(Theories, Points, Manipulations, and Therapeutics)
The Complete Courses of Tung’s Acupuncture offered in the U.S. is hosted by the World Association of Tung’s Acupunctureand will be taught by Dr. Wei-Chieh Young. Dr. Young will combine years of experience from Master Tung and himself with a lot of case studies supplemented by Chinese medicine theories in explaining Tung’s Acupuncture. The goals of this course are to enable the attendants to locate the Tung's points correctly and learn the theories, applications, and general therapeutics in a short time (See Past Seminars).
Dr. Wei-Chieh Young is one of few direct disciples of Master Tung that has been practicing Chinese medicine for nearly forty years without cessation, and is an expert in Nei Jing, Yi Jing and Shang Han Lun. He is a renowned author with many popular books in the fields of Chinese medicine, acupuncture, Nei Jing, and Yi Jing. He is the first Chinese medical doctor to introduce Tung’s Acupuncture to the world and have nearly forty years of teaching experience in Tung’s Acupuncture and the 14 channels.
Why Take This Course?
Real knowledge sometime can’t be received from books; it is through direct transmission that knowledge and techniques can be received. This requires being with the teacher and experiencing that person through observation and guided practice. Thus the subtle qualities of the senior practitioner can be received.
Why are the Complete Courses the pre-requisite to the Advanced Courses?
According to years of experience in instructing the Complete Courses and attendants' feedbacks, many students felt the fundamental courses was in depth and profound, not to mention the advanced courses. That is why we require completion of the fundamental class (the Complete Courses) before taking the advanced course; otherwise the participants might have difficulty following the class and therefore waste their precious time and money. This is particularly true for those traveling all the way from foreign countries (e.g. Asia, Europe); and we cannot bear for this situation to happen. In fact, the Complete Courses are sufficient and useful in clinical practice. Therefore we suggest one take the Complete Courses (fundamentals) first and if time allows in the future, join us for the advanced course.
