MEDICAL ARTERIAL PULSE SYSTEM
MAPS is a pulse system based on feeling the pulse in 3 locations. The neck (carotid artery), wrist (radial artery), and on foot (dorsalis pedis artery). These 3 pulses taking together will give a picture of health or disease with in each person. Taking these pulses in all 3 areas is what constitutes the MAPS system.
SPREADING THE IMAGE
“STI” is a concept of using multiple images, mirrors, and relationships that extend past and are larger then the area of pain that is reported by the patient. This idea is treating a larger area of pain, discomfort, dysfunction, irritation, disease or any other medical complaint that is reported by the patient. This idea treats above, below, to the left and to the right of the complaint by the patient and the area that realized by the practitioner. Example, a patient has left knee pain at the patella joint. “Spreading the image” would consist treating of NOT ONLY treating the EXACT spot pain with the appropriate image (say the right elbow just as an example) but also treating that left knee pain with right elbow with a treatment area that is proximal, distal, anterior, and posterior to the exact spot of pain. The treatment area would be in total a larger area of treatment (image) than the area of pain. This concept can be applied to any dysfunction, in that you are using a larger treatment area than the area of pain described by the patient.
MEDICAL ARTERIAL PULSE SEMINARS (tm)
MAPS is a pulse seminar (tm) system based on feeling the pulse in 3 locations. The neck (carotid artery), wrist (radial artery), and on foot (dorsalis pedis artery). These 3 pulses taking together will give a picture of health or disease with in each person. Taking these pulses in all 3 areas is what constitutes the MAP seminar(tm) courses that we teach.
Since 2007 JNA Joint Needling Acupuncture ™ seminars is an education seminar of acupuncture that is a fusion of Dr. Tan and Master Tung acupuncture. In JNA ™ seminars , or Joint Needling acupuncture ™ seminars we will teach you how to needle into the joints, joint spaces and areas around the joints for a therapeutic effect. These affects are greater at joints than other areas. We teach you to use the wrist joints, elbow joints, shoulder joints, Proximal interphalangeal joints (PIP) , knee joints, ankles joints, and metatarsophalangeal joint (MCP). These locations, needle depth, needle angle, insertion of needle and tissue correspondences are not taught in TCM (Tradition Chinese Medicine) schools in America will all be taught at the seminars. The use of JNA™ and or Joint needling Acupuncture ™ is a concept fused from the Master Tung and Dr. Tan system to create a new synthesis of needling, called JNA and or Joint Needling Acupuncture ™ and or Joint Needling Acupuncture. ™ In JNA™ and or Joint needling Acupuncture ™ I will teach in the class how to use the 12 joints in the body including but not limited to the shoulder joints (bilateral), elbow joints (bilateral), wrist joints (bilateral) Hip joints (bilateral), knee joints (bilateral) and ankle joints (bilateral). In JNA™ and or Joint needling Acupuncture ™ I teach and use in the seminar any or all of the joints, and we may use either side of the body to effect a cure, or needle either side depending on the particular condition.
