The Master Tung’s Magic Points Beginning series, taught by Susan Johnson, is a three-weekend series designed to immerse practitioners in this profound system of acupuncture.

This is the first of three weekend workshops taught by Susan over Zoom in 2021. It was the first time she had taught the full Beginning Series in several years. Although the three workshops are intended to be taken as a series, they may also be taken individually.

While the Best of Master Tung’s Magic Points is an excellent introduction to this system, the number of points covered is limited. By contrast, the Beginning Series delves into many more points, beginning with the hands and arms, and moving on through the feet and legs, and ending with the torso and head.

Susan presents points from Master Tung’s system with precise anatomical location, operative theory, indications, point combinations, and case studies. Crystal clear video clips demonstrate the precise point location and needling technique for points discussed in class.

Students will learn unique and practical tools that will allow them to use the points immediately and effectively.

This three-weekend seminar is designed for both beginning and advanced students, and the points are appropriate for practitioners at every level. In the beginning stages of learning this point system, students find that it’s an invaluable recipe book—it’s simple to learn, useful, and effective right away.

The complexities and deeper connections of the system become clear as practitioners study these points again and again. Susan continuously expands her own understanding about the points, and includes new information and case studies each time she teaches. These classes are very relevant for practitioners who want to review their techniques.

These seminars are an exceptional opportunity to learn Master Tung’s points, fondly referred to as “magic” points. Some people dislike the word “magic” in reference to the points, but you might decide for yourself after trying out Master Tung’s Points.

Handouts will be provided; no books are required.
