Tung’s Points Practicum & Supervision, Dana Point, CA

February 22, 2019 - February 23, 2019

$495.00 – $600.00

The dates for this event are Friday, February 22nd and
Saturday, February 23rd

The two most common reasons acupuncture treatments are ineffective are
inappropriate diagnosis and inaccurate point location. The late Dr. Miriam Lee would
say, “you must find the right key to open each lock.” She was right about that, and
Master Tung’s Magic Points offer the acupuncture practitioner just those options. No
matter what you are treating, once you have studied Tung acupuncture you will
recognize many differing points or patterns to choose from when contemplating each
patient’s situation. However, if your point location is inaccurate your treatment still may
not work.

In this workshop you will practice finding the exact point location, first through the
body’s landmarks and then through concise palpation. The best points, faultlessly
needled, should have a tangible effect within moments of their application. This is what
you will learn to expect from correctly needling Tung’s points. Susan and her seasoned
teaching assistants will help you recognize what might be incorrect about your needling
of Master Tung’s Points and give you the feedback you need to perfect your point
location and needling techniques. You will learn how to perfectly execute the most

commonly used points in this extraordinary system of acupuncture. Whether you have
been practicing for decades or perhaps only months, you will benefit from hands-on
practice, careful guidance and personal attention. Only upon completion of Susan’s
supervised practicum will she consider you to be a true Tung practitioner.

You will practice on each other, in rotation, to experience different body shapes and
sizes. Needle-phobics and pregnant practitioners are welcomed and will work together
with others of like sensitivities. Very fine needles in small diameters will be provided for
comfortable needling.
Upon completion of this seminar you will be able to:

Identify points and point patterns on differing shapes, lengths and sizes of bodies.

Explain the difference that needle diameter can make.

Demonstrate the most effective positioning of the patient and also of themselves in
order to best needle different points and patterns.

Practice how to palpate the body to ‘feel’ for the acupuncture points.

Practice how to accurately find the most commonly used points in Tung’s Acupuncture
