    This book is only possible because of all the people who helped me and spent time

    with me.

    I am grateful to Dr. Tan. I took many of his classes, and followed him in his

    clinic. He has been very generous with his time. Without him, distal acupuncture

    would not be as well known. Because of his tireless efforts over thirty years, we are

    able to learn this type of acupuncture, for which we are all thankful.

    Dr. Wei Chieh Young has been so generous in his teachings. I can honestly say

    that although I have put this book together, without both of these two masters, I

    would not have been able to write this book.

    It is because of these two individuals that so many of us have success in our clinics

    and are able to help others. I am grateful that I was lucky enough to spend time

    with these doctors.

    Thank you.

    If you are familiar with using distal acupuncture to achieve instant pain relief, you

    might have wanted to read case studies and delve further into the theory to be

    better able to apply the theories in a consistently effective way. If you are not

    familiar with distal acupuncture methods, you might not have seen how instant

    pain relief can be achieved with a few needles.

    The benefits of distal acupuncture and this book include:

    Make distal methods simple, you can learn the methods used for an easy

    way to treat with distal methods and master the technique

    This book combines Master Tung acupuncture and Balance Method

    acupuncture, which has been used for thousands of years and was first

    mentioned in the I Ching

    Learn which method is the best choice for each type of pain

    Acupuncture quickies for lower back pain demonstrate how one or two

    needles can instantly relieve pain

    Treat the root and the branch of back pain

    The instant results of distal methods will encourage your patients to

    continue with care

    In some cases, patients are in too much pain to get a local treatment

    Distal treatment is great for acute care treatment

    You can easily combine distal and local treatments to reap the benefit of

    both methods

    Learn the theories behind distal acupuncture

    Dozens of case studies using the Balance Method, which uses TCM points,

    and Tung acupuncture treatments that include Tung point images

    If you can master the treatment of back pain, you will have a busy practice. If you

    can master the distal treatment of back pain, you can demonstrate to people who

    do not believe they can be helped that you can help them.



    New Additions

    We have written three books on distal acupuncture. The first is Mastering Tung

    Acupuncture, Distal Imaging for Fast Pain Relief, and two Pain Case Studies

    books, that each include distal theory case studies similar to this book. However,

    after getting feedback from other acupuncturists, we have added the following to

    this book:

    There is a point name list at the back of the book where the Tung points are

    listed by number. They are now sorted by Pin Yin name as well.

    We added TCM point images, to refresh your memory on location, as well

    as to make this book a complete reference. Although this book is written for

    licensed acupuncturists, there might be points you dont typically use in

    clinic. The images will give you a quick refresher for what you learned in

    school. They were not meant to replace a point location book for TCM


    The images now include the point name in English, and Pin Yin, unless it is

    a Dao Ma, and space does not permit. A Dao Ma is two or more points used

    in combination, on the same meridian, to increase the reaction.

    All Tung points are listed with the locations and images at the back of the

    book. You no longer need a point location
