The Balance Center has been a very successful acupuncture clinic, one of the reasons being the unique style of acupuncture practiced here. Most acupuncture clinics in the United States use a method that involves inserting needles directly into the area of pain. The problem with this approach is that one always runs the risk of aggravating the pain, and the results are not consistent or reliable. The acupuncture style used at the Balance Center is entirely different.
Our method is over 2,500 years old and is derived from the I Ching, one of the oldest books in the world. This method has many names such as "I Ching acupuncture", but the best-known name for it is "Dr Tan's Balance method". The effects are nothing less than miraculous. Pain relief usually occurs in seconds after needle insertion, and long-lasting relief over a series of treatments is at least 80%. The acupuncture points used are on the scalp and ears, from the elbows to the fingers, and from the knees to the toes. The treatments are efficient and extremely effective.
