About NBE Therapy
Our alternative medicine therapy provides relief for over 90% of our patients with a wide variety of ailments with their very first treatment.
Conventional medicine treats the symptoms rather than the underlying cause, creating a vicious cycle of drug consumptions and unnecessary surgeries. Drugs only deteriorate your health, as they are masking your symptoms. However, with Neuro-BioEnergetics (NBE) therapy, the focus is restoring your health and resolving the cause of your health problems, all with NO drugs and NO surgery.
Neuro-BioEnergetics adopts the ideologies of Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM), which focuses on the study of qi, a healing energy from our mind and spirit that is required to sustain health. Qi flows through meridians, which are a network of channels interconnected throughout the body. Stress, poor diet, and chemical drugs all cause blockages which prevent qi from circulating throughout our body, resulting in disorders and ailments. Dr. Tong discovered that improving qi flow increases tissue warmth, opening capillary circulation to allow blood to supply tissues with nutrients.
NBE therapy is able to clear up all the blockages in the meridians by combining acupuncture with nerve block injections. These injections, consisting of saline solution, as found in IVs, and Marcaine, an anesthetic commonly used in dentistry, increase the flux of qi, thereby increasing blood circulation and improving overall health. It is harmless.
Most of our patients have exhausted other therapies for years, or even decades, but were able to get dramatic relief with their very first NBE treatment!
Meet Yee Wing Tong, MD
Dr. Tong was born in China and immigrated to the United States in 1962. He initially studied physics at California Institute of Technology before deciding to pursue a medical career at USC School of Medicine specializing in anesthesia. During his studies, Dr. Tong discovered the flaw of modern-day allopathic medicine: drugs merely mask symptoms, rather than cure diseases. More importantly, all drugs have side effects which can be deadly with long-term use.
While practicing surgical anesthesia, he also treated chronic pain with anesthetic blocks and acupuncture, a therapy he calls Neuro-BioEnergetics or NBE. His results were so remarkable that he decided to investigate the reality of qi — the basis of Chinese medicine. He started practicing qigong (qi exercise). He discovered that qi is the energy of our mind/spirit that governs blood cells to heal disorders to maintain health.
Moreover, he had learned to emit to treat disorders, and became severely ill from draining his life energy. After seeking help from other practitioners to no avail, he began treating himself and eventually restored most of his health. The experience of 25 years of self-therapies and over 30 years of clinical practice are the reasons for his unparalleled treatment results.
Meet Elain Tong, DO
Dr. Elain was born in Pasadena, CA. She is a primary care physician and also treats patients with NBE therapy. Her interest in medicine began at a young age, after suffering multiple ankle injuries from years of practicing ballet. Her injuries were successfully treated by her father (Yee Wing Tong, MD) with NBE therapy, which allowed her to continue dancing, performing, and competing. When she was 15, her father taught her the NBE technique to help treat his own chronic illnesses. It was these experiences that led her to pursue a career in medicine. Dr. Elain graduated from UCLA with a major in Psychobiology and a minor in Classical Civilization, and then went on to study Chinese Medicine for two years at Samra University in Los Angeles. She received her medical degree from Western University of Health Sciences, College of Osteopathic Medicine of the Pacific in 2005 and completed her Residency in Family Medicine at Pacific Hospital of Long Beach in 2008. She is board certified with the American Osteopathic Board of Family Medicine.
During medical school, Dr. Elain helped her father treat his patients through his clinic while finishing her rotations. By the time she began her residency program, she was successfully treating pain, as well as non-pain disorders, with NBE therapy. She joined Dr. Tong in his practice full time in July 2008 and has incorporated herbs, homeopathy, nutrition, fitness, nutraceuticals and stress management to enhance treatment results and maintain good health.
In 2015, Dr. Elain started a health and wellness blog to give practical tips for everyday living. To read more, please visit doctorelain.com.
