The Association for Professional Acupuncture in PA presents:
Introduction to Tung Acupuncture
Henry McCann, DAOM, L.Ac.
Tung’s acupuncture is a classical family lineage that represents an ancient system of practice that survived to the present day independent of the TCM movement. Once a guarded secret, it is characterized by a unique set of extra points, its minimal use of needles, an almost exclusive use of distal point treatment, and an extensive use of bloodletting therapy. In this two-weekend course we will cover the history, theory and clinical application of Tung’s acupuncture while learning, in depth, the location and indications of each unique extra point. Furthermore, we will look at the rational and clinical importance of distal point needling starting with classical texts such as the Nei Jing. Even if one never uses Tung’s unique points, this class will help deepen the clinicians understanding of conventional acupuncture and 12 channel theory.
Goals and Objectives:
1. Participants will learn the basic concepts of Tung’s Acupuncture, and an overview of Tung’s uniquepoint layout system.
2. Participants will learn the basics of microsystem approaches to acupuncture point selection
3. Participants will learn the locations and indications of Tung’s points in zones 1-4, 9 and 10.
4. Participants will learn the application of Dao Ma Zhen Fa and Dong Qi Zhen Fa needle techniques.
Participants will need a textbook on Tung acupuncture that covers the basic points. Dr. McCann's book may be purchased at https://www.kamwostore.com/Practical-Atlas-of-Tung-s-Acupuncture-p/bk062215.htm
