30th April and 1st May MULLINGAR IRELAND 2022

VENUE will be confirmed once minimum members enrolled.



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 system


“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.”

This course creates 12 distinct treatment patterns based on the I Ching Ba Gua, Unified Acupuncture Theory, and the balance method. These 12 patterns can treat an array of internal functional problems with a particular focus on anxiety and insomnia. These 12 patterns are based on three main concepts – dynamic interactions, static interactions, and the meridian code. The combination of these three concepts together enable treatment on many levels, including-musculoskeletal problems, functional affections, internal imbalances, and psychological and emotional states.


Upon completion of this course, participants will be able to

  • Identify and apply dynamic interactions.
  • Identify and apply static interactions.
  • Understand the principles behind the meridian code and how to apply the Guas to the individual meridians.
  • Know the symptomology and indications for each of the 12 patterns.
  • Understand the three main paradigms in which the 12 patterns are created.
  1. The six levels of YIN and Yang.
  2. The three levels of UAT model.
  • The three relationships of the midday midnight coupled with the entry exit relationship.
  • Know and be able to create the treatment of each of the 12 patterns using eight needles in total.
  • Understand and be able to apply the six patterns used for vertical meridian diagnosis in pain or other affections of the meridians.
