About The Teacher

Dr. Mark W. Tong is the founder of Healing International and creator of Crystal Bay Hotel, the “Healing Hotel”- author, lecturer, and a leading expert in incorporating the “Mind” and “Spirit” in healing.

His book, Prevent Cancer with Mind & Spirit, not only empowers his readers to maintain their own wellness, but also enables others to share this powerful message with friends and family to protect their health as well.

“Your health and wellness is not conditioned on any outside factors such as doctors, “modern medicine,” or health care program. You already have the power to maintain wellness within you and this approach gives you insight to unleash that power for wellness and healing.”

​After working three years at an alternative outpatient cancer facility, he saw the need to create an all-inclusive healing environment where guests can experience spiritual counseling, healing and lifestyle coaching along with proper diet and detoxification.
