Si Yuan Balance Method Acupuncture Track

The source of inspiration for Si Yuan Balance Method Acupuncture is the late Grandmaster
Dr. Richard Tehfu Tan. With due respect to him, Dr. Tan is mentioned whenever reference is made to his inventions in the history of Chinese Medicine.

Following in their Master’s path, Si Yuan Instructors aim at offering the most effective, efficient, and enjoyable teachings in the acupuncture community. Si Yuan classes reflect our Instructors’ own understanding, development, and refinement of what they learned from their Master. As Dr. Tan noted, many practitioners do not confidently integrate the Balance Method in their clinical practice due to a lack of hands-on experience. For this reason, the Si Yuan Balance Method Acupuncture Track offers these progressive training courses:
