Reviews

“This book, although seemingly simple, is the distillation of all of the skills applied to the beloved tradition that has been passed down to us from our honoured teachers. It is an accurate description of several layers of logic that form the basis of our medical practice.
If you are a beginning student or an advanced practitioner of any of the Balance Method schools, reading, contemplating and applying the wisdom on these pages will spread a wildfire of healing through your practice, your community, and the world.
If your journey with the Balance Method is just beginning, count yourself as extremely fortunate to have come to this path in this way. If your journey with the Balance Method has become your life path and dharma, welcome home.”

“The late Dr. Richard Tan use to often say that he wanted his students to take his teachings past the mental level and into their heart. Sonia Tan has clearly done so and fully embodies the knowledge of The Balance Method. She is a gifted teacher that can lead her students from the beginning to advanced stages of learning in the wonderful art.”

“Meet your new reference bestie, The Foundations of Balance Acupuncture: A Clinical Reference Manual. This well-crafted and curated guide definitely won’t collect dust (until you have it memorized, and, yes, you’ll want to memorize it).
 
I’m one of those people who needs instant results for my patients, and that’s exactly what I get using Balance System Acupuncture. I had the honour of studying under the late Dr. Richard Tan, and I’m now lucky enough to be guided by Dr. Sonia Tan. My practice has transformed with each new layer of knowledge they’ve imparted. And surrounding myself with practitioners who speak the Balance System language has further revolutionized my practice.
 
I believe the Balance System is Acupuncture as it is truly meant to be practiced. With this manual, we finally have a reference book that clearly lays out the Level 1 and 2 basics.
But, wonderful though this book is, don’t stop here. To fully unlock the potential growth in your practice and career, I encourage you to take these levels with Sonia and experience the power of energetic educational exchange. Her classes are not to be missed, if only for her drawing of a “sock monkey”, which will have you laughing for days! Plus, who doesn’t want to learn the point that’s the size of a credit card?
 
Among the many gems I’ve received as a student of Sonia’s, this book will shine as a daily practice tool for years to come.”
