Would you like to be a part of a lineage of authentic teaching?

Come and learn what you didn’t learn in school – Balance System Acupuncture!

Evolved and taught by Dr. Sonia F. Tan, DAOM, RAc, RTCMP:

Doctor of Acupuncture and Oriental Medicine,

Dr. Richard Tehfu Tan Gold Level Certified Practitioner of the Balance Method,

Past Academic Faculty at Boucher Institute of Naturopathic Medicine.


History of Balance System Acupuncture:
First discovered in the ancient classic Chinese medicine texts of over 2,000 years ago by Dr. Chao Chen, who published a book on this method and began to teach it in the 1970’s. Refined by Dr. Richard Teh-fu Tan into a systematic and logical way of understanding it, “The Balance Method” as it is originally known as, became popular under his guidance, experience and further developments. Balance System Acupuncture – known for its quick efficacious results – is based on the utilization of a more in-depth and refined way of using Channel Theory based acupuncture. Dr. Sonia Tan, a certified Gold level practitioner of Dr. Richard Tan and one of his senior students, has blessings to continue this legacy and style of acupuncture, with the addition of her clinical and teaching experience, and improvements of her own to the methods. Learn this method with direct access to one of Dr. Richard Tan’s senior students and certified Gold Level practitioner – Dr. Sonia F. Tan, DAOM, RAc, RTCMP. Further history and information can be found on www.TanBalance.com.

FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS:

Will I walk away from the course with something applicable to my practice after the first session?  Yes! After Module 1 of the program you will walk away with knowledge that you can immediately integrate into your practice. Single System Balances can be a great tool for treating all types of pain, sports injuries and headaches. The program is designed to give you the confidence to go back to your practice and start treating right away! The month in between the modules allows time for students to utilize their new techniques before starting the next level. Each time we meet there will be an opportunity for students to present their questions, challenges and success stories.

What sort of conditions will we learn to treat using the Balance System? What sort of impact will this course have on my practice?  The most important thing to understand about learning the Balance System Acupuncture is that it will provide you with an entirely new understanding of how to practice acupuncture. You will be given a logical framework that will guide you to an appropriate treatment for a wide variety of conditions. You will learn tools that will serve you well regardless of your area of focus. Pain, sports injuries, emotional issues, digestion, hormones, dermatology can all be addressed using the balance method. The step by step problem solving strategies presented in this course will help you feel confident in choosing point protocols.

Will there be a hands on/needling component to the course or will it be  mostly theory?  The course will primarily be theory based. Classes will consist of teaching and grand rounds discussions about case studies. There may be a small amount of time allocated to finding lesser known points, etc, but there will not be needling. The vast majority of points discussed in the program will already be known to anyone licensed to practice acupuncture.

What is the expectation for out of class study time?  This will vary from student to student, but will most likely amount to a few hours a month to prepare for each of the module exams. Students should plan to immediately integrate what they learn in each module into their practices to fast track their understanding.)

How many case studies will each student need to present over the course of the program?  Over the course of the program students will be required to present 2 cases from their own practice.

When will the exams occur?  Exams will occur via an online format approximately two weeks after each Module.

Will practitioners with some Balance System/Method background be able to challenge the earlier modules and join the program only for the more advanced modules?  Yes! Practitioners with some background in the balance method will be able to challenge the exams from earlier modules. If they pass the exams they will be able to enroll in the more advanced modules.

What are the options in terms of a payment plan?  For those who register for the full program before December 15, there is a 5% discount available. Pre-requisites can be paid monthly. Certificate program tuition is due as a whole.

Will the Program be eligible for student loans?  Unfortunately not. As the program occurs only one weekend a month it does not meet the minimum hours needed to qualify for student loan funding. It may be possible to receive independent funding from other institutions such as banks, credit unions, etc based on your individual circumstances.

Do I need to complete all the modules within a year? What if something comes up and I can’t attend a module?  Ideally students would complete all certificate modules consecutively, however we understand that sometimes unexpected circumstances can arise. With special permission from the instructor and the program coordinator, consideration may be given for exceptions provided there is a viable plan for completion. Students will need to complete all modules within 3 years to be eligible for certification.

I would like to take the equivalency test. How do I do that? (1) Apply by emailing the instructor Dr. Sonia Tan, soniatan (at) langara.ca, with your proof of equivalent course completion, to assess your academic qualification (Core Foundations from Academy of Acupuncture and Si Yuan are examples of current acceptable equivalents). (2) If approved, you will have your information forwarded to the Program Manager, Karen Ramsden, kramsden (at) langara.ca, and you will be set up to write the exam. This may include the ability to take the test offsite, depending on technical availability in your area. Please make note of the dates of the equivalency tests, and apply minimum 2 weeks prior to the date.
