Somatic Therapy for Acupuncturists

In this course, you will learn how to use the four methods of touch, movement, breath, and sensory-orientated processes to release emotions held in the body.

Somatic Therapy for Acupuncturists

Somatic therapies use mind-body practices to alleviate stress, trauma, anxiety, depression, PTSD, and other emotional and psychological conditions. Body awareness practices involving sensations, feelings, touch, movement, breathing techniques, mindfulness, and imagery may be used in somatic-based methods.

Recognizing the inherent connection between the mind and body is a necessary part of the healing process for many mental and emotional disorders. While various talking therapies can assist in the cognitive, behavioral, and mental aspects of treatment, these methods may not be enough to alleviate accompanying physical symptoms associated with the emotions.

Somatic therapies give equal weight to the mind and body in the treatment process.

Emotions consist of two fundamental components:

1. The thoughts, stories, and inner dialogue connected to the emotions.

2. The feelings and sensations in the body associated with the emotions.

In somatic therapies, it is common to address both the mind and body to assist in emotional release and healing.

Jim Spears

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
