chi nei tsang level 1


A bit of history


The Causes of Sickness: 

  • Organ Obstructions and Congestion in  the Abdomen :  the Taoist sages of ancient China observed that humans  often develop energy blockages in their internal organs that result in  knots and tangles in their abdomens. 
  • These obstructions occur at the  center of the body’s vital functions and constrict the flow of Chi  (energy), our life-force.
  • The negative emotions of fear, anger, anxiety,  depression, and worry cause the most damage.
  • Problems can also be caused  by overwork, stress, accidents, surgery, drugs, toxins, poor food, and  bad posture. 

Through meditative practices the sages learned to look  within themselves.

They discovered the internal organs connect with the  Five Forces of the Universe and provide a link between the human  microcosm and the universal macrocosm.

 The organs contain the essences  of the spiritual force of a human being.  They also provide the physical lines of force that hold the  body together and give it structure. 

When obstructed the internal organs  store unhealthy energies that can overflow into other bodily systems  and surface as negative emotions and sickness.   Always in search of an outlet, these negative emotions and  toxic energies create a perpetual cycle of negativity and stress. If the  negative emotions can’t find an outlet, they fester in the organs or  move into the abdomen, the body’s “garbage dump.”

The abdomen can process some emotional garbage, but more  often it can’t keep up with the flow. The energetic center of the body  located at the navel becomes congested and cut off from the rest of the  body.

  1. Chi Nei Tsang: A Method to Clear Blocked Energy Chi (Qi).

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  center. Tensions, worries, and stresses of the day, month, or year  accumulate there and are seldom dispersed. These disturbances can cause  physical tangling and knotting of the nerves, blood vessels, and lymph  nodes. The result is the gradual obstruction of energy circulation.The  ancient Taoists realized that negative emotions cause serious damage to  one’s health, impairing both physical and spiritual functions. They  understood that each human emotion is an expression of energy and that  certain emotions could indicate the negative energy behind many physical  ailments. They also identified a specific cycle of relationships  between the emotions and the organs. For example, the experience of a  “knot” in one’s stomach indicated the presence of worry, the negative  emotion that accumulates in the stomach and spleen.

The Taoists discovered that most maladies could be healed  once the underlying toxins and negative forces were released from the  body. They developed the art of Chi Nei Tsang to recycle and transform  negative energies that obstruct the internal organs and cause knots in  the abdomen. Chi Nei Tsang clears out the toxins, bad emotions, and  excessive heat- or heat deficiencies-that cause the organs to  dysfunction.

  1. Chi Nei Tsang: A Complement to Other Disciplines as an art  and science, Chi Nei Tsang complements Reflexology, Psychology, Reiki,  Shiatsu, Swedish Massage, and similar therapies. However, unlike most  practices which use indirect methods to contact the internal organs, Chi  Nei Tsang directly addresses the internal organs with breath and  direction of chi. Chi Nei Tsang is also the most comprehensive approach  to energizing, strengthening, and detoxifying the internal system. It  clears out negative influences and is particularly useful in relieving  intestinal blockages, cramps, knots, lumps, scar tissue, headaches,  menstrual cramps, poor blood circulation, back pain, infertility,  impotence, and many other problems. Along with other disciplines, Chi  Nei Tsang may help to eliminate the need for surgery.
  2. The Tao and Chi Nei Tsang:  Other Taoist practices are useful for maintaining personal  energy. Meditations such as the Inner Smile, the Microcosmic Orbit, and  the Fusion of the Five Elements open channels and enable the flow of Chi  to energize and cleanse the organs. Exercises such as the Six Healing  Sounds prevent overheating and help to balance the internal system.

(For a review of these meditations, refer to Master Chia’s  books, Awaken Healing Light, Taoist Ways to Transform Stress into  Vitality, and Fusion of the Five Elements 1. In fact, the most  outstanding difference between a Chi Nei Tsang practitioner and those of  other healing arts is the daily practice of the Healing Tao  meditations. The meditations offer maximum physical and spiritual  protection for instructors and their students.

