Chi Nei Tsang

Chi = energy and information
Nei Tsang = viscera or internal organs
Literally translated into “transforming the energy of the internal organs,” or “transforming the visceral attitude.”

Chi Nei Tsang (CNT) practitioners work mainly on the abdomen with deep, soft and gentle touch that trains internal organs to work more efficiently.

All the body systems are addressed: digestion, respiration, lymphatic, nervous, endocrine, urinary, reproductive, integumentary and skeletal-muscular. As well as the energy system commonly used in acupuncture.

CNT’s power lies in working from the center toward the outside by focusing on the abdomen and the navel area. The lower abdomen is the center of the body, the place from which breath and movement originate. It is the structural center of gravity and the center for metabolic processes such as digestion, detoxification and energy processing. It is called the Tan Tien in Traditional Chinese Medicine, and is the body’s center of energy.

Chi Nei Tsang Works in Four Major Ways:

  • Detoxifying – Helps clear stagnation. Improves elimination, stimulates the lymphatic and circulatory systems, and strengthens the immune system’s resistance to diseases.
  • Restructuring and strengthening – By addressing the visceral structures, CNT corrects postural problems resulting from visceral imbalances and congestion in the structural pattern of fascia. It releases deep-seated tensions and restores vitality.
  • Balancing Emotions – Unprocessed emotions are stored in the digestive system waiting to be addressed. Poor emotional digestion is one o the main reasons for ill health.
  • Self-Awareness – Each of us responsible for our own health. Self work, meditation, visualization, breath are all included in this class.
