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 2 2017 will take place on 18th - 20th May 2018 in Stevenage,UK. It is north of London and near Luton and Stansted airports.
ADVANCED TUNG ACPUNCTURE COURSE PART 2: WHAT YOU WILL LEARN
This two-weekend seminar is designed for both beginning and advanced students, and the points are appropriate for practitioners at every level. In the beginning stages of learning this point system, students find that it’s an invaluable recipe book—it’s simple to learn, useful, and effective right away. The complexities and deeper connections of the system become clear as practitioners study these points again and again. Susan continuously expands her own understanding about the points and includes new information and case studies each time she teaches. These classes are very relevant for practitioners who want to review their techniques.
These seminars are an exceptional opportunity to learn Master Tung’s points, fondly referred to as “magic” points. Some people dislike the word “magic” in reference to the points, but you might decide for yourself after trying out Master Tung’s Points. Not only can they be understood using the Nine Star/Magic Square theory of the I-Ching, Tung’s Points are also immediately useful, and in most cases, have instant and lasting results.
Day One and Day Two: Tung’s Points Supervision and Practicum
In supervision class you will learn how to find the exact point location, first through the body’s landmarks and then through concise palpation. The best points, faultlessly needled, should have a tangible effect within moments of their application. This is what you will learn to expect from properly needling Tung’s points. Susan and her carefully chosen supervisors will help you to recognize what might be an incorrect needling of Master Tung’s Points and give you the understanding you need to perfect your point location and needling techniques. In the Supervision class, you will learn how to perfectly execute the most commonly used points in this extraordinary system of acupuncture. Whether you have been practicing for decades or perhaps only months, you will benefit from Susan’s careful guidance and personal attention to detail, as she critiques the needling experience of her students, on different body shapes and sizes.
Susan maintains a supportive, informative, encouraging and inspirational environment for the optimum learning of these points. The practice of needling Tung’s Points while being supervised by Susan and her best supervisors is invaluable in assuring that every point is flawlessly applied and perfected.
Class size will be limited so early booking is advisable.
Day Three: The Ancient Art of Bleeding
This day may be booked separately from day one and two.
The Ancient Art of Bleeding is a cross-cultural modality used from time immemorial, in ancient Egypt, India, the Middle East and throughout all of Asia. In Chinese medicine, bleeding is commonly referred to as: pricking bleeding, micro-puncture, triangular needling or simply, blood-letting. This course is designed to explore: the origins of blood-letting; different styles and forms of bleeding; sterile technique and safety concerns; and to provide instruction on a wide variety of points that are bled for common ailments.
This class begins with an introduction to bleeding techniques, followed by a narrated slideshow from Susan’s 1987 trip to HeFei Research Hospital, in China, with Dr. Miriam Lee, where they studied bleeding techniques with a third generation bleeding expert, Dr. Wang Xiu-Zhen. Susan discusses: sterile technique; different sizes and types of bleeding needles, including disposable hypodermic needle tips and lancets; points that are commonly bled; bamboo cupping; and some interesting case studies.
Lecture will continue with the theory behind the use of bleeding, including seven distinct functions of bleeding; further safety concerns, including sterilization and the proper disposal of blood products; knowing the laws regarding bleeding; superficial bleeding, like: seven-star hammering; common conditions that are bled; a slideshow of bleeding being done in New Delhi; a slideshow of bamboo cupping being performed in Viet Nam; and a series of six movie clips from Susan’s previous bleeding classes, used to demonstrate different bleeding techniques.
In the afternoon, Susan will demonstrate as many different bleeding techniques as time allows, including: superficial and deep bleeding, seven star hammering of the toxin areas, bleeding the knees for herpes, bamboo cupping of the spine, DT07 Three Gold bleeding and bleeding the sacrum. Students from the class will volunteer for these demonstrations. Attention will be given to setting up for a bleeding technique, performing the technique and attending to aftercare and cleaning the treatment area.
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 the point location. 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.
Price for 3-day Advanced Course Part 2 is £540. For Day One and Two only (supervision class) it is £360. For Day Three only (bleeding day) it is £180
Payment is required to reserve a place. The prices and payment page has the payment details. These prices are early bird rates that expire on 6th April 2018. For prices after this date see prices and payment page.
