Chi Nei Tsang or Thai Abdominal Chi and Internal Organs Massage is a healing massage modality combining traditional Chinese, Thai Massage and meditation techniques while focusing predominantly on the abdominal area.
The massage work is strongly based on the assumption that unresolved emotional issues are stored in the digestive system and that insufficient or poor “emotional digestion” is one of the main causes for a variety of illnesses.
Chi Nei Tsang treatments aim at clearing energy blockages within the abdominal area and the internal organs, thereby improving the free flow of internal energy, proper functioning of internal organs and vital functions, and emotional balance.
Other advantages are the possible relief of digestive problems, such as so-called irritable bowel syndrome, bloating, and constipation. The treatment also eliminates toxins in the gastrointestinal tract
while promoting lymphatic drainage.
Sessions are done with the receivers lying down (face up) on a massage table or a mat. Reveivers should wear comfortable clothes and can receive the treatment while being clothed or with direct touch of the abdominal area.
General contraindications for treatments are an active menstruation, pregnancy, fever, or an active cancer. It’s also advised not to eat in the 90 minutes before your session (drinking is no problem).
