Take part in this rare classroom experience. Learn the Magic Points of Master Tung Ching–Chang clearly presented by seasoned practitioner Susan Johnson, L.Ac.

Course description:

Two weekends of 3-day classes will conclude the Master Tung’s Magic Points Comprehensive Series. Students are expected to have some previous experience with the material, unless pre-approved by the instructor. In these two weekends, students will be given a wealth of practical information, and will experience supervised clinical learning.



The two Fridays, October 12 and November 30, will be purely academic. In a classroom setting, the instructor will provide an expanded way of looking at Tung’s Points, by differential diagnosis and disease. Rather than focusing on the points by their anatomical location, as in the Beginning Series, we will study the various points that might be used in treating each particular condition, as determined through differential diagnosis. For example, students will learn how to determine which points to use for certain types of sciatica, headache, asthma, etc. Each of these disease processes can be addressed in multiple ways using Tung’s Points. It is important that students can easily recognize which type of headache they are observing, and how to best go about treating the patient. A wide variety of ailments and their treatment options will be covered. Combinations of Tung’s Points patterns will be formally introduced. Time will be allotted to answering students’ questions, troubleshooting difficult or challenging cases, and championing their successes.

The objectives of the academic portion of the Advanced Series are: to provide practitioners with a clear understanding of differential diagnosis and treatment protocols in relation to Tung’s Points; to help them understand the energetic ways in which point patterns can be intelligently combined to enhance a treatment, or poorly combined to detract or make a treatment ineffective; and to provide a forum for practitioners to receive assistance, support, and encouragement. This is the most academically challenging portion of the Advanced Series.

Saturday’s practicum courses, October 13 and December 1 will take place in a large clinical setting, and will give practitioners the opportunity to practice point location and techniques when using Tung’s Points. Assistant Supervisors will provide each student with individual attention, critique, and support regarding their needling. Students will practice on each other; those with needle phobias or other special needs will be tended to. All acupuncture supplies will be provided.

The objectives of the supervised practice portion of the Advanced Series are: to examine and perfect each practitioner’s point locations and needling techniques used with Tung’s Points; to build practitioner confidence and skill; and to answer questions and concerns that practitioners may have regarding the practical use of Tung’s Points.

The two Sundays, October 14 and December 2, will be devoted to advanced techniques related to the use of Tung’s Points. The first Sunday will begin with a lecture on The Ancient Art of Cupping, which will conclude after lunch. This lecture will include all the different styles of suction technique, as well as gwa sha. Most importantly, significant time will be devoted to patient and doctor interface, safety concerns, and post-cupping expectations. Reasons for cupping and diagrams of cupping patterns will be provided. During the second half of the afternoon, we will break into a clinical setting again, for supervised practice of the suggested cupping patterns. Students are requested to bring pump-up style cups for practicing. No fire cupping will be permitted. The instructor will demonstrate one or two cupping patterns, as desired. Sunday, December 2, the morning will be devoted to lecture and films; demonstration by the instructor will take place after lunch. Students will sit around a central body table and observe. Many different advanced needling techniques will be discussed, as will indications and contraindications, questions, cases, and problem-solving.

The objectives of the advanced techniques portion of the Advanced Series are: to provide Tung’s Points practitioners with the instructor’s best scope of practice, gleaned through more than 25 years of practical clinical experience; and to teach practitioners what they need to know to provide excellent health care for their patients in a safe, sterile, sensitive, and effective way.
