WorldAcupuncture can help you to become a more complete clinician, enjoy an increasingly prosperous practice, reach your goals and have a lot more fun in the process.
Learning tonetskyu at the first workshop was great. I had been wanting
to learn that skill for ages. I do tonetsukyuu almost every day on
myself or my partner, my mother etc. God knows when I will become
competent at it but I really enjoy doing it.
Second workshop on Ikeda Sensei's point selection protocol was a
revelation. It really showcased for me what an elegant, logical theory
base is at the core of Sensei's approach to treatment. It gave me
something I could pick up and use straight away, while hinting at the
massive depth I could look forward to exploring in the art. I have
certainly had great success using root treatments. I have already got
my mother away from a decade-long dependence on expensive anti-migraine
drugs using Liver Root treatments, tonetsukyuu on KI-1 and back-shu
Third workshop at the GC was an excellent chance to observe your work
more internally. I was not in good shape at the time. It was quite
instructive to feel my body change and begin to heal within seconds of
the root tx. Your treatment of myself and others allowed me to learn
more about the way people move in and out of their constitutions, among
Fourth workshop was also huge. I've been chomping at the bit to find an
entryway into pulse and abdomen diagnosis. Now I have a bit of
direction in that regard which is very important to me. The theory
portion on lung deficiency/kidney deficiency/liver excess was also very
Basically I want to tell you that I am enormously grateful for the
training you are providing. You are providing all of your students with
a doorway into great depth of understanding and skill. I had always
suspected that such depth existed within the art, but how can it be
accessed from a book or a place like ACNM? I was honestly a bit crushed
to hear that you were considering not doing any more workshops due to
poor attendance. I'm prepared to pay more if it will make it worth your
while. It's very valuable to have time where your attention is focused
directly on instructing/correcting technique/explaining theory etc. For
me, it is an important synergist with the clinical observation time,
allowing more of it to make sense.
Last workshop on the Goldie was really a big buzz for me. I really
enjoyed the format and I got a lot from being treated and see other
people being treated. I am starting to get my head around the
treatments. Very exciting time. So big thanks to you.
Thanks so much for the workshop on the Gold Coast last Saturday, it was
a great start and I am really looking forward to further workshops and
learning from you.

You just made my day!
I got your mail, went to your site and started reading everything from
chronic fatigue syndrome to pre and post natal care, getting all buzzed
up on my chair at the internet cafe in the beautiful hill town called
the McCloudganj, the present home of Dalai Lama by the foothills of the
As I was getting excited of everything I was reading and just feeling
the Ki circulating in me by the mere thought of how different
treatments work, I started feeling this familiar nervous tickle inside
me which is caused by the understanding I always have while
learning more about acupuncture, of how much more there is for me to learn and
how every day at a clinic and with a patient is like a new day again
(which though, makes the work all the more pleasurable to wake up
to also;) ).
And as much as I enjoy the feeling and understand how I'm only at the
beginning of my journey, I do get frustrated when I feel insecure with
what I know so far when by the side of a client and only being able to
do the 'best' i know and can how to,
So inspired by this frustrated tickle I clicked the link 'from
practitioners perspective' on your sight and found a familiar name with
a familiar face and got a taste of my fifteen minutes of fame.
The post was cool and you inspired me yet again with a funniest way
when a little kick was what I actually needed. What I didn't mention
before is how valuable your newsletters and sight has turned out to be
for me when travelling and working in the places I have been working
and often being alone with what I do, missing the companion and
quidance of other acupuncturists.
So a big thanks to you again as well as the wonderful possibilities the world wide web provides us!
A freshly inspired mountain air hello from me again, Have a Great Day!

Suffice it to say that I am waiting on the edge of my seat for your new
Blog AND the launch of your new website!! Congratulations! I am sure
the acupuncture profession will benefit from your years of experience,
knowledge, and perspective (not to mention, sense of humor). Thanks for
putting it all together for the rest of us to learn from and grow.

Thank you so much for the last clinic session.
I enjoyed it so much, it was beautiful to have a child as a patient.
I know that i will learn a lot beside you.

to reignite my interest in Acupuncture through his teaching and his
relating of his own personal experience on the subject. I found him to

years of practical experience.”

"My excessively strong and simplistic acupuncture techniques, after
several years, left me professionally unsatisfied and on the verge of
quitting. Since then I have had the opportunity, in Alan’s centre, to
observe more subtle techniques and a clear congruency between practice
and theory. The result was an awakening to the versatility and
potential of acupuncture and a desire for further investigation and
discovery. An ongoing professional development program with a suitable
practitioner is highly recommended for those professionals striving to
achieve more for their patients."

“Alan has been
kind enough to take time out of his busy schedule to come down to
Melbourne for the past 4 years to hold workshops on Traditional
Japanese Acupuncture. They have certainly helped many of us during
these particularly difficult years of establishing our clinics, and we
always come away from his workshops highly inspired and filled with
much new knowledge.”

“I am indebted
to Alan Jansson for providing me with the tools to review, absorb,
study and learn. The rewards have been so tangible - my skills and
effectiveness as an acupuncturist have expanded exponentially in just a
few years. I am just a beginner, but already so many more patients have
been helped. Thank you!”
