Tam Healing and Tong Ren Therapy

Tong Ren Therapy - Energy Healing for Cancer and other Difficult Conditions

What is Tong Ren Energy Healing?

Tong Ren energy healing was developed by Tom Tam as a therapy for internally healing a patient's energy system by using the collective unconscious, as defined by Dr. Carl Jung, for internally accessing that energy system.

Tom has found that Tong Ren energy healing is an effective method for healing people with cancer and other serious illnesses.

In the winter of 2001, Tom successfully healed a client with lung cancer by using energy healing exclusively. After that, Tom set up a healing class for cancer patients and, at the same time, took the opportunity to train his students in this healing technique.

By February 2002, the first healing class began. During the next three years, more than 2200 people have attended the Guinea Pig healing classes. As of late, the class has drawn people with diseases such as Multiple Sclerosis, Parkinson Disease, Rheumatoid Arthritis, Lyme Disease, RSD, and HIV/AIDS -

The Guinea Pig classes utilize Tom Tam's Healing System. The basis of energy healing is that energy removes blockages in the body that cause illness. Removal of these blockages restores the natural flow of 'Chi' energy so that the body naturally corrects itself and therefore functions properly and heals.

The Energy Healing aspects of Tong Ren Therapy are part of the larger Tom Tam Healing System which utilizes acupuncture, qi gong and tuina for healing. The system is based on Master Tam's years of clinical practice and research and utilizes both western and eastern medical thought.