What Every Chi Nei Tsang Practitioner Should Know: 

Society  and religions throughout history have programmed people to give rather  than to receive. Common sense is therefore ignored, and egos are  gratified through self-denial beyond reasonable limits. Since the first  concern of the practitioner must always be his or her own health, a few  guidelines are offered. 

  1. Knowledge of the Human Body: Organs, Systems, and Tissues.It  is necessary to have a working knowledge of the internal organs and  their functions: the lymphatic, circulatory, and nervous systems, the  energy channels, the muscles and fasciae (connective tissues), and the  interrelationships among all of these facets of the body.
  2. Understanding Chi: Understanding vital Chi and being able to  distinguish the positive and negative qualities of it as a life-force  are of the utmost importance. Without a clear working knowledge of Chi,  the practitioners of healing arts have no means of protecting their own  bodies and energies from the negative influences of others.They also may  find themselves giving away more energy than they can spare. In time,  Chi Nei Tsang practitioners may find themselves suffering from  professional “burnout” because their own energies have been depleted.  Once this happens they may not be able to continue to provide relief for  others.
  3. Developing the Proper Attitude: The most important  requirement of Chi Nei Tsang is a proper attitude about yourself and  others. This means that the practitioner needs to realize a few  important facts. A practitioner should be aware that in seeking relief,  people go to a healer fully loaded with sick energy and sick  emotions.They expect to be able to unload all of their sicknesses onto  the healer, thereby negating their responsibilities for their own  healing. Initially, your ability to help people will gain their trust,  but it is important never to allow them to become dependent on you.

Learn to give them your attention, love, and care as you  teach them how to get back on their feet through their own efforts. This  means that you must teach them about their bodies and energetic  systems. Explain their responsibilities so that you won’t lose or  pollute your own life-force.

  1. Chi Nei Tsang Practitioners Educate Others to Heal  Themselves: Chi Nei Tsang practitioners do not simply apply techniques,  but are capable of generating and directing vital life-force through and  around others. The main role of the Chi Nei Tsang practitioner,  however, is educator not healer. The main philosophy and purpose of Chi  Nei Tsang is to teach people how to heal themselves by providing  insights into their own immense, internal healing powers. Chi Nei Tsang  practitioners, therefore, never refer to their students as “patients” or  “clients”. A student who has awakened his or her own healing energy can  continue the process by practicing at home and teaching family and  friends. One must always remember that the most important healing energy  comes from within oneself.
  2. The Secret of CNT: Healing from the Heart. The CNT  repertoire is full of brilliant and wonderful techniques that have the  potential to significantly alter the basic way we care for ourselves and  for each other. While the techniques are forceful and can relieve both  chronic and acute illnesses, they will not work effectively unless they  are activated and animated by a love and compassion that is given  sincerely and abundantly from your heart. Your fingers and hands can  become healing hands only when you are full of good intentions.When you  touch others, touch them with all the love, care, and compassion that  you can find within yourself. Connect yourself with the forces of the  Universe, and become a physical channel for these forces. Apply your  hands with the tenderness of a mother touching her child. If your touch  is from your center to theirs, they will open like the petals of a  flower in the morning sun.

Every life and body has a self-healing mechanism that you can  help to awaken. Once the center at the navel is activated and freed and  the organs are detoxified, the process of healing can be completed by  your students through their own discipline. Eventually you will learn to  feel and “see” inside another. Those who come to you will do so because  they are uncomfortable with their spirits and bodies.

Your intention should be to help them become serene and peaceful within themselves.

Always remember the source of your real power. The secret  touch has warmed bodies, spirits, and homes in every land throughout  time. It is a touch of the heart when you freely give of yourself to  another. You will find that the loving touch has enormous power to heal  and renew lives and spirits.

Both professional healers and those seeking healing will  learn how to raise their vibration, tap into Heaven and Earth energy,  and digest this Cosmic Chi easily into the body. You can apply this  healing chi to yourself, or on family, friends, clients or animals. This  course is a must for massage therapists and other energy medicine  practitioners, is very heart-centered and also lots of fun. No prior  experience required.
