Lumbar pain (Master Tung)
Lisbon 14-16 of December, 2018
This workshop discusses the Channel Theory and is based on different resources and approaches that together give practitioners a broader and deeper understanding of channel theory.
The workshops are both clinical and practical and provide practitioners with a profound understanding of each system in order to achieve better results in clinical practice. The workshops emphasize Master Tung’s acupuncture system.
Each workshop is divided into two parts, a theoretical part, and a practical part. The practical part includes demonstrations of different techniques as well as accurate point location and needling of Master Tung’s extra points.
