Dr. Dirk P. Hein has been in private practice in Seattle for almost 40 years. He has a “Master of Acupuncture” degree from the College of Traditional Chinese Acupuncture in England where he studied under the tutelage and guidance of the late Professor JR Worsley, for whom he later organized seminars, clinical intensives, and master-classes.
He holds a teaching degree from the Worsley Institute of Classical Acupuncture and received his blessing from Dr. Worsley to teach Five Element Acupuncture to carry on the tradition of this medicine the Professor brought to the West.
Dr. Hein was the founder and director of Wu Hsing Tao School for 20 years which trained Classical Five Element Acupuncturists, with Alumni disseminating this tradition of Acupuncture throughout Washington, Montana, Oregon, Texas, North Carolina, Georgia, and Canada. The program he developed there reflects his teaching experience as a faculty member of several institutions where he taught Five Element Acupuncture, including the Worsley Institute of Classical Acupuncture and the Academy of Five Element Acupuncture in Florida, Bastyr University of Natural Medicine, the Northwest Institute of Acupuncture and Oriental Medicine in Seattle, and the Canadian College of Oriental Studies in Victoria, B.C. At Antioch University he taught Taoist philosophy.
He presented at the Northwest Conference on Acupuncture and Oriental Medicine for several years, as well as at the Symposium for Classical Five Element Acupuncture in Los Angeles. For the Acupuncture Association of Washington, he was a two-term president, published in the association’s journal, and was chairman of Washington State Acupuncture Advisory Committee to the Department of Health.
He holds a Ph.D. in health education and his dissertation lays out his methodology of teaching this system of medicine and how to develop the student into an"Instrument of Healing," versus a mere acupuncture technician. He appeared on radio and TV and holds public lectures on how to attune to the universal energy found in nature.
Dirk Phirose Hein is an ordained "Cherag," a Reverend and minister of the Sufi Inayati Order.
"Health has always been a tender subject for me since I was very young. Severe illness and near-fatal accidents repeatedly made health and life new gifts for me. My exposure to the teachings of mystics and spiritual teachers, from Christian to Zen and Sufi, to thinkers like the German writer and philosopher Goethe. The idea that God can be experienced in the “wholeness of nature," paved the way for me to look for the matrix of a Higher Intelligence in the Natural Laws outlined in the science of Taoist naturalists who discovered acupuncture."
