What is Qi?

 

 

At the core of this ancient medicine is the philosophy that Qi (pronounced "chee") is Life Energy. Depending on your perspective, the terminology can vary. Simply put, it is the same Essence that directs your body to heal itself after being wounded. You do not have to tell your body consciously to scab over and heal, it just happens naturally. Acupuncture taps into this same Essence.
