Volume 6 of the ‘Advanced Tung Style Acupuncture Series’ is concerned with the application of Master Tung’s Acupuncture in the treatment of internal medical disorders.
This massive, 2-volume set (Volume 6A & Volume 6B) contains over 980 pages of text and presents over 1,050 prescriptions culled from the Tung Acupuncture literature in the Chinese language from the translator's personal library – more than 15 different sources were referenced (several currently out of print). The author has compiled, collated, and translated all the internal medicine prescriptions proffered by the Chinese sources noted above and applied accompanying diagrams for each clinical entity to facilitate their application. Included are: author-specific point locations, needling instructions, contraindications, and when available, clinical comments, herbal suggestions, lifestyle modifications, etc. all derived from the Chinese source’s own personal clinical experiences with Master Tung’s Acupuncture.
Volume 6A of the set contains 5 chapters, 480+ pages of text, and addresses disorders of: the Cardiovascular System, the Respiratory System, the Liver, the Gallbladder, and the Blood. Volume 6B of the set also contains 5 chapters, with 480+ pages of text, and addresses disorders of: the Gastrointestinal Tract, the Spleen, the Pancreas, the Endocrine System, and Miscellaneous Internal Medicine Disorders not found in the aforementioned chapters.
This 2-volume set is entitled 'Advanced Tung Style Acupuncture' because it, like its predecessors, implies that the user already has a basic understanding and working knowledge of Master Tung's Acupuncture. May the data contained therein be of great benefit and service to you and your internal medical patients! 542 pages
