Reasons for the Outstanding Outcomes
What Makes the Difference? -- Three Aspects of Experience
Heritage of Experience
For most of the time in history until modern science emerged, treatment was based on experience. Oriental medicine is a body of experience built up over thousands of years. That's why Oriental medicine is also called "experience-based medicine." Modern medicine always tries to find something new. On the other hand, Oriental medicine tries to tap into experience documented over thousands of years. Those documents are in Chinese and very difficult to understand. The ability to read them and gain insights from predecessors is the key to higher levels of treatment effects.
Experience with Great Masters
"A picture is worth a thousand words." This saying is especially true for learning acupuncture medicine. Just seeing Great Masters' treatment or listening to their teaching in person is worth more than reading hundreds of books. However, not everyone can have the privilege of receiving direct instruction from them. Personal experience with Great Masters is the key to greater skills and effects.
After studying with books and Great Masters, clinical experience is essential. Each patient is different. Even the ancient wisdom or Great Masters' instruction doesn't always work. Practitioners need to actually use what they have learned and adjust it in their own way by treating many patients. Clinical experience is the key to the ability to figure out the best way to treat each patient according to the physical constitution of the patient.

With Master Wang Tai-Long
The first generation of his family was the court physician of Qianlong Emperor of Qing dynasty in China. Since then, his family has been the head of Longmen school acupuncture technique for 10 generations. For me, he is the teacher of Master Tung's Magic Points, Longmen school acupuncture technique, and the ideas and practice of Taoism. Most of all, he is the guiding light of my life.
