Classical Chinese Handacupunctur in the Tung family style

Course description

Classical Chinese Hand Acupuncture – The Tung Family Tradition
The Tung family lineage is a classical method of acupuncture dating back to the Han dynasty. One of the unique and special features of Tung’s system is that different areas of the body are used as microsystems that can treat the entire body. While most acupuncturists are familiar with hand microsystems such as Korean hand acupuncture, few are aware of classical Chinese hand acupuncture systems such as Tung’s. This course will introduce the essential concepts of Tung’s approach to treatment with a focus on the hand microsystem in managing a wide range of conditions including both pain management and internal medicine. We will cover essential Tung’s points on the hand that yield immediate results, and can be used either as a stand alone approach, or combined with other systems of acupuncture.

Bloodletting in Tung’s Acupuncture
Bloodletting therapy, which works to remove internal and external disruptions to the system through the withdrawal of small quantities of blood, has numerous benefits, especially concerning the treatment of complex or chronic disease. Master Tung’s bleeding technique is a specialized approach that can yield dramatically effective results when the patient’s condition has been properly diagnosed and the therapeutic technique is correctly performed. Join Dr. Henry McCann, author of Pricking the Vessels: Bloodletting Therapy in Chinese Medicine, as he shares how and when to correctly perform bloodletting techniques.
In this course, Dr. McCann shares the theory and functions of bloodletting and provides detailed instructions on its clinical uses. In addition, he will clarify the fundamental Chinese medical theory related to blood and the network vessels, and provide an in-depth discussion on the benefits of and practice guidelines for bloodletting.

Tung’s Essential Points for Gynecology
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 associate Tung’s acupuncture with pain management, it is equally effective in internal medicine, especially the management of women’s health.
In this course, Dr. McCann, co-author with Dr. Hans-Georg Ross of Practical Atlas of Tung’s Acupuncture, shares the top Tung points used for gynecology that yield results with conditions such as irregular menses, dysmenorrhea, infertility, disorders of the breast, spontaneous habitual miscarriage, and other problems related to women’s health. Detailed descriptions of Master Tung’s point locations, functions, and indications will be covered in this course, as well as basic theory, needle technique, and clinical strategy.

The course documents are in English language.
