About me

Gilles Marin is the Founder and Director of the Chi Nei Tsang Institute and TaoTouch® in Northern California.

Gilles moved to the United States in 1980, where he received his Black Belt in Aikido and became a student of Tai Chi Chuan under Martin Inn. During this period, he studied the principles and theories of Traditional Chinese Medicine with Dr. Stephen T. Chang, completing a program of study which included Chi-Kung or Vital Energy Cultivation, Classical Chinese Herb Formulas, Principles of Acupuncture, Taoist Sexology, the I-Ching or the art of consulting oracles and reading augurs, and Feng-Shui, the ancient Chinese art of geomancy. He began his professional practice and teaching massage therapy in 1982. In the spring of 1983 Gilles stumbled upon one of Master Mantak Chia's lectures on Taoist disciplines, beginning his involvement with Master Chia's International Healing Tao System that has lasted to this day. Gilles is certified by Master Chia to teach the International Healing Tao System and Chi Nei Tsang.

Gilles has developed the practice of Chi Nei Tsang for decades, offering one of the most advanced training programs today- online and in person. It goes back to the root of Taoist philosophy and internal qigong practices. The Chi Nei Tsang taught in TaoTouch is truly holistic and non-invasive, helping people heal from within.

My Philosophy of Care

I started early in life studying the martial art of Aikido, learning how to work WITH another person's energy, and realizing how this can be applied to helping others.

What You Can Expect On Your First Visit

Deeply transformational, yet also relaxing.

My Inspiration

This ancient practice is truly holistic- treating the whole person and not symptoms. While connecting with the breath and internal organs, this work addresses structural, metabolic and emotional aspects of the self to help you do your own healing from within, naturally and effortlessly.
