The art of helping people heal themselves, get rid of pain, and bring back radiant health by reconciling self, soul and spirit while triggering emotional processing. 


This is done through a traditional Taoist monastic healing practice called CHI NEI TSANG, which works with deep and gentle ABDOMINAL TOUCH to enhance health and vitality of the internal organs.



"Excellent course, very clear teaching, easy to understand. Lots of hand-on learning. Great learning environment... Can’t say enough good things about the experience, highly recommended!"

- Katharina, Spring 2023

"Everyone took such good care of us - making sure we got to the retreat, enabling us to have a play day, making sure we were comfortable! The information was, as always, inspiring."

- Donna, Spring 2023


"It was an eye opening class. I loved that we focused on feeling and listening to our body to deepen what we learned about the philosophy and ideas behind Chi Nei Tsang."


"Just the right mix of learning/listening and hands-on experience. Divinely interesting, fun and plenty of opportunity to interact with the other students. Looking forward to the next workshop. The facilitators were extremely knowledgeable and willing to share, talk about their experience and give practical guidance."

"Chi Nei Tsang/TaoTouch is the finest, most powerful healing modality in the world, period. Gilles Marin has remarkably taken it to a whole new level. In my opinion, he is by far the best, the number one master practitioner/teacher of Chi Nei Tsang in the world. Chi Nei Tsang in itself is so powerful that indigenous peoples, Hawaiians, have told me 'This is the abdominal work we have lost'. I believe Gilles has taken Chi Nei Tsang to a whole new level, a truly life changing and world changing level. In addition, he is a delightfully inspiring human being!"

"Amazingly transformational!"
