Volume 7 of the Advance Tung Style Acupuncture Series is solely concerned with the application of Master Tung's Acupuncture in the treatment of ophthalmological, otorhinolaryngological and stomatological disorders.  It is entitled Advanced Tung Style Acupuncture because it, like the previous volumes in this series, implies that the user already has a foundation in Master Tung's Acupuncture ( e.g. has taken a course such as those presented by Drs. Wei-Chieh Young, Min-Chuan Wang, Palden Carson, Robert Chu, Esther Su, Richard Tan, Miriam Lee, Susan Johnson, etc. ) This text is not intended for use by the novice but rather as a reference by those who already have a working knowledge of Master Tung's Acupuncture.

Volume 7 contains over 550 pages of text and presents over 640 prescriptions culled from the Tung Acupuncture literature in the Chinese language from the translator's personal library - more than 15 different sources were referenced (several currently out of print).  The author has compiled, collated and translated all of the ophthalmology, otorhinolaryngology and stomatology prescriptions proffered by the Chinese sources noted above and applied accompanying diagrams for each clinical entity to facilitate their application.  Included are author-specific point locations, needling instructions, contraindications and when available, clinical comments, herbal suggestions, lifestyle modifications, etc. all derived from the Chinese sources' clinical experiences with Master Tung's Acupuncture.

The 5 chapters presented in Volume 7 are as follows:  Chapter 1 covers disorders of the eye; Chapter 2 covers disorders of the ear. Chapter 3 covers disorders of the nose; Chapter 4 covers disorders of the throat; and Chapter 5 covers disorders of the mouth.

To reiterate, Volume 7 is entitled "Advanced Tung Style Acupuncture" because it, like its predecessors, implies that the user already has a basic understanding of, and facility with, Master Tung's Acupuncture.
