Dr Richard Tan and the Balanced Method: The Origin

The Origin of Huai Dan 懷聃

As followers of Dr. Richard Tan know, he was an amazing man who poured his heart and soul into the creation of the world-renowned Balance Method. Born into a family dedicated to Chinese medicine, he was always interested in acupuncture and began his studies and treatment of patients in Taiwan before moving to the United States in 1977. 

After an extensive education, he earned his doctoral degree in San Diego at an Oriental Medicine school and opened his practice in 1989 to great success.

However, Dr. Tan was not one to rest on his laurels. With each of the tens of thousands of patients he treated, he extracted something new that helped him improve his needle techniques or fine-tune and elevate his Balance Method system.

Dr. Tan’s Chinese given name was “Teh-Fu” 譚特夫 (“maverick man” in Chinese) but he styled himself as “Dan” 聃 (assuming Lao Tzu’s first name) and “Wu-Bian” 無邊 (“infinite”). In honor of his chosen name, The Academy of Acupuncture was also founded under the Chinese name “Huai Dan” 懷聃.

This name conveys the Academy’s mission to serve as the facilitator to carry on the great tradition of Dr. Tan and his systematic Balance Method on his honorable behalf.

have to say:

Dr. Lana Moshkovich.Deerfield


“My clinical skills and results drastically changed and improved since I met and learn directly from Dr. Richard Teh-Fu Tan.I decided to continue learning from Eileen and Paul because they are one of the best Dr. Tan students.Glad we have this option available.My practice produces outstanding results using Distal Balance Method for Pain and Chronic Conditions.”

Telen Harper, MD, R.Ac.

“Dr. Eileen Han is a very knowledgeable and passionate teacher. I particularly enjoyed her anecdotes from her working years with Dr. Richard Tan and from her clinical practice. Thank you!”

Anna Dolopo

Mission Viejo CA, USA.

“I’ve been in practice since 1999 and a committed student of The Balance Method since March 6, 2006. I have taken ALL Dr. Richard Teh-Fu Tan’s classes and I’m catching up on all of Dr. Eileen Han’s classes that she has inherited to pass on her master’s legacy.

In classes, I’ve told many other senior students of Dr. Tan that Dr. Han actually teaches BETTER than Dr. Tan did. I believe that is because she was the main one keeping everything organized for MANY years as his closed door apprentice. Dr. Tan guided her in practice and primed Dr. Eileen Yue-Ling Han as his number one student to properly teach The Balance Method....I am forever grateful for you and Dr. Richard Tan.”

Lindsay Trottier, DACM LAc.

San Diego CA, USA.

“Dr Eileen Han and the teachers of The Academy of Acupuncture (TAA) are doing a wonderful job of honoring Dr Richard Tan’s legacy by teaching Balance Method Acupuncture in an easy to learn and practical way. Dr Han and the instructors of TAA provide decades of knowledge from learning directly with Dr Richard Tan, and decades of clinical and business experience... If you take one seminar or one hundred, you will always walk away with practical tools to apply in your clinic as soon as you get home. The return on investment is amazing. I highly recommend working with this group of people!”
