Master Tung's acupuncture points are some of the most effective points in the Asian medicine traditions.
What makes these points so unique is that they have special locations, are used as a Dao Ma's (synergistic points close together), and they strongly influence the fascia and connective tissues.
The course Master Tung's Points and Fascial Planes will give you ever greater insights into the locations, actions, and indications of these vital points.
The Fascial Planes hold many keys to understanding the actions, indications, and locations of Master Tung's powerful acupuncture points.
Forget memorizing countless indications. Learn the anatomical and fascial basis for how Tung points work.
And understand how to select the right points when there are numerous to choose from.
Whether you're at a beginner, intermediate, or advanced level, this course will give you the tools and knowledge to improve your clinical results. The course includes:
- In depth coverage of over 50 points
- 100 pages of downloadable notes on the fascial planes
- 56 pages of downloadable transcripts
- 5 hours of audio recordings *(currently this is an audio-only course)*
- New understanding of the Tung System
- Immediate & lifetime access to files

"As an acupuncturist I feel fortunate to live at a time where Chinese medical knowledge is widely available but even so, the practical use of this knowledge is often obscure. For myself the Master Tung system is one of these puzzles. I was pleasantly surprised that Jim’s Master Tung Fascia Course wasn’t just another paint by numbers Tung style course, but presented progressive ideas of fascial planes, anatomy and channel theory that help explain Tung point indications. Through this Jim’s course has helped me get beyond memorizing points for symptoms to a deeper layer of clinical reasoning behind the Tung points. The format was better than expected with well-paced knowledgeable audio files (no rambling on) that referred appropriately to the relevant visually rich slides"

"This material has really improved my treatments. I have been getting faster, more consistent results because I have a much better framework of how and when to use particular Dao Mas and how to use them in combinations for even better results. I have listened to the recordings multiple times and feel like I get some new nugget each time. This material is so useful, particularly in a community acupuncture clinic where treatment strategies need to be easy to administer and precise. Thank you so much Jim! I just bought the next course for internal medicine as well!"

"After years of searching for a practical understanding of the mechanism behind the use of distal points, I stumbled upon the work of James Spears.
Inspired by the work of Thomas Myers and his book Anatomy Trains, Dr. Spears has married the functionality of the points of the Tung System and Balance Method with the physical form of the fascial planes.
With this clearly explained, the practitioner gains the ability to plan with greater precision in order to achieve the intended result.
Dr. Spears has provided a portal of understanding and clarity into patterns of injury and dysfunction and how our needles can best address them. This has given a literal new dimension to treatment planning and application that is very satisfying and produces more effective results.
Furthermore, Dr. Spears provides an easy-to-follow model for diagnosis and choosing the most effective points. With this information, I didnt walk away with the feeling that "something was missing." There is no mystery here.
I think this information is absolutely essential for practitioners who want to take their diagnostic skills and treatment results to the next level."

"I have been practicing Master Tung's points and Dr.Tan’s Local & Global balance method for the last 2 years. After I enrolled in Master Tung's Points and Fascial Planes course by James Spears, I was introduced to a completely new dimension of acupuncture, and news ways to look at my practice. This course has not only improved my understanding of anatomy, but considering fascial planes is giving me additional insights to connective tissue dynamics (which is also helpful for needling depths estimation). My clinical outcome has been quickly improving since taking this course and hopefully will improve even more with time.
An example of practicing with my new understanding using Fascial Planes. It is well known that while LU channel alone can clear the BL channel, however for Thoracic pain on UB around & behind Scapular area 22.08 & 22.09 worked excellently because of the relationship of the Deep Fascial Line which lies on SI channel."

James Spears is a passionate and dedicated acupuncturist. Jim as he likes to be called has been a practicing acupuncturist since 2001. During the past 19 years, Jim has had many accomplishments including author, international lecturer, and educational tour guide, that included taking acupuncture students to China. Jim has both studied and practiced in the U.S., China, Thailand, and Vietnam.
A long and enthusiastic student of both Dr. Tan’s Balance Method and Master Tung's system. Jim’s unwavering commitment to the Tung System had him eventually asking himself the deeper questions of why the Tung system is so effective.
It is no surprise that Jim’s dual interest in physiology and movement therapies, including Qi Gong and yoga, eventually led him to start investigating the Tung system with fresh new ideas about what makes Tung points so powerful.
Since his initial inquiries and investigations, Jim has developed a strong congruent theory of the Master Tung system. And now, Jim is generously sharing his ongoing ideas and research of how the body’s network of connective tissue and fascia, plus the structural tensegrity of the system are the keys to illuminating the power of the Tung Points
