Global Balance Seminar

This fascinating Seminar is the first step in the advanced world of the Balance Method.
Participants will deepen their understanding of the theory of meridians and learn to build complex combinations of four or more meridians. We will explore the fixed and variable principles operating in the Universe and use them to practice a more effective treatment. The simple local balance that is taught in the Basic Seminar does not always give the required response for the complex patient. We often face a diagnostic and therapeutic challenge that characterizes the world of internal medicine. The Global Balance was developed to allow the practitioner who is already familiar with the principles of the Balance Method to deal with these situations, so that he can create structures of meridians, according to the Global Balance, that lead to an effective and accurate treatment of internal diseases.

The Global Balance workshop is an important step in the development of a professional therapist in the Balance Method. Besides teaching the theory, the workshop provides the confidence and ability to handle a huge variety of clinical situations. In this workshop, participants will learn to build complex protocols and to implement them and they will increase their understanding of internal medicine treatment. The Seminar also offers practical demonstration of treatments for common Western diseases such as insomnia, stress and other emotional conditions, respiratory diseases, gastrointestinal diseases such as irritable bowel syndrome, chronic constipation, hormonal imbalance conditions, gynecological and neurological diseases. Participants will learn to integrate the treatment of orthopedic diseases with internal diseases. By the end of the Seminar, participants will see a considerable improvement in understanding and practicing as well as in their clinical outcomes.The Seminar is aimed at clinicians and therapists, both experienced ones and those at the beginning of their careers.

The prerequisites for this Seminar are: completion of the Basic Seminar – “1,2,3 Easy to Learn Easy to Treat”.

MERIDIAN CONVERSION

Meridian Conversion is the second level in the advanced world of the Balance Method.

During this Seminar we will dive into the fascinating world of the Book of Changes (I Ching) and learn how to connect the sources of ancient knowledge between the Book of Changes and the world of acupuncture treatment. Combining the understanding of the Book of Changes and the Global Balance encourages healing at an intensity we haven’t known before and opens the possibility to deep, life changing treatments.

Many patients come to us with complaints relating to the Zang Fu theory (The Organ Theory). In these situations, according to Chinese Medicine, the lack of communication between the organs forms a complex clinical picture. The Meridian Conversion is a great solution for these conditions. The Meridian Conversion is especially effective within Internal Medicine where there is a real difficulty locating the disease in the body.

Meridian Conversion follows the Global Balance principles in order to allow the therapist to deal with abstract and complex medical cases. In addition, it enables the reprogramming of the patient’s Qi’s movement. Meridian Conversion is especially suitable for chronic conditions that characterise our clinic today. This workshop constitutes an important step in the development of a Balance Method professional practitioner.

In this workshop we will learn to choose the precise acupuncture points and how to implement them. We will have practical demonstrations of treatments. We will sharpen the understanding of Internal Medicine treatments. In addition, we will learn the mechanism behind the disease and how to connect it to the world of Acupuncture, providing knowledge and confidence to treat a variety of common Western diseases such as insomnia, stress and other emotional conditions, respiratory diseases, gastrointestinal diseases such as irritable bowel syndrome, chronic constipation, endocrinology and hormonal imbalance conditions, gynaecological diseases, neurological diseases and more.

By the end of the workshop, participants will be able to treat chronic medical cases with an emphasis on selecting specific points for each disease. Practitioners will have a deeper understanding of the world of Acupuncture and Chinese Medicine and will see a considerable improvement in your clinical outcomes.

The workshop is aimed at clinicians and therapists, both experienced and those at the beginning of their careers.

The prerequisites for the Meridian Conversion Seminar are completion of the basic seminar – “Acupuncture – easy to learn, easy to treat 1, 2, 3” and “Introduction to the Global Balance”.

ADVANCED SEMINARS

As a practitioner advances in the Balance Method techniques, he or she comes across more and more complex cases, that need a different prospective and a different way of stimulating the body back into balance.

Our advanced seminars are designed specifically for seasoned practitioners in Chinese Medicine and especially those with experience using the Balance Method, so that they may learn how to identify and use a different approach as needed, for their patients.

Seasonal Balance
The Seasonal Balance Seminar is one of the most fascinating seminars in the Balance Method technique.
In this seminar we will reveal how to balance the patient, together with the universe’s changing energy during the different seasons.

At first glance the Seasonal Balance refers to seasonal illness, but it has in fact a much deeper level than it seems.
Of course it is very effective for treating illnesses such as seasonal allergies, but it is suitable for all imbalances that occur with a change of season, for example – back pain during the winter. This powerful technique is not limited to simple seasonal changes as it can be used for any medical condition related to a changing cycle, such as the sleep and wake cycle, the monthly female cycle and more.

The Seasonal Balance is a wonderful tool to have in order to keep a patient healthy once his balance has been restored and as a maintenance technique, while encompassing all the variables of a changing environment.
On concluding the seminar you will be able to start implementing this technique in your clinic.
This seminar is for Chinese Medicine practitioners and its prerequisites are completion of the basic seminar – “Acupuncture – easy to learn, easy to treat 1, 2, 3” and “Introduction to the Global Balance”.

The Eight Extraordinary Meridians
Chinese history relates in many cases to the unique movement of energy of the Eight Extraordinary Meridians. There are many texts on the subject and most of them contradict other texts on the subject of the function and use of these meridians.

