Master Tung's system of unique extra points is famous for its clinical efficacy, its simple needle techniques, and use of minimal points even in complex and chronic conditions. While most acupuncturists associated Tung’s acupuncture with pain management, it is equally effective in internal medicine, especially the management of women’s health.
Detailed descriptions of Master Tung's point locations, functions, and indications are covered in this course, as well as basic theory, needle technique, and clinical strategy.

3. Advanced Acupuncture for Anxiety, Insomnia & Depression by Susie Hayes
As a conscientious Acupuncturist, it is imperative to consider the mental and emotional well-being of a patient to arrive at an accurate diagnosis and effective treatment plan. Ancient medical texts from thousands of years ago insist upon an inextricable link between mental and physical health, giving tremendous importance to the Mental (Jing Shen) in physiology and all considerations of pathological prognoses.
You will receive a unique synthesis from the ancient medical texts, as clinically practiced, researched, and taught by Tran Viet Dzung, MD over the past several decades, a clinical approach that continues to be practiced by thousands of acupuncturists and doctors throughout the world. Reflecting his view of the integral nature of Jing Shen in health and illness, Dr. Tran is often heard noting that "the Mental is everything!"
