Prostate Cancer Testimonial
Stage 4 Prostate Cancer

When the doctors told me that I had late-stage cancer, and would go down a predictably short path, I knew mainstream medicine would not be the foundation of my healing plan. A friend told me of Tong-Ren healing, and soon I was attending sessions and feeling the benefit. It was there that I met Monica Calvo, the consummate multi-disciplinary healer.

Monica brings all her training and experiences, into each and every session. She is skilled in the arts of Tong-Ren, Tui-Na massage, acupuncture, Chinese medicine, and so much more. What is of particular significance to all her clients is her practical experience, in dealing with disease and ailments. She has witnessed first-hand the things that work, as well as the potential pitfalls, people may run into. For me, she has become a voice of reason, as well as a precise practitioner, and in totality she is able to zero in on the exact treatment I need.

It has been almost a year since my late-stage diagnosis. I have had to accept some conventional treatment (no chemotherapy) to keep my body strong enough to heal, but mostly I have chosen an alternative path, with Monica at the center of my efforts. I am please to say that after my latest scans, the cancer in my body is being held in check, and may even be pulling back in places. These are definitely unpredictable results by mainstream standards, but for those of us who believe in our own powers to heal, having a friend like Monica to guide us is a real blessing.     – Pat Vitale




From Julie Picardi
If you know anyone that needs healing for cancer or any other treatments, definitely check this out. Monica Calvo used to treat my mom and this alternative healing prevented my mom from experiencing the horrible side effects associated with her brain tumor. I see Monica on a regular basis for healing and she is the best!

I’m in the same Stage IV boat and Monica has been a life saver for me too. I will also write a testimonial but want all to know now how much Monica has helped me physically, emotionally and psychologically. Sometimes she thinks I don’t listen to her but I take her opinions very seriously and always consider them when making decisions. Love you Monica Calvo.      – Lina Del Vecchio Bergin



Ovarian cancer

After being diagnosed with Stage 3C ovarian cancer in September 2011 followed by 6 rounds of chemotherapy and abdominal surgery to remove a tumor with hysterectomy,  I began looking into alternative therapies, including Reiki, yoga and mediation to maintain good health, when I discovered Tom Tam, Tong Ren and the Monica Calvo Healing Center in August 2012.
I am pleased to highly recommend Monica Calvo, Tong Ren and Tom Tam’s system as an essential healing modality for any disease that we may encounter in our lives.
Monica Calvo is a gifted healer with an intuitive sense of how to connect with others emotionally, physically and spiritually to lead them on the path to better health. I believe in the blockage theory as the main cause of my disease and that Tong Ren therapy is helping to keep me healthy. Happily I can report that I remain cancer free and that my formerly underactive thyroid is within normal limits without the aid of medication… and I give thanks for that every day!     – Deb Hunt




“ I called Mónica because of a bad toothache. She did cupping on my face for few minutes along with Tong Ren Healing. Now I am pain-free. Thank you Mónica.     – Mary Benoir




Degenerative and herniated discs

Good morning Monica, Dr. Batlivala, and Lindsay!


Monica, I want to say THANK YOU for healing my degenerative & herniated discs, sciatica, and scoliosis at my recent appointment on Sept. 2. Yippee!!

I would like to offer my personal testimony to the validity of Tong Ren healing.

I am a 59 year old watercolor artist, former middle school Art teacher, single mother of 3, grandmother of 3. I went back to college in my late 30′s with 3 children to support, to pursue my dream of becoming an Art teacher. I graduated in 1991 with a BA in Art Education. During my teaching, I herniated 2 discs, (never had surgery, but did physical therapy) and in 2000 became physically disabled due to multiple chemical sensitivities from the toxic air in the school, substantiated by Dr. Susan Korrick at the Brigham, Boston, and had to quit my Art teaching job.

In 2002 for arthritis, I began going to Tong Ren group healings in Quincy & Haverhill, MA where every disease and illness is cured. My arthritis was healed. I took Tom Tam’s Tong Ren certification class in 2007 and have been individually treated by Monica Calvo in Medford MA.

After a hip injury in October 2010 I went to my primary care physician Dr. Lisa Doyle at The Elliott in Hooksett NH, who did an MRI, then referred me to NH NeuroSpine Institute, in Bedford NH, Zubin S. Batlivala, MD.

