What is Chi Nei Tsang?  Chi Nei Tsang is Taoist abdominal massage designed to provide deep healing by working directly on internal restrictions and energy blocks. Literally meaning, "internal organ chi transformation" or "changing the energy in the viscera", Chi Nei Tsang promotes physical, mental and emotional well being.  The historical roots of CNT are lost in the mist of time, however this treatment is now found on the menu of many leading spas around the world . Science has now caught up to how gut health affects overall health.

Chi Nei Tsang works mainly on the abdomen, training the organs to work more efficiently. Treatments affect all the vital systems of the body; digestive, respiratory, lymphatic, nervous, endocrine, urinary, reproductive, fascial and muscular.

CNT treatments can assist the body to detoxify and relieves the body of excess stagnation. Treatments also improve elimination and stimulate the lymphatic and circulatory system. This strengthens the immune system and resistance to diseases.

Chi Nei Tsang helps to restructure and strengthen the body by working on the fascia and viscera, which allows more freedom of movement for internal organs. This stimulates the organs to work better and helps to correct postural problems resulting from visceral imbalances, releasing deep seated tensions restores vitality.

What to Bring: Fitted sheet and bolster. Wear comfortable clothing as you will stay clothed on the table, with only your abdomen exposed. No oils are used in Chi Nei Tsang treatments. A facemask (disposable surgical mask or N95/KN95 respirator), eye protection and clothing protection (apron, smock, labcoat or 2 sets of scrubs) are required.
