What Is Chi Nei Tsang?

(continued from previous page)


Chi Nei Tsang - Chi Kung - Qigong healing - abdominal massage


Chi Nei Tsang came into being millennia ago in the mountain ranges of Taoist China. It was used by monks in monasteries to help detoxify, strengthen and refine their bodies in order to maintain the high energy required to perform the highest levels of spiritual practices.


Chi Nei Tsang helps you heal from within, on all levels: structural, metabolic, mental, emotional, spiritual.

The philosophy of healing and the Taoist meditations that go along with this modality do not conflict with one's own religion. It works with them, as it works to only strengthen one's self. It doesn't work against anything; it only works in support of the person. Therefore it only enhances one's religious and spiritual beliefs, feelings and practices.

Today Chi Nei Tsang (CNT) is mainly used for five reasons:


1 - Chi Nei Tsang helps you access and connect with the root causes of long term issues and diseases. It is only from here that true healing can happen. It gets to the origins of the physical and emotional aspects, where we can then process, digest, and ultimately outgrow and leave behind maladies.


2 - Chi Nei Tsang helps to restructure and strengthen the body: because it addresses the visceral structures and positioning of internal organs, CNT stimulates them to work better and also helps correct the postural problems resulting from visceral imbalances. It releases deep-seated tensions and restores vitality. CNT has been helpful with chronic pains such as back, neck and shoulder pains and problems related to misalignment of the feet, legs and pelvis.

3 - Chi Nei Tsang detoxifies: CNT manipulations help relieve the body of excess stagnation, improving elimination and stimulating the lymphatic and the circulatory systems. CNT also strengthens the immune system and resistance to diseases. In doing so, CNT augments other health care modalities with optimal results. (Clients using CNT before and after surgery recover better and faster.


4 - CNT helps practitioners and clients to deal better with their emotional life: all of our unprocessed emotional life is stored in our digestive system waiting to be addressed. Poor emotional digestion is also one of the main reasons for ill health. CNT facilitates the unfolding of emotions and the clarification of our emotional life. This makes it possible for us to evolve and grow in the direction of our better self. CNT has also been successfully used in combination with psychotherapy.


5 - CNT teaches clients to know themselves better: at the Chi Nei Tsang Institute, we believe that we are all responsible for our own health and that healing comes from within. We teach you techniques to improve your breathing as well as fundamental self-help techniques. We also provide: guidance in personalizing your diet and other health-related lifestyle matters, and specific and relevant visualization and meditation practices to further enhance the effect of manual treatments.
