Description of Class:

In this two-hour Zoom class:

Chi Nei Tsang is gentle massage of the abdomen with the intention of bringing more chi and movement to the internal organs. CNT results in better breathing as the ribs and diaphragm relax, improved digestion and elimination as connective tissue restrictions are softened. We will be exploring a simple beginning treatment session which will address the breath and facilitation of better peristalsis in the large intestine, with a focus on the Metal element in Chinese Medicine.

Handouts will only be available in the zoom class chat, if you want the downloads you will need to be signed in to Zoom.
