Whether you are new to massage or an experienced practitioner this training will open a new way of looking at and working with the body, energy, emotions and the physical organs. Integrated within the first part of the training are self care and energy management techniques so you start from a place of confidence and health connected to your inner wisdom.

Chi Nei Tsang is a powerful hands-on healing technique that balances the five major systems of the body:
Vascular, Lymphatic, Nervous, Muscular and Energy(Chi).

All these systems are connected to the abdominal centre, where unreleased stress and tension may cause obstructions. Through simple manipulations, we can release physical, emotional, and mental resistance that can cause illness.

Learn Five Element body diagnosis and how to transmit healing energy to others without depleting your energy. This powerful practice is long-lasting and can be used for self-healing.
