Unified Acupuncture Theory - 3 Levels of Training IRELAND 2022

“Having the opportunity to study under Daniel Deriaz at the start of my academic career introduced me to the various types of acupuncture that existed and opened my eyes to the limitless possibilities. Upon completion of my formal acupuncture training I went on a quest to learn and acquire as many different styles and techniques that I could. This ranged from Worsley style 5 element, to Manaka Japanese style acupuncture, to Master Tung acupuncture, to Korean Sa’am 4 needle technic, and finally to Dr. Teh-Fu Tan and his balance method. It was with Dr. Tan that I was able to find a common thread between these different styles and allowed me to combine them into practical clinical treatments.”

UAT is a method for understanding the mechanisms of how acupuncture works.

It explains the underlying principles of meridian systems and interactions. Coming from an integrative mindset, the UAT facilitates inter-disciplinary (hence unified) approach to acupuncture.

Jonathan has created a simple system that underlies all major acupuncture modalities including:

– Balance method
– I Ching
– Distal needling
– 5 element theory
– Saam acupuncture
– Japanese acupuncture
– Manaka acupuncture
…and of course foundational TCM

This will allow you to incorporate many different approaches into a coherent unified system for incredibly effective treatments…with fast results!

The course includes the following :

  • A mathematical model of the meridians and their interactions.
  • Supporting evidence of the mathematical structure taken from the classics (Nei Jing, Ling Shu, I Ching) as well as modern mathematical principles.
  • A systematic explanation of how to apply the structure in treatment and how to choose the most effective treatment method.
  • How to incorporate various treatment modalities into a single syFOU5


  • Verify your diagnosis, use few points, get instant feedback on the efficacy of your treatment, have the patient feel involved in their own treatment.

    Using dynamic 5 element theory and simple needle technics you can get excellent clinical results.This course uses Sa’am’s Korean 4 Needle acupuncture method to tonify, disperse, warm, or cool any meridian in the body.

    By only using 4 needles (2 on each side of the body) the practitioner can initiate very powerful changes in the body.

    In adding abdominal palpation the acupuncturist can make a very precise diagnosis and also receive instant feedback to the effectiveness of their treatments.

    This course consists of the following:

    • An explanation of traditional 5 elements points in the body and their use in a dynamic system;
    • Method of selection and step by step systematic understanding of how to choose the 4 needles;
    • Abdominal palpation for precise diagnosis and instant feedback.
