The Neoclassical Acupuncture system is a results-oriented, palpatory system that yields immediate results on both root and symptomatic levels. Join Dr. Slate Burris for a unique opportunity to learn the the complete Neoclassical Acupuncture Meridian Level treatment in a a live in-person format, with plenty of time for treatment and feedback from Dr. Burris. For people who have already taken the Foundation Course online, it is a is a great opportunity to master this aspect of this system which is normally not covered in the Foundation and Advanced Masterclasses. There are no prerequisites for this course, so it is for newcomers and experienced alumni alike!


Course Description

The main theme for Day 1 of the Masterclass is Energetic Engineering, this can be defined as understanding the interconnectivity between the meridians and the use of this understanding to open (and close) them at will. Participants will learn a revolutionary approach in which up to 3 meridians can be opened with one needle. Opening a meridian implies removing pain along the entire length of a meridian. This level is still considered symptomatic to some extent, as the practitioner would need to know the area of sensitivity before the treatment takes place. Proper point location via patient feedback will also be discussed and demonstrated. As this is a Masterclass, for the last part of today’s class students will be treating under instructor supervision. There will also be plenty of demonstrations.

Day 2, a new ‘rule’ will also be introduced which permits the participant to open 4 meridians with one needle. This new technique is important as it allows us to enter into the day’s main theme: Energetic Architecture. In this new method, the participant’s knowledge of Energetic Engineering (the interconnectivity of meridians) will be put to use to examine a meta-structure of the meridians with which with one needle all meridians can be opened instantaneously. Here we will penetrate the deepest level of the meridian system and in a majority of cases at least 60-70% of symptomatic complaints can be removed with just one needle, without knowing the symptoms beforehand. Additional techniques will be taught such as the “sweeping errant energy,” and how to close meridians (in order to avoid doing so accidentally). As this is a Masterclass, for the last part of today’s class students will be treating under instructor supervision. There will also be plenty of demonstrations.

Course Instructor

Dr. Slate Burris

Dr. Slate Burris received his degree in Philosophy at Bucknell University. After a year in China under the tutelage of Master Wang Si Ping, he completed his Masters in Acupuncture and Oriental Medicine at Oregon College of Oriental Medicine. He later received his Doctorate from Pacific
College of Oriental medicine.

He moved to Mexico in 2008 to organize free clinics in the mountains of Oaxaca and Michoacan. He was for several years an ardent student of Kiiko Matsumoto’s and Tung’s styles of acupuncture. Through his study in the classics and clinical experience, over the past decade and a half he has developed Neoclassical Acupuncture, a palpatory technique based on a 6 element model with instant results on both root and symptomatic levels. In the last couple of years, Neoclassical Acupuncture has become one of the fastest growing movements in the acupuncture world today.

In 2019 Dr. Burris published the book Neoclassical Acupuncture. A Russian translation of the same was released in September 2021, while a Spanish version was published in 2022. He was the main speaker at the 15th Annual All-Russian Conference of Acupuncturists 2020 as well as 3rd Annual All-Russian Scientific and Practical Conference 2022. He still lives in Mexico with his wife, 2 children, and faithful dog, from where he travels extensively, training thousands of acupuncturists in Mexico, Russia, Europe, Australia and the US.
