Although Master Tung’s Acupuncture has been in the public domain since his untimely passing in 1975, very little information is available publicly on how to use the system in a practical and systematic way in English. In this book, I hope to guide my fellow colleagues into the intricacies of applying Master Tung Acupuncture in the clinic. Since I am also a practicing acupuncturist and deal with pain, women’s health, and internal medicine problems quite frequently, I am sharing my clinical experience in this book and the “secret” of creating the protocols that I use daily, with modification. I also attempt to explain why I choose a particular protocol and the modification to it. In this book, I introduce what I consider the “Best” of Master Tung’s Acupuncture. There are many books on Master Tung’s Acupuncture which introduce all of the 740 Tung family points. but often these books may be too much for the beginner and do not let the beginner grasp useful concepts or how to use Master Tung’s Acupuncture immediately and effectively. Most acupuncturists simply add the Tung points to their already memorized TCM Acupuncture point prescriptions, and as a result, make a mess out of their acupuncture. They do not have a simple and elegant rationale for using the system. In my teaching of Master Tung’s Acupuncture, I always choose points that are painless, easily accessible, and have powerful immediate results.
