About ‘Tung’ Acupuncture

It is said that the Tung’s family acupuncture dates back to the Han Dynasty (206 BCE – 20 CE).  The oral lineage was passed as a treasured family secret from Father to Son.  The last in the dynasty was Tung Ching Ch’ang who was born in 1916 in Shangdon Province.  Escaping from the impact of the cultural revolution he fled to Taiwan in 1949.  He broke the family tradition and began teaching the secret family points before dying in 1975. He was a Taoist acupuncturist, and treated hundreds and thousands of patients.  Most of the 740 acupuncture points are unique to the Tung Family acupuncture system.

This method has been developed independently to TCM and is based on holographic system and 5 element association.
