Master Tung Acupuncture - Harmonizing the Seasons with Needles and Food

The Chinese seasonal calendar divides the year into four seasons: Spring, Summer, Autumn, and Winter. Each season is then further divided into six stages, with a total of 24 phases each year. Each phase lasts approximately 15 days and is determined by the position of the sun. Each time the sun advances 15 degrees around Earth, a new phase begins.

A major teaching of the ancient Chinese medical classics is how humans should live in harmony with themselves, with each other, and with the natural world. One of the most important methods of living a long and healthy life is to understand the basic patterns of the natural world and live in a way that moves with, rather than against, these patterns. If seasonal foods that are similar in nature to the external environment are consumed, we are in harmony with the environment and can adapt better to changes in the season and stay healthy. For example, in the Huang Di Nei Jing (or Neijing for short), it says, “in Spring and Summer nourish Yang, and in Autumn and Winter nourish Yin.”

In this course, author of Practical Atlas of Tung's Acupuncture and Pricking the Vessels: Bloodletting Therapy in Chinese Medicine, Dr. Henry McCann, a Master Tung’s acupuncture practitioner passionate about researching and sharing the Nourishing Life tradition of Chinese medicine, starts with an introduction of yin-yang, the 5 phases, and the seasons. He then describes the 24 seasonal nodes, and why it is important to eat according to the season. Lastly, he reveals what foods to consume and what not to consume during each of the seasonal nodes.

Upon completion of this course, practitioners will:

  • Understand what are the 24 seasonal phases

  • Learn why it is important to eat according to the season

  • Learn what food to consume during the appropriate seasonal node

Foundations of Tung’s Acupuncture

Tung’s acupuncture is a classical lineage of medicine best known for its extensive use of extra points not found in conventional acupuncture.

Class size will also be limited to provide opportunity for hand-on point location and needling practice when necessary.

Master Tung is widely celebrated as one of the greatest acupuncturists in the modern era.

Daoist Neigong & Paida Gong for the Channels

Paida Gong is the practice of patting the body to move and strengthen the Qi mechanism. This classical method of Qigong combines static standing and moving exercises with channel stimulation to systematically work each primary channel, and the Du and Ren vessels.  As part of the patting exercise we use a special herbal sack that contains a Daoist lineage formula. The practice not only strengthens the body and prevents disease, but also gives acupuncturists a true sense of Qi movement that enhances treatment ability. In addition to the Paida Gong we will also practice Daoist Neigong standing and moving postures to enhance Qi absorption and circulation. This is a rare opportunity to learn classical body-mind cultivation practices in a small group setting tailored to Chinese medicine students and practitioners. Open to PCOM students, faculty and alumni.

The Five Transport Points – A Master Class

The Five Transport Points are some of the most commonly points used in acupuncture. However, few modern practitioners have a deep understanding of how important the points are and how to use them in treating complex channel-organ patterns. Books such as the Nanjing even went as far to advocate that most problems should be treated only with these points! Staring with an overview of classical texts, this class will offer a deep analysis of how the Five Transport Points are used in the clinic. We will cover topics such as the Qi dynamics behind the points, how to chose by symptom, how to chose based on time, and the efficient choice of points to accomplish core supplementation or drainage of the channels. We will also discuss Zi Wu Liu Zhu needling – choosing points based on the hours of the day rather than symptom presentation.

Topics will include a classical look at pulse diagnosis, an overview of acupuncture channel diagnosis from the Ling Shu (which is sometimes different from the Zang-Fu based herbal diagnosis we learn in school), and the Nineteen Lines on Pathology from the Su Wen. We will also cover classical facial diagnosis, and Tung’s palm diagnosis. Finally, we will have hand-on training in using the pulse as a dynamic method of choosing the living acupuncture point for more effective treatment.

Join us for our Year of the Monkey series on Tung Acupuncture. This year we begin with an in depth look at classical Chinese hand acupuncture!

The Tung family lineage is a classical method of acupuncture dating back to the Han dynasty. One of the unique and special features of Tung’s system is that different areas of the body are used as microsystems that can treat the entire body. While most acupuncturists are familiar with hand microsystems such as Korean hand acupuncture, few are aware of classical Chinese hand acupuncture systems such as Tung’s.

We will cover all Tung’s points on the hand including many that have yet to be published in English.

Tung's Acupuncture Basic Course - Part 2 (Pennsylvania)

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.

Daoist Neigong (Taiji Stick/Ruler & 24 Seasonal Node Daoyin)

Daoist Taiji Stick and Ruler Neigong, also known as the Guiding Qi Needle, is a classical method of Qigong cultivation attributed to the Daoist Immortal Chen Tuan. Using two wooden implements, the Taiji Ruler and Taiji Stick, practitioners go through a series of exercises that build Qi in the Dantian, and then circulate it through the channels of the arms and legs, and several Extrordinary Vessels such as the Du, Ren and Dai. This not only strengthens the body and prevents disease, but it also gives acupuncturists a true sense of Qi movement that enhances their treatment ability. In addition to the Stick and Ruler Neigong we will also learn the 24 Seasonal Node Daoyin exercises, which link a specific movement to each of the 24 segments of the calendar. This series of exercises, also attributed to Chen Tuan, harmonize the body with the seasons as well as treat specific diseases. This is a rare opportunity to learn classical body-mind cultivation practices in a small group setting tailored to Chinese medicine students and practitioners.

Class meets weekly each Tuesday from 12-1pm at the Pacific College of Oriental Medicine. Open only the PCOM students, alumni and faculty. For more information please contact us.
