Chi Nei Tsang:
Chi Nei Tsang (CNT) is a technique of abdominal massage rooted in Taoism, traditional Chinese medicine, and Thai techniques of organ massage. CNT detoxifies and tonifies the internal organs, uncovers repressed emotions, and releases structural tensions.
CNT is based on the idea that the abdomen is the center for emotions (think of having “butterflies in your stomach” when nervous or feeling sick to your stomach when worried) and that the health of our organs and the health of our emotions are deeply connected in a reciprocal relationship. CNT practitioners are extensively trained to address the abdominal organs directly with gentle, sensitive touch to stimulate and refresh the functioning of the entire body. The work is done clothed on a mat or massage table. The client lies comfortably on their back with legs supported and the belly exposed. Clients often experience a deep sense of relaxation and connection with themselves on a physical and emotional level during and sometimes for days after a session.
CNT is also useful in addressing pain and blockages in the abdomen. Symptoms associated with Irritable Bowel Syndrome, colitis, and Crohn’s disease can be relieved. This work can also address stuck energy, “holding patterns”, bloating, poor digestion, back pain, sciatica, and sluggish lymph – boosting blood circulation and vitality to the organs.
CNT also offers post surgery treatment for scar tissue. CNT can greatly reduce and even eliminate painful menstrual cramps, shrink fibroids, relieve pain associated with endometriosis and improve fertility.
If modern Western medicine sees the human body on the level of a mechanism with individual parts that either work or don’t, traditional Chinese medicine perceives it as a system of energy flows. In such a system, good health is an optimal flow of energy through the body. In the modern West, we can appreciate that the perspective of traditional Chinese medicine reminds us that we are more than simply a collection of organs, and that well-being is more than fixing things when they’re “broken.”
Sessions for CNT are approx. 1.5 hrs and Include a soothing Thai herbal pack
Karsai Nei Tsang:
The Karsai Nei Tsang practitioner uses a sensitive touch with deep, direct pressure and small circular massage movements to dissolve the sedimentation in the circulatory system, release the toxicity in the sex organs, and assist the client in letting go of any past emotional blockages held in this area. Karsai Nei Tsang focuses on the blockages in the genital area, especially the blockages that take the form of sedimentation in the veins. Unlike Tantic body wotk, this practice is not to evoke pleasure, but to find the blockages and release them.
Our sexual organs play a major role in our physical, emotional and spiritual health. Because every part of the body is connected, tensions in one area have an affect on the rest of the body. This is also true for the genitals. When the genitals suffer from blockages, the jing chi (sexual chi) is not free to circulate through the body. The body is then deprived of this powerful healing energy. We need arousing, orgasmic energy for the healthy functioning of our bodies. When the blood flow becomes blocked with crystal like sedimentation or fatty deposits, the human sexual arousal response is greatly affected.
Karsai Nei Tsang addresses the common problems associated with our sexual organs, impotency, frequent and difficult urination, painful menstruation, painful scar tissue after giving birth, Cysts, Fibroids, painful intercourse and low sexual libido. It is also quite effective in alleviating lower back pain, improving the body’s alignment, strengthening the pelvic floor muscles and increasing general vitality. – Tao Garden- Master Mantak Chia
