Somatic Bodywork & Chi Nei Tsang

5 day training course

4 - 8 November 2024

Anahata, Wilderness, South Africa

Teaching CNT in Noordhoek.jpg

This 5 day CNT course is the foundation training for the Taoist/Chinese medicinal massage that addresses the underlying causes of most of our physical and emotional problems - energetic blockages and congestion in the organs and intestines, including unprocessed trauma and unexpressed emotions held in the body.



We hold all our unprocessed emotions in our bellies, and energetic cysts may form in our organs and intestines when this is compounded by stress, bad posture, bad breathing habits and diet, and lack of exercise.



CNT can restore the function of the organs and bring about a reversal of chronic ailments, both physical and psychological, assisting in emotional detoxing and even major catharsis of long held traumas. Anxiety and depression can be greatly alleviated, as well as any issues with digestion and reproductive health.



Typically women experience a relief from irregular or painful menstruation, and in many cases CNT has assisted couples having difficulty with fertility and conceiving.



Attending this training also allows the student practitioner to experience the full benefit of this deep healing journey through physical and emotional regeneration in a container of safety and support.

If you would like to attend the training as a retreat, there is accommodation available at our venue.

The training includes other aspects of somatic therapy such as understanding how some of our contracts and agreements may undermine our own personal power. Energetic blockages in the lower chakras affect our self esteem and confidence, being comfortable in our bodies, issues with intimacy and general well-being.


This is the 'engine room massage', and deals with what the Taoists call the 'lower brain' - Tantien.



We will also be briefly looking into the shadow aspects of The Helper and Wounded Healer archetypes, and how to prevent burnout so common in the helping professions, including energetic hygiene.



As a somatic bodyworker, energy healer and massage therapist with over 37 years of experience, CNT is now my most often requested modality by clients, and my preferred way of addressing the real causes of our physical and emotional problems. I share with my students my unique way of combining my knowledge of the emotional and physical body to bring about a lasting change in the lives of their clients.
