Seasonal Balance + Balancing the 5 Elements + Dr Tan’s Strategy of 12 Magical Points + Face Diagnosis

Seasonal Balance

October 17, 2024 - 9am to 5pm

In this course, Dr. Han will expand the application of the Balance Method and discuss Four-Segment Timing. This is an advanced method of point selection based on the rhythms of nature and the five shu-transporting points. Our sleep cycles, hormonal levels and mental states are all affected by cyclical rhythms. Dr. Tan discusses the connection between meridian points and these rhythms of our body. With this knowledge, different points will be more effective at various times of the day and during various seasons. In addition, he will expand his discussion of the I-Ching and discuss how we can create seasonal balance by using the hexagram of the current season to balance the hexagram associated with an affected meridian. This system is effective for a variety of internal and external disorders. However, particular attention will be paid to disorders that are caused or exacerbated by seasonal changes such as allergies, joint pain, muscle aches and certain types of depression. As always, case studies will be discussed to help assist participants in a thorough understanding of this advanced system.

Balancing the 5 Elements

October 18, 2024 - 9am to 5pm

This seminar combines the theories behind two effective acupuncture systems: Five Element Acupuncture and the Balance Method. It explains which elements are associated with specific hexagrams of the I Ching and then how to balance these hexagrams by using the Balance Method. Advanced concepts of tonification and sedation will be discussed. Likewise, this seminar will explain how these concepts can be applied to stubborn cases of stagnation, discussing case studies from the clinic and providing hands-on demonstration.  

Dr. Tan's Strategy of 12 Magical Points

October 19, 2024 - 9am to 5pm

In this course, Dr. Han will provide an in-depth explanation of his Strategy of Twelve Magical Points designed to treat the entire body by regulating all 12 meridians. This strategy was designed specifically for complicated pathological conditions by applying a unique combination of all twelve meridians, the Five Transporting Points, the Imaging Format, Four Segment Timing, and the Yin/Yang Balancing Dynamic. Each of these concepts will be discussed in detail in order to provide a clear understanding of the methodology behind the strategy.

Specifically, three Shu Points are selected on each limb by regions using the format of the Five Shu Point relationship to Four Segment Timing which balances the body to the fourth dimension, time. Placement of the Shu Points reflect the Imaging Format in motion beginning with the Jing-Well points at the tips of the fingers and toes and ending with the He-Sea points at the knees and elbows. The whole body is treated by the Imaging Format with the Shu Points. The arrangement of the Yin/Yang Balancing Dynamic creates a model of balance for the body, sets the symmetrical pattern into motion, and shifts the body from a state of imbalance to balance. There are 16 possible patterns which can be used when designing a treatment plan. These patterns will be discussed in terms of case studies to help assist applicants in the practical application of this method. Time will also be allotted for hands-on demonstration of the treatments.

Face Diagnosis

October 20, 2024 - 9am to 1pm

This course is focused on integrating face reading as a key diagnostic tool in Chinese Medicine. The face reading discipline utilizes examination of specific features to reveal pathological changes in organ systems. The unique value of facial reading is that it can identify dynamics and internal shifts that may be the root of current symptoms, as well as the possible cause of future conditions. Learn how to harness this powerful methodology to level up your diagnostic and treatment prowess.

This class will take place at 5222 Balboa Ave Suite 73, San Diego, CA 92117, United States
