Qi Gong, Tai Chi and Healing Tao Embodied Meditations
have enormous health giving effects in all dimensions of the body.
A few sessions of Transformational Bodywork, however, can release tension and open the body,
giving the sort of space, movement and release
that would take qigong many years to manifest.

A combination of QiGong and bodywork is most efficacious.

Tao Centre Colwyn Treatments are based on a Teacher / Student relationship
rather than a Therapist / Patient relationship.
We are taught how to do the work and nurture ourself, to take responsibility for ourself.


A Combination of Medical Chi Kung, 4 Dimensional Bodywork
& Chi Nei Tsang Treatments

for physical, emotional, mental and spiritual healing.

Available from Barry Spendlove at Tao Centre Colwyn,
and wherever he is teaching.

more information

Chi Nei Tsang is a holistic approach to massage therapy of Taoist origin:
it integrates the physical, mental, emotional and spiritual aspects of oneself.
CNT goes to the very origin of health problems, including psychosomatic responses.
Chi Nei Tsang literally means, "Working the energy of the internal organs" or "Internal organs chi transformation".

CNT is a form of "Applied Chi-Kung". Practitioners work mainly on the abdomen with a deep, soft and gentle touch,
to train internal organs to work more efficiently and release unprocessed emotional charges.
All of the body systems are addressed:
digestion, respiration, lymph, nervous, endocrine, urinary, reproductive, skeleton-muscular and the acupuncture energy system.

A treatment consists of Chi Nei Tsang abdominal massage combined with 4 Dimensional Bod¥work.

Detoxification: CNT manipulations help clients release their body of excess stagnation;
improving elimination and stimulating the lymphatic and the circulatory system.
It also strengthens their immune system increasing resistance to diseases.
It helps other health care modalities to achieve optimal results
(students using it before and after surgery recover better and faster).

Restructuring and strengthening the body:
By working on the visceral structures and positioning of internal organs
CNT stimulates them into working better,
helping to correct the postural problems resulting from visceral imbalances.
It releases deep-seated tensions and restores vitality.
CNT has been helpful against chronic pains such as back, neck and shoulder pains
and problems related to misalignment of the feet, legs and pelvis.

Improving emotional life:
Most of our unprocessed emotional life is stored in our digestive system waiting to be addressed.
Poor emotional digestion is one of the main reasons for ill health.
CNT allows the process of emotional life to unfold and clarify,
making it possible for individuals to evolve and grow.

CNT teaches clients to know themselves better:
we believe that everyone is responsible for ones own health
and that it starts from within.
Students are taught techniques to improve their breathing,
fundamental self-help massage techniques
and receive guidance in personalising their diet and other health related life style matters.
Specific and relevant visualisation and meditation practices are also used
to further enhance the effect of manual treatments.

Chi Nei Tsang is an integral part of the Universal Tao system created by Mantak Chia.
It uses all the wisdom and skills cultivated in ancient Chinese disciplines
such as Tai-Chi-Chuan, Chi-Kung and Taoist esoteric meditations of "Awakening" and "Enlightenment".
As such it is a complete system of physical, mental, emotional, and spiritual development
that emphasizes teaching students to work on themselves to raise their spirit,
recycle negative energies from treatments
and increase the capacity to carry healing power.

Barry Spendlove is a certified practitioner of Chi Nei Tsang and is a Senior Instructor in the Universal Tao system.
