Gong Fa

Balance Method Gong Fa is a system of exercises integrated from several lineages of physical, energy and healing cultivation.
The training method draws from traditional practices such as meditation and martial arts but is continually refined through clinical application and modern research. Cultivation includes static, dynamic, sitting, standing, and breathing exercises to regulate autonomic function and synchronize circadian rhythm.
Balance Method Gong Fa is complementary to acupuncture with the following main benefits:

  • Helps the practitioner keep balance, avoid exhaustion and exert a positive influence on patients during treatments
  • Protects the practitioner from catching the pathogenic influence (“sick Qi”) of the patient
  • Increases the practitioner’s efficiency, effectiveness and intuition

Day 1: Clinical Wonders with Acupuncture 1,2,3

  • Discover a logical Three-Step Strategy to immediately and effectively treat all localized symptoms such as pain, numbness, stiffness, tingling or burning sensations, etc.
  • Understand the classical origin of Si Yuan Team’s Master’s famous 6 Systems which tie up 2,000 years of Chinese Medicine into a simple balancing pattern. You will be amazed how scattered concepts suddenly make sense!
  • Learn the Golden Rules to make acupuncture work consistently.

Day 2: Clinical Wonders in Practice

  • Learn the “Matrix Analysis Technique” to balance complications using a minimal number of meridians in your treatment.
  • Countless real-life case studies and demonstrations ensure you will have analyzed the most common pain patterns seen in clinical practice.
  • Some lucky participants will be invited to palpate Ashi points and insert needles under the teacher’s supervision.

Day 3: Global Balance for Functional Disorders

  • Apply the Taiji Dynamic Structure to treat functional diseases and whole-body pain.
  • Practice different Four-Meridian Treatment Strategies for whole body issues such as allergic, digestive, cardiac, respiratory or uro-gynecological diseases.
  • Convert Western medical diagnoses into correct acupuncture diagnoses for accurate treatments
  • Discover Si Yuan Team’s Master’s famous and most effective point combinations.

Day 4: Global Balance in Practice

  • Review and combine all the theory and demonstrations from the past three days.
  • Utilize a simple and effective wisdom when approaching patients who simultaneously exhibit local and internal disorders.
  • End the four-day series feeling no questions were left unanswered!
