Dr. Tung's Acupuncture Continuing Education class

NYCTCM is proud to present the Continuing Education Course "Dr. Tung's Acupuncture" on April 3 & 4 2010. This course represents the culmination of Dr. Young Wei-Chieh's forty years of clinical expertise and his study with Master Tung.
Who is Master Tung
Master Tung Ching Chang has been referred to as The Greatest Acupuncture Master who ever lived. He was born in the Shangdong Province in Northern China. When China was occupied by communists, he moved to Taiwan with Chang Kai-shek's army and settled in Taipei. He was a traditional Chinese physician famous for the miraculous and spontaneous results he would obtain by using few needles. The acupuncture points and techniques he used are unique while in accord to orthodox acupuncture. In most cases, the patient notices instant relief upon insertion of the needle. From 1953-1975, there were over 40,000 patient visits in his clinic.
Master Tung's Points were a treasured family secret, handed down and refined over generations. Master Tung was benevolent that he aimed at mass patients' benefits and decided to reveal his secret acupuncture system. He was the first one to break his family tradition and began to teach his acupuncture system to outsiders. He selected all his students, 73 of them, without any charge. He even offered boarding for those students if in need. Dr. Young, Wei-Chieh is one of the 73 students. Master Tung passed away in 1975. He left behind his point book and his legacy.
