Chi means energy and information, and nei tsang means viscera or internal organs. Chi nei tsang addresses the origin of health problems, including psychosomatic responses, and increases the resilience of the body’s defense system. A chi nei tsang treatment may be self-administered or given by a practitioner. Chi nei tsang practitioners work mainly on the abdomen with deep, soft, and gentle touch to train internal organs to work more efficiently. All the body systems are addressed—digestive, respiratory, lymphatic, nervous, endocrine, urinary, reproductive, etc. Chi nei tsang integrates applied qigong with the art of abdominal massage. This technique was created by a Taoist monk several thousand years ago in the mountain monasteries of China. In order for the monks to be able to learn to perform the highest levels of spiritual practices, they needed to generate a very high level of energy.
Chi Nei Tsang
A good massage will activate a deep state of relaxation and well being throughout the whole body. It is my hope to facilitate a pain free, balanced state of being for each client. I use an integrated and compassionate approach that combines over fifteen years of professional experience.
My massage interest and studies began early in the 1980s, when I was a founding member of Twin Lakes College of the Healing Arts in Santa Cruz. As a Certified Massage Therapist my bodywork experience over the past 30 years has included Swedish Massage, Polarity Therapy, Jin Shin Do Acupressure, Shiatsu, Lohan, Chi Nei Tsang, Reiki Energy Healing, and Reflexology, as well as studies in aromatherapy, nutrition, herbs and natural health care.