In this seminar we will solve these dilemmas and learn when and how to use these extraordinary meridians. We will share our perspective on this fascinating topic, and understand the role such meridians play in the world of Internal Medicine – from Gynecology to Cardiology and even to emotional conditions such as depression.

We will understand the effect these extraordinary meridians have on our lives, and explain the unique balancing mechanisms these meridians have on Internal Medicine as opposed to Orthopedics, the effect they have on common orthopedic illnesses and their unique contribution to posture, while sharing many examples from our own clinical experiences.

We will address the wide variety of treatments that can be done using this protocol and its different variations. We will learn how to implement this protocol and its variations for many different illness.
This is a fun and practical seminar that demonstrates in practice how to take an idea and protocol and to build a world full of treatments.

The Five Elements wu-xing

The Five Elements is an advanced learning workshop.
The theory of the Five Elements is one of the oldest and most intriguing theories in Chinese Medicine and Philosophy. In this fascinating workshop, participants will learn to combine the knowledge of the Book of Changes with the theory of the Five Elements. The combination of these two theories will allow us to give our patients the most accurate treatment possible.
The combination between the understanding of the Book of Changes and the theory of the Five Elements is undoubtedly one of the most amazing combinations. Beyond the tremendous improvement of the understanding of the treatment, it is also one of the easiest to implement.
The treatment method of the Five Elements allows us to treat situations where balancing the movement of the body’s Qi is not enough, and we are required to perform manipulations that help lead to the balance of the body. This kind of treatment is needed in those situations that Chinese Medicine defines as True Excess or Deficiency, Hot or Cold, Dampness, Stagnation and more. The Five Element workshop gives the clinician the ability to choose the exact treatment points to perform these manipulations.

We will understand the mechanism behind the disease and connect that understanding to the world of Acupuncture. We will also connect the language of the World of Syndromes to the world of Acupuncture. .

12 Magical Points

12 Magical Points is an advanced learning workshop.​
The guiding principle of the Meridian Theory and the Balance Method in particular, is that the most important point is the diagnosis of the meridian or meridians involved in the illness. But what do we do when most or even all of the meridians are out of balance?
The treatment method called the 12 Magical Points has been specifically developed for this particular problem. The name of the method should not be thought of as involving 12 points only, but a method that involves all 12 meridians in creating a movement of Qi that helps bring the body back to balance.
This technique is based on the principles of Global Balance and selecting specific points that allow us to treat such situations successfully, involving illness of most or all of the meridians. Patients suffering from diseases such as Fibromyalgia, Lupus, Sjogren’s Syndrome, Rheumatoid Arthritis and other autoimmune diseases, supportive treatment for oncology , neuropathic and complex injuries and more.

6+1

The Israeli Tan Center is pleased to invite you to a unique seminar – System No.6.

This seminar is the product of our work at the Tan Center and at the hospital and is the reason for a fair amount of our success in the spinal ward.
The most important thing for an Acupuncturist is the understanding that one must diagnose the meridian involved in the illness. This understanding is the root of all treatments in the Acupuncture world and it is a major part of Chinese Medicine. After the diagnosis, one of the options for treatment is that the meridian involved in the illness will also be the meridian chosen as part of the treatment protocol.
In this unique seminar we will learn to use the meridian that is involved in the illness itself to treat the illness. We will show you our unique discovery of combining the meridian itself with its partner in Chinese Name Sharing (System no.1) or with its Exterior-Interior Relationship partner (System no.3) and we will explain why and how to implement it in the treatment.
In this seminar we will learn, using this technique, to treat a wide variety of diseases and medical conditions such as orthopaedic pain, extremity radiation, sciatica, recurring and persistent inflammations such as Patello-femoral joint inflammation, plantar fasciitis, tennis elbow and more.
The workshop is aimed at clinicians, both experienced and those at the beginning of their careers.
Prerequisites – completion of the basic seminar – “Acupuncture – easy to learn, easy to treat 1, 2, 3”.

You can order this seminar for Chinese Medicine practitioners who are not familiar with the Balance Method at all.

ITC Long Term Education

The Israeli Tan Center is proud to present our long term courses and internships in Chinese Medicine according to Dr. Tan’s Balancing Method.
These courses were derived from the understanding that sometimes the time that goes by between seminars is too long and practitioners become lax in using the Balancing System.
The courses are built in two parts.
The first part is theoretical. In this part we learn the entire series of the theory known as the Balancing Method.
The first part of the course includes the Basic seminar, Global Balancing, Meridian Conversion, the Five Elements, the Magical Eight Points, and the Twelve Magical Points seminar. This covers all six stand-alone seminars.

The second part of the long term course is the Specialisation. Here we will show you how to implement the theory in a wide variety of diseases, according to the specific specialisation. This part is the backbone and combination of our clinical experience and is the result of rigorous data collection of thousands of different patients from the hospital and our own private clinics.

Currently there are two specialisation

Orthopedics – from head to toe we review all common orthopedic conditions and will teach you how to build an effective treatment plan for these conditions.

Internal Medicine -We will review the body’s systems and common diseases that characterise these systems from the respiratory system to digestion system, gynecology, endocrinology, cardiology, psychology, diseases of our modern life, the approach to the oncology patient and more.

These specialties, in which we share all our knowledge and our clinical experience, continues for six months and includes clinical experience.

Note to the Institution wishing to book a course – these specialties can be ordered in different formats and in accordance with local needs and requirements.
