CHI NEI TSANG “Energy Work for Internal Organs”
Chi Nei Tsang is abdominal work. The abdomen, the navel, is where each of us originated. Embryologically we developed off of the navel and grew outwards from there, all our systems. Working on the abdomen influences the whole body. People can experience a wide array of benefits from postural to emotional clearing to detoxing, but the work is directed at an over-all balancing versus treating a specific condition. Clearing the abdomen is like dropping a stone in a pond…it radiates out throughout the rest of the body. It is our energy center; what in China they call the Dan Tien, our “Sea of Qi”. When that is cleared, the body transforms.
- Chi Nei Tsang detoxifies. Removes stagnation. Improves elimination. Stimulate lymph and vascualar circulation. Strengthens the immune system.
- Chi Nei Tsang by softening tissue and reducing adhesions in the abdominal tissue can support better organ alignment and functioning of the organs. This in turn improves postural alignment.
- Chi Nei Tsang is an ancient Taoist tradition from the remote mountains of China. Monks used it to detoxify, strengthen and refine their bodies for spiritual practice.
- Abdominal massage and self massage, breath work, visualizations and energizations, if used consistently to process old emotions is a great support to counseling.
The abdomen is where people often hold a great deal of tension physically but also emotionally. Releasing tension in the abdomen tends to release “undigested” emotions which is a key element in disease.
In Western culture, the abdomen is much ignored, yet it holds our core emotions and physical patterning. Through abdominal massage, breath work, meditations and energizations, this work is about bringing one’s awareness and life energy to one’s body- being and connecting with the life energy that supports us. From that awareness, the body begins its healing process.
A strong component of CNT is learning massage on one’s own abdomen as well as learning supportive meditations and energizations such as Buddha Palms. Ask Corinne about Buddha Palms DVDs and Bone Dreaming CD.
Corinne leads small groups of Qi Gong and can lead Buddha Palms. See Classes.
We believe as the name Abintra indicates by definition “Healing Comes Within”. These tools allow you to take greater responsibility for your health, cultivate your own energy, detoxify, process stagnant energy and live life with more vitality.

Corinne was taught this work by Gilles Marin through the Chi Nei Tsang Institute.
