Hayley Mermelstein has an extensive background and training in the healing arts. Hayley’s journey began 25 years ago when she had a dramatic spiritual experience that influenced her to begin studying health and healing. (You can read all about it in her book.) Hayley has trained extensively in Chinese medicine, qi gong, shiatsu, meditation, herbal studies, Western nutrition, dietary counseling, anatomy and physiology, the psychology of healing and much more. Hayley is a graduate of The New England School of Acupuncture has been a licensed acupuncturist and energy healer for over ten years. She maintains a thriving practice in Amherst, Ma.
Her teachers have included Ellen Tadd, author of The Wisdom of the Chakras, from whom she learned a great deal about the chakra system. She also studied with Tom Tam, a powerful acupuncturist and healer. Tam is the founder of Tong Ren, an energy healing technique that involves tapping on a Tong Ren doll for the purpose of releasing blockages and promoting healing either in oneself or others.
Hayley synthesized what she learned from Tom Tam and Ellen Tadd to create her own unique healing system called Tong Ren Chakra Balancing (TRCB).
It is Hayley’s desire that TRCB provides others with the tools they need to promote balance and healing in their minds, bodies and spirits and, in doing so, elevate consciousness and contribute to the healing of the planet.
