Tung Acupunture Courses by Susan Johnson
D R Events is proud to host Susan Johnson's visit to the UK in order to teach Master Tung’s legendary traditional family lineage Acupuncture system. Master Tung Ching-Chang has been referred to as “The greatest acupuncture technician who ever lived.”
He was a traditional Chinese physician from Shandong Province, China and was famous for the miraculous and spontaneous results he would often obtain using just a few needles distally & contralaterally. He often treated very large numbers of people a day.
The unique Tung points and imaging theories used in Master Tung’s Acupuncture family system are not based upon syndrome differentiation but trace their origin to the Nei Jing. We can trace this system over 600 years but some sources state that it is more than 1500 years old. As this is a oral tradition handed down for many generations, its influence may be wider than is known about. Only in recent years do we have the written resources that we have now.

The Master Tung's Advanced Acupuncture Course Part 1 2017 will take place on 9th - 11th June 2017 in Stevenage,UK. It is north of London and near Luton and Stansted airports.
ADVANCED TUNG ACPUNCTURE COURSE PART 1: WHAT YOU WILL LEARN
Day One and Day Two: Master Tung’s Acupuncture Magic Points by disease rather than location. This class is critical for learning point combinations, and provides differential disease diagnosis using Tung’s Points.
In a classroom setting, the instructor will provide an expanded way of looking at Tung’s Points, by differential diagnosis and disease. Rather than focusing on the points by their anatomical location, as in the Beginning Series, we will study the various points that might be used in treating each particular condition, as determined through differential diagnosis. For example, students will learn how to determine which points to use for certain types of sciatica, headache, asthma, etc. Each of these disease processes can be addressed in multiple ways using Tung’s Points. It is important that students can easily recognize which type of headache they are observing, and how to best go about treating the patient. A wide variety of ailments and their treatment options will be covered. Combinations of Tung’s Points patterns will be formally introduced. Time will be allotted to answering students’ questions, troubleshooting difficult or challenging cases, and championing their successes.
Day Three: The Ancient Art and Science of Cupping. Susan offers detailed instructions on when to use cupping patterns. The class includes precise anatomical descriptions of muscle groups and how they are best cupped, as well as demonstration, diagrams, and some guided practice.
1) To provide the Licensed Acupuncturist with the opportunity to acquire the practical knowledge required, in the proper use of Master Tung’s Points.
2) Where points were studied in-depth and anatomically in the Beginning Series, in the Advanced Series they are discussed through the lens of ‘differential diagnosis by disease.’ Points and point combinations are offered and grouped accordingly. A completely different perspective on the points being given, this series makes the Tung’s Points system very valuable in a clinical setting. The objective is to understand the points.
Is this course suitable for beginners?
It is fine to do this course in a different order, before having done the Beginning Series and several students have done this before. However, it is necessary to do some preliminary study in your own time, prior to the course. The Advanced Course will not review the details and location of the points and will focus on how to use the points for treating specific diseases. If you wish to attend this course without having previously studied Tung's points, we will email you a colour coded index of the most important points that will be covered. We can also send you a hard copy of the notes for the Beginning Series, which are an invaluable study aid, for a price of £90. Alternatively you can purchase Dr Wei Chei Young's Points Study book to study the points.
