products tabs

Gain a practical understanding of the energetics employed when using Master Tung’s Points. Master Tung Ching Chang was the living heir of a very unique acupuncture system. Though we can utilize our understanding of TCM from the Huang Di Nei Jing, this system stands alone. We’ll start with a brief history of Master Tung and his lineage, introduce Tung’s acupuncture, and provide an overview of the energetics employed when using Master Tung’s Points. We’ll further detail Master Tung’s Point system and review the most commonly used acupuncture points and point combinations. In this class, Susan Johnson will provide very detailed point descriptions for a wide variety of the most commonly used acupuncture points and point combinations from this system.

Susan Johnson has been practicing Tung’s Points for over 30 years. In her careful observation of their energetic effects, she has mastered the use of these extraordinary points and developed a very clear and precise way of presenting them in Seven Operative Theories. The class will begin with an introduction to Master Tung and the Tung Family Acupuncture system. In this introduction, she will utilize The Opposite Side/ Opposite End Theory to give you a good basis for your point selection when implementing this system, with a wide variety of points and point patterns that exemplify these energetic pathways.
Point selections may use five element relationships and Internal/External pairs, as well as the I-Ching connections uniquely seen in the Open/Close and Pivot pathway combinations central to correctly utilizing Tung’s points. These energetic connections are what make Tung’s acupuncture far more effective than ordinary textbook acupuncture. The crucial importance of maintaining clear energetic lines using far fewer needles and very carefully chosen points, culminating with immediate and lasting results, will be emphasized.

In this seminar, Susan Johnson’s favorite points in Master Tung’s system are presented in depth with precise anatomical location, operative theory, indications, combinations and case studies. Crystal clear video footage of each point discussed in class will give you perfect comprehension of point location and needling techniques. This seminar is designed for both beginning and advanced acupuncturists. You will be able to utilize the points immediately in your own clinical setting.
