Translated directly, Qi, “Chi”, or “Ki” (pronounced “Chee”) is energy. In Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM), Qi is the animating force inside of all things. Without Qi you would not be you. Not in body, mind, or spirit.
When Qi is blocked, sickness, pain, depression, and disease occur. When Qi flows, happiness, ease, flow, and joy are the natural results.
Qi travels through “Energy Highways” inside your body called “Meridians.” The exercise flows, and stretches of Qi Gong help keep your meridians clear so that Qi can flow easily.
