What is a session like?
The first Chi Nei Tsang session is one and a half hours. Thereafter, the sessions are one hour. You lie face up on a massage table wearing comfortable clothing, with a pillow under your knees. I help you to relax and breathe deeply. Then I work on your abdomen with a deep, soft and gentle touch.
I may also teach you self-help techniques such as abdominal self-massage, and/or give guidance about diet, breathing, cleansing and other health-related and lifestyle matters.
After treatment people often feel more “in their bodies” and much more relaxed and emotionally integrated.
How often will I need sessions?
This varies according to each person’s needs. One session is beneficial. Often people come for a series of sessions.
Some people come weekly, some every other week, once a month, or when they need to.
Clients experience relief from:
Stress, depression, anxiety, fear, grief, trauma, breathing problems, digestive disorders, menstrual problems, sleep difficulties and fatigue.
Digestive problems treated include:
Abdominal pain, irritable bowel syndrome, gall bladder pain, bloating, acid reflux, and constipation, and other digestive issues

Man is in chi and chi is within each
Heaven and earth and the
ten thousand things
require chi to stay alive.
A person that knows how to allow chi
will preserve himself
and banish illnesses
that might cause him harm.
