Chi Nei Tsang is one of their recognized Asian bodywork styles that meet their membership requirements. For more information, visit the AOBTA website at aobta.org.

NCCAOM Certification

Chi Nei Tsang is an Asian Bodywork Therapy that is formally recognized by the National Certification Commission for Acupuncture and Oriental Medicine (NCCAOM). The Asian Bodywork Therapy certificate exam stands equal with the practices of Acupuncture and Chinese Herbology and as one of the three delivery systems of Traditional Chinese Medicine.
