I realize it’s almost Halloween and I haven’t updated the page from summer until now, but y’all….I live in Texas and our weather just now thinking about dropping into cooler temperatures. It took my recent visit to Rapid City, SD for me to re-realize that other parts of the world have already had cooler weather. Some of my peeps have even reported snow. And I almost don’t remember what that is!
So what’s up for Cat and Cat’sTCMNotes for the autumn? Here’s the short version.
I’ve been in practice since 2011. I am dedicated to keeping my skills current and to always learning new things. Lately I’ve been searching for ways to treat pain with fewer needles and better results. Why? Because most of the patients that initially seek out acupuncture come to people like me for pain relief and pain control. If I do my job as effectively as possible I make believers out of skeptics and help people out.
I am getting great results for pain patients (and for many other chronic ailments) by using Master Tung techniques and protocols. As I learn I am creating a Master Tung reference here online, both for my use and for yours. I’ve included a Point Locator section for frequently used Tung points as well as sections on Treatment Protocols, and Master Tung Theory. Points from Dr. Young’s and Dr. Maher’s books are included.
Use the search button at the top right of any CatsTCMNotes page (look for the magnifying glass that looks like the one to the left) to search by point name or by point number. You can also visit the pages from the menu to find points you’re looking for or to just learn more about Tung style acupuncture.
The point location reference includes location and best methods to locate, point indications, best clinical use for the points, suggested point combinations, and pictures to help you use them in your clinic setting.
