The friendly way to flush out your system. Forget funky tasting wheatgrass shots, protein shakes and tubes in odd places, Chi Nei Tsang (CNT) is the holistic way to detoxify and strengthen your body. Based on the healing touch modality of old Taoist Chinese religion, CNT will have your insides working and feeling as good as you look on the outside - maybe even more so.
One too many bottles of wine or that last mouthful of take-away can have you feeling somewhat squeamish the next day, in the same way work and family problems can take their toll giving you that nasty 'sick to your stomach' feeling. More often than not, people blame it on self-neglect and a lack of TLC, but a bout of CNT might help you on your way to create a better balance in mind, body and spirit.
A massage technique for the abdomen and internal organs, CNT aims to re-establish well being and happiness by relaxing the belly. Using deep tissue massage techniques around the naval to expel tension, stagnation, toxins and negativities stored around the stomach, your circulatory system will be flushed out and your lymphatic system successfully drained. Your therapist will then focus on the organs themselves (don't panic, it is all done without opening you up), or wherever knots and lumps are felt.
An entire system of Chinese healing that increases the energy flow of the major systems in the body including the digestive, respiratory, cardio-vascular, lymphatic, nervous, reproductive, muscular-skeletal, and the acupuncture meridian system - the process can occasionally be uncomfortable, but is often life changing. It also uses meditation techniques such as guided deep breathing during the massage to aid in the detoxification and transformation process.
If you're looking for an alternative detox method, CNT will suit you. Helping relieve the body of excess stagnation, improving elimination and stimulating the lymphatic and the circulatory systems, CNT strengthens the immune system and resistance to diseases.
If you're suffering from deep-seated tensions and want your vitality restored, CNT can also be useful for stress management and health maintenance. All our unprocessed emotional life is stored in our digestive system and CNT facilitates the unfolding of emotions and clarification of our emotional life.
In addition, CNT works to address your muscles, glands and positioning of internal organs too, stimulating them to work better. In this way CNT can help correct problems such as chronic abdominal, back, hip, and shoulder pain. Headaches, menstrual cramps, sciatica, fibroids, hiatal hernias, infertility, impotence and prostate problems are also on the check list of health benefits, and if you’re on the waiting list for surgery, CNT might even be recommended post-treatment, as the practise has been said to improve patients’ recovery time.
CNT was first used by monks in Taoist China, thousands of years ago to help them detoxify, strengthen and refine their bodies in order to maintain the high energy required to perform the highest levels of spiritual practices.
