3  Simple and effective method for treating all types of pain  Patients can often be treated sitting in chair without undressing  Pain improvement is immediate  Treatment time minutes  Use one to 12 needles (varies)  No electricity or Moxa May need to repeat treatments at various intervals

4  1. Identify the affected “sick” meridian(s)  2. Determine the balancing or “treating” meridian(s)  3. Chose the acupoints to use Assess desired response If no improvement, reassess Leave needles for min.

5 Dr. Tan’s balancing meridians: first method: (opposite side) LR-MH; TH-GB; KI-HT; SI-BL; SP-LU; LI-ST

6 Dr. Tan’s balancing meridians: third method: (opposite side) TH-MH; GB-LR; SI-HT; BL-KI; LI-LU; ST-SP

7 DR. TAN’S METHODNEEDLE IN SJ 14  1. Identify “sick” meridian: Left hip Gall Bladder (GB 30) 2. Determine treating or  balancing meridian (s):  Right arm San Jiao  3. Determine the acupoint(s)  Using the “mirror format”  Palpate for “ashi” (tender) points  Right arm SJ 14 was chosen

8 DR. TAN’S METHODNEEDLE IN SJ 14  Left hip pain was 8/10  Needle was left for min.  No electricity or moxa  Patient was able to continue to work at her desk  After treatment, hip pain was essentially gone. Patient was very happy. But pain gradually returned after 24 hours.

9 DR. TAN’S METHODNEEDLE IN SJ 14  The same procedure was repeated several times over the course of a month with similar benefits.  Unfortunately, MRI showed severe OA and AVN and patient is scheduled to have elective surgery

10  70 year old man with osteoarthritis and controlled DM II and remote B/L THR’s  c/o one month hx LBP, 3/10 at rest, 8/10 severity with activity No radiation or paresthesias Localizes pain around left L4 to S2 level

11 Video of Tan's balance method of acupuncture for LBP.pptx

12  1. Determine the affected median:  This case: left lower back “bladder meridian” at L4-S2 2. Find the balancing meridians: a. Small intestine meridian (synergistic meridian) b. Lung meridian c. Kidney meridian (coupled meridian) 3.Determine the acupoints using the mirror method or the imaging method. a. SI 3-7 b. LU 6-10 c. KI 2 – 9 (palpate for “ashi” points)

14  Daily 60 min treatment x 3 days  Declined treatment after that  LBP continued to improve and he was able to exercise on the treadmill and be free of disabling back pain

15  1. Determine the “sick” meridian: for lateral epicondylitis: Large Intestine (LI 11)  2. Find the balancing “treating” meridians:  A. Stomach meridian (on the opposite leg)  B. or  C. Lung meridian (opposite arm)  3. Determine the acupoints using the mirror method  A. ST 35 (opposite leg)  B. or  C. Lu 5 (opposite arm) (palpate for “ashi” points, which are likely more therapeutic) Leave needles in for minutes, no electricity or Moxa. May repeat daily or as needed.

16  1. Determine the “sick” meridian(s):  Stomach meridian (St 35) 2.Find the balancing “treating” meridians: a.Large intestine meridian (arm, opposite side of the body) b. or c.Spleen meridian (opposite leg) 3.Determine the acupoints using the mirror format: a. LI 11 (opposite side) b. or c. SP 9 (opposite side) (palpate for “ashi” points, which are likely more therapeutic) Leave needles in for minutes, no electricity or Moxa. May repeat daily or as needed. * LI 11 is effective for treating knee pain of various etiologies. (use arm on opposite side of body from painful knee.)

17  1. Locate the pain and determine the “sick” meridian(s)  2. Determine the balancing or “treating” meridian(s)  3. Using the mirroring format or the imaging format, determine the acupoints use “ashi” points Pain should improve immediately.
