Lectures on Tung’s Acupuncture

This book by Wei Chieh Young focuses on the therapeutic system of Tung’s Acupuncture.
Disorders covered in this book are written with point selections and the analysis of their reasons and theoretical principles.
The point selections according to the 14 meridians and the reasons explained in accordance with the classic acupuncture and Dr. Young’s personal experience are accompanied too. There is also the comparison of the therapeutic effect between the applications of the 14-meridians and Tung’s acupuncture.

All subjects are covered in depth and practical in clinic:

They help the readers to choose either the 14-meridians or the Tung’s acup or the combination of both to treat diseases.
This is not only a book on Tugn’s therapeutic system, but also a practical book on therapeutics in the 14 meridians.
Important theoretical principles such as Zang Fu Bei Tung (The extraordinary connections of the zangfu), Ti Ying Zhen Fa (Application of Holographic Acupuncture Technique for Different Parts of the Body), Taiji Holography and Correspondence, and the Method of Selecting Five Shu Points of the Same Five-element Category have their own chapters to elaborate their theoretical principles and applications in details. Those chapters will help the readers comprehend the advanced theories of Tung’s extraordinary points and ingeniously incorporate Tung’s acupuncture into their clinical practice.
All three books of Wei Chieh Young, the Therapeutic System, Points Study and Illustrated Acupuncture points (photos of the Tung points) are a perfect basis for learning the Tung Acupuncture style.

There is also a Spanish translation of this title available.
