Super Charging Tong Ren Therapy: Healing methods that can support & harmonize the healing power of Tong Ren 

After Tong Ren helped Janet recover from a life-threatening illness in 2005 we became passionate about using this healing technique to help others.  Our participation over the years in Tom’s guinea pig classes and the free Tong Ren conference calls led us to delve into the underlying power of Tong Ren and the important role played by the mind-body connection.

Nutrition and Tong RenA Phenomenal Recipe for Repair

When Chi is flowing the body is better able to repair. Do you eat well enough that all the right groceries are showing up at the work site? In modern life, people don’t consume all the foods their caveman era genes are counting on for mending injured cells. Chemotherapy has damaged nerves, but are you eating elk and yak, so the L-carnitine is there to reverse the neuropathy? Chances are you’re not grabbing grubs from a rotting stump today, and didn’t eat 4 packages of leaves either. This lecture reviews some foods and supplements that help reverse festering repair problems. Case studies are presented.   | Bio

Creative Problem Solving
The enjoyment of learning and discovery has led to great innovation, as seen in Tom Tam's Tong Ren Therapy. Tom is also a published poet. Artists are known for their creative problem solving ability. Mine started as a little girl wanting to quietly communicate with my siblings sleeping in the next room. Dad had taught my brother and I Morse code, ah ha. Next step, taptaptapping the code on the wall. Now in my sixties, I find myself taptaptapping again, this time on a doll with a hammer using the code developed by Tom Tam for Tong Ren Therapy. Funny how life seems to go full circle!    | Bio
