Additional Details on the Signature Courses

The 201 / 202 class go into extensive details about the myofasical lines, traditional acupuncture points, and Master Tung's points. Over 50 of the most commonly used points are discussed in traditional terms, as well as how this relates to myofascial anatomy. This is the starter course that will powerfully benefit the way you practice acupuncture. Even advanced doctors and acupuncturists can learn from this class.

The 212 course details the neck, shoulders, and upper back. Structural issues and alignment are also discussed along with the most powerful points on each myofascial line for treating the neck, upper back, and shoulders. Master Tung's points and standard TCM points are reviewed in regards to functional anatomy. 

The 214 class is about the hips and low back, with most emphasis being placed on the hip joint. TCM points and Tung's points are discussed in terms of the myofascial lines and functional anatomy. Structural issues are examined along with functional muscle groups like the hip flexors, extensors, rotators, abductors, and adductors. 


The 304 class is on internal medicine and discusses how the visceral fascia relate to TCM, Balance Method, and Tung's points. 


The free 5 hour course on the shoulder joint examines traditional points and Tung's points for treating the shoulder. Myofascial anatomy is explored in the context of how acupuncture points work, and how various muscle attachments play a role in the effects of distal needling.



"I loved the content of your classes. I feel that I have had a lot of good results using your protocol in general. It was very helpful to think about things in layers to pinpoint how to choose the points with my chronic pain patients. I love the exercises for the hips."


- Lily Coogan

"I would highly recommend this course (214) and all the fascia/Tung courses .While in acupuncture school, I became aware of Tom Myers work (on my own, as they did not covert this material) but did not know how to begin to integrate it into my acu treatments. I love this way of thinking. The material is presented in a logical and accessible manner. Very satisfied with what I learned in this course and happy to bring it to my patients"

- Stephen Longo L.Ac. 


"These courses provide unique, valuable, and immediately useful understandings of acupuncture points and meridians through the perspective of fascial planes and anatomy. His presentations are clear and thorough, and his emails are generous with instructive information.  Highly recommend!"


- Shelley Baldridge

"Great courses, this will greatly enhance my effectiveness in treatments. As a PT, I have been working with manual myofascial release for many years and additional TCM acupuncture has been beneficial for me. I know your courses will deliver even better results."

- Paul d B. 

"As an acupuncturist I feel fortunate to live at a time where Chinese medical knowledge is widely available but even so, the practical use of this knowledge is often obscure. For myself the Master Tung system is one of these puzzles. I was pleasantly surprised that Jim’s Master Tung Fascia Course wasn’t just another paint by numbers Tung style course, but presented progressive ideas of fascial planes, anatomy and channel theory that help explain Tung point indications. Through this Jim’s course has helped me get beyond memorizing points for symptoms to a deeper layer of clinical reasoning behind the Tung points. The format was better than expected with well-paced knowledgeable audio files (no rambling on) that referred appropriately to the relevant visually rich slides"


- Paul Burns, Registered Acupuncturist and Chinese Medicine Practitioner, AUSTRALIA


This material has really improved my treatments. I have been getting faster, more consistent results because I have a much better framework of how and when to use particular Dao Mas and how to use them in combinations for even better results. I have listened to the recordings multiple times and feel like I get some new nugget each time. This material is so useful, particularly in a community acupuncture clinic where treatment strategies need to be easy to administer and precise. Thank you so much Jim! I just bought the next course for internal medicine as well!

- Sarah Street, Sol Centered Community Acupuncture, Colorado



"I have been practicing Master Tung's points and Dr.Tan’s Local & Global balance method for the last 2 years. After I enrolled in Master Tung's Points and Fascial Planes course by James Spears, I was introduced to a completely new dimension of acupuncture, and news ways to look at my practice. This course has not only improved my understanding of anatomy, but considering fascial planes is giving me additional insights to connective tissue dynamics (which is also helpful for needling depths estimation). My clinical outcome has been quickly improving since taking this course and hopefully will improve even more with time.


An example of practicing with my new understanding using Fascial Planes. It is well known that while LU channel alone can clear the BL channel, however for Thoracic pain on UB around & behind Scapular area 22.08 & 22.09 worked excellently because of the relationship of the Deep Fascial Line which lies on SI channel."

- Ismail Ratlamwala, Mumbai, India



"After years of searching for a practical understanding  of the mechanism behind the use of distal points, I stumbled upon the work of James Spears. 


Inspired by the work of Thomas Myers and his book Anatomy Trains, Dr. Spears has married the functionality of the points of the Tung System and Balance Method with the physical form of the fascial planes. 


With this clearly explained, the practitioner gains the ability to plan with greater precision in order to achieve the intended result. 


Dr. Spears has provided a portal of understanding and clarity into patterns of injury and dysfunction and how our needles can best address them. This has given a literal new dimension to treatment planning and application that is very satisfying and produces more effective results. 


Furthermore, Dr. Spears provides an easy-to-follow model for diagnosis and choosing the most effective points. With this information, I didnt walk away with the feeling that "something was missing." There is no mystery here. 


I think this information is absolutely essential for practitioners who want to take their diagnostic skills and treatment results to the next level." 


- Beth Jones Lic. Ac.
