Master Tung Acupuncture with a focus on pain management and a masterclass on the 5 Transport Points

Course description

An introduction to Master Tung Acupuncture with a focus on pain management
Tung’s acupuncture is a classic medical line that stands for the extensive use of extra points not known in conventional acupuncture.Much more important, however, is the in-depth theory underlying this practice. It leads to a more complex understanding of the numerous relationships of yin-yang, the five phases of transformation and the zang fu.This course gives an overview of Tung’s system and a deep insight into the theory. We discuss most points of the system, its location, indications and clinical use. Beyond the basics, we deepen the insight into commonly used points and clinical strategies of pain therapy.

A masterclass on the 5 Transport Points
The five transport points are the most commonly used acupuncture points. Nevertheless, few modern therapists have a truly comprehensive understanding of how important these points really are, and how they are used to treat complex pathway organ patterns. The Nan Jing even goes so far as to urge most illnesses to be treated only with these points!This course begins with an overview of the classic texts and provides a thorough analysis of how the five transport points are used in practice. We will discuss the Qi dynamics of these points, as they are based on symptoms or time based, and the effective selection of points for toning or drainage of the channels. Then we look at the relationship between Tung’s points and the five transport points and the integration of the latter within Tung’s paradigms.

The course documents are in English language.
