Master Tung's Fascial Planes Internal Medicine Course

A Modern Look At An Ancient System

- Master Tung’s Internal Medicine and Fascia Course -
Level 304

This course builds on the material from the first class, where we explored the fascial planes in the context of Tung’s points. In the internal medicine and fascia course, we examine how the fascia that covers the organs (visceral fascia), relates to Dr. Tan’s six systems, and provides a basis for treating internal conditions.

In Chinese medicine we speak of the external - internal relationships of the meridians to the organs. Externally the meridians correspond to the fascial planes, and internally the organs are surrounded by two layers of visceral fascia. The outermost layer of visceral fascia connects to the muscles and fascial planes, and verifies many aspects of meridian theory and Tan’s six systems.

This course integrates visceral fasciae anatomy, with TCM theory, and Tan’s systems. It also discusses how to take a 3D fascial plane approach for treating the organs. This course draws on scores of medical acupuncture research to help demonstrate the profound functions of Tung’s points for internal medicine.

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
