Practical Atlas of Tung’s Acupuncture

The practical atlas of Tung`s Acupuncture of Henry Mccann and H.-G. Ross contains a complete overview of Master Tung`s Acupuncture – a system that has become increasingly popular during recent years due to its high efficacy and concise theoretical concepts. The book provides a complete and extensive atlas of Tung`s acupuncture compiled from a variety of Chinese and English language sources, supplemented by the clinical experience of the authors.
Introductory material elucidates the theoretical background and therapeutic strategies of Tung`s system. Key topics include the three main categories for point selection: Image Correspondence (Taiji), Channel Correspondence, and Tissue Correspondence. Also described are needling methods, point selection, and the concept of coupled needling (Dao Ma). Point locations and indications are described both in terms of Master Tung`s original zonal arrangement and with reference to the conventional primary channels with which they are functionally associated. Tung`s “reaction areas des  aribed and their channel correspondences are explained.
For this new sixth edition of the practical atlas, besides a thorough revision of the whole text, a number of points have been added which were not part of Tung´s original repertoire. Similarly, point functions developed by Taiwanese scholars are now listed for all points. The glossary, which correlates symptoms, syndromes, and diseases with the appropriate points or point combinations applicable in each case, has been totally re-organized and expanded. An additional feature of the current edition is a chapter on the basic theory and clinical applications of Tung´s palm diagnosis. Over 70 diagrams many of them new provide the reader with a reliable quick location guide. Extensive comments on almost each point or point group with cross references to various important classic and modern sources explain the interrelationship between point location, indications, and needling technique, as well as the relationships between Tung´s points and classical points. The 6th edition of the practical atlas has been horoughly revised and expanded. About 100 page with valuable content have been added.
