OFT Level 2: Chi Nei Tsang – Extraordinary & Lasting Healing

CERTIFICATION
OFT Level 2: Chi Nei Tsang – Extraordinary & Lasting Healing

As healers or therapists we can learn how to create the conditions for extraordinary and lasting healing in the NOW. During this 2 day intensive hands on training Andrew will share his experience of over 30 years in creating those conditions. If you integrate and trust these unchanging principles in your own life, you will be a force for change and evolution through your touch, words and being.  The below experience is just one example of what can happen when you create the right conditions for lasting healing.

During the OFT session, I was held  in a space of safety in which I could process the most traumatizing experience of  my life and literally feel it  in my body. All the suffering was hidden there and during the OFT session I could let it go. With support I stepped into a place that allowed me to relive the pain of that moment, without pity, without judgement, the OFT  guide just was there for me and after that my body knew what to do.

Days after the session, I could still feel the work of integration that my body is doing and the energy that was released. Thank you, for the most amazing experience and for just being there for me!   Roxana Staniloaie: Bucharest Romania

  • 1. Whats is the difference between Chi Nei Tsang & OFT
     

    The main difference is in the 1st level training, (OFT Level 1) which focuses on relaxing the nervous system.  The OFT touch is applied to the spine, kidneys and adrenals to allow the Chi Nei Tsang  to go far deeper when the abdomen is finally touched. The OFT touch on the back is directly impacting the water element.

    This approach is based on Andrews many years of experience with Chi Nei Tsang where he noticed that it took a long time with Chi Nei Tsang for people to feel safe enough to feel without the minds involvement. Andrew developed OFT so that the Taoist Inner Alchemy healing principles behind Chi Nei Tsang could be experienced first hand, rather then being taught intellectually.

    The other main difference is that when you are learning the Chi Nei Tsang on the abdomen in level 2 and level 3, Andrew is sharing what he has found to be most effective over many years of his own practice. There is less emphasis on learning many techniques and manipulations and more on developing sensitivity and embodiment of the healing principles that are at the root of lasting change.

  • 3. What is Original Feeling Touch, OFT?
     

    OFT - Original Feeling Touch - is a holistic approach to therapeutic touch. It catalyses amazing and often dramatic lasting healing using non intrusive unconditional touch.  It includes Chi Nei Tsang (CNT) the Taoist abdominal techniques first introduced to the west by Mantak Chia. It's been Andrews experience that OFT  has a far deeper level of effectiveness than Chi Ne Tsang alone.

    The key to healing lies in discharging and completing the hidden energy bound up in our nervous system and in trusting our body’s own natural ability to heal, even when relating to extreme events that were traumatic and  lie far back in the past, including soul memories. The body does not really live in linear time, so an event in our childhood feels  like its present today for the body especially if the energy of that event was not completed  and digested.

     OFT was developed by Andrew Fretwell for freeing the vital life force energies that are bound up in trauma, undigested  energetic charges. Human reactions to threat are instinctive and biological, and only later do they become psychological and cognitive.
     
    This accounts why many people can have cognitive awareness therapy for years and years and understand everything that happened to them, but still not have completed the underlying charge stored in the nervous system and cells. It’s only when the energy has been released and completed at the physical level can we say real healing and change has taken place.
     
    In all cases of Trauma there are three possible responses three innate survival strategies: The flight, fight and freeze (immobility) responses.
     
    You can observe this very simply walking along a road with friend enjoying life when suddenly a loud bang happens right next to you, it’s the cars exhaust!.... but your body is reacting much faster than the cognitive awareness and most peoples body can freeze up and tighten and is ready to evade danger…..until you see there is no danger."  You then discharge the energy naturally, perhaps laughing nervously and/or your body shaking. This reaction is actually very healthy and can save your life much more effectively then the rational cognitive brain.

    Chi Nei Tsang,  is always included in OFT sessions but only after the nervous system has fully relaxed and entered the para-sympathetic healing state. This is taught in OFT Level 1

    The OFT approach first consists of the deep relaxation of the body and a clear understanding of the 4 stages of healing/growth that every human being experiences.

    The OFT touch is applied on the back, spine and the adrenal glands, to deeply relax the nervous system and create a deep feeling of saftey and trust in the receiver of OFT. It’s the core strength of the OFT approach, becoming so relaxed and safe that we allow ourselves to feel deeply during Chi Nei Tsang, without the minds involvement. OFT GOES TO THE ROOT OF ALL SYMPTOMS
