Master Tung’s Acupuncture (MTA) is not only effective to treat pain but also internal disorders of organs. The five phases and Zangfu organs play the most important role in understanding the indications of MTA points. For instance, Si Ma, Ling Gu and Da Bai belong to the category of the lungs. How to understand the philosophy of this categorizing? Li Ting’s thoughts on “Extraordinary Connections between Zang and Fu Organs”, published in 1575 can well explain this.
In this seminar, my course will cover the following topics
1.Review on the physiology and pathology of the lungs and large intestine in TCM

3.Selected 19 MTA points for the lungs and large intestine, e.g. Ling Gu, Da Bai, Si Ma,
4.Hand to hand instruction on MTA needling techniques (is possible)
