Tam Healing and Tong Ren Therapy for Sleep Apnea

Theory and Applications

Tam Healing And Tong Ren Therapy For Sleep Apnea

The areas and points listed below are those that may be involved diagnostically (i.e. "blocked") in those experiencing sleep disorders (sleep apnea). The Tom Tam / Tong Ren Therapy system is heavily focused on the scalp and huatuojiaji points along the spine.

These areas may be utilized regardless of treatment technique. That is, whether you use acupuncture, massage, qigong and/or tongren - the focus remains directed towards improving circulation in the designated areas.

For acupuncture specifically, treatments within this style would combine these areas with more traditional points based on the overall diagnosis in Chinese Medicine terms.

Within an acupuncture session, most often qi gong, acupuncture and tuina would be applied towards the major points in the neck and spine as appropriate.
