Promote Positive Healing with Transformational Acupuncture

Transformational Acupuncture provides acupuncture practitioners with a holistic technique for treating anxiety and depression.

Depression and Anxiety Are Roadblocks to Healing

Your patients that suffer from depression and anxiety often find it difficult to see results – leading to feelings of frustration, hopelessness, and a lack of control.

For experienced practitioners, your empathy and desire to make a positive difference can result in a mirroring effect.

In the end, you also begin to feel frustrated at your inability to help them.

The Limits of Traditional Western Medicine

Traditional Western medicine is excellent at looking at the anatomy of a patient at a microscopic level, finding high-performance medications, or surgical interventions.

These aspects of medicine do transform lives. But sometimes, especially with patients who suffer from psychological issues such as depression and anxiety, it doesn’t go far enough.

For these individuals, a new approach is needed that also encourages acceptance, responsibility, and well-being. To achieve this, we need to search beyond the limits of traditional Western medicine.

Combining the Physical and the Spiritual For Holistic Healing

How would your patients who suffer from anxiety and depression benefit from a greater sense of agency, presence, and more confidence in you as a professional?

That’s what Transformational Acupuncture offers.

Transformational Acupuncture combines Traditional Chinese Acupuncture with the Indian Ayurvedic understanding of the body. At its core, Transformational Acupuncture is a gentle approach that involves the painless insertion of needles to promote a profound effect on both the psyche and the body.

Above all, what sets Transformational Acupuncture apart is that it’s a specific, scientific system with defined protocols that has a demonstrated effect in numerous case studies.

With specialized skills training in Traditional Acupuncture, you can:

Encourage your patients to take responsibility for their own well-being.

Learn the science and philosophy behind Transformational Acupuncture.

Gain the skills and techniques to provide patients with holistic, ongoing support.

Act as a guide to change lives and help others find peace.

How Transformational Acupuncture Changes Lives

I was a general practitioner for 20 years before discovering acupuncture and was instantly fascinated. Even though it was based on traditional Chinese medicine from 2,000 years ago, the science displayed an incredible understanding of how systems in the body functions.

By incorporating it into my treatment portfolio, I could provide my patients access to holistic physical and emotional treatment when other approaches weren’t working.

On a personal level, I got more clients and appointments and increased my confidence in my ability to get results.

But as a scientist, I wanted to see if it really worked or if my own biases were influencing me. I decided to carry out a survey of 70 patients who took part in Transformational Acupuncture over an eight-week period.

Here are the results


reported that acupuncture affected them in a positive way.


experienced relief of physical or mental discomfort.


said that they had a spiritual experience or an emotional release.


reported feeling more relaxed.


reported any adverse effects.

Here’s What They’re Saying…


I had a new client, a 26-year-old dealing with two years of persistent back pain (no injury) and feeling stressed with a lot going on. I was a bit worried that he never had acupuncture before and looked slightly uncomfortable lying on his face down. [From what I learned from Day 1 of the TAI workshop,] I thought PQFP was more suitable than AQFP for him. 40 minutes later, I found him peacefully asleep! He looked so relaxed and said felt everything a lot less tense. I saw the result on his face!
