About Qi

Traditional Chinese Medicine believes that people are an integrated whole, with no separation between mind, body and spirit, and that our wellness is maintained by a life force or vital energy called "qi" (pronounced chee).

Qi, or energy, is the structural building block of all matter and life, a concept that today's quantum theory is quick to confirm.  Through the healthy flow of Qi, this vital network that connects everything within the body and informs change, is maintained and restored.

The stagnation or depletion of qi in the body causes disease and pain, whereas the smooth, regulated flow of qi brings health and wellness
