About the event

Introduction 

In the realm of traditional Chinese medicine, Master Tung's Acupuncture (MTA) stands out as a remarkably effective approach, particularly in the treatment of pain related to the spine and extremities. MTA introduces us to pivotal points, with Linggu and Dabai being recognized as among the most potent for alleviating pain. The increasing popularity of MTA in recent years can be attributed to its impressive efficacy in managing various pain conditions.

My clinical journey with MTA has been enlightening, especially in the context of treating chronic pain syndromes characterized by a mix of excess and deficiency patterns. Conditions such as osteoarthritis, whiplash, and frozen shoulder have shown significant improvement under MTA treatment. This form of acupuncture offers a nuanced approach that targets the underlying imbalances, providing not just symptomatic relief but also working towards a more holistic healing.

As we embark on this course, we will delve deeper into the principles of Master Tung's Acupuncture, exploring its methodologies and the profound impact it can have on pain management. Join me in uncovering the secrets of MTA and enhancing our skills in offering effective pain relief to our patients.

Learn more on MTA Acupuncture  

Initially, Master Tung's Acupuncture was a closely guarded oral tradition, exclusively passed down within the Tung family. Breaking with this tradition in 1962 in Taipei, Master Tung accepted his first disciple from outside the family. In 1973, he authored his first textbook, 'Dong Shi Zhen Jiu Zheng Jing Qi Xue Xue' (董氏针灸正经奇穴学), translated as 'Tung’s Extraordinary Acupoints on Ordinary Channels'. This was a culmination of his experience, intended for educational purposes. Today, it stands as one of the most sought-after and esteemed schools of acupuncture.

Studying MTA is particularly beneficial because it offers:

  1. A novel understanding of points from the first acupuncture classic, 'Huang Di Ming Tang Jing' (Yellow Emperor's Bright Hall Classic), published approximately 138 BC to 106 AD, with points distributed by zone rather than in a meridian.
  2. Direct effects on targeted organs, tissues, and pathogens, e.g., ovary point, liver gate, brain, San Chong (Three Levels) for tumors due to Qi stagnation.
  3. Strong effects as 2 or 3 acupoints are selected in the same area simultaneously, e.g., Si Ma (Three Horses) for various lung diseases, Xia San Huang (Lower Three Emperors) for various kidney deficiency disorders.
  4. A limited number of points, usually in two regions, combined based on the Sheng-ke theory of the five elements.
  5. Smart location between channels, meaning one point can regulate two channels.

Consequently, MTA points are notably effective in treating pain and chronic organ disorders, including a combination of deficiency and excess conditions, such as asthma, Bi-syndrome, and gynecological disorders."
