THE COMPLETE COURSE OF TUNG’S ACUPUNCTURE
This is a 4-day foundation course appropriate for TCM practitioners with many years to no experience in Tung’s Acupuncture. This class will start with an explanation of the theory behind Tung’s acupuncture using Nei Jing and Yi Jing. Then we will go into depth about each point: its location, indication, and theory. The goal of this course is to come away with a clear comprehension of the theory, location, and application of Tung’s points. This course will also be supplemented by many clinical case stories as well as demonstrations.
PREREQUISITE: This is the prerequisite for other advanced courses held by Dr. Young. This course is held typically once a year in June, given in Mandarin and translated to English.

SHANG HAN LUN
This is a special seminar on the application of commonly used herbal formulas in Shang Han Lun. Dr. Young taught on this topic only in PhD courses prior. This seminar was initiated after many requests this year and future scheduling for this course is indefinite. Though this is a three-day seminar, attendees will receive course handouts a month in advance to study at home. The home-study material will supplement a day’s worth of material to the three-day seminar to ensure grasp of the material. Dr. Young typically focuses on concept, proficiency and experience when teaching in schools; but this seminar will provide on technique, insights and innovations. PREREQUISITE: This course is held in Mandarin only at this time.
HANDS-ON TEACHING OF POINTS LOCATING
This is a new class added this year (2014) due to the request from students seeking more instruction in the locating and needling of Tung's points. In this class, the focus will be entirely on the practice of locating and needling points. Therefore students must have completed the Complete Course of Tung's Acupuncture prior to attending this course.
