Weh-Chieh Young – one of Master Tung’s longest-serving apprentices – writes “It is a pity that many doctors do not use bloodletting…If properly conducted, unimaginable results can be seen. As to some acute diseases, the effect of bloodletting is far better than that of acupuncture. It is to some extent true that any acupuncturist who is not familiar with bloodletting cannot be viewed as a proficient one.”
For many, introducing bloodletting, or even expanding its use in the clinic, can be difficult. In addition, there is not an abundance of bloodletting courses out there to help with this. Dean’s recorded seminar addresses these issues, by emphasizing “practical bloodletting” – gentle, easily-implemented techniques of bleeding that even acupuncturists who have been hesitant to bleed can easily use in their clinic. The techniques covered are easily accepted by patients, and safe for both patient and practitioner. In addition to techniques, specific protocols for many difficult-to-treat conditions are covered.
Dean also shares different treatment strategies and experiences he has had in the clinic. This video also includes live demonstrations.

About Dean Mouscher
Dean Mouscher, L.Ac. has practiced acupuncture in the Chicago area for over 15 years. During this time, he became fascinated with bloodletting, having successfully used it to resolve some extremely difficult cases that had been resistant to every other therapy. After studying all the material he could find on the subject, Dean went on to develop refinements of technique that have resulted in high success rates and acceptance by both practitioners and patients. Dean currently “lets” some 10-25 patients weekly at his busy Chicagoland clinic.
