EXTRACT OUT OF THE BOOK : HEALING FROM WITHIN WITH CHI NEI TSANG BY GILLES MARIN

…Chi Ni Tsang’s power lies in working from the center toward the outside by focusing on the abdomen and the naval area. The lower abdomen is the very center of the body, the place from which breath and movement originate. It’s the structural center of gravity and the center of metabolic processes such as digestion, detoxification, and energy processing . In traditional Oriental Medicine and martial arts this center, called the  aura in Japanese, or tauten in Chinese, is believed to be the bodies center of energy, the powerhouse where vital energy originates.”

The abdominal area, with the internal organs and their internal structures, holds the secrets of a person: things we hide from ourselves. The body holds all kinds of strategies for addressing conflict, personal history, personality, tendencies. Thus, the abdominal structure holds the secret of the future, of a person’s life purpose. Any deviation from that purpose brings us in direct conflict with ourselves and causes illness. When practitioners work on the structure of client’ naval and are able to localise tensions and obstructions, they are also putting clients in touch with the direction of their lives. Chi Nei Tsang helps people to reconcile internal conflicts that prevent self realisation and self manifestation.
