In this part of the course you will learn the art of palm diagnosis, including how to interpret the markings and features of the palm. This is an important part of diagnosis that can sit alongside your traditional techniques such as pulse or tongue. Case Histories In this section, we will delve into a range of case histories and clinical applications of Master Tung acupuncture. Through detailed case studies, you will gain insights into the effective use of Master Tung acupuncture in addressing various health conditions. We will analyse treatment strategies, needling techniques, and patient outcomes, allowing you to develop a deeper understanding of its practical application. Vascular Autonomic Signal (VAS) in Master Tung’s Acupuncture Explore the fascinating concept of Vascular Autonomic Signal (VAS) within the context of Master Tung acupuncture. The vascular autonomic signal (VAS), also known as the Nogier reflex or reflex auriculo-cardiac (RAC), is a subtle change in the pulse that can be detected when pressure is applied to specific points on the ear and Acupuncture points. The VAS can be used to determine which points are active, it also could be used for diagnosis. It is thought to be a reflection of the body’s autonomic nervous system response to stimuli. This section will provide you with valuable knowledge on how to identify and utilise VAS in diagnosing and treating patients effectively. We will cover the theory, assessment methods, and practical applications of VAS in your acupuncture practice. Practical Work – Revisit Locations and Needling The practical aspect of this course is vital for honing your Master Tung acupuncture skills.
