What is Chi Nei Tsang?
Chi Nei Tsang or CNT is a centuries-old holistic form of healing touch therapy. Essentially, it’s an ancient detoxifying and energizing abdominal massage which re-channels your energy to provide deep healing, balance and relaxation to your entire body, by focusing on your internal organs. Chi Nei Tsang was originally used by Taoist monks in monasteries to help detoxify, purify and strengthen their bodies in order to maintain the high energy required to perform the highest levels of spiritual enlightenment. Today CNT blends Chinese and Thai massage and meditation techniques, making it a very unique healing modality.
Purify your body, calm your mind, transform your emotions and free your spirit with a Chi Nei Tsang treatment by Ettia Tal.
How Does CNT Work?
Chi Nei Tsang literally means “working and transforming the energy of the internal organs” – think of it as an internal organs healing massage. The premise behind the practice is that all of the tensions and problems in the body can be traced back to your navel, your center, your source of life. (And you thought it all stemmed from your mother-in-law!) CNT descends directly from Taoism and the belief that the area of the abdomen, the part around and behind the belly button, is the vital center in the body for life energy.
Here’s what happens: Chi, the life-force energy, moves through the body’s internal channels; all your systems. These systems concentrate and cross paths in the tummy – think of it as Mission Control. Tensions, worries, and stresses accumulate there and tend to stay there and stew. This stress can cause physical tangling and knotting of the nerves, blood vessels, and lymph nodes, and the result is the gradual obstruction of energy circulation.
The philosophy behind CNT is that if the energy in your center becomes blocked, the body will experience pain and ill health and your energy will be all out of whack. A Chi Nei Tsang massage of the abdominal area balances the energies inside the internal organs using energetic techniques and manipulations to untangle the knots and release any toxins and obstructions. This system of health rejuvenation and maintenance is so complete that it also includes balancing your mind and your emotions, as well your essential energy, or “chi.” CNT therapy can complement and enhance almost all other healing techniques. Chi Nei Tsang will help you build your vitality and overall health from the inside out. Restore your well-being with a CNT massage from Ettia Tal at Innovative Healing Touch.

Internationally renowned Ettia Tal, of Innovative Healing Touch, concentrates on new and alternative approaches to health and wellness.

She helps to guide, heal, and transform her clients as a gifted practitioner of Chi Nei Tsang.
What to Expect at a CNT Session
Before your CNT treatment, Ettia will discuss your health history with you and any physical and/or emotional health issues you want to address. Once she has an understanding of what kind of treatment you need, you can prepare to relax in a serene, dimly lit room and let your senses take in the new age sounds and natural scents. Strategically placed pillows will be used to make you comfortable as you lie on your back on a massage table. Wear comfortable clothing that can be easily adjusted to reveal your abdominal area as you’ll be covered with the exception of your abdomen, which will be exposed from the ribcage to the top of the pelvic area. The treatment begins with some gentle touches to the abdomen as Ettia works to understand your body and sense how she can help you.
As a Chi Nei Tsang practitioner, Ettia has been trained to sense and feel blockages in the body, along with their associated energy patterns. A CNT practitioner learns to scan the body without touching it and sense energy falling or rising, expanding or contracting, and with hands on the abdomen can sense not only tension or relaxation but excess or deficiency and move to the origin of the problem. It’s hard to believe, but the organs in your abdomen influence your entire body! What occurs there, in your core, shows up in your feet, spine, head and neck! As you bring your breath to the areas being worked on, you participate in your own healing and strengthening of all these areas.
You may actually be able to feel the shifts taking place in your body. All your systems, including muscular, skeletal, endocrine, respiratory and reproductive, respond to the treatment as your body now has the opportunity to release all of its ‘stuck’ energy. You’ll come away, off the table, rejuvenated and healed with a fresh beginning for your entire being to function optimally. All negative energy is released!
