Tong Ren can help to heal cancer, auto immune disorders such as Lyme or Fibromyalgia, injuries, heart problems, stress, grief, depression, hormone balance, and weight loss to name just a few. Tong Ren can promote positive results for just about anything and for people and animals!
Tong Ren focuses on removing blockages in the physical and energy body, when they are cleared the body can restore balance and heal itself.
The Tong Ren Healing system was created by Tom Tam through intense studies and clinical practice. Tong Ren integrates the western understanding of anatomy, physiology and diagnosis with the energetic aspect of Traditional Chinese Medicine.
Tong ren restores health and vitality by removing blockages of the natural flow of chi, neural bioelectricity, blood or hormones. A small human anatomical model, or doll is used to represent people (and animals) on which the practitioner taps on targeted points with a lightweight magnetic hammer. Each issue or ailment has a combination of points that through trial and error and understanding of anatomy, physiology and energy meridians has proven to be effective for that issue or ailment.
Some benefit from hands-on treatments in addition to the doll and tapping. In doing Tuina massage in the Tong Ren style I focus on the breaking up blockages along the spine of people and animals.
After 5 or 10 minutes animals usually curl up and relax and look quite peaceful during a session. Cats purr. Some fall asleep.
The first time I went to a Tong Ren class I felt like I received an enormous infusion of oxygen in my lungs. After a lifetime of chronic asthma that at times was barely under control with multiple medications and inhalers, this was like a miracle to me. Suffice to say I was sold and continued to attend Tong Ren classes for a variety of health concerns – physical and emotional, eventually becoming a practitioner myself. Over time I have seen very good results for people and animals.
I am a Certified Tong Ren Practitioner and also offer Tuina massage in the Tong Ren style.For more information: http://www.tongrenstation.com/
