Abdominal Massage workshop
is an ancient form of detoxifying, energizing, abdominal massage. Chi Nei Tsang means “working with the energy of the internal organs”.
This gentle, deep and precise massage technique, centers mainly around the navel, and stimulates the body’s self healing mechanism. This ancient practice supports the major organs, which include liver, kidneys and heart, to function at their best. It allows detoxifying physically and emotionally.
Chi Nei Tsang Massage can help alleviate:
abdominal discomfort, stress, cramps, constipation, ovarian cysts, menstrual unease, surgical scars, indigestion, bloating, insomnia etc.
It blends Chinese massage, the knowledge of Chinese medicine and meditation techniques, making it truly different from any other healing modality.
The Taoist practitioners of ancient China observed that humans often develop energy blockages in their internal organs that result in knots and tangles in their abdomens. These obstructions occur at the center of the body’s vital functions and constrict the flow of Chi (energy), our life-force. The negative emotions of fear, anger, anxiety, depression, and worry cause the most damage. Problems can also be caused by overwork, stress, accidents, surgery, drugs, toxins, poor food, and bad posture.
More then 2000 years ago, through meditative practices these scientists learned to look within themselves.
They discovered the internal organs connect with the Five Forces of the Universe and provide a link between the human microcosm and the universal macrocosm.
The organs contain the essences of the spiritual force of a human being. They also provide the physical lines of force that hold the body together and give it structure.
When obstructed the internal organs store unhealthy energies that can overflow into other bodily systems and surface as negative emotions and sickness. Always in search of an outlet, these negative emotions and toxic energies create a perpetual cycle of negativity and stress. If the negative emotions can’t find an outlet, they fester in the organs or move into the abdomen, the body’s “garbage dump.” The abdomen can process some emotional garbage, but more often it can’t keep up with the flow. The energetic center of the body located at the navel becomes congested and cut off from the rest of the body.
Qi, the life-force energy, moves through the body’s internal channels, nervous system, blood vessels, and lymph glands. These systems concentrate and cross paths in the abdomen, which acts as their control center. Tensions, worries, and stresses of the day, month, or year accumulate and are seldom dispersed. ‘These disturbances can cause physical tangling and knotting of the nerves, blood vessels, and lymph nodes. The result is the gradual obstruction of energy circulation, which may lead to any number of maladies including, but not limited to, indigestion, constipation, bloating, insomnia, whole body toxicity, poor skin quality, and an inability to lose weight.
The ancient Taoists realized that negative emotions cause serious damage to one’s health,
impairing both physical and spiritual functions. They understood that each human emotion is an expression of energy and that certain emotions could indicate the negative energy behind many physical ailments. They also identified a specific cycle of relationships between the emotions and the organs. For example, the experience of a “knot” in one’s stomach indicated the presence of worry, the negative emotion that accumulates in the stomach and spleen.
