I attend classes regularly through the week, and participate in varying roles depending on the group, although my schedule has been revised as I move north to Maine. I am open to finding space to add a Tong Ren General Healing group in Southern Maine once I am settled in Wells. I can generally be found at any of these Tong Ren healing groups, as well as filling in for other practitioner’s groups from time to time. I am happy to welcome all of you to either the in-person or webcast groups when you are available to participate.
MONDAY:Haverhill-Tapping for General Healing/Anusuya Quinn 9:30-10:30 AM
WEDNESDAY:Webcast for General Healing/Anusuya Quinn 9:00-10:00 AM
THURSDAY:Haverhill-Webchat for General Healing/Laura DiGregorio 8:30-9:30 AM
FRIDAY:Conference Call for General Healing/Anusuya Quinn 12:00-1:00 PM
I also spend time doing private Tong Ren Distance Sessions over the phone, and creating treatment protocols for people who would like to treat themselves or their loved ones on a regular basis.
Read this description of chi a few days ago and thought it would be good to share. It is quoted from the Tong Ren Healing pamphlet published by Oriental Culture Institute Healing Research Foundation (OCIHRF), and is an excellent description of what chi is.
“Chi or Qi is also known as the life force or the energy inherent in all things. Chi has been empirically documented in China for approximately 5000 years. In Western culture, chi is probably best understood by university researchers working on non-local effects in sub-atomic physics. These studies validate the concept that chi is the fundamental magneto-electric field in the universe. In our bodies, chi is equivalent to bio-electricity, which is essential for maintaining healthy nerve impulses that are required for nourishing cells so they can self-repair. Universal chi is accessed through the collective unconscious. Tong Ren practitioners act as conduits to guide the healing chi energy of the collective unconscious past the blockages in the patient, so the chi can produce healing by nurturing the body back to its healthy homeostasis state.”
I offer Distance Tong Ren Healing Sessions over the phone, or on Skype. I like to offer complimentary treatments to people interested in experiencing how it works for them. Doing private work allows us to focus on specific health issues, whether they are physical or emotional. If you or anyone you know would like to try it out, you can send an email request to email@example.com, or you could private message me on Facebook. We can set up a convenient time for a 20 minute complimentary session.
I am continuing with the Wednesday morning webcast from 9-10 AM. Each person who puts a request in is treated individually, but any of us participating receive the chi no matter who is being treated. In my case, home is where the heart is, so I love sharing a webcast from home with the larger Tong Ren community. Love that we share chi all around the world in the webcasts.
Everyone is invited to join the conference calls. Conference calls are Tong Ren healing sessions done over the phone in a group setting and are free for anyone to join. The format varies from group to group, and reflects the personal styles of various practitioners.
My Friday group offers treatment for each participant individually, from 12:00 – 1:00 PM Eastern Time.
With the season changing, and the days shortening, it seems like a good time to shift our Monday evening healing group to the morning. Monday evening Tong Ren has been a standing tradition. It ran as a collaboration between several practitioners through the years. I’ve been on my own for several months, and personally love listening to Tom’s Monday evening class laying on my sofa. I often relax (and nap) before getting up for Tong Ren group. It is always hardest when it’s dark and cold, as it will be in upcoming months.
People have asked about more morning classes and I often spend time in the office on Monday’s with Yvonne. It is more convenient for some people to combine acupuncture treatments with a morning Tong Ren group, and it feels good to start the week doing Tong Ren. As of October 5th, the Monday Tong Ren General Healing group will be from 9:30-10:30 AM, at 85 Essex Street, 2nd Floor, Haverhill, MA 01830.
Starting something new. There is a link to access the Wednesday morning webcast under the Broadcast Tab on the upper left side at tongrenstation.com. It can also be accessed by going directly to my broadcast page, which can be found at http://tongrenstation.com/anusuya.
I take up to 3 requests from each participant, and work individually on each person who puts a request in.
If anyone is interested in keeping up with announcements about the webcasts, they are on the Blue Water Tong Ren Facebook page. The Blue Water Tong Ren Facebook page is closed to comments from anyone other than members, but is visible to all. Always happy to add members. If you would like to be part of the group, please send me a request on FB.
Rare to have a day go by that does not include Tong Ren. Look forward to being able to share it with a few more friends via webcast.
This is one of my favorite Tong Ren videos. It’s a presentation done at Mass General Hospital that was recorded. Although the man who speaks is an MD, he is sharing his experience as a patient who has explored both traditional medicine and alternative energy healing modalities.
Tong Ren is a form of energy healing developed by Tom Tam, while he was practicing acupuncture in the Boston area. Tong Ren is a blend of East and West. It relies on Western knowledge of anatomy and physiology as well as Western diagnostics, and combines those with the Eastern concept of maintaining a healthy flow of “chi,” or life force, to maintain health. Many people come for treatment after they have been diagnosed by a medical doctor, and many conditions that do not respond well to Western medicine respond positively to Tong Ren.
While doing acupuncture work, Tom observed that many people with the same diagnoses had blockages in the same areas of their bodies. Those observations led him to develop the Tong Ren system of points that we use to open the blockages. In Tong Ren, we believe there can be energy blockages in the blood flow, nerve flow, or bioelectrical energy in the body, and that these blockages eventually lead to a state of disease. The goal of Tong Ren is to open and remove the blockages so the body can heal itself. Blockages create resistance, causing the body to function less than perfectly. As the blockages grow, our health deteriorates.
Tong Ren is also based on Jung’s theory of the “collective unconscious,” and is believed to draw its energy from this source. It can be used at a distance as well as in person. Each practitioner contributes to the collective unconscious, so as the belief system has grown, so has the power of the healing available. We use an acupuncture doll as a tool that serves as an energetic representation of the body and a magnetic hammer used to tap on the doll to direct the chi and open energy blockages. People frequently respond with certain sensations, some of which can be physically seen. One of the most common responses is for the skin tone to visibly change during treatment, so one can actually see something is changing. Other responses may include tingling, heaviness, warmth, or a sense of relaxation.
Anyone who is interested in checking out Tong Ren is welcome to attend one of the group sessions. Many of the groups are offered on a donation basis, making it readily available to everyone who would like to participate. Tong Ren is also available via Webcast and through Conference Calls. Many practitioners also offer private sessions.
