Chi Nei Tsang 1 (4-days):  21-22 Oct & 2-3 Dec 2017
Taught by Leigh Blyth

Chi Nei Tsang I is a unique and highly effective form of bodywork that acts directly on the abdomen, vital organs and their associated emotions. It’s an ancient art that was widely practiced in China – especially in remote areas where doctors were rare. Hugely empowering, it can be used for the healing and health maintenance of both the self and others.

Using a blend of Thai and Chinese massage framed by Taoist philosophy, you will learn effective hands on techniques that will enable you to:

• Unravel and unwind the tensions of modern life in the intestines and organs
• Help the body expel accumulated toxins from food, drugs and the environment
• Relax the mind and body, relieving worry, stress, anxiety
• Restore energy flow – promoting natural healing and breathing
• Relieve aches, pains and digestive dysfunction

This course gives you the skills to treat someone using the techniques and principles
covered in Mantak Chia’s book Chi Nei Tsang I. It will also contribute valuable points, knowledge and experience to your Continuing Professional Development. It can be taken as a standalone course or as part of full practitioner training.

    • Wood phase – Liver and Gall Bladder
    • Fire Phase – Heart and Small Intestine

The course is expanded on in later courses and also given a whole new dimension if you choose to go on and study the Universal Healing Tao system to which CNT is intimately linked.

What is Chi Nei Tsang?

Mantak Chia Chi Nei Tsang Massage in LondonChi Nei Tsang is a blend of Thai and Chinese massage and ancient internal energy meditation techniques. A very direct, effective and unique form of bodywork which works directly on the abdomen, organs and their associated emotions. The abdomen contains our energetic and physical centre, an area sometimes referred to as our second brain, due to an abundance of brain cells in the area, the importance of this centre to our overall health cannot be overstated.

Modern life leads to an accumulation of toxins, emotions, twists and tangles in the abdomen. This accumulation may show up as digestive dysfunction, aches/pains, lack of energy, feelings of malaise, worry, stress or anxiety, in fact in too may ways to mention. Chi Nei Tsang unwinds the tensions, relaxes, detoxifies and generally restores natural energy flow to the area. The result is a much healthier system and a more relaxed body and mind.

A typical treatment lasts about 45 mins and generally focuses on the different layers of the abdomen although other areas of the body are also treated. Shallow and deep massage techniques are used and more subtle work takes place on the energy and emotional body. CNT can be combined with other bodywork systems as a shorter session after a treatment or integrated into the session. Loose comfortable clothing is recommended which allows access to the abdomen as some techniques work best directly on the skin and oil is sometimes used. People come for treatments with all manner of ailments, for pleasure, self development or as part of a weight loss or detox programme.

Unlike most massage treatments the treatment dynamic is also about education. The practitioner is not healing as such but awakening and working with the student’s natural healing ability. The student is taught along the way how to treat themselves. Therefore the power for future healing is in the hands of the client and the healing can continue long after the sessions finish.
