What Is The Meridian System?

Chinese medicine is based on the belief that there is a distribution network for the fundamental substances; such as Qi (pronounced chee) throughout the body. This distribution network called the Meridian System looks like a giant web, linking different areas of our body together. Its pathways make up a comprehensive yet complex body map that supplies vital energy to every part of the body.

What is Qi?

Qi is (in its most basic definition) energy. Qi embraces all manifestations of energy, from the most material aspects of energy (such as the earth beneath your feet, and flesh & blood) to the most immaterial aspects (light, movement, heat, nerve impulses, thought, and emotion). It is in a state of continuous flux, transforming endlessly from one aspect of Qi into another. It is neither created nor is it ever destroyed; it simply changes in its manifestation.
