Tam Healing and Tong Ren Therapy for Multiple System Atrophy

The areas and points listed below are those that are commonly found blocked in adults and children with "Multiple System Atrophy" 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.

Generally we combine qi gong, acupuncture and tuina along most of the major points in the neck and spine as appropriate.
