In-Depth Tung’s Points 1 + The Ancient Art of Cupping (in Kaiserslautern, Germany)

April 26 - April 28

The Ancient Art of Cupping (Friday)

Susan presents the Ancient Art of Cupping with the benefit of her numerous years in practice and years of synthesizing available information. She will begin with a lecture exploring and differentiating all the different styles of suction techniques, as well as gwa sha. Susan will discuss at length the reasons for cupping, what the various shades of color on the skin mean, how to use cupping as a diagnostic tool, and how and why toxins build up in the muscles and/or joints. Diagrams of specific cupping patterns will be provided. Significant time will be devoted to patient and doctor interface, safety concerns, and post-cupping expectations. In the late afternoon attendees will break into a clinical setting for practice of the suggested cupping patterns. Susan will demonstrate one or two important cupping patterns and then circulate as attendees work on each other.

PDA credits: 6.5 units

Handouts will be provided; no books are required.

In-Depth Tung’s Points, Part 1 (Saturday/Sunday)

The In-Depth Master Tung’s Points & Theory series, taught by Susan Johnson, is a two-weekend course designed to immerse practitioners in this profound system of acupuncture. Students are encouraged to participate in both weekends for the maximum experience, but attendance in both weekends is not required. While the Best of Master Tung’s Magic Points is an excellent introduction to this system, the number of points covered is limited. In-Depth Master Tung’s Points delves into many more points, beginning with the hands and arms on the first weekend, and moving on through the feet and legs, ending with the torso and head on the second weekend. In this more focused version of her Beginning Series, 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 two-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.

The seminars may be taken as a two-weekend series, or individually. The entire series can be taken many times, and always, new jewels will be gleaned.

In the first weekend, Susan introduces this point system, and teaches the history, beginning theory, and energetics of the points. Students learn many important points of the hands and arms, and begin points of the feet and legs.

In the second weekend, students will continue to learn points of the feet and legs, and begin to learn points of the face, head, and torso. The material concentrate on point study; rather than general theory. Sunday afternoon, Susan will present an important piece of Advanced theory.
Handouts will be provided; no books are required.
