The Tong Ren Healing Method: A Survey Study
A study conducted on Tong Ren Healing has been recently published. We want to share this with everyone. Here’s an excerpt:
Participants: Adults attending group sessions.
Measures: Changes in conditions attributed to TR.
Results: Response rate 89% (n ¼ 265). Cancer (30.6%), endocrine/autoimmune (17.5%) and musculoskeletal disorders (17.2%) were the most commonly reported conditions. Among respondents who had attended more than one session (n ¼ 216), 30% used superlatives (e.g., ‘‘amazing’’) to describe TR’s impact, and one-third noted improved quality of life.
No adverse effects were described. Anxiety, depression, cancer, and autoimmune disorders appeared to have the greatest treatment responses, with 63.8%, 61.0%, 60.3%, and 58.1% of participants with these conditions reporting substantial improvements.
Conclusion: This first study documenting self-reported effects of TR shows subjective benefits
and no adverse effects. Further research on this approach is warranted.
