In Chinese, it literally means “working the energy of the internal organs” or “internal organs chi transformation.”
About Chi Nei Tsang
The practice of Chi Nei Tsang massage comes from the ancient Chinese Taoist knowledge and tradition. The treatment focuses on a set of acupressure points around the navel is used to open the flow of energy as well as blood and lymph circulation in the abdomen. The often chronically contracted abdominal muscles and ligaments get released through gentle rocking, stretching, and shaking. This allows the process of breathing to engage the abdomen so that internal organs are prompted to work more efficiently. It can be seen as a form of “applied qigong.”
