Qi (Ch'i) "life force" or "spiritual energy"
Yin Yang | Qi | Elements | TCM | Causes | Diagnosis | Meridians

Qi permeates everything in the universe. It is life force energy. We have the Qi that we are born with and the ‘post natal’ Qi we cultivate through air, food and water. A healthy and happy person is a dynamic but harmonious mixture of all the aspects of Qi that make up who we are.

Every organ and system in the body has its own form of Qi. And there is the Qi that emanates specifically from trees, flowers, lakes and mountains. Qi is the body's vital energy which circulates through the channels and permeates the body. For optimum health and vitality, the Qi of the body and mind must remain in a state of balance. If the flow of Qi is disrupted, due to physical trauma, poor nutrition or emotional strain, for example, illness may result.
