My family and friends cannot thank you enough for the kindness, pure heart and healing effects that you have brought into our lives. I have not felt well in years and in one day you made me feel like a new person. You have changed my sister’s life with the weight loss thus change her health status that I worry about every day! My nine year old son had psoriasis that was gone in two days with acupuncture and the "magic cream". My fiance has multiple problems including parasites, allergies and GI reflux which he has had major problems with all his life. In just two treatments he has relief. You have touched and changed our lives forever. I am a registered nurse and own a home health agency and personally have seen the dangers of prescription meds and their side effects. Thank you to God for bringing you all into our lives and allowing Kay and Tom to open their home to all of us for your expertise in your fields. I feel grateful and indebted to all of you! I look forward to seeing you all soon and please travel safely home and lastly may you all have peace, love, happiness and prosperity. You all deserve it! As we Americans say...You Rock!
With the Greatest of Gratitude and Many Blessings,

I would like to take this opportunity to share with others about my experience when I visited Dr Tam. First and foremost Dr Tam is a true man of God. He allows God to use him to help people with severe skin conditions. He will tell you up front that he will treat you with all the love but God is the healer. After just two days I could see a noticeable difference in how my skin looked and felt. The herbal pills and topical cream are amazing. If you are suffering from a skin condition with no results from mainstream doctors/dernatologist I would strongly urge you to try Dr. Tam and his natural way through wholistic methods.

Dear Thay Tam,
This is Vuong Thi Dang (Angela). Thank you for helping me get better. I am coming back on October 31. I have had eczema for almost 10 years. Now my skin is smooth but I still have two more appointments to go. Everybody in my family has noticed the change in my skin. I celebrated my 10th birthday and I had a great time. It was a sleepover and I had no problem sleeping. I am really thankful for my healing and I thank God for calling my mother to send me to the right doctor. May God bless Doctor Tam and his wife for helping me recover. I am also proud of him for helping much more people. Thank you so much!

Dear Thầy Tâm,
Mylinn and Duy are doing so well with their skin. They are sleeping well and eating so well. No itching during the night and morning is sleeping well too. Thank you Thầy.
You are the cure.
You seem to specialize in doing thoughtful deeds. Before we ask, you understand our problems and our needs. You help because you want to, you find joy in being kind, and making others happy is the first thing on your minds. You make this world a better place by practicing the art of reaching out to others and by giving… from the heart.

I can not thank you enough for healing my psoriasis. I suffered 20yrs with the awful disease. The first night home from acupuncture treatment I woke about 2:30am to use the bathroom. I was so excited about how good my skin looked I couldn’t go back to sleep. I ended up cleaning house, making my grocery list & exercising. I’m going on my 2nd week & I don’t look like I have psoriasis, it just looks like white sun spots. I am eagerly waiting for my pigment to come back. In the meantime, enjoying the soft smooth skin.
Thank you again,

Dear Dr. Tam
On the behalf of Kenny Tran’s family , we would like to let you know how much we appreciate the treatment that heal the pain of over 40 people in our family including our Grandmothers , Moms, Uncles, Aunts, Sisters, brothers, Nieces, Nephews, and friends. This is a “Miracle” for all of us. We can now live without pain; we can have a good night sleep; we can now eat fruits that we dare to touch in the past. Moreover, it is over joy to see our children play at normal kids and enjoy the foods that they love.
We understand that you and your family have overcome so many obstacles in this journey but still continue to help so many patients. Therefore, we would like to extend our sincerely thank you for your gifted skills to heal others, we wish that your clinic will continue open for treatment.
The Tran’s family
This is your patient from before. My name is Emily Tran. I was allergic to peanuts, and dairy, and I had eczema too. You gave me the treatments at your house. When you did, I felt a lot better in two days! I just wanted to say thank you so much. My skin feels better and I can eat a lot more food and I feel more safe around different foods. And thanks again for everything!
P.S. I will never forget you and what you have done for me. You are my hero!
I would like to sincerely thank you for the treatment that you have administered to my son, Manh Aidan Nguyen, and dad in August. Your daughter, co Phuong, was very gracious and prompt in responding immediately to my email for help. We flew from San Jose, California out of desperation for our son’s severe itching problem and the great Dr. Tam was able to successfully cured him. It is nothing short of a MIRACLE! Believe me, we had him visit with the chairman of the children dermatology department at Standford and they were not successful. I know that you have many greatful patients thanking the service your family provides, but I just wanted to write to thank you again for the miracle that your family have performed. Since I’ve been back in California, my brother, Steve Tu, sister Lisa Loc, and nephew Tommy, has visited Charlotte for treatment and they are all very grateful as well.
My sister Lisa has informed me of the many frustrations with inconsiderate patients coming to your house without appointment and littering on the neighbors property. I humbly ask you to forgive these folks lacking consideration and manners and to not close the clinic because of these folks. Dr. Tam you are a great medicine man and your contribution to everyone is greatly appreciated! I have been a walking infomercial for your great work Dr. Tam and everyone is planning on going, have gone, or buying the medication online. So please do not stop seeing people desperate of your help. Maybe you can put it on the website that patients are seen by appointments only, that is only a suggestion and you guys are doing great! If there is anything I can do for you, please do not hesitate to ask.

