Please note that nowadays there are so many imitation courses conducted by a lot of self-appointed un-qualified Tung’s Acupuncture practitioners especially in Asia (P.R.C.), USA and EU. Please use your common sense also check where are these “teachers’ knowledge” coming from before booking into any Tung’s Acupuncture training courses.
