Si Yuan Team’s Master
Si Yuan Team’s Master made it his life’s work to revolutionize the practice and teaching of acupuncture.
From an early age growing up in Taiwan, he began learning the philosophies and healing practices of traditional Chinese medicine. As a young adult, he further nourished this knowledge by reading ancient Chinese medical texts in addition to his education in engineering.
Western interest in acupuncture – a traditional medicine that has evolved over the past 2,000 years – was just beginning to take off when Si Yuan Team’s Master arrived in the US to pursue a PhD in engineering. Despite the growing global recognition of acupuncture’s benefits, he saw that the results of modern clinical practice weren’t as effective as what had been documented in historical texts or what he had observed in practice as a young man in Taiwan.

Stand pole, see shadow.
Several ancient acupuncture texts describe how a shadow appears the moment a pole is stood up under the sun. The effects of stimulating acupuncture points should be that immediate. However, only a handful of modern masters had achieved such results after decades of practice. Similar effects were not possible for most practitioners, who were often copying patterns of acupuncture points without real understanding of what worked and why.
Certain that anybody could consistently see immediate results if given the right framework, Si Yuan Team’s Master set out to develop a modern basis for systematically learning and understanding how acupuncture works. His years of research have resulted in the Balance Method, a new way of analyzing and applying the networks of energy channels in the human body.
The results speak for themselves. Instant clinical efficacy has become the hallmark of the Balance Method. Thousands of patients travelled to his clinic in San Diego, California, each year to receive his treatments and find new hope to achieve a healthy balance in life.
But the reach of the Balance Method extends far beyond Si Yuan Team’s Master own clinic, thanks to his willingness to share his knowledge with others through his seminars and books. He was a visiting professor teaching in the doctoral programs of colleges like Five Branches University and also accepted invitations to present at numerous conferences and schools. Thousands of health practitioners around the world have successfully incorporated the Balance Method into their own practice and – because of the intuitive logic that makes the method so easy to learn – they have also seen clinical success rates similar to his.
