Modern Chinese Medicine – Chi Loop by Tom Tam
I first introduced the Chi Loop concept in 2001. Chi Loop is a new addition to the Tom Tam Healing System. The Tom Tam Healing System is one of the foundations of the Tong Ren practice.
Western medicine is based on straightforward anatomy and physiology. Chinese Medicine, on the other hand, is based on the principles of yin/yang, the five elements, the meridian system, etc. Tom Tam’s Chi Loop is a major breakthrough in medicine.
The Chi Loop system is based on the proven principle of the circulation of energy or Chi within the human body. The other proven principle, or law of Nature, which states that the human body is one organic and interconnected whole is another principle that the Chi Loop follows. “All sources of pain are due to a blockage of Chi within the body.” This is the touchstone of Chinese Medicine. Using these principles, along with Western knowledge of anatomy and physiology, practitioners can employ Chi gong, Tuina, and Tong Ren Therapy to diagnose* and heal illness. The healing effects of Chi are without precedent!
The natural and organic manner in which the body operates, the Chi Loop, can be compared to the workings of the electrical system of an automobile. The human brain represents the battery, which is the power source. Chi and blood represent the electrical current that moves through the automobile from the battery. Bodily functions can be compared to turning on the headlights. The Chi Loop models the organic activity within the human body. We continue to have much success by using the Chi Loop system.
* There are various methods used to diagnose a patient’s problem. For example, a Western-trained medical doctor would have his or her own methodology, a Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) doctor would have their own approach, and the Tong Ren practitioner would seek to pinpoint the location of any blockages. These blockages are the underlying and primary cause of illness and disease. In our discussion we are referring to Tong Ren diagnostic criteria.
