How does Qi travel?
Qi circulates through the blood, along the blood vessels. There are 14 main channels or vessels throughout the body. Each is connected to specific organs and glands. The vessels are like rivers. Where a river flows, it transports life-giving water that nourishes the land, plants and people. In the same way, our vessels transport life-giving Qi & Blood to nourish and energize every cell, organ, gland, tissue and muscle.
When Qi and Blood flows freely throughout the body, one enjoys good physical, mental and emotional well-being. An obstruction of Qi anywhere in the body is like a dam, backing up the flow in one area and restricting it in others. This blockage can hinder the distribution of the nourishment that the body requires to function optimally.
