About the Certification Program
This series of courses introduces the Unified Acupuncture Theory (UAT) and thereby helps to understand the mechanisms of how acupuncture works. The UAT model is a tool that explains the underlying principles of meridian systems and interactions. Coming from an integrative mindset, the UAT facilitates inter-disciplinary approaches to acupuncture. Having a simple system that underlies all major acupuncture systems (Balance Method, I Ching, distal needling, 5 element theory, Saam acupuncture, Japanese acupuncture, Manaka acupuncture, TCM, etc.) allows practitioners to incorporate many different approaches into a coherent system for effective treatments.
In the UAT Foundations course you learn the principles of:
Dr. Tan’s Balance Method
distal needling with imaging and mirroring
Master Tong’s acupuncture
Japanse Meridian Theory and
applied channel theory that will give you rapid clinical results
Based on the I Ching, Yin/Yang and classical TCM theory, you get a clear understanding of how meridians interact using six different systems. Upon completion of the course you will be able to immediately apply the learned principles in your clinic and integrate it into your pre-existing knowledge of acupuncture.
In your clinical practice, after this course you will be able to apply the following:
Assess the pain and localized symptoms using meridian theory
Identify the affected meridian(s) and learning how to choose the most effective meridian(s) to interact
Use imaging and mirroring approach to choose the best place for the needle placement
This course is for licensed acupuncturists or senior level students of acupuncture.
