from our students
“After several years of practicing acupuncture with unpredictable and mediocre results, I started learning about The Balance Method Acupuncture from watching YouTube videos.
At first, I was very skeptical watching this super confident yet charismatic older Asian doctor teaching his method. I kept coming back to his videos because there was something logical and intelligent about his teaching.
I took the beginning class taught by Dr Eileen Han in Chicago several years ago. She is a great teacher because even though she was teaching tons of technical acupuncture methods, I was having fun because her class was like hanging out with old friends.
The first week after taking her Balance Method class clinical outcomes dramatically improved, and my results became very predictable.
I now understand why practitioners of this method have unwavering confidence and tremendous healing power.
I’m very satisfied with the quality and integrity of this healing method. Because of this I am no longer searching for acupuncture education from any other sources.
Thank you Dr Eileen Han, and The Academy staff for sharing your knowledge with me. I’m forever grateful.”

“Dr. Eileen Han class is very entertaining and never a dull moment! Through her own unique way, she passes down the knowledge from Dr. Richard Tan (and Dr. Chao Chen & Master Tung) to all the students in an effective way. She doesn’t just teach you about Balance Method, she also shared her experience in building a successful practice. Other than acupuncture, she also teaches you about herbs and formula. She is a teacher that will never hold back any knowledge from her students; she shares everything she knows about acupuncture, herbs and running a successful clinic. I introduced 3 of my friends to her class and all of them are very happy with the class. One unique thing about her “Core Foundation Track” is the “Gong Fa” class in the first hour of the class. I really enjoy the “Gong Fa” class very much. It gives you the self-cultivation & self-caring you need in order to be an effective Acupuncturist. (“Gong Fa” class is taught by Dr. Paul Wang). Thank you Dr. Eileen Han & Dr. Wang!”

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

Thank you so much for such an inspiring seminar… I am already seeing the knowledge and confidence built in two days paying off in instant results for my patients… My sincere apologies in leaving early; I hope I didn’t miss too many precious nuggets of your wisdom. I hope to continue learning with you and coming down to SD for some clinical experience.
I am forever grateful for you and Dr. Richard Tan.”

“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. You cannot find any other group of seminars that will give you more success professionally than what you will find with The Academy. 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!”

“Eileen Han is a consummate living master of the Balance Method, having received a direct transmission from grandmaster Dr. Richard Teh-Fu Tan for over a decade. Her teaching style and depth of knowledge fully reflect her lineage.
Eileen’s classes are clear, concise, humorous, and extremely relevant to our daily practice as clinicians. Her teachings have personally revolutionized my Medical Acupuncture practice, greatly expanding the breadth of conditions I can treat, as well as significantly enhancing my clinical effectiveness. If you make only one investment in your Acupuncture practice this year, make it one of Eileen’s life-changing classes. I keep coming back to her classes because hands down, they provide the most clinically relevant diagnostic and treatment techniques – and each time I return, I learn how to put more of these highly effective balance method techniques into my clinical practice”.

“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.
As with thousands of worldwide students of Dr. Tan who is deeply saddened by his untimely passing, I was concerned about the continuation of his lifelong work and journey as a doctor. However, after having taken Dr. Han’s classes since 2016, I can honestly say that she is HANDS DOWN the best Balance Method Acupuncture teacher. Even after retaking all the beginning to advanced courses OVER AND OVER AND OVER, I’m still in awe as to how much insight she gives and how the information INSTANTLY transforms my practice when I go back to work on Monday.
I love Dr. Han’s work. Her teachings are like liquid gold. I’m also grateful for her amazing book that she painstakingly wrote with all her heart to do The Balance Method total justice. I refer to THE POWER OF THE POINTS daily in my practice.
It is extremely important to understand the fundamentals of The Balance Method. The other senior students and I value retaking the courses frequently and really putting to practice EACH SYSTEM so that we can correctly practice BM the way our Grandmaster intended.
Thank you, Eileen. My family and I love you very much. – An”

“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.”

“Dr. Eileen Han is committed to her students and the Dr. Richard Teh-Fu Tan legacy. Her values and dedication to help spread the lineage come through in each of her seminars. She is thorough, witty and fun to learn from. My entire practice has changed because of her. I’ve learned so much and will continue to take classes for years to come because I keep learning new material each time. Thank you so much, Dr. Han.”

“Since I met Dr Eileen Yue-Ling Han in 2003-04, she has been during those years a Helio Medical Supplies saleswoman, I could sense her Wisdom and how much did she care about Dr Richard Teh-Fu Tan’s Balance Method! I feel, as a veterinarian acupuncturist, more and more confident especially after following her in the last 2 years as an intern in her clinic, after seeing so many unbelievable results in animals and people! Their response (animals) is without a doubt free of placebo or subjective appreciation! I follow her lead more and more now and recommend her to my fellow veterinary Acupuncture practitioners! My everlasting gratitude.”

“Happy 4th of July, Dr. Han!!! On a day that we celebrate freedom, I want to thank you for changing my life. I attended my first BM seminar back in SD in 2017 and I immediately converted to BM. I left TCM behind because you gave me the confidence to make things happen in my practice the very next day. I am so grateful for all the hard work and knowledge that you share with us all. I love the community you’ve created and the programs that is part of the Academy. I am Anna’s student also and have grown so much in my practice because of all the knowledge you’ve given me. I love taking your classes and look forward to more classes. See you soon. So grateful for you!!!!! You’ve given me freedom in my practice.”
