Master Tung’s Magic Points Beginning Series One


Return Policy



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

This is the first of those three workshops. Taught by Susan over Zoom in 2021, it was the first time she had taught the full Beginning Series in several years. This version of the series embodies the fullness of her experience, built up over the course of her entire career of nearly 40 years working with Master Tung's Magic Points.

Susan presents points from Master Tung’s system, including:

  • Precise anatomical location
  • Operative theory
  • Indications
  • Point combinations
  • Case studies

Crystal clear video clips demonstrate the precise point location and needling technique for points discussed in class.

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

These online 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 workshops are 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—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 of 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.

Together, all three workshops comprise the complete Master Tung’s Magic Points Beginning Series. Each can be purchased separately, or you can purchase the whole series as a bundle.

Spanning three weekends of instruction, this series is far more extensive than the one-weekend “Best Of Tung’s” or two-weekend “In-Depth” series that many of you may have already taken:

  • A total of 33.5 CEUs (for NCCAOM & CAB)
  • Get the most solid beginning foundation possible
  • 40% more points than the two-weekend series
  • Covers all the lesser-known, powerful points

Handouts will be provided; no books are required.
