4 Needles Sa’am Korean Acupuncture Technique &  Abdominal Palpation Diagnostics

with Jonathan Shubs

With just 4 needles and instant feedback on treatment efficacy, the practitioner and the patient elevate the treatment process to a collaborative experience. The practitioner verifies his diagnosis instantly, and the patient feels involved and assured of the targeted outcome. 

This course uses Sa’am’s Korean 4 Needle acupuncture method to tonify, disperse, warm, or cool any meridian in the body.  By only using 4 needles (2 on each side of the body) the practitioner can initiate very powerful changes in the body.  In adding abdominal palpation the acupuncturist can make a very precise diagnosis and also receive instant feedback to the effectiveness of their treatments.  This course consists of the following:

  • An explanation of traditional 5 elements points in the body and their use in a dynamic system
  • Method of selection and step-by-step systematic understanding of how to choose the 4 needles
  • Abdominal palpation for precise diagnosis and instant feedback


  • Identify the affected element and chose the correct points to treat the affected element
  • Use abdominal palpation to diagnose and get instant feedback.
  • Understand the interactive nature of the 5 elements and how to use them
  • Be able to tonify, disperse, warm or cool a meridian using the 5 element system