My name is Janet Johnson, I am 50 years old, I live in South Carolina. My aunt distributes Dr. Tom’s medicine at her store and this is how I knew about Dr. Tom.
I have psoriasis all over my body for 35 years and no American doctors could help me. I just had 1 acupuncture treatment with Dr. Tom along with taking Anti Toxicities Capsules and apply Psoriasis Cream, I see such a big improvements. I have to say this is a miracle, I can’t believe how quickly I can see the results. I am going to stay here this weekend to do 5 more sessions with Dr. Tom. Thank you so much, this is amazing.
Hello Masters Tam and Ha
We are doing great. My sinuses and allergies are the best in many years.
We have just returned to Ontario, Canada after a week staying Charlotte. The temperature here is only 85˚F but a patient of mine told me this morning that it was too hot for him. I remember feeling quite well in Charlotte and wonder how we stood it last week when the weather were above 100˚F every day. Could it have been those accupuncture needles that you used on us changed our perception? Or was it because of the music you played, the songs that Co Ha sang that cooled off the days?
Coming from a Family Medicine background, I’ve got to say that your home-office was quite an experience to me. Not because it was busy but more because of the free interactions between the patients, the voices of children playing(and crying ;-) ), the stories and the prayers we heard, and the jokes and the laughters. At times it’s feel like there’s too much fun in this office to be a medical office. But I had seen people got treated and healed, in simple, inexpensive but effective ways. I also had seen the hope that you brought to the community for curative treatment of conditions that are often termed "chronic" in Western medicine.
Thank you for open your home, your heart and and being such a gift to us all. And thank you for rekindle the desire in my heart to explore Oriental Medicine. We’ve found the freshness amidst a hot Summer week in Charlotte.

