This presentation will provide an anatomical basis for distal needling in the treatment of neck conditions. The method integrates biomedical findings, myofascial anatomy, and a traditional Taiwanese system known as Tung’s points. The benefits of using non-local points will be discussed and compared with local needling. Increase your clinical efficiency by including non-local points in your initial treatment strategies.
