Master Tung's Acupuncture Points & connective Tissues

Master Tung's acupuncture points are some of the most effective points in the Asian medicine traditions.  

What makes these points so unique is that they have special locations, are used as a dao ma (synergistic points close together), and they strongly influence the fascia and connective tissues.  

Take the points 77.01 - 77.04 located directly on the achilles tendon. These points treat neck, back, and spinal pain, as well as occipital headaches, and complex brain disorders.   

77.01 - 77.04

Understanding Fascial Connections in Master Tung's Acupuncture Methods

The image shows the fascial plane of the superficial back line (SBL), which corresponds closely to the UB meridian.  

This image is based on extensive research into fascia, as presented by Tom Myers in his book Anatomy Trains.  His research is based in Western science, anatomy, and dissection of cadavers.  

Through understanding current findings on the fascia and their lines of connection, we can gain a deeper insight into the functions and indications of Master Tung's points.

This image reveals a direct Western anatomical basis for comprehending how Master Tung's achilles points, can treat conditions of the cervical vertebrae, spine, occiput, and brain.  
This is the fastest way to learn Master Tung's points, while increasing your knowledge of anatomy.
Four Horses (88.17,88.18,88.19)

This image shows the Four Horses (white dots), which are commonly used for all kinds of respiratory disorders.  

From a fascial plane perspective we can understand how these points can benefit the respiratory system.  

 

The quadriceps, rectus abdominis, chest, and sternochondral fascia, are all part of the Superficial Front Line (SFL). This fascial plane helps to explain why the Four Horses treat respiratory disorders, breast pain, costal pain, and more.    

Here are some challenges faced when learning
Master Tung's points
  • New locations
  • Diverse indications
  • Selecting the right points
  • Needle techniques
  • Point combinations
  • Integrating it with other systems  
Integrating Fascial Plane Anatomy with Master Tung's Points, and Dr. Tan's Six Systems, Will Give You a Whole New Command of Point Functions and Clinical Results. 

The fascial planes hold many keys to understanding the actions, indications, and locations of Master Tung's powerful acupuncture points.  

Forget memorizing countless indications. Learn the anatomical and fascial basis for how these points work.

 

Understand how to select the right points when there are numerous to choose from. 

For instance, 22.05 & 22.04 (Ling Gu and Da Bai), as well as 22.08 & 22.09 (SI meridian) are both indicated for low back pain and kidney deficiency patterns, as are many other points.

Do you know when to use one group over the other?

With over 20 Tung points on the hands and arm for treating back pain and sciatica, how do you choose the points that will get the best results?

What do you do if Ling Gu and Da Bai don't work?

Many of us are using the Balance Method and Dr. Tan's six systems to make these kinds of decisions, and they are incredibly useful.

However, what do you do if that doesn't work, or how do you narrow down the point selections to find those that will?

Besides the six systems explanation, do you know why there are so many points on the hands and arms for the back?

How do you choose the most effective points?

The small intestine meridian is related to the fascial plane of the Deep Back Arm Line (DBAL), which is shown in the image on the right.

The Tung points 22.08 and 22.09 are located on this fascial plane, and will affect the muscles shown in the image.  

The rhomboids and levator scapulae are part of this fascial line, and connect to the spine, UB meridian, and superficial back line.

 

Understanding this explains the tai yang pair of the SI and UB channels, and shows how 22.08 and 22.09 can treat back pain, lumbago, kidney headaches, and knee pain.

 

Though Ling Gu and Da Bai (22.05 & 22.04) have similar actions, they are on a different fascial plane, and work through different mechanisms to treat back pain.

 

While we can use the six systems to make distinctions between these groups of points, the fascial plane perspective gives us additional insights based in anatomy and connective tissue dynamics.    

The tai yang channels join where the rhomboids and levator scapulae attach to the spine.
