Qi Nei Zang

United States, 1998 to 2001

Rebalancing through the belly

Etymologically, Qi Nei Zang has many meanings: Qi means Energy, Nei means Internal, and Zang means organ.

In most cultures, the belly is one of the most important areas to treat because of its significant importance in health.

Qi Nei Zang, therefore, focuses on the vital organs to communicate with the central nervous system. It is one of the most effective, deep, yet gentle treatments, and its post-session benefits are undeniable.

Learning Qi Nei Zang

by Chantal Lehmann

I trained in Ayurvedic, Lomi Lomi, Thai, Shiatsu, Tui Na and Qi Nei Zang belly massage. At the same time, I discovered a method called “Korean relaxation,” which consists of acting directly on the central nervous system (CNS) through vibrations and undulations, with a rhythm and amplitude regulated as a metronome.

The effectiveness of this technique became apparent as I practiced, and the desire to integrate it into all belly treatments became obvious. Each organ or group of organs is isolated in the hands, which requires a thorough knowledge of abdominal anatomy. Once again, we understand the importance of taking our time in action to allow the body time to receive the information. It takes an average of 2.5 minutes of constant vibrations and undulations of impeccable amplitude and rhythm to reach the CNS.

You come out of the session with the sensation of walking on a cotton cloud. This treatment is extremely balancing. If you arrive tired, it will give you energy. Conversely, if you arrive stressed and tense, it will relax you deeply and rebalance the direction of your energies.

I trained in Qi Nei Zang in the United States between 1998 and 2001 and in Hong Kong in 2004 with several Chinese doctors and teachers.
