It would be better to be a good therapist than just be sometimes One of the competences that brings us closer to the status of a good therapist is acupuncture 

History of Master Tung

The first mentions of acupuncture date back, depending on the source, from 2 to 4 thousand years BC. In this article, I will try to present one of the acupuncture systems, namely the Master Tung method in the treatment of various diseases, including pain syndromes. 

Master Tung Master Tung is considered one of the most important acupuncturists in modern history. 39 years after his death, his method gained popularity all over the world. It became famous for using just a few needles with miraculous healing results. As he himself claimed - his family system developed independently of traditional Chinese medicine and the use of points is far different from those used in TCM on the main 14 channels. Not wanting all the secret knowledge and family tradition to be lost along with the last textbooks destroyed during the war, he decided to reveal the secret and in 1962 he began to accept students, thanks to which the knowledge has survived to this day.

Many acupuncturists and dry needling therapists are used to using a large number of needles during one treatment. This is one approach, but Master Tung proposed another. Thanks to Master Tung's magic points, the patient feels a significant improvement after just one or two treatments using the minimum effective number of needles. Therefore, the practitioner of this unusual method chooses only a few strong, precisely selected points, usually away from the ailment the patient is struggling with. The needles are usually inserted quite superficially, "pumping" is not recommended and the effect of the so-called "pumping" is not expected. "twitch", which makes the method attractive to patients because the procedure is almost painless. 

I think we can all agree that pain is one of the most common problems we encounter in offices. And it's back pain, neck pain, shoulder pain, knee pain, headache pain, elbow pain, finger pain, sciatica pain, abdominal pain, or "no one could fix it" pain. 

Of course, as many patients, as many types of pain, but at the end of the day, the 80-20 rule will work here (80% of our office time we will treat 20% of all cases. We should also remember that pain is only some information and a signpost for us - therapists. stagnation of Qi or Blood, heat, swelling, vasoconstriction or degeneration, but the essence for us is the cause, so if the patient does not respond to the therapy, we have two probable possibilities: 

1. We misdiagnosed the patient


2. We used the wrong points.

3. An additional option is when the patient is really seriously ill (undiagnosed cancer, etc.), so let's always be vigilant and humble. Despite the extraordinary successes in therapy and the really huge potential hidden in Master Tung system let us remember the limits of our possibilities. The moment we think we can do anything is the same moment we should immediately take a few steps back in our thinking.

Pain in the patient

Pain management is so important because 95% of patients come just to get rid of it. When the patient feels comfortable with us and trusts our tools based on the effects we achieve, we can further educate such a patient and deal with his other health problems, which (by the way) very often disappear during therapy because we do not treat the symptoms but the cause. This is where the patient's problem lies.

Master Tung acupuncture copes well with pain, but it also brings amazing benefits in the treatment of internal problems. So if you are successful at treating pain, you will be successful at treating issues such as heavy or painful menstruation, chronic sinusitis, fevers and colds, anxiety, insomnia, migraines, digestive problems, and a whole host of other problems. 

During master Tung course we discuss detailed point locations, numerous descriptions including reaction areas, lists of indications, notes on accurate puncture, contraindications, point combinations and comments. Each acupuncture point in Master Tung's system is presented in depth, with exact anatomical location, operating theory, indications, combination and case stages. In addition, we present complementary working methods that are crucial for the effectiveness of the office and described in detail in the course program.

Master Tung system it is a form of a new look and a new understanding of how we can work with the patient. Our mission and training dream - as a whole FRSc Team – is that you jsut BE and not somtimes be good therapists.
