocols and train local healthcare practitioners to treat common diseases and conditions.