Master Huynh Trong Tam,
I am writing this letter to thank you for all of the kindness that you have given me and my family. When I first visited you, I did not know what to expect, and I was pretty scared to think about someone sticking needles (acupuncture) in me, but you really made me feel comfortable and gave me hope that my skin would clear up. I am already seeing improvement in my skin from the treatment, which is very exciting because I have struggled with eczema for as long as I can remember. Throughout my life I have visited many dermatologists' offices, in hopes that my skin problems would disappear, but to my disappointment it has only in time gotten worse. I am, however, very thankful to finally find a doctor that is capable of helping me with this problem. Thus far, I have seen about a 75 percent improvement with my eczema. I look forward to meeting with you again in the future.
pain, Pain, PAIN - GO AWAY
PLEASE BRING ON THE NEEDLES*!!
Ac.u.puncture (ak’yoo punk’char) the ancient practice, esp. as carried on by the Chinese, of piercing parts of the body with needles in seeking to treat disease or relieve pain (definition found in Webster’s dictionary). Do you wonder why anyone in their right mind would want someone to “bring on the needles”?
A number of years ago, I took a bad fall in a local store, landing on my right hand and buttocks. I had many x-rays taken, saw many doctors and was prescribed pain pills. Because I did not break any bones, the doctors wondered why I continued to complain of pain. I was almost convinced that “it was all in my head” and I knew better because the pain was so intense and constant. I was finally diagnosed as having sustained soft tissue damage in the right shoulder similar to what some athletes suffer. Soft tissue damage does not heal quickly nor does it regenerate itself readily. I was told to get use to living with chronic pain.
From childhood I was familiar with alternative medicine. As children we went to osteopaths and chiropractors rather than depending on traditional doctors and drugs. I am also familiar with and use biofeedback. Today too many doctors prescribe drugs as an easy solution to a medical problem. People can become addicted to prescribed medication so easily. When told I would have to get use to living with pain, I began once again going to a local chiropractor. These treatments would help, but only for a short while. It would be necessary to continue these manipulations for a long time and this it was becoming very expensive and time consuming.
Having a very rare breed dog (Chinese Foo or Choo), I asked everyone who looked as though they had come from anywhere near where this breed originated, whether they knew anything about the breed and could they help find an appropriate Chinese name for him (I call him Kobe Xiao Xiong). And so it was that one day, while working part-time in a local store, I had the opportunity to meet a unique and very special man - Master Tam. Through him I became involved in VOVINAM.
It was not until recently that I got to know Master Tam even better and we have become like family. I discovered that he has been an acupuncturist for many decades and was very highly respected in Viet Nam for his knowledge before he came to America. When he volunteered to help me control the chronic pain with acupuncture, my immediate response was, “Sure, I will give it a try”. It is not easy to become completely comfortable with the idea of allowing someone to stick pins in your body. We usually try to avoid needles, don’t we? Do you ever try walking on nails, tacks or even sharp stones barefooted just to see how it feels? I certainly don’t!
It is well documented that many of our best medical treatments and cures come from the ancient arts of the use of herbs and procedures developed centuries ago in China and the Far East. Not only does Master Tam believe strongly in the use of acupuncture and its medical benefits, but as a pharmacist he is very familiar with herbs and the benefits gotten from ordinary plants you can buy cheaply in the grocery store. For example, the daily use of parsley can lower your cholesterol and blood pressure. Of course, most doctors are not going to tell you that.
As I lay on the bed while Master placed the needles in my body, he explained why he placed each one where he did. The first needle to be inserted was in the face near the ear to deaden the pain of the insertion of needles in other areas of they body. The needles are inserted deeper or not so deeply depending on what illness is being treated. They are twisted to the left for treatment of the illness and twisted to the right when the desired benefit is to give you a better sense of well-being.
One can use only a few for a very specific illness, or many. Today Master Tam used 17 needles which were used in combination for the relief from pain and healing in both my right knee and in my right shoulder. Others were used for weight loss. When the needles are placed for weight loss, three systems are influenced: 1) the kidneys - to increase the release of more toxins, 2) thedigestive system - to control the appetite and, 3) the nervous system - to reduce depression and stimulate more physical activity. His treatment for me is not complete without my turning “up-side-down” (over). Needles are then placed and turned in specific locations to relate to those placed earlier on the front side of my body.
As I lay on the bed I try to relax and not feel the pain of the needles. To help me relax in my mind I walk along a sea shore, hear the birds and the waves rushing against the beach. (OUCH! that hurts) With the sound of running water in the kitchen I am able to relax enough so that the pain of the needles nearly disappears and I allow my body to be stimulated to heal itself.
There are more than 360 main pressure points in one’s body!! The needles cannot be placed randomly, they must be placed very carefully and in the exactly correct spot to do any good. A practitioner of this ancient way of healing knows by a light touch of the skin where to exactly place the needles. not only can it hurt badly when incorrectly placed; one can become injured - indeed even paralyzed if care is not given to precise placement. Since Master Tam is a Master in VOVINAM Martial Arts and a practitioner of acupuncture for over 40 years, he only has to touch the skin in the area of insertion and he knows precisely where to place the needles for maximum benefit. Like the discipline and study required to become a Master in VOVINAM, acupuncture requires years of knowledge and use to become a trusted practitioner.
Before beginning with the needles Master Tam places heated gel packs behind my neck and under my ankles to stimulate better circulation. In the summer he uses cold or frozen packs to do the same. After the needles are withdraw, he places thinly sliced pieces of ginger over the my back and legs in the areas where the needle points were. On the ginger is a small ball of Artemisia Vulgaris (the leaves of a plant similar to the Chrysanthmum) mixed with Moschuh Muschiferus (this substance is taken from glands found in the lower abdomen of a small male mountain deer). This is lit with a lighter. As the acid malic gets hotter, the acid malic (which causes my muscle to make me feel fatigued) is drawn from my body. I can actually hear the thick sticky substance sizzle as it is drawn out of my body. When the heat is too great he moves the ginger to another location.
Next he massages my back with a specially prepared combination of oils. Some of the ingredients are Methyl Salicylate, Eucalyptus, Menthol and Peppermint. These oils continue to heal, relax and comfort all day as they turn into a powder on your skin.
If you are open to the idea of alternative (bypassing regular doctors and drugs) medicine, you have to have a strong belief that this is going to benefit you. If you go into it with the attitude that “it won’t work, but I will just give it a try” - guess what, it won’t work. However, if you are willing to try another method of healing open to the hope of it working - “I can do it and I will be happy with the results”, it will work. There is a lot about how our body works that I do not know or understand. But I do know that my attitude directly affects my health. A negative attitude causes frequent illness, constant fatigue and makes the pain so much more intense. On the other hand, a positive attitude of love, acceptance and giving to others has its own reward - good health and a deep lasting sense of well-being and contentment.
Yes, the pain in my body is diminishing. The swelling caused by the constant contraction of muscles around the point of pain is nearly gone. And I am also losing weight!! In addition, I am experiencing a higher level of energy and a much stronger sense of purpose and well-being. Has acupuncture alone done all of this? I don’t think so, but it has a lot to do with my healing process combined with the use of herbs and a strong positive attitude.
Perhaps the most important part of my treatment is the therapeutic touch of Master Tam. As he inserts the needles, he touches my skin. His touch is as soft as a butterfly’s wings or as light as the breath of a baby’s kiss. It is through this touch that he transfers part of his Chi or spiritual love to me. It is this touch which removes the pain of the prick of the needle, begins the healing of my physical body and energizes my inner spirit.
Where before I was very stress-out and fragmented, now there is a feeling of wholeness and working together of my mind, body and spirit.
