Chi Nei Tsang: belly massage


Massages neither therapeutic nor medicalized without any erotic character, respecting the modesty of the person massaged.

Often not well approached with depth and precision, the belly is at the center of energy exchanges, body fluids and the maintenance of the balance of health. The quality of touch is of fundamental importance in this work.

 

The belly is designated in Chinese medicine as the second brain of our body. The Taoists consider it the seat of our emotions. Chi Nei Tsang, derived from Qi Qong, is a belly massage technique that aims to release concentrated negative energies in the abdomen and to harmonize emotions.

 

"I have a knotted stomach"; "I was breathless"; "I get bile," "I have the ball in the stomach" but also "I have butterflies in the belly" ... These expressions are nothing trivial. Emotions, both positive and negative, are rooted in the abdomen, and have an obvious influence on our physical state. Chi Nei Tsang (literally energy of the internal organs) is a massage which is based on the five major systems of the body: vascular, lymphatic, nervous, muscular and energetic.

 

Invented by the Taoist spiritual master Mantak Chia, the Chi Nei Tsang consists in clearing and releasing the "perverse energies trapped in the body". These perverse energies or "winds" can weaken the nervous system and internal organs and disrupt emotional energy. In Taoist philosophy, we learn to "recycle waste" by isolating them from each other, and get rid of them before they come to "pollute" the brain.

 

These negative emotions are distributed in the different organs of the abdomen: worries and fear are lodged in the spleen, pancreas and stomach. Sadness and depression are nested in the lungs. Fears, phobias and trauma hide in the kidneys, and finally jealousy, frustration and anger in the liver.

 

During a session of Chi Nei Tsang, the practitioner will apply to release these negative energies, but also and especially to practice a "rebalancing" of these emotions, which are inseparable from their "positive" pendants: concerns / receptivity , sadness / courage, fear / calm, etc ...
