- Winter 2019

Hey, everybody! I hope you had a great holiday season and are moving happily through the dark part of winter. Please feel free to come in and grab some notes as needed. Bear in mind that because there has been high traffic lately I am struggling to keep the site up and running by the end of the month because people download so much at a time.

I’m working to get my notes up and available on Amazon for a very small contribution. This is a long process, so I’ve been working on it for some time. I hope to complete this project by the end of winter this year and give this website some much-needed breathing room and keep the notes flowing for students of TCM!

In the meantime, protect your wind points, take your herbs, study your TCM, and play outside. Happy snowshoeing, playing on the beach, ice skating or whatever you are into… do you!


Cat’s TCM Notes
Master Tung Point Reference Section - Cat Calhoun, L.Ac. creator of Cat's TCM Notes, a learning resource for students, practitioners, and patients of Chinese medicine, acupuncture, herbal medicine.I’m Cat from Cat’s TCM Notes and I’m dedicated to keeping both myself and you educated about Chinese medicine, acupuncture, herbal medicine, energetic treatment theory, and treatment protocols.

I’ve been in practice since 2011. I am dedicated to keeping my skills current and 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. - San Cha points Master Tung's PointsI 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.

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.
