UAT Meridian Interactions For Pain (previously UAT – Foundations)


Understanding how and why meridians interact is the key to making the right diagnosis and treatment. You will never have to memorize acupuncture points or treatment plans. At this course Jonathan breaks down the why and how of all distal needling approaches for those who have never studied it and seasoned balance method or Master Tung practitioners. You are guaranteed to walk away with a better understanding and clinical approach as well as simple, effective clinical tools.


A note from Jonathan on the course:

There are many approaches that teach the same basic idea.  Dr Tan’s Balance method, Balance Method, Distal Needling, to name a few, give you a basic simple system that if applied exactly as taught, will give clinical results.

What makes UAT meridian interactions different is that it breaks down the systems and the logic into bite size bits and reassembles them so not only do you have a system that you can use, but you have a system that you can understand.  This means you will get all the information you would get from any other distal needling approach AND you leave with understanding why it works.  Many people say, “why do I need to know why it works? If it works that is good enough for me.”  I do not disagree, well actually I do.  IF you have a system that you do not understand but can use then you can not adjust, incorporate your previous knowledge, or evolve as a therapist.  Without understanding you are limiting yourself.  And I would argue that it is a disservice to yourself and especially to your patients.

So, the short answer is that the difference between UAT Meridian Interactions course and the other approaches to distal acupuncture is that with UAT Meridian Interactions you learn the how to do it, the why it works and most importantly you learn to incorporate all the other styles of acupuncture you have learned or will learn.  With other courses you are limited to only using their method.  With UAT you are invited to understand the mechanisms of the system and then create your own style.
