For years and years we have just theorized why Tung points or distal points have such strong effects.
Why this distal point vs that distal point? Why this channel relationship over that channel relationship?
New neuromuscular and tendinomuscular understandings now shed new light and insight onto our ancient distal points.
Motor points are points on the body where the motor nerves bundle together at a superficial point. I will show that over 90% of Tung points overlap Motor points.
- A new way to think about Motor points
- New way to think about Tung points
- How can we begin to harness the power of both Tung and Motor points
- The importance and thoughts about Dao Ma and needling zones
- How to use a distal point with a motor point understanding
"Brad is a great inspiration. His take on incorporating trigger points has been a game changer for me.
Before Brad’s courses I was negatively influenced by others in the Tung / Tan / Distal community that local points or any techniques that were not strictly distal techniques would cause harm to the patients. After taking Brad’s Trigger Point course I started doing local points and even doing electro-acupuncture and not only did the patients not get traumatized, but I got great results and the patients we’re very happy.
Thank you Brad"
