Overview

Dr Li Yong runs several internship programs including an intensive two or three week course, in which the student trains in the clinic five days a week, working alongside the doctor as a trainee intern.

The course includes hands-on practice with Dr Li as well as several of the other doctors working in the clinic. The training will involve the following: Correctly identification of the meridians and acupressure points and their functions; massage, applying percussion and manipulating meridians; learning some basic background information about TCM and its diagnostic methods; provide opportunities to apply the massage techniques learned.

At the end of each course, you’ll be presented with a certificate to prove you’ve successfully completed each level of the internship program, co-signed by the Double Dragon Alliance and Dr Li, and are now qualified to practice Dr Li’s Tuina system at the appropriate level.

The courses are open to complete beginners, as well as students who already have some training in massage techniques (e.g. western or eastern disciplines like Swedish or Thai massage, reflexology, aromatherapy etc), and who wish to benefit from the additional techniques to be found in Chinese Tuina massage, thus honing and refining their own massage techniques, improving their understanding of the way the body and energy works within TCM and include a new element to their own particular training.

For students wishing to continue their studies following completion of all 3 levels of the intensive programs, there is further clinical training, designed to perfect the techniques, learn more about TCM’s diagnosis and treatment methodology, get clinic time and treat patients within Dr Li’s clinic.

This course can be tailored for groups or individuals on request.

I am working in a clinic in Manchester, NH, called Chi NeuroHealth Center www.chiwellness.com. A wellness center offering Chinese Medicine and Tuina specializing in Neurological conditions for children and adults. It is fairly new and we work with other more severe conditions MS, cancer, chronic pain, etc. I am enjoying the work!

I use the technique that I learned from Dr.Li and am having wonderful results, especially with MS. The neurologist, one of the founders, has MS and really is promoting Tuina. I thought Dr. Li, you would like to know that your work is international and is having positive results here in America. I think of everyone there often especially when I do the tapping on the Gall Bladder meridian.

I think about coming back, hoping I could work with everyone again!!!

Student Review:
Evelyne Tissier

The tuina course was held at Dr. Li’s clinic under his supervision and the guidance of some of his doctors. The curriculum covered the system of meridians and their major points, the different massage techniques, introduction to pulse and tongue diagnostic as well as moxibustion.

I really appreciated the fact that Dr. Li took time every day to teach me on a one to one basis, covering both theory and practice. The rest of the day I practiced that day’s assignment with some of the doctors who were available or was given a tuina treatment so I could familiarize myself with the various techniques. Being able to practice on different people and being “treated” by different doctors was a great help as I could compare techniques - and styles - and learn more in depth. I was also given the possibility of asking friends to come to the clinic, so I would have more opportunities to practice.

Occasionally, due to the large number of patients coming to the clinic on certain days, when all the doctors were busy and there was no treatment table available specifically for me to use; I could then observe the doctors carrying out treatments, or Dr. Li would ask me to be present when he was treating a particular patient so he could explain the case and his diagnostic technique for that particular patient. I took that opportunity to ask many questions. I also used that time to study the textbook and the charts with the help of the translator.

The ambiance at the clinic was most convivial and relaxed which made me feel very welcome and free to ask many questions. The Chinese students who translated for me were very helpful and diligent, trying their best to explain even some of the more specific medical vocabulary.

Both Dr. Li and his assistants were very patient in their explanations, willing to answer any questions and I had no difficulty understanding or making myself understood.

I really enjoyed the course and the way it was held. I must say however that my previous studies of anatomy and western massage combined with my being familiar with Taiji Quan, Qigong and Chinese philosophy were definitely a plus and enabled me to get the most out of this “crash course”. I wish I could have had more time to continue this study with Dr. Li and his staff.

Thank you so much for organizing this course “specially tailored” for my needs with such competent teachers, in a very friendly and professional environment.

 

Dr Li Yong graduated from Shanghai's Traditional Chinese Medicine University in 1998, following which; he studied privately in Dr Chen’s Shanghai clinic, training in Tuina and TCM for a further 4 years. He later studied Acupuncture for a further 2 years in Dr Cai’s Shanghai clinic. He is a fully qualified Doctor of Traditional Chinese Medicine and is qualified to dispense Chinese Herbal Medicine, treat patients with Acupuncture, Moxibustion, Tuina and Cupping among other treatments. 

Dr Li's  specialities are Tuina massage and Acupuncture treatments; providing diagnosis and treatment for a range of ailments and conditions, from the common cold to life-threatening conditions such as cancer, heart disease and liver/digestive ailments.

Doctor Li's clinic, was opened with the "Conjoint Health Advisory Service" in Shanghai and is due to open a second TCM clinic in Shanghai’s Pudong New area later this year. Dr Li’s clients come from all backgrounds and nationalities and for a variety of health concerns and problems. Dr Li’s Tuina system is excellent at health preservation; many clients come for a monthly check up and treatment, in order to preserve good health, as well as being extremely effective at treating all kinds of illnesses and problems.

 

Double Dragon Alliance & Dr Li Yong's Tuina and TCM Internship Program gives students a foundation and introduction into Tuina and TCM from which further studies can be expanded upon. The more intensive courses give more experienced students a valuable look into Dr Li’s Tuina system for aiding recovery from illness/ailments and for promoting and maintaining good health. This program is a 1 week beginners course.

This Course is a training scheme for Tuina massage and TCM and is run in cooperation with Dr Li Yong of the Conjoint Health Advisory Service in Shanghai. The internship program offers intensive training in Tuina and TCM with a qualified TCM doctor working in his clinic, getting the same standard of training as a local intern would receive; with certification at the end of the course for the different training levels received in Dr Li’s Tuina system which covers full body acupressure massage along the meridians, to detoxify, tonify and balance the meridian system.

Dr Li’s Tuina system differs from others in that it uses certain key meridians, namely the Gallbladder, Liver, Bladder and Pericardium meridians to tonify, detoxify and stimulate the blood and energy circulation. Although the massage treatment works on all of the body's meridians in turn, these are the ones that Dr Li and his teachers feel are significant in aiding recovery from illness/ailments and for promoting and maintaining good health. His system is specifically a meridian massage treatment, as well as including acupuncture, cupping and moxibustion too, and doesn't involve muscle massage or bone manipulation/realigning etc.

Please note that this course can be tailored specifically for groups as well as individuals so that students can get the most out of their time studying under under Dr Li Yong.
