Year of the Ram Tung Series - Tung's Acupuncture Part 2 (Continued)

  • Institute for Classical Asian Medicine 12 Main St Madison, NJ, 07940 United States (map)

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 four-day 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. Unlike other courses this one will be limited to a small number of participants so material can be transmitted in more depth with adequate time for questions and practice.  NCCAOM Approved for 14 PDA/CEU hours (for 2 days - first half of class to be held on April 19). $400 for both days, $375 for NJAAOM members or students currently enrolled in a Master's degree program. Please contact us for more information or to register. PARTICIPANTS ARE LIMITED TO 12 – PLEASE REGISTER EARLY. PART 1 IS A PREREQUISITE FOR THIS CLASS.
