Abdominal massage is perhaps one of the most profound forms of treatment because the majority of physical and emotional imbalances are stored in the abdomen. Almost all energy lines and physical communications systems (blood, lymph, nerves) of the body pass through the abdomen, which becomes a "dumping ground" for any stagnant energy. Abdominal massage treats physical ailments associated with all internal organs, is proven to have incredible healing effects physically, emotionally and spirtually.
The massage focuses on internal organs, circulation, lymphatic system, muscular system, and meridians to balance mental, emotional, and physical energy.
Chi, the life-force energy, moves through the body’s internal channels, nervous system, blood vessels, and lymph glands. These systems concentrate and cross paths in the abdomen which acts as their control centre. Tensions, worries, and stress of the day, month, or year accumulate there and are seldom dispersed. Such disturbances can cause physical tangling and knotting of the nerves, blood vessels, and lymph nodes leading to a gradual obstruction of energy circulation.
The Chi Nei tsang treatment takes place directly at the source of energy and therefore has a very deep and intense effect.
It is important to remember that healing is a two way path. Like any therapy, a patient must work together with his or her therapist to achieve the maximum healing: therefore some meditation techniques and qi gong exercises will be provided after each session for a patient to do afterwards.
