Tung's Acupuncture: Needling the Distant Path - 2nd section
Due to popular demand this is an encore presentation of the November 8, 2012 Meetup
Tung’s (Dong's) acupuncture is a classical lineage of medicine that relies almost exclusively on minimal distal point needling. The most obvious feature of this lineage is an extensive use of extra points and the use of numerous microsystems arranged over every area of the body. This systems approach to acupuncture challenges the basic assumption that local needling is either necessary or even desirable, and can improve clinical efficacy with very simple needling. This introduction will give a background on Tung's system and introduce some essential points that an acupuncturist can start using immediately.
Henry McCann, DAOM, LAc, is an expert on Tung's acupuncture and has taught this classical system in Ireland, Germany and Austria. He also teaches Tung's acupuncture for the the Oregon College of Oriental Medicine's doctoral degree program. He specializes in geriatric conditions and the treatment of chronic difficult to treat disorders. Dr. McCann graduated from the New England School of Acupuncture and then finished his doctoral degree at the Oregon College of Oriental Medicine. He is the author of Pricking The Vessels: Bloodletting Therapy in Chinese Medicine, and A Practical Atlas of Tung's Acupuncture (to be released in 2012).
