Chi Nei Tsang abdominal massage – CNT organ massage

Experience the power of abdominal massage – Chi Nei Tsang in action!

Immerse yourself in a world of relaxation and well-being through specialised abdominal massages. This experience focuses on body, mind and spirit, offering holistic energy work and using traditional Chinese techniques to harmonise the abdomen.

My abdominal massages offer holistic energy work.
Chi Nei Tsang: A traditional Chinese (Tao) technique specifically aimed at harmonising the abdomen.
Traditional Thai abdominal massage and Tok Sen: A customised treatment for your individual well-being.
Relaxation massage: Energetic abdominal relaxation.

An important aspect of my Chi Nei Tsang massage is the focus on breathing as a tool to deepen relaxation and release tension. During the massage, I encourage you to focus on your breathing and release the tension in your abdomen by consciously breathing in and out. Your deep, rhythmic breathing helps to relax your body and at the same time activate the flow of energy in your abdomen.
Chi Nei Tsang (CNT) with a focus on meditative breathing therefore offers not only physical, but also energetic and emotional benefits. It promotes holistic balance and awareness, using breathing as a bridge to harmonise body, mind and spirit.

Important information about abdominal massage:

Chi Nei Tsang by Mantak Chia (Universal Healing Tao) is a form of massage that focuses on the abdominal organs and has its origins in traditional Chinese medicine. Here are some potential benefits of these specialised massages:

Relaxing the abdominal muscles: chi nei tsang aims to release tension and blockages in the abdominal muscles, which can lead to improved relaxation and better functioning of the abdominal organs.
Promoting digestion: By working on the abdominal organs, CNT can stimulate digestive function and alleviate irregularities such as constipation or flatulence.
Energetic balancing: Taoist abdominal massage regards the abdomen as the energy centre of the body. The massage aims to harmonise the energy flow in the abdomen and thus improve the general energetic balance in the body.
Relieving emotional stress: In traditional Chinese medicine, it is believed that emotional tensions and blockages can be stored in the abdomen. Chi Nei Tsang can help to release these blockages and thus contribute to the relief of emotional stress.
Supporting the immune system: By helping to improve energy flow and reduce stress, Chi Nei Tsang can indirectly strengthen the immune system and promote the body’s overall resistance to disease.
Promoting awareness and mindfulness: Massage can help to raise awareness of one’s own body and its needs. This can lead to improved mindfulness in everyday life.
Stress reduction: Let go of everyday tensions and experience deep relaxation in the abdominal area.
Digestive support: Promote digestive functions for improved well-being.
Abdominal massage for constipation: Abdominal massage relieves constipation, promotes intestinal motility and improves blood circulation in the abdominal area. Gentle massage movements help to release blockages and increase well-being.
Emotional relief: Free yourself from emotional blockages and promote a positive emotional balance.
Energy channelling: Direct the energy in the abdominal area for physical and mental balance.

Here are some preventative suggestions for abdominal massage that both indicate possible needs and serve to preventively promote well-being.

Digestive problems / Chronic constipation: Abdominal massages can help to aid digestion, reduce bloating and relieve irregularities such as constipation.
Stress and emotional tension: Chi Nei Tsang aims to release emotional blockages in the abdomen, which can help to reduce stress and promote emotional balance
Abdominal pain: Chi Nei Tsang can have a soothing effect on abdominal pain that cannot be attributed to specific medical problems.
Menstrual cramps: Women with menstrual cramps may benefit from Chi Nei Tsang as it tends to relieve cramps and improve overall comfort.
Infertility: CNT stimulates internal organs such as ovaries, fallopian tubes and uterus.
Supporting liver function: As the liver is located in the abdomen, Chi Nei Tsang can help to support liver function and promote detoxification of the body.
Energetic blockages: In the tradition of traditional Chinese medicine, it is believed that chi blockages in the abdomen can affect the overall energy balance of the body. Abdominal massages can help to release these blockages.

Contraindications:
Although abdominal massages can have many positive effects, there are certain contraindications and situations in which the use of massage should be avoided or performed with caution. Here are some contraindications:
Acute inflammation: Abdominal massage should be avoided in cases of acute inflammation in the abdomen or digestive tract. The massage could aggravate the inflammation or be uncomfortable.
Recent abdominal operations
Hernias or abdominal wall hernias
Inflammatory bowel disease: People with inflammatory bowel diseases such as Crohn’s disease or ulcerative colitis should consult their doctor before having a massage, as massage may be contraindicated in some cases.
Fever / colds: If you have an acute fever or infection in your body, you should refrain from massages to avoid putting additional strain on your body.
Cancer diseases
Abdominal aortic aneurysm
Pregnancy Intrauterine device / IUD

Preparation before an abdominal massage:
Careful preparation is essential to ensure the best experience and outcome from your abdominal massage. Here are some recommendations:
Diet: it is strongly recommended not to eat a meal at least 2 – 4 hours before the massage. This allows for a better effect of the massage as the stomach is not busy digesting.
Fluid intake: Ideally, you should refrain from consuming large amounts of fluids about an hour before the massage so as not to strain the abdomen.
Menstruation: Women who are menstruating should refrain from abdominal massages to avoid any discomfort.

After the massage:

After the abdominal massage, it is advisable to switch to light, healthy food. This not only supports the relaxed state of the body, but also promotes the positive effects of the massage. In addition, it is recommended to drink plenty of water or enjoy herbal tea to hydrate the body and support the cleansing process.
Conscious preparation and the right aftercare measures help to maximize the positive effects of the abdominal massage and provide an all-round relaxing experience.
