Course Overview

All of the points and point patterns discussed in this course are considered 'heavy-hitters' by Susan. We have been given many extraordinary points from Master Tung's work, all of which can yield immediate and lasting results, but some of them Susan finds herself using all day, every day. What makes a point or one pattern a 'heavy-hitter' is its clinical usefulness. Practitioners attending this recording will be able to return to their clinics with lots of new ideas for immediate implementation. This course will give any practitioner a very good overview of the entire Master Tung’s system, lots of new points to add to his/her repertoire, and is an excellent choice as well, for those who already have some familiarity with Tung's Points.


NOTE: This course mentions bleeding techniques and the treatment of cancer as part of the historical discussion of Tung’s acupuncture points. Bloodletting and Cancer treatment are not within the scope of practice for California Acupuncture Licensees. Furthermore, bloodletting and/or the treatment of cancer may or may not be included in your scope of practice in your particular jurisdiction. The mention of the historical use of these techniques does not certify the learner to use these points or condone the use of these techniques outside the scope of one’s practice in their jurisdiction.

Excellent overview of Master Tungs points. This class is just enough to expose you to his work and get you excited to learn more.

Jessica K. (United States)

Susan Johnson shares her 30 years of clinical experience using Tungs Acupuncture. While this information is becoming more widely available in book format, there is no replacing personal instruction. I found the videos of point location and needling procedures to be incredible helpful.

Stephen D. (United States)

This body of work has transformed my practice. For the first several years of my practice, I relied heavily on the teachings of Richard Tan. I took my first Susan Johnson seminar in 2013 and have never looked back. This is the 3rd time I have taken this particular seminar, and learn something new every time. Highly recommended for anyone who wants immediate results.

Eric M. (United States)

Susan Johnson is an inspiration teacher. I am so grateful for her life's work. She generously shares all the details of her extensive experience. She is the real deal doctor of Chinese Medicine. She teaches the points brilliantly and gives so many useful details and insightful stories from her own practice. She continues to study and deepen her knowledge. Every student of acupuncture I've been practicing for 23 years like myself can learn so much from Susan Johnson. Both her presentation of the theory and training on how to logically figure it out for oneself are invaluable. All the details for effective needling make this course a must. I wish I'd found this 20 years ago!
