It is believed that the body retains cellular memory, remembering both physical and emotional trauma and/or pain. These emotions are stored in the body, and if left unresolved, can show up as aches, pain or dis-ease on the body.
Chi Nei Tsang (CNT)(气内脏) is a centuries-old variety of healing therapy from China. It focuses on systemic deep abdominal massage in order to “train” the internal abdominal organs to work more efficiently together. Some discomfort or transference of sensation is common during the session as the body goes into physical and emotional detoxification, which in turn is said to improve physical and emotional health.
Physically, CNT massage helps re-align the structure of abdominal organs, which stimulate the organs to work better, addressing long-time visceral imbalances. All of the body’s systems–digestive, respiratory, cardiovascular, lymphatic, nervous, endocrine, urinary, and reproductive are addressed in one session.
CNT massage techniques helps detoxify the body by reducing stagnation, increasing elimination, improving digestion, strengthening organ functions and encouraging lymphatic drainage. All emotion experienced needs to be processed on a physical level, and this is where discomfort can occur. Usually a series of treatments is required for different level of clearing.
Emotionally, CNT helps us get to the root of deep, emotional issues and traumas that often are hidden in the organs. During the massage, clients are encouraged to allow any emotions that surface to flow and letting it go even when we really don’t want to feel those emotions.
