1. General Introduction

Welcome to our journey through Master Tung’s Acupuncture (MTA), a distinctive approach to acupuncture that diverges from traditional methods. In this system, we categorize acupoints not by the conventional 14 channels, but through a unique focus on Zang-fu organs. This shift in perspective offers a deeper understanding of the body's systems, as exemplified by acupoints like Ling Gu and Da Bai, which are integral to the lung system.

Central to our study is the theory of the five elements and Zang-fu organs, a cornerstone of MTA that offers a more nuanced understanding than the traditional 14 channels theory. This course, which I've meticulously designed based on extensive research and clinical experience, delves into the majority of MTA points, offering a comprehensive exploration of this innovative system.

This module is crafted for both the novice and the seasoned practitioner, aiming to broaden your knowledge and sharpen your skills in treating the Metal-Lung system disorders using MTA methodologies.

1. General Introduction

TCM offers a unique perspective on health and disease, emphasizing the interconnectedness of the body's systems. In TCM, the concept of "Wu Guan" or "The Five Orifices," which includes the eyes, nose, throat, ears, and mouth, illustrates this interconnectedness. These orifices are not only gateways to the external environment but are also intimately linked to the body’s internal organs, specifically the five Zang organs. This relationship is crucial in understanding the etiology, physiology, and pathology of disorders affecting these orifices.

  • Eyes and Liver: In TCM, the eyes are closely related to the Liver. Issues such as blurred vision or dry eyes are often attributed to a Liver imbalance, such as Liver Blood deficiency or Liver Yin deficiency. Conversely, eye conditions can signal deeper issues with the Liver.

  • Nose and Lung: The nose is considered to be connected to the Lung. Common nasal issues like rhinitis or sinusitis may be seen as manifestations of Lung problems, like a Lung Qi deficiency. Protecting the Lung Qi is thus essential for nasal health.

  • Throat (Tongue) and Heart: The throat is associated with the Heart. TCM posits that emotional disturbances or heat in the Heart can manifest as throat discomfort or speech problems. Hence, balancing Heart Qi is important for throat health.

  • Ears and Kidneys: The ears are linked to the Kidney. Conditions like tinnitus or hearing loss in elderly individuals are often seen as symptoms of Kidney Yin deficiency or Liver Wind, as per TCM theory.

  • Mouth (including Tongue and Teeth) and Spleen/Stomach: The mouth, especially the tongue, is connected to the Spleen and Stomach. Problems like taste disorders or gum issues might indicate imbalances in these organs. The tongue diagnosis is also an essential tool to diagnose digestional diseases. 

The concept of external pathogens in TCM, such as wind, heat, and cold, invading the body through these orifices is also significant. These orifices, being on the head, are particularly vulnerable to external influences. Acupuncture, in this context, is viewed as a primary method to expel these pathogens and restore balance to the affected organs and meridians.

In MTA, a specific focus is placed on the meridian points that directly relate to the Five Orifices (Wu Guan) - the eyes, nose, throat, ears, and mouth. This approach is informed by a deep understanding of the internal five Zang organs (Heart, Liver, Spleen, Lung, and Kidney) in TCM. By targeting these specific points, MTA aims to treat disorders of the Five Orifices more efficiently.

This course is meticulously designed to provide a comprehensive and profound understanding of this essential system. It caters to both seasoned practitioners and newcomers to the field of acupuncture, equipping you with the knowledge and skills to more effectively address kidney system disorders using MTA's unique approaches.

1. General Introduction

Welcome to our focused exploration of the Water-Kidney system within the realm of MTA. This course addresses a common challenge in acupuncture: effectively treating kidney system disorders. Typically, patients with these disorders present with complex, multiple deficiencies, making traditional acupuncture treatments alone less effective. However, when complemented with moxibustion, the efficacy can be significantly improved. The problem is the clinical use of moxibustion is quite limited in our daily practice. In MTA, we have access to unique and powerful points, such as Xia San Huang - Lower Three Emperors, specifically tailored for addressing kidney deficiencies. Our journey in this course will lead you through a detailed examination of the Water-Kidney system's physiology and pathology. Understanding these aspects is crucial for effective treatment and is a central focus of our MTA studies.

This course is designed meticulously to ensure a comprehensive and deep understanding of this vital system. Whether you are a seasoned practitioner or new to the field of acupuncture, this course will equip you with the knowledge and skills to address kidney system disorders more effectively using the unique approaches of MTA.

This module is crafted for both the novice and the seasoned practitioner, aiming to broaden your knowledge and sharpen your skills in treating the Metal-Lung system using MTA methodologies.

1. General Introduction

Welcome to our in-depth exploration of the Wood-Liver system within the realm of MTA. The Wood-Liver system plays a pivotal role in numerous disorders, such as pain, anxiety, depression, fatigue, indigestion, gynecological and andrological disorders, headache, tinnitus, and stroke sequelae, which we frequently encounter. Generally, acupuncture is effective in treating these conditions. In MTA, we also delve into philosophies and techniques to calm the liver wind, unblock liver qi stagnation and blood stasis, and nourish the liver blood and Yin. A distinctive and effective strategy in MTA involves using metal points to balance the wood, a method not found in traditional acupuncture. This course will guide you through a thorough examination of the wood-liver system's physiology, pathology, and its interconnections with other organs. Gaining an understanding of these aspects is vital for effective treatment and forms a central part of our MTA studies.

