Tam Healing and Tong Ren Therapy for Astigmatism
The areas and points listed below are those that are commonly found blocked in adults and children with "Astigmatism" and related issues. The system focuses on the scalp and Huatuojiaji points along the spine. You may use acupuncture, massage and/or the tong ren to focus on the following areas for healing. For details about the system consider reading the Tom Tam Healing System textbook.
