Summary of effects of Chi Nei Tsang
in one practice
(independent medical diagnosis)
Chi Nei Tsang also known as Taoist Massage or Hara-Shiatsu
combines well with other forms of healing and bodywork, but you don't have
to be a therapist to get started!
You will also benefit
by understanding the theory and to satisfy a distinctive requirement of
a Chi Nei Tsang practitioner: the ability to look after oneself and manage your own
energy-field to avoid depletion or contamination.
The CNT Level 1 Year-long Practitioner Training Program
"This is a deep, powerful and effective therapy: our year-long training ensures you receive good, thorough instruction and
proper grounding. Nothing is skimped, everything is rigorously tested. When you qualify, you will be, deservedly,
fit to practice. You will be proud to have done it properly, and I will be proud to have trained you." Kris Deva North, Senior Teacher since 1994 and Founder of the London Chi Nei Tsang Institute.
The Chi Nei Tsang practitioner applies techniques to de-stress and energise the whole body-mind, through the organs where we feel our emotions.
This unique holistic massage releases tension, helps detoxification, promotes a healthy flow of energy through the meridians of Chinese medicine (like acupuncture but without the needles!) and has been known to help with relieving symptoms, easing aches and pains, and general maintenance of health and vitality - you don't have to be ill to feel better!
You learn to help others, and it also works for D-I-Y.

Kris's Article on Chi Nei Tsang published in Positive Health magazine
Taoist Massage or Chi Nei Tsang (also known as Organ Energy Transformation) is a form of
Hara Shiatsu, an entire system of Taoist deep healing that works with the energy-flow of
five major systems: energy-meridian, fasciae-tendon-muscular, nervous, vascular and lymphatic.
The navel area, the centre where all systems meet, connects - or separates - our upper
and lower parts, left and right, front and back, inner and outer, mind and body - we feel
our emotions here, causing internal blockage and distortions which often manifest as symptoms
Experiment: grab a handful of material of the clothes you are wearing, around the navel
area, and twist. Feel where the tension goes. See where the material distorts - what is the
most distal point? Imagine the turmoil inside, when just the surface tension is so dramatic -
Even after we have mentally resolved the emotion, the physical effects can still leave
knots, tangles, and congestion. When obstructed the internal organs store unhealthy energies
than can seep into other systems. In search of an outlet these toxic energies create a cycle
of negativity and stress, festering in the organs and overflowing into the abdomen, the bodys
garbage dump. The energetic centre at the navel becomes congested and cut off from the rest of
Experiment: sitting upright, relax so the abdomen is soft. Place the tip of your middle
finger in your navel. Gently, and very slowly, keeping the finger rigid, push inwards towards
your spine. How far can you comfortably go? When the finger can penetrate to the front of the
spine, without pain, you are clear, free of the physical residue of long-past emotions.
Chi Nei Tsang can help resolve the aftermath of emotional trauma and its physical residue,
freeing abdominal blockages and projecting healing energy throughout the entire bodymind.
Kris's Personal Testimonial: I have been involved in healing practices and meditation
since 1972, experienced treatments by acupuncture, herbs, reiki and many different forms of
bodywork all over the world, am a qualified practitioner of acupressure, Swedish and Thai
massage, and a registered Shiatsu teacher and teacher trainer. In my own experience Chi Nei
Tsang is powerful healing medicine, used on its own or to enhance many other therapies
in its power for transformational change.
