Einstein showed us that everything is made of, and radiates, energy.
Inside of you is an intelligent, energetic system that maintains health and balance. This subtle form of energy supports, shapes, and enlivens our physical body and activates our lives.
For the past 3,000 years, practitioners of acupuncture have called this intelligent energy Qi (pronounced “chee”). Qi describes the body’s innate healing abilities, which are activated through acupuncture meridian points.
Numerous cultures have described this energy and called it by many names: prana, baraka, pneuma, spirit, wakan, material force, vital force, orgone, ether, and ruach.
Qi Animates the Body,
Qi is the vital energy in all living things, from the tallest tree to the smallest cell.
Qi is a combination of energies, mixed together from our food, air, and inherited constitution.
Qi animates the body and protects it from illness. It is necessary for growth, development, movement, maintenance of body temperature, and overall regulation of the body. Our health is influenced by the quality, quantity, and balance of Qi.
Ancient practitioners said, “When Qi gathers, the physical body is formed; when Qi disperses, the body passes on.”
Meridians Carry Qi
Meridians are like rivers inside the body.
Wherever a river flows, it carries water that provides nourishment and sustenance for life on our planet.
Similarly, meridians are the rivers where Qi flows inside of us.
Qi flows through meridians, providing energy and nourishment to the body’s cells, tissues, muscles, organs, and glands.
Stressors Affect the Flow of Qi
Different stresses affect meridians and organ systems in different ways, affecting the quality and disrupting the flow of Qi.
If a garden hose is blocked, it can not provide an adequate supply of water to a plant. Eventually the plant will be unable to grow, blossom, and thrive.
Likewise, a blockage in the meridians will restrict the supply of qi required to nourish and support cells, tissues, muscles, organs, and glands.
When there is an imbalance or blockage in the flow of Qi, symptoms associated with the condition may appear.
Over time, the body as a whole becomes weakened, unbalanced, and its self-healing abilities are compromised. Eventually, it becomes susceptible to pain, disease, stress, anxiety, and poor health.