Dr. Batlivala did several tests on the nerves in my spine and legs. He told me I had to have spine surgery, but I declined, explaining I use Tong Ren Therapy and would not be cut. Dr. Batlivala seemed genuinely interested in Tong Ren and asked me to bring in Tong Ren information, which I did. After my surgery refusal he suggested I have physical therapy, but also cautioned me that if I came to him again, I must have surgery. I did take his advice to have physical therapy there. On my second physical therapy visit, the physical therapist actually did more damage to my already debilitating condition, and I limped away using a cane. So it was hurting, but happily that I continued with Tong Ren sessions.

These experiences have taught me that Tong Ren Therapy works all the time, every time. It’s “lazy bum healing” for me forever!

“April 8, 2011

During my annual eye exam last year, the eye doctor found some bleeding in the back of my left eye. She said this retinopathy was caused by my diabetes which I’ve had for 12 years.

The doctor told me to return for a six month follow up appointment to keep track of the bleeding.

During those six months my average blood sugar numbers were up to 300 most days. At Tong Ren Classes, I began requesting tapping for retinopathy at my weekly or bi weekly guinea pig classes. And just before it was time to return for my follow up eye exam, I increased my Ton Ren treatment by adding phone sessions and online sessions for about 3 or 4 weeks. I also started weekly treatments by Monica which included Tui Na and Tong Ren specifically for my eyes and for diabetes. When I returned to see the eye doctor six months later, after she first found the bleeding, there was no sign of retinopathy. As she was shining the light into my eyes, the doctor stated, ‘I am looking very closely and I cannot see any signs of bleeding at all!’

I was thrilled to hear that news and credit Tong Ren with this healing.

Thank You So much, Monica!”     –Claire Semler


Stage III melanoma

“I was diagnosed with Stage III melanoma in April 2009 when I was 29 years old. As a patient at Dana Farber, I had two surgeries and a drug treatment therapy that was recommended by my doctors. In February 2010, nearly a year after my diagnosis, a friend introduced me to Tong Ren. I was skeptical, but thought that it couldn’t possibly hurt. I began attending classes and immediately felt different – I had more energy and in general felt more positive, happier and even optimistic about the future. After careful consideration, I decided to end the treatment therapy six months earlier than recommended. More than a year and a half after diagnosis, my scans have been clean. I feel forever indebted not only to Tong Ren and the practitioners, but also to the friend who introduced me to it.”  — Kim



“I was trying to get pregnant for the past 6 years. In the last year and a half I was finally able to get pregnant, but sadly had two miscarriages. The first one was no explanation.  The second one was due to a problem with the placenta. The doctors suggest  I see a infertility specialist, but after speaking with a coworker Tong Ren with Monica was suggested.

I got pregnant 3 weexs after attending , I am now 4 months pregnant and my doctors are very pleased with my progress. I have no issues.” — Kelly Walker


Metabolism – Weight Loss

“I lost 18ps and 4 waist sides as well as feelings have come back in my face after 3 months of coming here.

I was diagnosed with Narcolepsy from the doctors.” — Roger Doherty



“I procrastinated for more than two months to call Monica for treatment.  Once I did, it only took three times to feel well of my asthma to the extent that I am not using inhalers any longer.  Not only her therapeutic  hands are great but her grace and support help you heal.  The feeling of peace and relaxation is incredible!” —Blanca Silvestrini 


Meniere Disease

“I was diagnosed with Meniere’s Disease over 17 years ago and have suffered from severe bouts of dizziness as well as constant tinnitus and decreased hearing. After discovering tong ren, I was referred to Monica by my acupuncturist to further work on the blockages in my neck. It was the best thing I’ve ever done. My dizzy attacks are pretty much gone, the tinnitus is almost nonexistent and my hearing has increased (doctors originally told me I would become deaf in that ear).” — Katherine Murphy


Myasthenia Gravis

”To whom it may concern:

Approximataly forty years ago I was diagnosed with a debilitating disease called MYASTHENIA GROVIS that had me draging througth life. ( He was a renowned internist from Medford). He put me on medicine that did help a lot.

Afther his death I went on to two other doctors who confirmed the diagnosis and continued the medication. I still did no have the some energy everyone around me demostrated so I stopped the meds and decided to give Tong Ren a try.

Then my doughter out of love asked me to see her doctor for a checkup, the long and the short of it is he says I never had MYASTHENIA GRAVIS in other words he was colling the other doctors (3) Mistaken.

All I can say is I feal better and more alive today at 86 than  I  ever felt in my whole life and I thank Mònica all the wonderfull people who worked their energy on me and my son Jack who introduce me to TONG REN.

This is my Testimony freely given.” —Joyce Noble
