Chi Nei Tsang is a vital practice to enhance fertility thatTaoist Sages have practiced for thousands of years. This practice was used by monks in China to help detoxify and strengthen their immune system in order to maintain high levels of energy. This is a form of abdominal massage literally translated to “transforming the energy of the internal organs.” Quite like a hara accessment in a shiatsu treatment, the abdomen is a useful tool in diagnosis as we palpate sections of the abdomen, representative of the visceral organs.
This massage can help break up stagnation, improve elimination and stimulate the lymphatic and circulatory systems. Chi Nei Tsang can also help with chronic back and shoulder pain related to misalignments of the feet, legs and pelvis. According to the Chi Nei Tsang Institute, Chi Nei Tsang does not attempt to treat symptoms or cure illness; rather it is a system designed to precipitate change by bringing awareness to the internal organs of the body, thus inducing the body to heal. In that way, there is no condition of the person, whether manifested physically, emotionally, or spiritually that is not addressed by Chi Nei Tsang.
Chi Nei Tsang is found to specifically benefit:
Chi Nei Tsang sessions may be added to your acupuncture session or done separately as its own therapeutic treatment. Jenny Perzichilli L.Ac., MSTCM performs these sessions within Sage Wellness.
