Chi Nei Tsang (CNT) Therapy at MindBody Med in Seattle, WA, is a centuries-old healing touch created by Chinese Taoist monks. A gentle to deep massage is applied to the abdominal region to work the internal organs energetically. The intention is to release trapped emotions and improve both physical and mental health.
Chi Nei Tsang Philosophy
Chi Nei Tsang translates to “working the energy of the internal organs” or “internal organs chi transformation.” CNT is based on the philosophy that unresolved emotional issues can become trapped in the digestive system.
Practitioners believe that poor “emotional digestion” can contribute to poor health, physically, mentally, and spiritually.
What Conditions Does Chi Nei Tsang Treat?
Although CMT focuses on the digestive system, it can energetically affect all systems in the body, helping to balance and unblock energy pathways. Qi, referred to as the life force in Traditional Chinese Medicine, can flow freely. The result is improved health mentally, emotionally, and spiritually.

What Is A CNT Session Like?
On the day of your appointment, plan to eat and drink normally. Make sure to wear comfortable clothing. Your Chi Nei Tsang practitioner will go over your health history, concerns, and goals.
You will lie comfortably on a table with your abdomen exposed. A session consists of abdominal massage with guided breathing and may also include meditation techniques.
What Does This Type Of Bodywork Feel Like?
The goal is to release negative energies and detox the internal organs, tissues, and bones. Most people have a deep sense of relaxation both physically and mentally during their sessions.
Afterward, you may feel revitalized and full of energy. It’s also completely normal to feel tired and require a nice long nap. Vivid dreams after receiving a CNT session have also been reported.
Regular CMT Sessions Are More Effective
Many holistic health practitioners believe emotions literally need to be “digested” by our internal organs, and CNT can help facilitate this process. After receiving several sessions of Chi Nei Tsang, your therapist will start to recognize imbalances, energy blockages, and patterns in your body so we can address them even more effectively.
