Breathing Again. An Asthma Success Story.

I have been receiving treatments at the Collective Healing Center (CHC) since January 2018. My introduction to the CHC originated in June of 2017 in Magnolia where the Ayurveda Wellness Center offered a workshop on Tong Ren. Noel presented a most interesting demonstration of one of the components of the Tom Tam Healing System, known as Tong Ren. Without excessive detail I can tell you that my interaction with Noel that evening set the wheels in motion for a dramatic change in my overall health...

A Breath Of Fresh Air And A Chance To Avoid Chemo

My health started to decline about two years ago with no diagnosis except for my existing diagnosis of systemic lupus erythematosus (SLE). After losing a lot of weight and suffering from shortness of breath for an extended period of time, they finally decided to take my concerns seriously. They biopsied a large lymph node on my neck and diagnosed me with large B-cell lymphoma this past October 2018.

Although I was petrified, I started chemotherapy at the end of November. My first pet scan showed I was filled with cancer throughout my torso. I told Monica about the diagnosis and I started seeing her more consistently. I had chemo every three weeks and got pneumonia twice, which allowed me to get a break from chemo while Monica continued to work on me with Tong Ren, massage, and the laser and whatever other gadget she could try to assist in my healing.

Chuck Christian’s Path to Healing Prostate Cancer and Becoming a Tong Ren Practitioner

My name is Chuck Christian, I played football for the University of Michigan from 1977-81 Rose Bowl. After being exposed to the coaching of Bo Schembechler for 4 years, I believed that I could do anything. I felt invincible. Bo’s motto was, “Those who stay will be Champions.” I carried that mindset throughout my life and it helped me be successful. Almost 3 years ago, I faced a foe that was far more intimidating than an OSU linebacker. It was cancer.  My wife, a nursing...

Dear Tom. Thank You. Joyce.

Dear Tom.
Thank you for helping me become an improved version of myself. These last 15 months have been an amazing journey of healing and transformation. I experienced the spectrum of Tong Ren Therapy of acupuncture, Tui Na, general and anti-cancer healing classes, and the various ultrasound wave healing devices. I am learning more than I can say. I am feeling better than I thought possible. I am grateful to you and the Tong Ren community.

Baby Rowan’s Path to Healing Pediatric Cancer

I first attended Tong Ren at the suggestion of the director of Lucy’s Love Bus — an organization that provides funding for complementary therapies for pediatric cancer patients. My son, Rowan, was diagnosed with intermediate risk neuroblastoma in July of 2018 and while he had a partial response to chemotherapy treatment and had had surgery to remove as much of the tumor as possible, there were still portions of the tumor left behind on his major blood vessels and in his spine. The plan was...

Inspiration and Hope. A Journey To Wellness

I began going to The Tam Center For Healing two years ago after being diagnosed with several chronic and debilitating health conditions. I was mostly bedridden and unable to work. I was taking ten prescription medications that were not improving or stabilizing my health. That’s when I decided to go to the Tam Center. Tom Tam and his team of healers identified blockages, or areas of tension, along my spine that corresponded with my range of ailments. By gradually opening, or releasing, those blockages I...
