Four Horses are primary points for asthma and pneumonia, and are also very good for acute or chronic cough. This point combination is my first choice for colds and flu It is also an excellent choice for
allergies, seasonal allergies, and prpnityne system weakness. It is used for prprhinitis and all prpsinusitis problems, including sinus infection, sinus inflammation, and mucus. Four Horses is effective for nasal prppolyps and nasal atrophy as well. Nasal atrophy means a loss of the ability to smell anosmia , and therefore a subsequent inability to ; this occurs, for example, in post-surgical patients who wake up from anesthesia and cannot smell or taste.
Four Horses are good for prppleurisy, and wonderful for upper back pain. They also treat prpsciatica and prplbp lower back pain due to lung deficiency. These points are very effective for prpbreastpain and prpchestpain, including chest pain due to injury, especially if the pain moves from the front to the sides. Because this very potent point combination is found between the Shao Yang and the Yang Ming channels, it treats breast and chest pain, which are related to Yang Ming, but it also treats pain that migrates to the side, which relates to Shao Yang. Due to the Shao Yang connection, the points are likewise used bilaterally, or for opposite side rib, costal, prpintercostal and prpflankpain. prpintercostalpain
Four Horses excel in treating nearly all kinds of prpskin disorders. Muscle treats muscle. Muscle also treats skin. These are fabulous points for the skin—for prpitching, prppruritis, prpacne, prpherpeszoster shingles, prppsoriasis, and prpeczema. They treat skin fungus as well as thickening of the skin or prpscleroderma. Located very near the stomach channel and in large muscle with significant nerve and blood supplies, these points tonify the spleen and the qi. They adjust the spleen and stomach, and can be very effective in the treatment of prpfibromyalgia and prpmultiplesclerosis, as well as skin disorders. You may also use these points for prpcva hemiplegia, prpfacialis facial paralysis or spasm, and postpartum invasion of external wind chill causing joint pain, also known as after-birth wind.
This point pattern can help the ears, too. For otitis media, ear inflammation, ear infection, deafness, and tinnitus, try Four Horses. The combination is effective for thyroid issues, hyperthyroid, enlarged thyroid, goiter, and protrusion of the eyeballs due to hyperthyroid.
This incredibly versatile combination may also be used for abdominal pain, lower leg strain or trauma, heart problems, and coronary heart disease.
With proper point location and technique, Four Horses will become invaluable tools in any acupuncturist’s clinical repertoire. The versatility of Four Horses places them in the highest category of effectiveness within Master Tung’s extraordinary point system. In the clinic of Dr. Miriam Lee, OMD, her students called these points “Tung’s Magic Points.” Certain practitioners believe that the word “magic” cheapens or trivializes the points. Of course, the points are not really magic, any more than the I-Ching is magic. However, some of us see magic and nearly transcendental inspiration in the mathematical perfection of the I-Ching. Likewise, we find exquisite beauty in Tung’s Acupuncture Points. Other systems offer profound and inspired points as well, but none are more potent than these. The methods and reasons for the points’ effectiveness will continue to expand, the longer we study and practice them. Few people in the history of mankind have made as significant a contribution as Master Tung, to ease the pain and suffering that is the human condition. Today’s practitioners are deeply indebted to Dr. Young Wei-Chieh for bringing Master Tung’s Acupuncture to the United States, and to Dr. Miriam Lee, OMD, for teaching these points to western students; thanks to the generosity and wisdom of these great teachers, countless practitioners and patients reap the benefits of Master Tung’s profound body of work.
