 The Balance Method
  How fast does acupuncture work:
Li Gan Jian Ying“ –  
„Put the p
ole under the sun and
the shadow appears immediately“


The Balance Method by Dr.Tan is an I Ging based acupuncture.

The diagnostics, methodology and the immediate result and long-term outcome (and therefore the greater level of fun ) are what make the difference for therapists. 

Diagnosis is exclusively oriented towards the anatomy, which is represented by pathways. 

Until getting to know Dr Tan and his method, I had worked with acupuncture points that were selected not just according to the pathway system. The points that I initially used were assigned meanings from other diagnostic systems of Chinese medicine such as Zang fu, the 6-layer model, the 4-layer model etc. I studied them exactly, and also taught them  on A and B diploma courses for doctors. However, following all these rules did not lead to clearly reproducibly results. At times it worked, at other times it did not, which frustrated me.

A medical colleague, who today teaches herbal medicine successfully, said to me in 1995 when I sat in on her therapy sessions in her practice after completing my first courses in acupuncture: “It doesn’t work so well with the needles, and not at all without herbs.”

I studied herbal medicine, which I would not now like to do without at any cost. The incredible variety of the remedies is a wonderful treasure. I will reveal more about this at another time. 

It would nevertheless be wrong to underestimate acupuncture. 

The Balance Method is based on equilibrium that can be explained in theoretical terms with “digitalisation”. Issues, areas of focus, pain, internal disorders are formulated as 0 and 1 or in terms of yin and yang and balanced via acupuncture points 1=1/ 0=0. 

The most impressive aspect is the change with pain, where, following a correct diagnosis, an immediate effect is felt and seen. 

Internal diseases are accessible to acupuncture using the Balance Method in just the same way, but the effect is not seen so soon. Learning in this case requires a little more time. 

This healing, and hence acupuncture as a method, reach their limits where changes in structure are so far advanced that regulation is no longer possible. In this case, I use acupuncture as a diagnostic instrument: when pain refuses to go away, imaging and further investigations must bring clarity. The results may then show that an operation or other form of treatment is necessary. 

Acupuncture also reaches its limits as a regulative method when an external or internal stimulus acts repeatedly, making regeneration impossible.

The more it´s so wonderful to observe, what amazing regenerative capacities the body has. It´s a miracle.

„I’m tossing out one piece of brick wit the hopes of motivating other practitioners to contribute beautiful pieces of jade. Together, the treasure of acupuncture prosperity will be built.“ (Richard Teh-Fu Tan, O.M.D., Lac. 2003: “ Dr.Tans Strategy of twelve magical points“, Foreword, p.viii,)
