where there's a will, there's a way



I built this website with the intention of sharing what I have learned and my own point of view on mental illnesses with parents of mentally challenged children around the world.

My name is Tien Le. I have actively done research on autism by myself for several years with the hope that some day I could find an effective treatment for autism to help my loved one. I am not a medical doctor. I am an electrical engineer. I have been working in the semiconductor field since 1996. I have a BS degree in physics and MS/BS degrees in electrical engineering.

I have gone through various kinds of therapy for autism such as speech therapy, occupational therapy, physical therapy, casein free gluten free diet (CFGF), etc. for the past several years. In December 2007, I accidentally found one special kind of massage therapy which I consider a very effective and safe therapy for autism as well as for other mental illnesses. That is called Neuro Reflex Therapy (NRT). NRT is a massage technique with the use of hands and a few simple tools such as acupressure rollers, a small reflex hammer ... Not like acupuncture, NRT is not in the mainstream of today medical practice. Currently, there's only one office in Houston, Texas that offers NRT. I wondered why these simple and non-invasive massage techniques could be so effective in improving autistic symptoms and why not many people knew about it. I started a new journey to find the answer for it. I hope my explanation will give you the insight of NRT. I also hope that you and your loved ones will benefit from it just like I did.
