Exciting Update From Our Friends in Italy (June 2021)
Angelo Susi, our Italian liason, recently visited Tong Ren’s Italian counterpart. He shared the following note that includes exciting current updates in Italy.
Hello everyone, My best to you from Italy, which is slowly warming up and opening up from Covid. I arrived in Tavarnuzze, the 28 of April, around 11:30 am to find a town busy with the outdoor market. Dr. Giovanni and Lorenzo welcomed me and they asked me to have a sit, so to disappear in different rooms to treat their patients. They were really busy. Dr. Giovanni and Lorenzo were alternating to have few minutes with me. Dr. Giovanni showed me their offices, the room where they held the classes and all the painting that Giovanni has done during the years. After the tour, Dr. Giovanni showed me his last work, a Lazy Bum Healing book for animals. The title ‘ Easy Pet Healing ‘ is based on the medical intra relations, that means healing the animal so to heal the owner and viceversa. The book (see the pictures below), is well done, it will be translated to English and made copywriter, after that Dr. Giovanni will send it to us.
The idea is to cure all the living beings. For this reason, Dr. Giovanni has trained a couple of veterinary and they are using Tong Ren during their work. The publication of the book will be a reference point for the people in the field that will be trained on Tong Ren. The goal of Tong Ren Italia is to capture all the voluntary people that the government his hiring for the care of animals, and train them in the use of Tong Ren referencing the book. Dr. Giovanni has proved to key government people the ability to succeed in healing a dog that the veterinary community was not able to.
Back with Dr. Giovanni, he tells me that after the course given in Verona, people have asked him to open an office there too, so now, a week per month, they are in Verona, healing and teaching Tong Ren, also, a new person, Umberto, is working there too. Umberto is now busy directing the restoration of a building to use as office.
Dr. Giovanni states that they are very busy in both towns, Firenze and Verona. Patients are coming from all over Italy and they continue their treatments with satisfaction. He stated that they have more patients now, in the short time allowed, then in the regular ( normal ) time and not with problems related to Covid.
The first project that Dr. Giovanni told me is that he is working on one where Tong Ren will be included in the medical and professional formative courses of any category of medicine, doctors, nurses, holistic doctors. Since every year the medical professional has to renew and refresh his medical knowledge, Tong Ren can be part of the credited material to be studied. He believes that in a couple of years, with the help of the Director of the School of Well Being in Verona and Siaf, this project will became reality and used in the nation.
Tong Ren in now thought in three Regions, Veneto, Piemonte and Toscana. Dr. Giovanni, together with Alberto, director of the School of Well Being, are working on a project that will create the basis for a course of Tong Ren, with the duration of three years, recognized nationally but also, as it will be, usable in foreign country. The basic Tong Ren, Tui Na and other massage practice will be thought, while acupuncture is reserved and thought only to people with a medical doctor degree, by law. Dr. Giovanni will teach also, other students to use frequency sounds, magnetic and piezoelectric component to be place on the points of blockage, instead of needles during the patient treatment. This way every medical category will be included.
Dr. Giovanni told me about a friend of him, a medical doctor working in a Hospital that was visiting a patient in her hospital room, that had an ictus on the left side then on the right side and she was in a lot of pain. Dr. Giovanni friend asked if he could do something about using his knowledge of Tong Ren. The doctor in the hospital give the phone to the patient and Doctor Giovanni did a treatment on the patient and at the end he asked how do you feel? The patient replayed ‘ much better now ‘ and Dr. Giovanni heard his friend yelling “I do not believe this” !!!!!
The last news given by Doctor Giovanni is about his daughter Laura that has opened, in Tuscany, and expanding, a resort center that will be able to offer to tourists a base to visit the country side but also a place to be treated or learn Tong Ren.
The center is already active and lately was visited by a French archeologists, she was working in the vicinity in an ancient site. She was treated with agopunture, Tong Ren way, and she was impressed by the result claiming that she had already acupuncture but never with a great results like she just had. Since she will be back for her work, she promised to bring back with her some doctors so to allow them to learn about Tong Ren. – Angelo
