Tung Reaction Areas
I wanted to offer a free section on the Nerve/ Reaction Areas.
This is what separates Master Tung Acupuncture from so many other ideas. This is why you cannot just do "mirror image" ,"joint" "this tissue or that tissue". There is/are a reason for the point selection based in anatomy and pathology. These ideas mean, not only do these points help the "Liver" from a Chinese Medicine point of view BUT ALSO a Western Bio Physical model.
Understanding the idea of the "Reaction Area" is the magic sauce that has made the Master Tung acupuncture system famous.
It's quite remarkable, I hope you all enjoy it.
