practices that encourage the movement of chi thru meridians or other tissues of the body to affect wellness
"Chi" means energy and "Nei Tsang" means internal organs. Chi Nei Tsang was originally developed by Chinese Taoist monks to strengthen their bodies to carry the energy required to perform their spiritual practices. Practitioners work CNT points on the abdomen and the body to train internal organs to work more efficiently and to improve energy flow in the body. Mary Ellen is a Chi Nei Tsang Senior Teacher of levels 1 thru 3 in the Taoist system brought to the west by Master Mantak Chia.
Reiki (pronounced ray-kee) in Japanese means "universal life energy." It is a healing technique of transmitting life energy by placing the hands gently in specific positions either on or above the body. This laying-on of hands is designed to relieve pain, restore vitality, heal illnesses, and aid spiritual growth. It was developed by Dr. Mikao Usui, a Christian monk in Japan, who came upon ancient manuscripts revealing the healing system in the 19th century. Mary Ellen is a Reiki Master.

Within the craniosacral system is the cerebrospinal fluid that moves in a slight but perceptible tide-like manner. Craniosacral therapists assist in facilitating change in areas of restriction where this tide-like motion is limited, confined, and immobilized. By using a gentle light touch, this fluid becomes more rhythmic and balanced, and the central nervous system is restored. Mary Ellen has studied with Dr. John Upledger.
