Abdominal Detox Massage or Chi Nei Tsang
Abdominal detox massage, or Chi Nei Tsang, is particularly useful in releasing tension that is held in the area of the internal organs.
“These systems [nervous system, blood vessels, lymph glands] concentrate and cross paths in the abdomen, which act as their control center. Tensions, worries, and stresses of the day, month, or year accumulate there and are seldom dispersed. These disturbances can cause physical tangling and knotting of the nerves, blood vessels, and lymph nodes. The result is the gradual obstruction of energy circulation”. Mantak Chia
In other words stress, worry, critic, anger, fear, shock… are stored in the belly and consequently the rest of the organism is affected.
The abdominal massage is useful in releasing cramps, knots, scars, accidents, back pain and other imbalances. Internal organs massage makes us feel vulnerable: it is like opening a dark and painful place. The emotions that are held deep in there need to be released and experience a feeling of freedom and lightness.
By receiving Chi Nei Tsang one can energize, strengthen and detoxify the internal organ system and feel a new openness in the belly, mind and heart.
