Hi Derek. Thanks for your interest in Mr Chong Yoon Yen. I am replying you via a new post so that those who are curious may also read my reply,
About Mr Chong’s healing gift
If you are acquainted with natural gifts of telepathy, telekinesis, mind reading and so forth then it may not be so difficult to accept the fact that some of us are endowed with “gifts” that others don’t have. Or perhaps we have those “gifts” but we are not aware of them and thus, do not pursue the journey to harness the potential of the gift.
Mr Chong is from the state of Johore, the southernmost state that’s closest to Singapore. From what I know, Mr Chong is a Qigong exponent AND has been endowed with what we call “healing hands”. Coupled with that, Mr Chong had also studied Western chiropractic to enhance his knowledge of healing. That is to say, he is able to tell you which part of your bone structure is in need of healing. Combining chiropractic with age-old oriental healing techniques, Qigong and his gift (universal healing) – you get the best, so to speak. If you have read my earlier post where I featured a picture of Mr Chong – you can immediately tell that he is a Qigong master. Just look at his frame and stature!
Qigong is derived from two words – “Qi” meaning energy and “gong” as in “Gong-Fu” (or better known as Kung Fu). The essence of Qigong lies in the breathing technique (internal) and harnessing energy from nature (external). Bodhidharma (Sanskrit, or “Bodhidhamma” in Pali), the Indian Buddhist monk taught the then weak Shaolin monks the proper breathing techniques so as to enhance their energy, increase vigour and defend against the then marauders in 5th/6th Century China.
As I know, there are 7 different ways of breathing. To get acquainted with external Qi, just take a walk in the park in the morning. You’ll find the air fresher. And if you use your palms and gently move them across a tree or a bush – you can feel a tingling sensation on your fingertips. That is Qi – or energy.
All of us are composed of energy. Energy is our living force. In fact, the ancient texts mentions about the 4 elements inside us – FIRE (warmth), WATER (blood, saliva, urine, sweat), EARTH (hard organs, bones), and WIND (breath). There is another element – MIND which is mental energy. In whatever way you look at it – there is energy inside all of us.
Energy attracts energy. Simply put, positive energy attracts negative energy. For diagnosis, Mr Chong will summon his Qi to channel into your body to seek out the negative energy. Think Yin & Yang!
About my son’s condition
It should be about 2 years ago when my son told me that his coccyx (the tail bone) was giving him problem. His schoolmate pushed him hard against a wall, resulting in a bruised coccyx. He complained about pain when sitting, and when standing up after sitting. If left untreated, this can lead to a number of ailments, and chief among them – impotency (in later life), weak legs, pain after every bowel movement.
Mr Chong used this thumb to press against the coccyx, applying both pressure and Qi. Then later, plastered a concoction of aromatic herbs (according to my son – “foul smelling”) that should only be removed after 24 hours.
One month later – problem solved. No more pain, no more complaints.
About my friend (name withheld)
Mr X returned home one day after work and dozed off seated on a sofa. Then his phone rang. He awoke and wanted to reach out for the phone, To his utter shock – he couldn’t move his left arm. It was then that he realised he had a stroke which affected part of his left shoulder and entire left hand. I do believe he told me that he had difficulty speaking and swallowing.
I met him at Mr Chong’s clinic. He showed me his affected arm. It was smaller and darker than his other good right arm. The skin was also peeling off. Yet – he could twitch his thumb and fingers – and that was after the 2nd session with Mr Chong. Before that he was admitted into a private hospital. He was told he had to undergo an operation and there was a 50%-50% chance of recovery. While in hospital, he had to undergo painful physiotherapy which made his cry.
I lost touch with him and met him somewhere in mid-2012. His arm was back to normal, could hold a mobile phone and yes, he even demonstrated that he could also use his fingers to dig his nose.
He also told me that he went back to the private hospital for a routine check-up and even the doctor was surprised that he had recovered without surgery and “modern” medicine.
What to expect and NOT to expect
- Do not expect instant recovery. Your chances of recovery depend largely on your body and Mr Chong’s treatment.
- Do not despair. As mentioned, your mind is the chief controller (mental energy) and patience is a virtue.
- If your condition is serious, do seek out a good acupuncturist. I have posted about Wan Seng Acupuncture and the Sifu is really good.
- EXPECT to wait like crazy. Be patient because there are old people in need of treatment. Just like you too, they have come a long way!
- If you have called up and made a reservation with Mr Chong – do not EXPECT your turn as promised. Chances are, your turn will come about 2 hours later.
There you are, Derek. I hope this post answers your question. I do get backaches now and then. As I have said, do not expect miracles and my recurrent problem is due to sitting down on a chair for prolonged periods staring at the computer. That’s a Writer’s job.
