The style of acupuncture that I have been using in prisons, immigrant shelters, impoverished mountain communities, Palestinian refugee camps, my private clinic, and the very system taught in our international courses, has transformed the practice of hundreds of acupuncturists and, more importantly, has changed the lives of thousands of patients.

Neoclassical Acupuncture

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 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 he has developed Neoclassical Acupuncture, a palpatory technique based on a 6 element model with instant results on both root and symptomatic levels. In 2019 he published Neoclassical Acupuncture. A Russian translation of the same was released in September 2021.

Neoclassical Acupuncture


Neoclassical Acupuncture takes us on an exciting odyssey into China’s ancient past to examine one of the greatest enigmas of classical Eastern medicine. At the heart of the journey lies the most perplexing organ: the pericardium. It is in the subterranean darkness of a minor nobleman’s tomb that the mystery of the Pericardium begins. A mystery that would cause a leading 18th century scholar to ask, “In the last three thousand years this has never been finally resolved… Why should misunderstanding and delusion of mankind be created just for” the Pericardium and its companion the Triple Burner? ? Following this solitary organ from its obscure origins, we discover the astonishing answer, while taking in an exciting look across the ancient landscapes from which a highly effective but heretofore lost method of acupuncture emerged. Here, for the first time, a revolutionary version of that forgotten system is exposed in detail.
