Chi Nei Tsang, Taoist Massage, My personal experience
Mantak Chia Taoist Master
Che Nei Tsang
Chi Nei Tsang, where the hands are used to direct the Chi (Qi) through the belly region distributing the energy throughout the body. When done properly with deep breathing, toxins and gas are expelled from the belly along with tension. The nervous system is calmed, and revitalized. Deep emotional issues are magically resolved healing physical problems too.
What do I mean by this! The Taoist Monks and Nuns knew a way to reach deeper issues hiding in the seat or center of the body where the major organs are, and knew how to clear toxins due to stomach congestion, and stagnant (Qi), causing mental disruption, and emotional stress, we don't truly know if one leads to the other. My teaching tells me they do coincide, tummy upset and mental stress.
When you are fearful or upset it causes tightness, and the acid in the tummy gets churned up, the organs of the body go into over drive. If you experience fright or flight often, then it's a rap, meaning ulcers chronic indigestion, Cronin disease,and a long list of things can happen. Being in tune with your body functions, breathing and working with the modality of Chi Nei Tsang, brings awareness to the digestive system, and one is able to work on self when noticing tension creeping in.
What can a person do to stop this tension? Is it the food they eating? Is it their environment? Is it the way their boss speaks to them at work? The breath is the magical reset button to calm the agitation in the gut. Gut feelings can not be ignored

History and Recferences provided by Wikipidea:
Chi Nei Tsang 氣內臟 is a hands-on holistic health practice of ancient Chinese Taoist tradition, rediscovered and further developed by Chi-Kung (Qigong in Chinese Pinyin: Chi-based internal exercises and functional meditations). Master Mantak Chia and his lineage of students and practitioners support the tradition. Chi Nei Tsang involves the application of Chi-Kung in the manual treatment of the viscera (Nei-Tsang) and the deepest internal structures of the body. Following the classical Taoist model, Chi Nei Tsang simultaneously heals the physical, mental, emotional and spiritual aspects of the individual. Originally, Taoist monks and nuns practiced Chi Nei Tsang to enhance their health, detoxify their organism, and upgrade the quality of their Chi (Qi) so that they could successfully, and safely practice the highest-level spiritual meditation formulas of enlightenment. Once a practice of legendary fame at the imperial court of China and in the numerous Taoist temples across the country before the Chinese Cultural Revolution, Chi Nei Tsang has now virtually disappeared from China, along with many other Taoist practices of a spiritual nature, under the current Chinese communist ideology (Healing from Within with Chi Nei Tsang, 1999, G. Marin North Atlantic Books).
The contemporary form of Chi Nei Tsang, as being taught by Master Mantak Chia and his disciples worldwide, is deeply rooted in three different traditions: Classical Taoist Chinese Medicine, Traditional Internal Medical Thai Massage, and Western holistic medicine. The combination of these three traditions is actually congruent with the ancient Taoist philosophy of change and impermanence: The Tao meaning "the Way", "the right manner" and "the Right Way to live healthily in this place and age". With its holistic approach, its medical science coming from the depth of classical Chinese wisdom and using the precise technology of traditional Thai medical massage, Chi Nei Tsang has been able to provide deep transformative and permanent healing to the widest range of people worldwide regardless of belief system, culture or tradition.
