Several years ago, I discovered Chi Nei Tsang when I was seeking an alternative healing method to treating a uterine fibroid tumor in my body. The tumor was quite large and caused stiffness and pain because of the pressure it exerted on my lower back. I had no previous knowledge about Chi Nei Tsang, but decided to book a session with a practitioner. As the Chi Nei Tsang practitioner touched my belly, I felt immediate relief from pain around the tumor and on my lower back. I was elated with the results and decided to become a ChI Nei Tsang practitioner.
Chi Nei Tsang or internal organ massage is a holistic healing technique created by Buddhist monks in ancient China. These Taoist sages discovered that the key to staying healthy lies in the abdomen. Chi Nei Tsang was founded on the principles of the Five Elements of Traditional Chinese Medicine and is also known as “Applied Chi Kung/Qi Gong”.
In today’s fast-paced world, Chi Nei Tsang is an effective way to clear toxins that affect the physical and emotional body. Factors such as stress, poor diet, lack of exercise and bad posture can affect the quality of chi or qi and cause it to stagnate. Stagnant chi can cause knots, tangles and obstructions to form in the abdomen, which, if left untreated, can lead to pain and disease. Therefore, free-flowing chi is essential for maintaining optimal health.
Chi Nei Tsang doesn’t treat symptoms, but directly accesses the root of the problem. Chi Nei Tsang can be used to complement Western Medicine and is safe for pregnant women as well.
There are numerous health benefits to receiving Chi Nei Tsang including:
My goal as a Chi Nei Tsang practitioner is to aid my clients in bringing greater self-awareness and intuition to them about where they are holding tension in their belly and gently releasing it.
Chi Nei Tsang bridges the gap between the body, mind and spirit.
"Emotional digestion is just as natural of a phenomenon as breathing or digesting food. Like breath or digestion, it usually remains unconscious. However, if we pay attention to our breathing, it is a natural phenomenon for us to improve it. Also, being conscious of our digestion allows us to improve our diet. Similar to breathing and digesting, our consciousness is able to aid the performance of emotional digestion. This is done through the body’s intelligence, which does not require thinking. Healing is a natural process, not an academic one."
