About this course

Verify your diagnosis, use few points, get instant feedback on the efficacy of your treatment and have the patient feel involved in their own treatment: Using this dynamic 5 element theory and simple needle techniques  lead to excellent clinical results.

This course uses Sa’am’s Korean 4 Needle acupuncture method to tonify, disperse, warm, or cool any meridian in the body. By only using 4 needles (2 on each side of the body), the practitioner can initiate very powerful changes in the body. In adding abdominal palpation, the acupuncturist can make a very precise diagnosis and also receive instant feedback to the effectiveness of their treatments. This course consists of the following:

  • An explanation of traditional 5 element points in the body and their use in a dynamic system

  • Method of selection and step by step systematic understanding of how to choose the 4 needles.

  • Abdominal palpation for precise diagnosis and instant feedback


«Jonathan Shubs has a very warm manner and a genuine interest in passing on his knowledge. He was very aware and sensitive to the needs of the group.
