What Is Chi?


Chi…

 

Also known as Qi, is a Chinese word used to refer to all types of energy.

In Chinese philosophy, this energy is the circulating life energy or “vital/natural force”  behind all that fills the universe.

Energy is found throughout the natural environment.  It gives life to the universe, the planet, the weather, and all life.   In China, understanding the energy of the natural world and cultivating our human energy is an art that has been passed down from master to student for over 27 centuries.

 Within the human body, Chi is like a free river flowing circulating throughout the physical body in channels called meridians.  It’s known that when that Chi is strong and flowing freely it activates, regulates and balances our bodily activities filling us with vitality, relaxation and an all-around feeling of mental and physical well-being.

 It’s when this energy becomes blocked, stagnant or unbalanced in some manner that leads us to tension, discomfort, and illness.

 This imbalance of free-flowing Chi can be corrected with practical exercises that are intent upon optimizing the functional aspects of good health.

This concept can be best summarized by the difference in the definition of  “ILLNESS.”    Where Western society refers to illness “disease”,  Eastern society refers it to “dis-ease.”

Our goal at Freedom Chi is to share our extensive knowledge of these ancient martial arts and wellness techniques with everyone that has a desire to strengthen their Chi and ensure open paths to create and maintain a relaxed body and free-flowing Chi.

 

“The best definition of Chi is the experience of Chi.”
