THE CAUSES OF SICKNESS: Obstructed organs and congestion in the abdominal organs store unhealthy energies that can overflow into other bodily systems and surface as negative emotions and sickness. Always in search of an outlet, they may fester in the organs or move into the abdomen, which is the body’s garbage dump. The abdomen can process some emotional garbage, but more often it can’t keep up with the flow. The energetic center in the navel becomes congested and cut off from the rest of the body.
A METHOD TO CLEAR BLOCKED ENERGY: Chi, the life-force energy, moves through the body’s internal channels, nervous system, blood vessels, and lymph glands. These systems concentrate and cross paths in the abdomen, which acts as their control center. Tensions, worries, and stresses of the day, month, or year accumulate there and are seldom dispersed. These disturbances can cause physical tangling and knotting of the nerves, blood vessels, and lymph nodes. The result is the gradual obstruction of energy circulation.
The ancient Taoists realized that negative emotions cause serious damage to one’s health, impairing both physical and spiritual functions. They understood each human emotion as an expression of energy and that certain emotions could indicate the negative energy behind many physical ailments. They also identified a specific cycle of relationships between emotions and the organs. For example, the experience of a “knot” in one’s stomach indicated the presence of worry, which is the negative emotion that accumulates in the stomach and spleen.
The Taoists discovered that most maladies could be healed once the underlying toxins and negative forces were released from the body. They developed the art of Chi Nei Tsang to recycle and transform the negative energies which obstruct the internal organs and cause knots in the abdomen. Chi Nei Tsang also clears out toxins, bad emotions and excessive heat “or heat deficiencies” that cause the organs to dysfunction.
Chi Nei Tsang is also the most comprehensive approach to energizing, strengthening, and detoxifying the internal systems. It is useful in relieving intestinal blockages, cramps, knots, scar tissue, headaches, menstrual cramps, poor blood circulation, back pain, infertility, impotence and many other health conditions.
