Einstein demonstrated to the world that everything is made up of energy. Quantum Physics continues to provide undisputed proof that everything inside each individual is an intelligent, energetic system that has the capability of maintaining and healing the mind, body and spirit. It is this powerful energy the practitioner works with when you come in for a treatment. This energy in Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) is called Qi (pronounced chee).
In TCM, Qi is the life force flowing through all things.
Qi is ENERGY
Qi is the most basic substance of all things contained in life.
Qi flows in channels in the body and connects to specific organ systems. (Think of the channels as rivers or streams).
In TCM, when the Qi in the channels is blocked or unbalanced, illnesses occur. (Much like when a river is blocked by a beaver, it can become stuck and obstruct the flow).
Acupuncture and other Chinese Medicine modalities unblock the channels and help to restore balance to the Body, Mind, and Spirit.
