1. Foundations of Master Tung Acupuncture
CEU Hours: Category 1, 32 CEUs are pending by the California Acupuncture Board
Instructor: Dr. Henry McCann, L.Ac, DAOM
Didactic lectures and practical application (32 CEU’s): December 1st – 4th, 2017 (9:00am – 6:00pm)
Master Tung is widely celebrated as one of the greatest acupuncturists in the modern era. While the system he taught was previously transmitted only within very closed circles, he made the decision to disseminate this knowledge more widely in order to raise the general level of medical practice. Fast-forwarding several decades, we now have many books and resources, and many great teachers granting access to this highly practical system to interested acupuncturists all over the world.
Tung’s system is praised for its clinical effectiveness, and is often transmitted as simply using points that are associated with symptoms. Dr. Henry McCann’s background as a scholar of the Han classics allow him to go deeper in order to elucidate the theoretical principles and therapeutic strategies that underlie and guide Master Tung’s system. In this lecture Dr. McCann will teach the three main theories that guide point selection: image correspondence, channel correspondence, and tissue correspondence. He will then teach the most useful points from each of the body regions, elaborating on point location, indications, functions, and combinations for specific applications.
All participants should bring a Tung Acupuncture Manual, so they could reference the the points as we go along.
