Understanding Qi and working with its full potential

What is Qi? Qi (pronounced “chee”) is the mysterious force that links spirit and substance.

For purposes of this discussion there are two different kinds of Qi: A Cosmic Qi and a Human Qi.  The Cosmic Qi encompasses all matter.  The Human Qi is what makes us move, breathe and remain alive.  Qi represents the energy flow/field in the human body and is the underlining principle in acupuncture theories and treatments.

Qi has four activities: ascension, descension, entering and exiting.  Qi moves in every organ, vessel, tissue and meridian in the body.  If the Qi is obstructed inside the body, a person will become weak.  If the Qi is out of balance a person will become ill.  In other words, the proper balance of Qi determines the wellness and vitality of a person.

“Cure of the disease is impossible without the application of the right needle!” (according to the Yellow Emperor-Book of Acupuncture, Chapter 7)  The right needle is obviously an important link in achieving the maximum effectiveness of acupuncture.

Needles constructed with components that are not electrically conductive, such as plastic handle or a silicone coated needle body, will diminish the ability of a needle to induce the Qi sensation.

To maximize the effectiveness of acupuncture and the flow of Qi, it is imperative to use a needle that is constructed completely of metal.  The needle is the only tool for the treatment of the patient and the goal is to capture the Qi for the treatment to be successful.

Qi needs to balance to have good health. Handling the imbalance with acupuncture is common. This can avoid many illnesses.

You can have too little qi and too much qi. Pollution plays a major factor: polluted air and water can stress your system and create imbalance.

Acupuncture is considered essential to health because it stimulates the flow of Qi energy and allows for smooth movement of energy in the body.

For improved mood, improved body function and increased energy, acupuncture is a safe alternative to drugs. And if you suffer from pain, it’s worth it for the same reasons.
