How to use mirroring and Imaging techniques to choose the most effective points

The over 2,500 years old Master Tung method derives from the I Ching (one of the oldest books in the world).
The Master Tung method is also known as I Ching Acupuncture, Balance Method, or Distal Point Acupuncture. The book subtitle Distal Imaging for Fast Pain Relief is based ont the training of Dr. Wei Chieh Young an Dr. Richard Tan, showing the concepts of images, mirrors and relationships. The authors point out the reason for the human body to be treated in so many places, as well as why distal acupuncture works. The entire human body is represented on the sole of foot, the hand, the ear, the head, any bone, any finger and any toe. Mirrors and images can be found everywhere. There are endless body representations. The authors explain concepts and theories (including the Transport Points) due to their clinical experience. This helps the practioners to understand the function of the Tung points. To simplify the clincal process, there are also shown point images for each section.
As the authors note, “”The mapping, image and mirror is based on the anatomy and the brain. It?s not a theoretical concept, it is a reliable, predictable and consistent concept. To get this fact makes it clearer and more real for us and our patients. We are aware that this takes the magic out, but due to it, it is simpler to explain that this is not a magic thing but a brain thing.
Definitely, this book helps practioners to add Tung points and treatments to their current TCM treatments.
