The Use of Master Tung Points in Balance Method Acupuncture

In the context of diagnosing pain in performance horses through Acupuncture Scanning or Acuscan, acupuncturists often pinpoint discomfort at specific acupuncture points, including ST-7, GB-20, BL-10, and the lumbo-sacro-iliac area. This myofascial pain, linked to asymmetries in the thoracic limbs, can hinder overall performance due to stiffness and pain. The webinar will introduce the Balance Method, incorporating points from Master Tung Ching-Chang, transposed to equine acupuncture. The veterinary Balance Method utilizes a holographic approach, demonstrating the correspondence of tissue similarities through the Mirror and Image holographic concepts. Attendees can expect a concise TCVM explanation, offering insights to improve treatment success and confirm diagnoses, making it a valuable resource for practitioners seeking to advance their understanding of acupuncture in equine health.
