The body developed out of us,

not we from it.

We are bees,

and our body is a honeycomb.

   We made the body,

cell by cell we made it.




Chi Nei Tsang (pronounced CHEE-NAYT-SAHNG) is a Five Elements based healing modality which awakens our bodies, minds, souls to life by using our hands to directly access, detoxify, and transform our internal organs.

Chi Nei Tsang is much further reaching than conventional massage because its three foundational elements (breath, manual manipulation, and applied Chi Kung) support the recipient to feel more deeply into his or her life by experiencing what’s happening in the belly, our larger and probably smarter brain.

As we feel and accept the parts of ourselves we have believed unacceptable, we grow as human beings and heal in body, mind, spirit and we find freedom. Healing happens on the metabolic, structural, and emotional levels equally.

The Chi Nei Tsang practitioner uses her or his hands directly on the abdomen of the recipient (sometimes referred to as “student” because he or she is learning different ways to know more about themselves) to find the patterns of tension held in the vital organs.

The practitioner gently and deeply manipulates the student’s belly, so the student’s parasympathetic nervous system is activated, allowing her or him to utterly unwind. In this state of safety and profound relaxation we can meet ourselves without judging and we have the ability to grow out of healing crises ranging from depression and addiction to digestive issues, infertility, painful menses/transition to menopause, back pain, structural issues, fibroids, impotence, and the list goes on and on. (I’m not suggesting discontinuing a doctor’s care when necessary. Chi Nei Tsang works wonderfully to support us in our healing journey when we’re working with conventional medicine.)

Chi Nei Tsang was developed thousands of years ago by Taoist monks to prepare themselves for the highest spiritual practices. Perhaps the highest spiritual practice of our time is to make our way clearly through the distractions of modern life, the pain of our personal histories, and the collective inherited traumas of our families and the world and begin to navigate life with love and self acceptance.


“There is no intelligence required for healing. To heal, we don’t need to be intelligent, we don’t need to be good, and we don’t need to deserve it. Healing is pure grace. To heal, we do need honesty. We need to be true to ourselves. We need to be able to admit that we have feelings we wish we didn’t have. We need to own these feelings so we can outgrow them, and so we can mature as human beings.” -Gilles Marin

What People Are Saying. . .

Weeks after a Chi Nei Tsang session, I still experience changes in my thoughts and insights about myself. My consciousness has increased in how I function in my work and relationships and what makes me unhappy in those as well. I have better insights on my motives and reasons for choices. Insights– clearly the greatest thing we can give ourselves!!! You can feel how it opens you up for something greater in life….Awesome feeling!

-Monica, Stockholm, SE

My pronated knee issues are dwindling away. I am able to do full deep squats now. My circulation is improving. My joints have less congestion so better fluidity. Habits and behaviors that have tripped me up for years are easing up. Some, not an issue any longer. They have lost their charge. Mother buttons lessening! … My sexual energy and sense of humor are coming out more. I’m more relaxed. I can be in situations that usually have me uncomfortable on some level.

I was used to having a bowel movement every four days or so because of a bowel resection surgery many years ago. Ellie gave me two Chi Nei Tsang sessions and I am now enjoying satisfying bathroom time daily.
