This past Friday the AOMSA student club had its second session of the Point Location & Needling Technique Series. This series is featuring our professor mentor Dr. Kwon, and the second topic was Master Tung’s points.
The AOMSA club was lucky, because prior to Covid, Dr. Kwon led several CEU (continuing education units) courses on the topic of Master Tung. The session began with the origin of the differing theory, then he discussed the uniqueness of the Master Tung system, followed by differing techniques. The session then focused on a few important points, followed by a needling demonstration. All in all, I think it was a successful event, I saw some new faces, which is great and what we are aiming for.

There’s an interesting article in the Acupuncture Today publication that discusses this channel system:
“Although Tung’s acupuncture is famous for its unique set of acupuncture points, the unique points are just part of a much bigger picture. Tung’s acupuncture is a complete system that includes its own channels, unique points, diagnostic methods, and needling techniques. Furthermore, Tung’s acupuncture is based on a five zang (six fu) channel system that is unique to the Tung system, and different from the traditional 14 channels of acupuncture.2”
It’s Week 9 here, which means that it is time to finish exam preparation for the second round of exams. Good luck to all the students this week!
