CHI NEI TSANG

"A Detoxifying Massage For Emotional Release"

ABOUT

Chi Nei Tsang translates as ‘Internal Organs Chi Massage’. Chi means Energy or Life Force, similar to Prana in the yogic tradition. Chi Nei Tsang (CNT) was used by ancient Taoist sages who understood the importance of organ health. The organs hold physical space and form, providing structure to the body. They are said to contain life-force and the essences of spiritual energy. There is a link between the organs and emotions.

 

In the West, people are familiar with feeling love and happiness in the heart. In the Tao, there is a concept of yin and yang – positive and negative – so on the flip side we can also feel hatred, arrogance and impatience in the heart. Taoists attributed virtues and emotions to each of the organs. Thus our emotional stability is affected by our organ health and vice versa.

When stress prevails, the abdomen can become a common dumping ground for excess negative emotions and toxic energy. This causes a negative cycle of ill-health, sluggishness and a loss of vitality. The Taoist tradition emphasises the importance of the Tan Tien – the energy centre located around the navel – our first connection to the world. Chi Nei Tsang detoxes and revitalises this essential energy centre. Direct massage of the organs/organ pressure points and the abdomen and navel can alleviate the debilitating effects of stress, increase vitality, balance emotions and improve immunity and health.

The difference between CNT and other healing arts?

The difference is that compared to other massages or therapies  that treat other conditions like reiki, shiatsu, Swedish massage  chi nei tsang works on the stomach by focusing on the internal organs and the obstructions that prevent the energy to circulate in the body, the belief system being that the organs connect with the five forces of the universe  and provide a link between the human microcosm and the universal macrocosm, the organs containing the essences of the spiritual force of a human being.

The law of creation and control establishes relationships among the five phases of chi and their associated organs ,heart, lungs, kidneys, liver and spleen.

In the law of control if a an organ is to weak the organ that precedes in the cycle has to be strengthened ,similarly if an organ has to much energy you would take away some energy from the next organ in the cycle

In the law of control an organ is trying to overwhelm a weaker organ so another organ has to interfere  to prevent this similar to a family situations when the child is abused by the father and the uncle has to step in to prevent this.

 ​Benefits

Chi Nei Tsang treatments aim at clearing energy blockages within the abdominal, pelvic and thoracic area and in the actual internal organs, thereby improving the free and unobstructed flow of blood supply, internal energy, proper functioning of internal organs and vital functions, and emotional balance.

The treatment promotes better circulation of blood and other bodily fluids (important for internal distribution of oxygen, nutrition, hormones, and the like) and can solve excretory problems. Think about issues of numbness and tingling in the arms, hands, legs or feet, or gallstones, and urinary tract or prostate infections.

Other advantages may be the relief or elimination of digestive problems, such as so-called irritable bowel syndrome, bloating, and constipation. The treatment also eliminates toxins (detoxification) in the gastrointestinal tract and promotes overall lymphatic drainage, which in its turn can help boosting the immune system and better support the body to get rid of toxins.

On the pure physical awareness level, many pains, such as headaches, neck, back and muscle pains, and menstrual cramps can be alleviated or cured. Additionally, the treatment realigns the organs with a positive effect on overall posture and bodily performance.

On the emotional level, old traumas can be released. It’s believed that the cells of the body, especially those in the abdominal region, retain information (and reactions) to traumatic experiences. With work on those cells, that is – releasing tension, contractions, knots, and tangles, old negative and stagnant energy can finally leave the body at the same time giving emotional release and relief to the person.

CONDITIONS TREATED

Chi Nei Tsang can be of particular benefit to some of the more intractable contemporary problems, such as:

 

  • Sleep disorders

  • Digestive disorders involving the liver, gallbladder, kidneys, pancreas, etc.

  • Challenges to fertility

  • Nervous disorders such as anxiety and depression

  • Musculoskeletal problems of undetermined origin, and

  • Auto-immune disorders such as Lupus and chronic fatigue.

 

Additionally, Chi Nei Tsang can help to speed healing from injury or trauma, including obstetrical and surgical trauma.  

 

Again, Chi Nei Tsang does not attempt to treat symptoms or cure an illness; rather it is a system designed to precipitate change by bringing awareness to the internal organs of the body, thus inducing the body to heal. In that way, Chi Nei Tsang addresses every condition of a person, whether manifested physically, emotionally, or spiritually.

  • Improve elimination and stimulate the lymphatic and the circulatory systems. CNT is also said to strengthen the immune system. The CNT Institute claims that clients using CNT before and after surgery recover better and faster, but an online search of medical literature yielded no studies on the issue.

  • Correct postural problems and relieve tension.CNT is also used to treat chronic pain in the back, neck and shoulders as well as problems related to the misalignment of the feet, legs and pelvis.

  • Facilitate the “unfolding of emotions and the clarification of our emotional life.” The CNT Institute website states that this modality has been successfully used in combination with psychotherapy, but no studies documenting this claim turned up in a medical literature search.

  • Teach techniques to improve breathing and provide personalised nutritional guidance as well as instruction in visualisation and meditation that clients can do at home to enhance the effects of treatment.
