For 20 years I've been helping people to unwind from stress and get relief from:

Digestive Problems,
Blocked Energy
Chronic Pain
And Much More

As a Chi Nei Tsang practitioner I work mainly on the abdomen with a deep, soft and gentle touch, to train internal organs to work more efficiently and free blocked energy.

The abdomen is the place in our body where we hold our emotions and tensions, the roots of our problems. Whatever your symptoms, I work with you as a whole person helping you to experience more health and vitality, and to relax and enjoy life. I invite you to experience it for yourself.

I enjoy helping people with emotional and digestive stress to relax and enjoy life. My passion is to help people to be empowered and live life to the fullest. As a Chi Nei Tsang (CNT) practitioner I use a gentle and precise healing touch on the abdomen to gently release blocked energy, strengthen and detoxify the internal organs and the whole body. Healing is a normal process. Our bodies hold the information needed to heal.

With CNT I help people to go to the very roots of physical and emotional problems. In order to do this I provide the safety and support to work on very subtle and deep levels. Here are some of the wonderful experiences clients have reported.
All my life I have been fascinated with healing and creativity. When I first began receiving CNT sessions myself, I noticed a surge in my creativity. Now I am dedicated to promote the creative impulse in all my clients. So, in addition to specializing in healing from stress and trauma, I specialize in helping people with creative blocks. Writers, dancers and other artists are a joy to work with. I believe that there's creativity in everyone asking for more expression.

Chi Nei Tsang

Chi Nei Tsang

Fifteen years ago I discovered Chi Nei Tsang (pronounced Chee Nay T-sang) . I’d been working with people to help them recover from stress, digestive problems, anxiety, and trauma and was wondering if there was a way to not only know the story of what happened to them, but to recover from the affects of their traumas.

I found out that the Taoists in ancient China realized that negative emotions in the body have a negative affect on one’s health, impairing both physical and spiritual functions. They learned that each human emotion is an expression of energy, and that certain negative emotions may be the underlying cause of many physical ailments. The Taoists discovered that most illnesses could be healed when these negative energies and toxins were released from the body.

They developed the art of Chi Nei Tsang to recycle and transform negative energies that obstruct the internal organs and cause stress and illness. Chi Nei Tsang is a gentle and precise healing touch on the abdomen that gently releases blocked energy, strengthens and detoxifies the internal organs and the whole body.

I learned that at every moment all the internal organs of our bodies are in deep communication with one another. Rather than machines, we are highly refined and sensitive organisms. Our internal organs are us! This seems strange because we identify mainly with our thinking, our internal dialogue. Chi Nei Tsang is a comprehensive approach to energizing, strengthening, and detoxifying the internal system.

Customer Testimonials

I am thankful to the reviewers here who helped me to decide to see her in-spite of more than an hour long drive to an area which I had never been to.
Karen is very skilled at her work and genuinely caring, which is a great combination for the service she provides. She pays close attention and very importantly being non judgmental, takes mental note of what she needs to provide during session. I was surprised that she made a note of my need to be warmer amidst the vast information I was sharing and making sure to provide extra blankets without asking. Her session definitely helped me move past the issue that I saw her for. I thank her whole heartedly and recommend her (with great respect) for the service she provides to anyone who needs one.

Karen is one of the leading practitioners of Chi Nei in the Bay Area and organizes their continuing education classes whenever she can. I had chronic digestive issues and since seeing Karen they are largely resolved. Her work is all about the connection between emotional upheaval and the body - especially the digestive tract - the well known mind/body connection. I find her work perfect for those times when I need to understand and process a psychological or "in the body" issue in a non verbal way. Afterwards I have felt deeply relaxed and pensive, as though a burden was lifted. Not sure why or how...but I trust the experience. Karen is also an artist and I have found her to be intuitive, sensitive, kind and respectful.

Karen is highly intuitive and has an extremely sensitive touch. The work goes as deeply as you need. I felt an immediate impact on both my physical and emotional being.

Karen is a gifted healer. She is intuitive in knowing what I need and working with me at my own pace. In my session I reached a deep core of healing at a cellular level. It was an amazing spiritual experience and now I feel like a new woman. I have referred many people to Karen and will continue to do so.

Karen is a wonderful resource for anyone in need of Chi Nei Tsang. I have had chronic pain and inflammation of my digestive system which led me to seeking a healer. Karen's ability to listen to her clients' and bring calm to the nervous system is absolutely superb. I cannot recommend her enough to those in need of a caring practitioner who is both wise and skilled. Thank you Karen, I look forward to our next session.

My experience with Karen Pearle was quite beneficial. She was professional, and concerned for my psychospiritual development.The energy work was very helpful , Karen was innovative in her approach. I recommended a friend to her for treatment . This friend was pleased as well. The seven years that I worked with Karen were helpful in educating me about the medical application of qi -gong.

As one with an unique expertise in Traditional Chinese Medicine, I heartily recommend Karen. She is an expert in the art of Chi Nei Tsang, a deep energetic practice which clears congested energy within. Karen is highly sensitive and intuitive, a great healer!

From Our Website

Our livers and kidneys are amazing organs! They work 24/7 for us. Your liver is located in the upper right portion of your abdominal cavity, below the diaphragm and protected by your rib cage. It is the chief detoxifying organ in the body and weighs about 3 lbs. The liver has over 500 functions! It regulates most chemical levels in the blood and excretes bile, which helps to break down fats, preparing them for further digestion and absorption. All the blood leaving the stomach and intestines passes through the liver.

Now is a particularly stressful time. Especially with the political climate is in a state of flux, we need to heal on an internal level. It's going to take a while to wind down as our deepest inner resources have been overused to cope with the difficulties of our everyday lives. How can we find a way to slow down and feel calm and satisfied again? When we are under stress our bodies respond as if we are in a continual emergency. In "fight or flight mode, " our breathing and heart rate accelerate and our digestive functions slow down.
