WHAT IS CHI NEI-TSANG
Not just a tummy rub! Its Something else...
An Ancient Science of Rejuvenation!
Chi Nei Tsang is an Ancient Taoist and Thai form of Abdominal Massage, that has been used as a healing practice thought to be over Two Thousand years!
The practice was initially thought to be developed by the White Cloud Taoist Monks in China. As well as, a traditional Thai Massage. Which was later refined by Mantak Chia.
Chi Nei-Tsang goes straight to the source!
who needs it ? in my, opinion everyone can benefit!
Tense muscles, Tension and stress, emotional imbalances, low energy levels, sleep disturbances, and much more is often a result of stagnation of chi or built-up emotions in the organs and surrounding tissues!
After a session of Chi Nei Tsang the improved abdominal circulation and energy flow can greatly improve and assist with weight loss, digestive disorders such as constipation, IBD, CHRONS, Nutritional mal-absorption, insulin regulation, GERD/GORD, Gallstone prevention, fertility problems, 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 and reduce scar tissue from injury or trauma, or surgical intervention after the acute healing phase has passed.
Chi Nei Tsang ultimately gives your body and organs a helping hand and energetic boost, so it can get to work on regenerating!
Ever felt a gut feeling about something?
This may because there are an estimated 200-600 million neurons, including 20 different types of neurons in the abdomen! The enteric nervous system is a large and complex part of the peripheral nervous system that is still being understood.
It is known, that it regulates many of the body's functions such as digestion, immune system, hormonal regulation, and metabolic functions. New evidence is emerging that there is a large communication system connected to the brain by the vagus nerve.
According to Mantak Chia, this information has been known to Taoist Monks for millennia.
Taoists believe we have 3 main centers from where we function. The Brain, The Heart, and the dan-tien or abdomen!
Just by coincidence, these are the first 3 organs to develop when we are a fetus!
As we experience the ups and downs in life it is thought that each emotion is linked to different organs to be processed.
There are many different sayings in our common language that correspond to this eg: A broken heart, follow your heart, butterflies in your stomach, chopped liver, kidney buster, to the bone the list goes on...
The Taoist teachings explain that when emotions are unprocessed or not recycled into positive emotions, it causes stagnation of chi or stress to the organs. In turn, this reduces the circulation of chi and can restrict blood flow to the area.
This is can be linked to imbalances and follow-on with adverse health problems or disease, through the processes of inflammation and stress.
There is ongoing research on how stress and inflammation is directly linked to disease or illness.
Even from my own observations from working as a nurse for over 7 years.
I have noticed certain negative emotional traits directly linked to specific organs and tissues of the human body!