This course is meticulously designed to provide a comprehensive and profound understanding of this essential system. It caters to both seasoned practitioners and newcomers to the field of acupuncture, equipping you with the knowledge and skills to more effectively address kidney system disorders using MTA's unique approaches.

1. General Introduction

Welcome to our comprehensive exploration of the Fire-Heart system within the framework of MTA. The Fire-Heart system is central to understanding circulation and the blood system. Acupuncture has shown effectiveness in addressing various heart conditions. For example, acupuncture applied to the PC6 point is noted for its efficacy in treating arrhythmias and chronic angina pectoris. Additionally, acupuncture plays a significant role in enhancing blood circulation. Within the MTA context, we explore philosophies and techniques related to the functions of blood vessels, circulation, and heat management. A notable and effective MTA strategy involves utilising Wood-Liver and Minister Fire points to aid blood circulation, alongside Earth-Spleen points to fortify the blood. This course offers an in-depth analysis of the Fire-Heart system’s physiology and pathology, including its interactions with other organs. Understanding these elements is crucial for effective treatment and is a key focus in our MTA curriculum.

Within the MTA framework, we delve into the profound philosophies and techniques associated with the functions of Taiyin and Yangming, the primary Earth-element channels. Our approach focuses on harmonizing these channels, reducing the restraining influence of the Wood-Liver, and promoting the optimal functioning of the gallbladder and stomach. This holistic approach aims to eliminate dampness, damp-heat, and phlegm from all Fu-organs, effectively restoring balance to the Earth-Spleen system.

1. General Introduction

In Master Tung's Acupuncture (MTA), we uncover powerful points closely related to the uterus and ovary, offering a unique approach to treating various gynecological disorders. Key points like Fu Ke (Gynecology) and Huan Chao (Ovary) are instrumental in this process. Master Tung himself, a renowned figure in this field, documented thousands of successful cases in gynecological treatments.

The efficacy of MTA in gynecology isn't just anecdotal; it's supported by contemporary research. For instance, Cao et al. (2019) highlight MTA's potential in aiding long-term weight control and improving menstrual frequency in patients with Polycystic Ovary Syndrome (PCOS). Additionally, Szafranska et al. (2021) presented a compelling case for treating amenorrhea effectively with acupuncture.

In my clinical experience, I frequently employ MTA to address a range of gynecological issues such as menopause, PCOS, infertility, postpartum disorders, and more. This course is designed to delve into the intricacies of MTA, equipping you with the knowledge and skills to apply these techniques in your practice, thereby enhancing patient care in the field of gynecology.

1. General Introduction

The concept of "Shen," often translated as "spirit" and "vitality," is a fundamental and unique element in Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM). In TCM, Shen is considered the essence that governs the mental and neurological functions of the body, intricately linked to both the brain and heart. As such, Shen is central to all movements and functions of the body, making it the 'top commander' in terms of health and wellbeing.

In MTA, special emphasis is placed on treating Shen disorders. These disorders encompass a wide range of conditions such as stress, anxiety, insomnia, pain, poor memory, and confusion. Addressing these issues is not just a treatment of symptoms; it is an essential part of restoring and maintaining overall health and balance in the body. MTA utilizes a combination of both local points on the head and distal points on the arms and legs to treat Shen disorders. The local points on the head are directly involved in influencing brain functions and therefore have a more immediate impact on Shen.

By utilizing these points, MTA practitioners aim to harmonize and nourish the Shen, thereby improving mental and neurological functions. This approach is grounded in the understanding that mental health is inseparable from physical health and that treating Shen is crucial for achieving overall well-being.

For students and practitioners of acupuncture, mastering the treatment of Shen disorders is a fundamental skill. It requires not only a thorough understanding of the theoretical aspects of TCM but also a refined, practical ability to diagnose and apply the appropriate acupuncture techniques. This comprehensive approach highlights the holistic and interconnected nature of health in TCM, where the mind and body are treated as a unified whole. 

This course is meticulously designed to provide a comprehensive and profound understanding of this essential system. It caters to both seasoned practitioners and newcomers to the field of acupuncture, equipping you with the knowledge and skills to more effectively address kidney system disorders using MTA's unique approaches.

In the realm of traditional Chinese medicine, Master Tung's Acupuncture (MTA) stands out as a remarkably effective approach, particularly in the treatment of pain related to the spine and extremities. MTA introduces us to pivotal points, with Linggu and Dabai being recognized as the most potent for alleviating pain. The increasing popularity of MTA in recent years can be attributed to its impressive efficacy in managing various pain conditions.

My clinical journey with MTA has been enlightening, especially in the context of treating chronic pain syndromes characterized by a mix of excess and deficiency patterns. Conditions such as osteoarthritis, whiplash, and frozen shoulder have shown significant improvement under MTA treatment. This form of acupuncture offers a nuanced approach that targets the underlying imbalances, providing symptomatic relief and working towards a more holistic healing.

As we embark on this course, we will delve deeper into the principles of Master Tung's Acupuncture, exploring its methodologies and the profound impact it can have on pain management.
