Developed by the White Cloud Taoist Monks in ancient China, Chi Nei Tsang is a holistic approach to the healing touch modality. It integrates the physical, mental, emotional and spiritual aspects of our being. Chi Nei Tsang literally means “working the energy of the internal organs” or “internal organs chi transformation.” CNT uses all the principles of Kung-Fu and Tai Chi Chuan known as Chi-Kung; therefore, CNT is a form of “applied Chi Kung.”
Chi, the life-force energy, moves through the body’s internal channels, nervous system, blood vessels, and lymph glands. These systems concentrate and cross paths in the abdomen, which acts as their control center. Tensions, worries, and stresses of the day, month, or year accumulate and are seldom dispersed. ‘These disturbances can cause physical tangling and knotting of the nerves, blood vessels, and lymph nodes. The result is the gradual obstruction of energy circulation, which may lead to any number of ailments including, but not limited to, indigestion, constipation, bloating, insomnia, whole body toxicity, poor skin quality, and an inability to lose weight.
Overall, we can describe Chi Nei Tsang as an abdominal massage that works the internal organs to make the body work more efficiently. The belly is the missing link in massage therapy. All of our vital internal organs are located in this one strategic area of the body.
It is important. Potential benefits of a Chi Nei Tsang massage may include an enhanced self-esteem, increased energy levels, strengthening of the core, promoting digestion, correcting postural problems, improvement in breathing, releasing negative emotions, a reduction in tension, stimulating the lymphatic system, and improving your circulatory system.
