Different Times

Dear Balance Method Enthusiasts,

Well, it's an interesting time. We have been in a lockdown situation since December 16 and cannot help our patients. Very sad.
This gave me the opportunity to completely rewrite the courses Effective Treatment of Pain with Acupuncture parts 1, 2 and 3. My book is now fully integrated as a course book.
I also had to adapt Part 1 for online teaching. The best part of the course was that the participants could bring in their own patients and treat them in a controlled environment. This was a real confidence-building experience. However, due to the current situation this was not possible.
The weekend of January 16 and 17, Part 1 was offered to an online audience and very well received. This gives me the confidence to prepare Part 2 (February) for online teaching, just in case.

Take care and stay healthy,
With balancing regards,
Kris

Companion Guide

Dear Balance Method Enthusiasts,

The Companion Guide is well on its way. Currently I am writing about the Qi Jing Ba Mai and a deeper understanding of meridians as an organization for the movement of Qi.
The latter is very interesting. Letting go of a meridian as a line and seeing it as a manager, an organization or a standard for the movement of Qi. The Tan Balance Method is perfect for this point of view.
I will also explain the difference between Treatment Principle and Treatment Method. In the West these two are often mixed or used in a less optimal way. I will also give many examples of Treatment Principles and Treatment Methods, from Chinese literature, so we can understand the difference.
Further more about the clinical application of my Perfect Global Balance Structures (PGBS), as I have some interesting clinical cases to share!

With balancing regards,
Kris

Missing lines

Dear Balance Method Enthusiasts,

There are some missing lines in the Global Balance Structures on page 224, 229, 230. The illustrations are correct, however by copying them to the book, some lines disappeared.
Use a ruler and a pencil to add them. It's easy to see which line should be added.

With balancing regards,
Kris


Introduction to Errata - The Path to Perfection

Dear Balance Method Enthusiasts,

I have written this book with great enthusiasm and care.
The use of computers and their copy and paste function is great. Unfortunately this can lead to an error that the eye does not perceive because the brain knows what it should be.
Of course, making mistakes in only human, however, they do not make me happy. As Confucius would probably tell us: "Stay humble and learn!"

In this category I will share the mistakes of the book Balance Method Acupuncture for the Treatment of Pain and Discomfort.

With balancing regards,
Kris

Thank you and what more?

Dear Balance Method Enthusiasts,

Thank you for your kind emails and your questions.
Indeed, this book is used during my courses Effective Treatment of Pain with Acupuncture part 1, 2 and 3.

I’m currently working hard on the Companion Guide of my first book. This Companion Guide is planned for Spring 2021. It will cover for example:
  • Clinical application of the 24 Perfect Global Balance Structures in the context of pain and discomfort.
  • Qi Jing Ba Mai - explanation from Classical Chinese Medicine, pathology, its use in the Eight Magical Points, how to balance, etc.
  • Normal points that are special.
  • More on Clinical applications. Illustrations, etc.

This Companion Guide is book 1.5 ;-)

My second book, planned October 2021, will cover Meridian Conversion, Wu Xing, Seasonal Balance and Cycli. Including a different take on the Yi Jing and Five Phases. I will also explain the clinical application of the 24 Perfect Global Balance Structures, but now in the context of functional disorders. Further, explanations from the Chinese medical classics.
This book will also contain a lot of illustrations in color.
It’s a huge project and I’m enjoying it :-)

With balancing regards,
Kris

PS. Note that the 24 Perfect Global Balance Structures are my own creation. It is not something you missed from Dr. Tan's teachings.
